Staycation review: Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas
What you need to know
Set on a spectacular 9km stretch of pristine white beach on Abu Dhabi’s breath-taking Saadiyat Island, featuring idyllic beaches that are home to indigenous Hawksbill turtles, Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the upcoming Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum, Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas is fast becoming our favourite hotel in all of Abu Dhabi. And who can blame us? It’s a one-of-a-kind five-star property with a regal presence, with striking modern Arabic architecture and uninterrupted Arabian Gulf views.
The uniquely-designed 327 rooms and suites and 13 beach villas are modern and spacious, and reflect the resort’s premier beach-side setting.
For the ultimate relaxation, you will find solace at Zen the spa at Rotana offering Turkish and Moroccan Hammam and 10 treatment rooms; or make the most the outdoor pool, two tennis courts, one multi-sports court, mini golf course and beach club.
Why do we love it?
The picturesque beach with its azure waters and white sand is one of the best in all of the UAE, and can easily be mistaken for the Maldives.
Couples, families, friends, or simply anyone who wants to feel like they’ve woken up on a tropical island.
