We chose the St. Regis for a one week beach vacation in October 2013. The main purpose was to escape from the cold European temperatures and to heat up a bit before the tough winter time. Abu Dhabi is a perfect spot for that. Just two hours time difference during that season and just a bit more than a six hours flight. The St. Regis was recommended by friend. We enjoyed the week very much. The staff was super friendly, our Ocean view suite was spacious and equipped with all the amenities you would expect from such a hotel. We booked about six months in advance and got a decent package that also included breakfast. The hotel is definitely not cheap, but we got quite some value for what we paid. The pool was very nice, staff brought some refreshments every time we came to the pool. The beach is beautiful, however, for swimming not really perfect. But you can make long walks along the beach. The breakfast buffet was probably one of the best we have ever seen. I would give a 9 out of 10. We also like the dinner buffet even though we are usually not into buffet style. But the food quality was just perfect. We also visited some other restaurants on the premises, an Asian and a seafood restaurant on the beach. All of them very good, we even got some discounts for being Starwood members. All in all, a perfect week for us. We went on to spend some days in Dubai. Next time I would probably just stay in Abu Dhabi as we are not that much into the busy city life of Dubai. But if you want to do some shopping next to a relaxing beach vacation, this combo makes a lot of sense.
