It was our first time staying at St. Regis Saadiyat Island and to describe our stay in a nutshell, it was perfection. If you want to escape the stress from the city this is the place to go which is surprising since it's just a spin away from the city itself. The room, the ambiance and the service was all amazing. But on the duration of our stay Ms. Enz, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Koko went above and beyond in providing all our requests and needs. They were so friendly and accommodating. I would also like to say thank you to Mr. Vergilio for being very friendly and attentive. But what I enjoyed the most in St. Regis was their food. I highly recommend Sontaya restaurant. The food and the service was great plus the staffs are all friendly. I had to give extra points for their breakfast as well. Foods are great plus the breakfast is until 1:00 pm and I think this is a very good move for them since a lot of guests wanted to enjoy the morning at the beach first. We really enjoyed our first stay here and I think this will not be the last. We will surely bring our family once we come back. I must say, the stay in St. Regis Saadiyat is worth your every penny!

Thank you so much to Ms. Pia the duty manager for upgrading our room to sea view. The views are amazing. A big thanks also to the butlers Anthony and Ko Ko for the suprise room decoration for my birthday with balloons, signage, card, cake and drink 🥰 Also for being so quick to attend to our requests and for always checking us if we need anything. Also to Ms. Enz for welcoming us and explaining the things that we need to know also for helping us to request the extension of our check out time. For dinner, I recommend Sontaya, their menus are so delicious and the servers are so accommodating and polite. For breakfast, we are happy cause it’s until 1PM and special thanks to Mr. Anurag for the warm welcome. We’ll surely go back again with my family and friends. Again, thank you.😊 Read less

What a world class property. Outstanding service and facilities. Hassam at the reception and Charith with the butler services took great care that we settled in well; got room upgrades as we are part of the Bonvoy club. Mathew and Akhil at the pool and recreation were engaging and very attentive. Anit (the manager) and Remi, at Sontaya made our evening meal special; if you want to have authentic Aisan food with an unbeatable ambience and view, Sontaya is a must. It was our son's birthday and the hotel made it super special for him with 2 cakes! Once you enter the St Regis, you could actually forget that you are only 15 minutes away from the city. I do not think we as a family have visited a better property in the Middle East. Read less
