Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Virgin rating

The hotel

This sparkling Jumeirah resort sits on arguably the best stretch of sand on Saadiyat Island, a unique eco-destination which balances luxury with sustainability. It’s easy to see why they’re keen to preserve this beautiful patch of the UAE, with its nesting turtles, visiting dolphins, and twisting mangroves creating a refreshingly unspoilt holiday setting for thoughtful travellers. But, being in tune with initiatives like using reusable water bottles, doesn’t equal missing out on today’s luxuries – and Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort comes with an over-the-top menu of infinity pools (we count three), spa treatments (which are taken in a space with a sumptuous Moroccan hammam twist), and plentiful bars and restaurants (with seven venues created to let you wine and dine your nights away together).

Everyone was smiling and giving me positive energy. When It’s time to Check-In I was introduced to front receptionist Puja which made my staying in the hotel unforgettable. I had a birthday on this dates and I asked her for upgrade with a wonderful ocean view…She was very happy to hear that I have a Birthday and she gave me the best complementary upgrade. I was fully satisfied and enjoyed every my moment staying in the hotel. If you want to spend your birthday in peaceful and beautiful place with outstanding view to the ocean- Jumairah Hotel is the best choice in Saadiyat Island. I can write many more nice comments about this place but I wanted to point importance of Check-In impression. And my Check-In impression fully satisfied me expectations and needs. Read less
