My Husband and I were completely blown away by the absolute perfection of the St. Regis Saadiyat Island! As soon as you enter the hotel grounds you are transported into this beautiful, quiet, extremely well-staffed resort. We arrived off of an early flight and were immediately welcomed by valets, porters and the front desk staff. As SPG Platinums we were... More

My expectations were high, given prior experiences with St. Regis resorts in the US, and this location exceeded my expectations. We were greeted by friendly, attentive staff throughout the resort. The check-in staff (Sanja and I don't remember the other woman's name), the Sontaya restaurant staff (Cindy), and the butler service (Cyril) were the most memorable interactions. The food at...

A lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We had a beautiful room, looking out to sea with an amazing bathroom. There is an adult only pool which is great. Olea provides an amazing breakfast and also buffet lunch and dinner. The only disappointing meal was in Turquioz which wasn't up to the standard we expected. Fabulous clean beach.

We came here for business meeting. With group of six. And the experience was very nice. With the facilities on a true five star rating. With uncompromising staff services. Many to mention. Few of them are Ms.Rima on sales, Maria Prune 55&5th restaurant manager, Jaagup night manager, and to my butler Adelfo and his team. Keep it up.
