Since we stepped foot in this fantastic hotel, we knew I would have an amazing time. The room was out of this earth with ocean view and round the clock service. The breakfast and specifically Gwarathi, the Manager and the extended team made our mornings memorable. The butler service was always there with the team serving us in a professional yet quite friendly manner. Mann, the Head Chef for sushi in Buddha Bar is making a humongous difference with his unprecedented sushi creations. The team in Sontaya and the Chef there are taking you directly in Thailand in a virtual taste trip. And finally, Issam, the Director of Rooms was always attentive, friendly, accommodating and one of the BEST leaders I have ever came across staying in hundreds of hotels in my life. Congratulations to the team and the St. Regis leadership for having such an amazing team onboard. Read less

Spent one night here with friends and absolutely loved it. The rooms are wonderful, the amenities feel very fresh and the service impeccable. Not to mention the food - the breakfast was just amazing and our evening brunch at Buddha Bar was one of the best meals I've had in the UAE. Could not recommend this place more!

We stayed for 1 night for my birthday last weekend, the hotel is a work of art, very beautiful rooms and the staff was super friendly, helpful and very considerate. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the UAE was the most clear water you can get in the Arabian Gulf.

We came for breakfast to Olea and it was just amazing. Apart from delicious food, the service was on the highest level as you would expect from St. Regis. Waseem made sure our morning started smooth and delicious. Scenery is a plus too!

I had booked a package to include food and activities. Two days prior to stay, reservations called to say terms and conditions had changed due to a 'system glitch' even though I had booked directly with hotel reservations team and had confirmed bookings for all meals/activities. The best they offered was removal of 2 out of 4 elements of package at an increased price. When cancelled they didn't even try to rectify an issue that was caused by their system. Extremely disappointing, especially at such short notice. Read less
