I truly hope the below will be noticed by the incredible team of St. Regis Saadiyat, who went out of their way to make sure my family will have the most memorable reunion we have ever had. Being a hotelier in Abu Dhabi my family was about to visit me for the first time and it was a thorough process when it came to choose a property to stay. My parents made a booking at this fabulous hotel and everyone was anticipating the stay so much. My personal experience started when I decided to pass by the hotel a couple of days in advance to deliver some amenities to place at my parent’s room. I was greeted by Lamiah and after our conversation I had no doubt everything would be arranged in a beautiful way because of how attentive and intuitive she was! What we have witnessed upon arrival was just beyond our expectations – the team (and I believe the butler Suchil in particular) went an extra mile and arranged the room the way my mother was almost crying. Moreover, the team managed to provide an upgrade to my parents, so the whole stay they were simply over the moon. I would love to recognize Filip who was taking care of us during these days, Varvara for her sweet orientation, amazing Jihane, Andrijana and the rest of the Front Office team! We have managed to try most of the outlets and were pampered with the service F&B associates provided! Our first dining experience started with Buddha Bar and Krishna set the bar extremely high for the rest of the hotel with the WOW service he delivered! Our Sontaya dinner was also remarkable with a fantastic quality of food, seamless service by charming Yuki and attention from Dil, who managed to accommodate all wine requests. We were given a recommendation to try MAZI and we could not ask for a better hint. Paul was literally running the show! We just trusted him and he brought all his favorite meals! Because of his excitement about us trying his cuisine we got one of the best dinners ever. I would definitely highlight outstanding breakfasts and Azamat who was taking care of my family everyday, also Brani is such a sweetheart! Fascinating location, top housekeeping service, attentive concierge team and amazing guys at the doors! Everyone was on top of their game! I believe there is no even need to mention that the property has one of the best beaches in the city, if not the best! I cannot thank you guys enough! This experience will never be forgotten. Thank you for making memories and please pass by Rosewood to say Hi! Cheers, Andrei Read less

Had another super holiday at the St.Regis.We experienced great service through all departments from house keeping, butler service through to the service at the restaurants and on the beach. All the staff we encountered were polite, professional and willing to got the extra mile. We will definitely be returning and can't wait.
