The 5 star luxury 311 room St Regis resort hotel is situated on Saadiyat Island (although you would not realise that) some 20 minutes outside Abu Dhabi city. Beautifully designed this is indeed a 5 star hotel and one which would suit the most demanding taste.
With the exception of the suites, the rooms are essentially all the same size and differ only in their outlook and size of balcony. The beach is private with rows of sun-loungers while the hotel boasts two large pools, a smaller pool, a supervised kid's club with pool, games room and activities (suitable for up to 6 or 7 year olds) and an adult only pool, bar and sun bathing area. There are four restaurants (fish, Asian, European and the buffet plus a small poolside menu). In addition there is a fabulous spa, a huge gym with 50m indoor pool and two squash courts, tennis courts and, close by, an internationally renowned golf course. The service is impeccable and the food excellent.
The hotel operates free shuttle buses to various locations each day enabling guests to explore Abu Dhabi or visit some of the many manmade attractions such as a rafting, kayaking and surfing centre or the world's largest indoor amusement park.
