We stayed at the resort for 3 nights at the beginning of April, moving on to the Jumeirah at Ethiad Towers for the following 3 nights. We literally loved it!
We had a speedy check in (but we did arrive in the evening), our butler was absoloutely lovely, greeting us when he saw us again the next day. We found all of the staff to be really polite (a few did 'expect tips' for doing very little but that was the only issue). We had a great room, standard double. We did not pay extra for a sea view but we got one (side view) it was beautiful to step onto the balcony every morning and look outside.
There are a few things people should know about the hotel, but with a little research we were aware of these downfalls. Firstly, food is very expensive in the hotel and it is 30dhs to take a taxi to the coniche where there are more restaurants. Saadiyat island does not have very much to do or see or eat at the moment.
We did some research before booking and we were aware of this, hence splitting the trip between two hotels. We wanted to stay at The St Regis for the beautiful beach, unspoilt and not man made- this is exactly what we got.
We were really sad to leave, even though we were going to another 5* hotel. It was really beautiful and we are not sure why there are so many bad reviews. This almost put us off when booking, but I am so happy we did!
