I treated myself to a weekend at the St. Regis before a week-long meeting for work in Abu Dhabi. I was very impressed by everything about the property! From the moment I stepped foot in the lobby, I felt like I had been transformed to another world. The lobby is very dramatic and impressive, and the St. Regis butler service is always a special treat. I've stayed at several St. Regis's before, and I thought the butler service here was consistent with other properties. I received an room upgrade, which provided a stunning view of the beach. The room itself was immaculate and very comfortable in Western-style design (I actually wish it felt more "local").
I enjoyed several of the restaurants and didn't experience any of the service issues that a few other reviewers have mentioned. The adult pool was great, very comfortable and quiet. However, I thought the service at the pool wasn't consistent with the other areas of the hotel. It took some wandering around and asking people to get a drink and fresh towel. The beach was nice... of course it's not the Carribbean, but it is a wide and well-groomed beach.
I was very impressed by the spa. I had two treatments, both of which were terrific.
I would definitely return to the St. Regis for some quality R&R if I were in the region again.
