A special note to Anthony Guiron and Sarita Ghale who looked after us exceptionally well . They made our visit relaxed and effortless. Hira in the Manhattan Lounge Bar was very friendly with great service. This is the second time we have stayed at a St Regis hotel , we feel they are the best hotels we have stayed in for for great service , spacious well designed bedrooms, and facilities for families and couples alike. We loved playing golf at the neighbouring Saadiyat Golf Club and this was the view of the 6th hole from our room. Fabulous! Read less

For two people who love the Sun, idyllic settings and 5 Star service it was time to return to the St Regis Saadiyat Island after our last visit back in October 2016. This hotel is by far the best hotel in Abu Dhabi and we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit. Whilst this visit was somewhat different to the last due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing week. The hotel staff were very attentive during our stay and an extra special shout out to the Pool Attendees who continuously ensured that all guests were comfortable and had what they needed. The one thing that the St Regis gets 100% correct is the Butler Service. You are assigned Day and Night Butlers who are at your service 24/7 (if required). They go to the extreme in ensuring that your stay is as you would expect for this type of hotel and Sarita (Ghale), Lennon (Silveira) and Anthony couldn't of been more helpful. The only negative that we would have about this hotel is that they changed their Steak Restaurant to a Greek Restaurant which isn't a massive deal however, my husband loves his Red Meat! We did try to go to another hotel on the island but again due to COVID-19 by the time the booking came most hotel restaurants on the island weren't allowing any other guests other than those staying in their hotels to visit! We will definitely be back and look forward to seeing you all soon! Read less

We were staying the second time already in the St. Regis Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi. Like last time, we felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay from the first minute. Very friendly, attentive and helpful staff made our stay special. All facilities are well maintained, clean and invitingly nice! I recommended the hotel to friends after our last stay already and also they were very happy during their stay. I will keep recommending the St. Regis Saadiyat for friends and colleagues. Special Thanks to Victoriya from Ukraine and Asamat, who took very nice care of us during breakfast time. Very attentive, always with a smile and quick in the service, they made us a perfect start into the day. "Good Luck", his name is really programm, was our waiter during dinner. His positive, friendly appearance combined with his good service, makes him a very valuable Team-member of the service-Team. My congratulation to the St. Regis, to have Victoriya, Asamat and Good Luck in their team. Last not least I want to mention Enrilyn Cabras and Gary Lajo! Enrilyn surprised me with a very tasty birthday-cake, took very good care of our Suite and prepared some nice further surprises. With Gary, Butler Supervisor, I discussed some special arrangements for an upcoming stay of my family. He took my requests, discussed it with the management, and came back to me with a very satisfying result. Gary ist born for his "job"...!!! I am not surprised, that he is working very long for the St. Regis already. He is the perfect cast for this position!!! Overall I can highly recommend the St. Regis and I will come definitely again! Very Best Regards! Read less

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at this hotel but this time we had our five month old baby with us. We had such a great experience last year that it was a no brainier to come here again with the baby. The service overall was fantastic from start to end. We arrived at 2am and had a smooth check in and bags were promptly brought up. Everything we had prerequested was set up in the room (cot,baby bottle steriliser, microwave and baby bath). The butler service was so useful this time around for things such as washing the baby bottles. They were fantastic in particular Sarita and Anthony who were so so helpful the entire trip and so attentive to our needs- Our son also loved them! We had an issue with the cot whereby it was for an older child so the base is very low down- our son was too young to sleep in that and it was hard for me to bend down and put him in but the staff were so helpful in trying to find alternate solutions. The other thing I will mention is that we had hired hotel transport from the airport to the hotel and requested a car seat, however the seat provided was foward facing and for an older child who can hold their head. I was a bit hesitant putting him in there because we use a rear facing seat which supports his head and neck. Other than that, everything was perfect from start to end. We cannot wait to return again next year!!! Read less
