Rixos Saadiyat Island Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, Middle East

The hotel

Palatial in scale, setting, design, and indulgences, Rixos Saadiyat Island needs to be experienced to be believed. Decadent décor with an utterly Abu Dhabi flavour fills every space, but it’s the setting on the white sands of stunning Saadiyat Beach that firmly root you in the luxury-loving UAE. The only all-inclusive retreat on Saadiyat Island, you can dine on delicacies from Italy to Asia at seven elegant restaurants; sip drinks at a series of beautiful bars; enjoy the fun of its beach, aqua park and wave pool; and even indulge in the ice room, Jacuzzi, and private outdoor pool of its Turkish-inspired spa.

The staff were great but unfortunately the buffet was awful due to hygiene issues and the hotel would benefit with putting hand sanitizers at the entrance to all eateries and policed by a member of staff, we were in room 2425 which… Read more

Lovely hotel, with a nice big pool, nice gardens, and a fantastic kids area. Food and drink aplenty - although the no drinks at the kids pool rule seems silly.

Lovely hotel, with a nice big pool, nice gardens, and a fantastic kids area. Food and drink aplenty - although the no drinks at the kids pool rule seems silly. Children loved it - wave pool and a separate slides and splash area kept them entertained for hours - and then the kids club too. Only thing was the main pool, at 1.4m deep, was too deep for them to relax in comfortably. Nice swim up bar - although not enough staff and always a queue... presumably helps keep consumption down though! We only stayed one night and didn’t manage to get a reservation at any of the restaurants, so had the buffet - which was better than I’d expected. Breakfast also had a great spread. Although there are tons of rooms, it didn’t feel busy. Rooms were nice, and easily slept two adults and two kids (one in a rollout). Easy check in and out and good value for all your F&B. We’ll be back! Ask for a beach view - lovely! Read less
