“Excellent weekend at St. Regis resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

My wife and I currently live in Dubai and decided to spend a long weekend in the St. Regis Resort. I have to say that this was one of the best weekend stays we have ever had!!
The hotel itself is a beautiful property located on the shoreline of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. Our room was upgraded and we were checked in two hours early having requested an early check in. Out view out over the Arabian Gulf was amazing!
The hotel itself is beautiful. Our room was perfect and the service was impeccable. One of the things we really liked as a couple was the fact that there was an audiotape pool area where we could relax without any loud kids (the main pool was huge and there was even a special kids area).
The Restaurants were excellent - we ate in the Asian Restaurant on the first night which was perfect. We dined in the fish restaurant, Turquoise, on the second night which was good but some of the items on the menu were not available.
Overall a great hotel and what you would expect of a St. Regis. We will be back in the near future!!

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

My partner and I stayed here for one night and loved it. We were tempted to stay a second night. The hotel is beautiful with high quality rooms and fab pool areas. The beach was lovely. The only negative was the buffet dinner and breakfast. For a 5 star it did not meet my expectations. Have had better in lower grade hotels elsewhere. We found the staff in the hotel helpful and very pleasant. We were given a late check out due to a 10 minute delay on check in. That meant we could enjoy the facilities for longer than we expected which was definitely a bonus. Would love to go back

I'm still at the hotel and felt I had to write a review due to the amazing customer service I have just received from the Customer Experience Manager Joori and front desk assistant Oliver.

I had a problem with my room due to noise and was very angry because of it and made sure the staff new that. However they treated me with the upmost respect and patience and changed my room, complimentary fruits and late check out.

They have also sent butlers to take all our luggage from our room to deliver it to the new room.

As for the hotel, it's amazing and worth the extra dollar.

Just got back from a 3 night stay at this resort, on arrival I was amazing by the resort, it is absolutely gorgeous! Our room was lovely, all of the restaurants are beautiful, especially the Asian one, the food is the best! The Adult Pool is very relaxing and quiet. The beach is so nice, the water temperature is like getting into a warm bath, the sun lounges by the beach are great! The staff are very friendly and helpful. This is the best resort I have ever stayed at, I will be going back for a week next time.

I always like to spend quality time with my family in this lovely resort ... Every thing is perfect ... Room, food , pool ... Just name it .
The kids like the kids club ...
The balconies are a great escape if the weather is fine.
Recently they have opened few outlets close to it ... This makes things better ... You don't have to drive to the city to get basic items ...
The only thing we miss as SPG members is the lounge ...
I always like to come back to this place ...
