My daughter and I stayed here for her 7th birthday in June. It was our first real time out of the house after lock down and prior to pools opening. The staff could not have gone further out of their way to ensure we had an amazing time celebrating my daughters birthday. We were given an upgrade to a suite and had a special delivery of a personalized cake and delivery of presents that i’d left the day before with concierge. She was blown away and felt like a true princess. The facilities in the hotel are stunning and as we could only use the beach at the time we were all given a sundowner in the evening which was an amazing touch. A truly beautiful hotel with amazing staff, we will stay again. Read less

We spend an extended weekend in St. Regis, during the Covid19 dandamic. The drive from Dubai is easy so getting away from the Hustle of the City is highly recommended. Arriving at the hotel, I was informed valet parking was suspended which is OK but the s hotel chains. The pool area, beach and grounds in general are very well kept. High standard. We used both adult pool and beach and the service we very good. In general good service through out the hotel. Dinner at the Asian resturant at the hotel was a pleasure. Great food and again good service. We also tried the Manhatten Bar resturant which is very well decorated and here the Greek food(yes Greek 😁) was very well done. Very fresh. We had a great stay and we will be comming back. Read less

Go to St Regis Saadiyat at your own risk. Any problems and they care less about you. They ruined my anniversary celebration admitted it and despite speaking to front desk and filing a complaint , didn’t even get a response. They really don’t care.

This is probably my favorite place in Abu Dhabi. Everything is perfect. The rooms are gorgeous, the bed is soft and comfortable. The staff are always pleasant and helpful from check in to check out. There are several restaurants to choose from while staying there. The pools are beautiful and we chose to visit the adult pool. The staff at the adult pool are always checking to make sure you need anything. They bring Popsicles and speared fruit around for the guests as well. Olea has a great breakfast buffet! We had dinner at Sontaya and the view at Sunset was just gorgeous. The food was incredible! This is a definite must go if you are in Abu Dhabi! Read less
