Time Out Says

When an island has beaches so pristine they attract Hawksbill Turtles to nest in their native sand dunes, you know it boasts something special.

Just a ten-minute drive away from Abu Dhabi’s city centre lies The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort – a five-star hotel that offers a butler service to take care of your every need, five massive swimming pools, along with 376 Mediterranean-inspired rooms and suites with views of the Arabian Gulf. And there are plenty of top dining options, too. Whether you’re after Asian food at Sontaya or an incredible beachfront party experience at the world’s first permanent Buddha-Bar Beach, you’ll be sure to find something to suit your taste.

Exhausted from the week? Weary travellers need to make their way to the exclusive Iridium Spa, offering relaxing treatments in a soothing environment for ultimate chill time. Literally meaning “of rainbows”, Iridium Spa has a range of treatments to choose from.

After an active break? If you’re keen on improving your swing, the resort is surrounded by Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, the Arabian Gulf’s very first beachfront course designed by South African golfer Gary Player. Put those clubs to good use.

What are you waiting for? Your quintessential island retreat is here.
