As Abu Dhabi residents, we are lucky to have access to fabulous hotels and restaurants across the Emirates and we regularly indulge in mini staycations. St Regis is, without any doubt, my favourite hotel experience in the 5 years we have lived here. The hotel is stunning. A magnificent reception area overlooking the azure waters of saadiyat island. The staff are attentive and polite, remembering names and welcoming back on the many times we have returned to eat in the restaurants. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well appointed - I could have slept for a week in that bed!! The sea views are well worth the extra cost, and being ale to sit in the tub and look out across the beach was a great touch. I do not have a single complaint about the style and quality of the room, superb. The contents of the mini bar was many and varied and no complaints there either! The only slight issue was that our room wasn't ready until 3pm (although to be fair to them, this is the standard check in time) but to make up for it we got a 6pm check out.
The pool and beach facilities are great, and both the adult and children's only pools are a great addition - the sunken pool sun loungers are a must in the hot weather. The beach was not crowded and the bar service was quick.
We have eaten at the hotel on many occasions. 55 and 5th was great, although not my favourite steak restaurant in the city. Turquoise offers some great seafood, the sardines are a particular favourite. Afternoon tea in the drawing room is delicious and can be served outside the Manhattan lounge which feels more secluded.
This was a flawless stay and I cannot rate the hotel high enough.
