My daughter treated me to an overnight here to celebrate my birthday & retirement. The whole experience was excellent.the hotel is beautiful and we were given a fantastic room with a lovely sea view. Our butler Anthony went the extra mile, I was presented with cake twice during my overnight at the hotel. Upon check in Anthony came & introduced himself bearing gifts of balloons, and said pink because I am a lady and yellow because I’m fabulous. How lovely is that!! I was also given A lovely fruit basket and a beautiful chocolate bomb cake with Happy birthday. Our room was gorgeous and nothing was too much trouble, Anthony insured someone came to draw your bath in the evening, I mean to say how wonderful is that!! Anything we needed was brought promptly. We had room service for lunch as with the COVID restrictions there are less options available,food was served promptly and really tasty. We had dinner in the Thai restaurant, again service was excellent though we were not as keen on our food there. The red duck curry wasn’t to our taste so we didn’t eat much of it. However again staff noticed and we were given complementary ice creams to make up for this. This was a perfect accompaniment to the additional celebration cake I was served in the Thai , as Anthony had made our booking for the restaurant I assumed he had advised them and we got a Molton Lava cake with a candle on it .We loved Anthony. 💓💓💓 Breakfast was a little confusing, we had booked a breakfast in advance but did not realise that this was a room service affair and the restaurant wasn’t open for breakfast during the week. Just a slight break down in communication. We were also given a late check out and I have to say the service across the whole hotel was excellent. The guys on the beach are doing a fabulous job in extreme heat wearing masks & rubber gloves. Well done guys & thanks for the lolly’s in the afternoon. All measures were taken in terms of social distancing, staff wore masks, had gloves on and all areas were disinfected when you moved on. Wonderful experience, we will be back. Well done to all of you & thanks so much. To the manager of the St Regis, you have some absolutely fabulous staff. 👏👏👏👏thanks again. Read less

Sharing my recent experience with St Regis Saadiyat - Abu Dhabi, we have booked a total of 6 rooms for a total of 11 adults and 11 kids The booking was half-board, as advertised with details of the restaurant name. We faced several concerns during our stay: - Half board was Advertised to be in a restaurant, but the fact we found it has a certain amount per adult only from menu, yet the amount was not enough to have a dinner - kids were not included for the dinner, despite the price of the room included additional kids, the cost we paid extra while booking consider higher than the cost of the actual dinner - it is a SCAM to pay for half board yet you still need to pay extra (Much) money to have a decent dinner - My booking in their system was totally different from the confirmation I have - staff not taking proper measurements for Covid-19, not wearing masks and gloves. - delays with more than an hour after 5 calls to get any service - three rooms not cleaned properly, hair, dust, dirt spot at bed cover - another room, bathroom curtain was not functioning, it was open and we were not able to close it to use the bathroom in private. Despite complaining about it three times with total ignorance - two rooms with water leaking in bathroom - They asked for a deposit, yet no receipt was provided. I do have trust that I will receive my money back, and I did, but, this is not accepted, to ensure guests do not forget. Read less
