“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Invited my mom for 2 nights birthday pampering at the St Regis Saadiyat. We checked into the Superior Sea View room and were stunned with the magnificent view of the ocean. The very blue ocean and clear sky, we were just standing at the balcony staring at the view. It was beautiful. I requested the birthday cake (with price) and got it delivered over the turn down service. We had amazing dinner at the 55&5th on the first night and then Sontaya on the second night. Both restaurant won some kind of awards and they really deserved it. Quite pricey but worth every dirhams. I did not interact much with the staffs as we needed the privacy family time but the they always came around and checked if all ok. When made the booking for the Spa, I informed the reception that my mom could not speak English and she had some medical condition and she’s from Thailand, so they have booked the Thai therapist for my mom. A very nice touch which I appreciated. The sunset view over the sea is a must see if you visit this hotel. They told me that sometimes there were dolphins coming to play at the shore, unfortunately I did not see any. All in all a very nice place and I believe is one of the best birthday experience my mom had. Thank you.

Hotel rooms: beautiful beachy interior design, loved the open & walk through glass shower, beautiful views over the ocean and beach from free-standing bath tub, the higher the room the better. Great selection of pools, nice variety in breakfast buffet in main restaurant, same goes for dinner. Downside: very busy place, gets noisy, also in the restaurants, especially on weekends. Butler service can be very slow, which is annoying when you don't have any n-espresso machine in your room since all is supposedly done for you... . Compared to Hyatt next door: St Regis has better rooms and lusher grounds, but Hyatt's beautiful natural beach (w/o rocks) is definitely nicer. Careful at St Regis Beach: when you approach the water, there is a life guard sitting under an umbrella with footsies that people can use. Most first time visitors are not aware of this. Pick up your footsies to avoid serious injuries. I saw several people with deep cuts in their feet after running to the water and jumping in, not knowing what lurks below the water. It is beyond my understanding why nobody bothers to put a simple sign up :>> CAREFUL SHARP ROCKS, LIFE GUARD PROVIDES AQUA SHOES<< The St Regis Gym is state-of-the-art, amazing, Hyatt Gym: standard... nothing special. We looked at both properties to negotiate a long term contract (one year), while on wait list for St Regis Apartments) so we tried it out to see what the fuss with St Regis is all about and if it is a long-term solution. Long story short... we were promised one thing PRIOR booking, those promises were not fulfilled not even marginally, particularly when we were informed - AFTER - we had booked our weekend and AFTER we had spent a day evaluating the property with the sales staff, that.... long term rentals are not available year round, because they are fully sold out during Formula 1 (?? < why even set up a meeting << why waste our time?? ) with that said, the sales staff was very nice and professional in their demeanor, YET we felt we had been led on and wasted a weekend , as we had CONCISELY stated budget and demands PRIOR our arrival, .....so we chose a equivalent 5* competitor for a year contract who bent over backwards and even added Club Level incentives and more to get our business. I guess, St Regis does not need a generous full year accommodation check paid in advance for one of their suites. Occupancy must be at 100 %. Despite our frustration, we would recommend this property for a luxurious weekend getaway on Saadiyat Island. By far some of the nicest rooms I've seen. Almost Ritz Carlton quality.

Room Tip: upper level and upgrade to suite, worth it

Certainly the best beach resort in AD.

We opted for a Superior Sea View room with a balcony which was impressive - particularly the vast bathroom with walk-in shower. All residents have the signature St Regis butler service which adds to the luxury ambiance. Excellent restaurants - from award winning Thai cuisine to fine dining in 55 & 5th. The beach restaurant (Turquoise) is also very good for casual lunch/dinner.

Our highlights were: the Spa – probably the best treatments/facilities we have ever used; the beach/sea – picturesque, very private and extremely warm/clean sea; the private adult pool/private cabanas - perfect for relaxing in privacy; our Bentley airport transfer (an option should you want to treat yourself or someone else..).

An all-round excellent stay and an ideal place to relax and embrace the guaranteed weather. Also an easy taxi journey to AD town center (15mins) and Yas Island.

A final special mention to Mr Clark-Darby (Director of Risk & Security) whose team admirably assisted my friend following a freak accident on the beach, which involved running and a small stone…completely self inflicted but the team were on hand immediately - thankfully!

We will be returning soon!

Room Tip: Opt for Superior Sea View room.

We have just returned for a fantastic stay at this amazing hotel. From the moment we arrived the personnel attention from staff was wonderful. We were greeted by the valet Parker then doorman then escorted to the personalized check in desk where we were assisted by Nadia who made us feel at home immediately.
We stayed in an Ocean suite with amazing views of the beach and sea and superb finishes to the room with a large balcony a great place to sit and unwind.
The pools are lovely and service very attentive.
We had dinner at the thai restaurant and again the service and food was brilliant.
The spa experience was to die for the perfect place to revitalize and take those aches and pains away.
We can't wait to return and will definitely make it long next time.

AMAZING!!!!!!

The weekends are so precious to all of us and we are always trying to find the perfect getaway!
Well this time me and my husband we discover our perfect getaway! Location, beach, service, outlets...excellence!

The check in went very smoothly and the staff was so natural and friendly that we felt like home since the moment we step into the hotel, warm and welcomed! We took off to our room...OMG it was perfect! There's no words to describe the view! It was breathtaking! We felt so calm and secure that we didn't even wanted to go out :)))) The butler service rocks! Well done all of you guys :)

We didn't use the all dining outlets but it was a must for us to experience 55&5th. We had such an amazing culinary experience that we enjoyed from the very first until the last minute! The staff was attentive at all time, very professional and knowledgeable of the menu. Thumbs up for the chefs! Our lunch at Olea was amazing! The rib eye was super delicious :) and the staff they really took care of us!

Check out time! Front desk staff we love you :) We share our experience with them, we had some laughter and then we didn't even realized that we already checked out (believe me I have had the worst check outs in my life) but for this my hat off guys!

I wanted to share this experience so I will help for the future stayers and trust me you will find nothing else except pleasure in this hotel!

Room Tip: Choose Superior Sea View. Amazing view!

Just back from a weekend break to celebrate my wife's birthday with some friends . Our first time to post a review on trip advisor and felt compelled to do so because of the service we received and the fantastic evening we had at the signature restaurant 55th and 5th. First of all thank you to Maureen in Sontaya who went out of her way to help organise a private dinning room for our party and then to Kirsten the restaurant manager and Lee , the chef de cuisine at 55th &5th for helping make the evening so memorable. The room was fantastic, the staff were amazing and the food was out of this world.

In fact everything about this hotel was a excellent, the staff all over the resort can't do enough for you. The rooms were superb with amazing attention to detail. We have stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels and resorts around the Middle East but this was comfortably our best experience to date. We will definitely be back.
