All about The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort

Mesmerising Mediterranean architecture meets stylish contemporary interiors in this one-of-a-kind destination overlooking the dazzling Arabian Gulf. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort provides a leisure and relaxation-filled experience close to some of Abu Dhabi’s most exciting attractions.

Swim in your choice of pools, work out in the gym and let off some steam in the Iridium Spa. Or simply explore the peaceful grounds and gardens, including Abu Dhabi’s longest stretch of pure white sand on Saadiyat Beach.

You’ll soon discover why The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort is the perfect place for your Abu Dhabi holiday. The luxury surroundings and amenities here leave little to be desired, although if there is anything you need, your private butler service will be happy to take care of it. 

A culinary destination in its own right, you can sample the finest foods in six restaurants serving flavours from around the world. And if you want some adult time, the children will be entertained at one of Abu Dhabi’s best kids’ clubs right in the heart of the resort – exclusively reserved for guests. 

If you can tear yourself away from the grounds of the resort, the incredible Louvre Abu Dhabi is a few minutes away, while the theme parks, marina and famous racetrack of Yas Island are just a 20-minute drive away.

Arts, crafts and activities

The kids will love Sandcastle Club, which is open from 8am to 7pm every day. With its own mini splash park, and multitude of indoor activity rooms, it’s an Aladdin’s Cave of games, puzzles and toys for children from one to twelve years old.

Supervised by professional Sandcastle Club staff, older children will love taking a break from the sun with the latest games consoles, while the little ones can get stuck into arts and crafts. The creative team will do face-painting and help younger children find toys or activities that they will enjoy.

Outside, the children have their own shaded pool and splash area, perfect for keeping cool and having fun in the sun. 

The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort also offers a full babysitting service. If you dream of a day on the sun lounger with just a book for company or spending date night with your partner, organise a babysitter to watch a movie in your room with your children, or simply supervise while they sleep.
