Jumeirah at Saadiyaat Island Resort
This luxury Abu Dhabi resort flaunts understated, contemporary architecture, overlooking 400-metres of protected sand dunes and boasting views out towards the shimmering waters of the Arabian Gulf.
With a focus on sustainability and conservation, the resort has partnered up with the incredible Trust Your Water scheme in order to eliminate single-use plastics. Local, filtered water is offered in glass bottles throughout the property, complimentary reusable bottles can be filled when you leave the hotel, and plastic straws have now been completely withdrawn. In addition, the building itself was designed to minimise the impact it has on Saadiyaat’s precious dune ecosystem and native flora and fauna – particularly the charming Hawksbill turtle that nests here, officially an endangered breed.
With its wonderful and important commitment to sustainability, the resort certainly does not compromise on its unmistakable Jumeirah luxury and fabulous facilities. Unwind in one of three infinity pools, seamlessly blending into the golden sand dunes, or soak up the sunshine on the resort beach. Then, get ready for a culinary adventure in a number of distinct eateries, offering local and international delights. Meanwhile, fantastic kids’ and teen’s clubs are sure to keep younger guests entertained on their own Abu Dhabi adventure.
Centred around an impressive Moroccan hammam, the resort’s stunning spa features an impressive 14 ornate treatment rooms, a couple’s spa suite with a private entrance, a salt room, hydrotherapy pools and a traditional Arabic Rasul room, designed to host an ancient medicinal mud cleansing ritual. An extensive menu of innovative therapies and classic treatments is yours to choose from.
Saadiyat Island is an up-and-coming world-class destination for leisure and culture, home to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, while the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum are set to open soon. What’s more, the hustle and bustle of downtown Abu Dhabi is a mere ten minutes away.
