Abu Dhabi is probably the only city in the world that has two St. Regis Hotels both completely different. Having experienced most of the luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi this was really a refreshing change.
The hotel is beautifully finished from the moment you enter you see the grand staircase and chandeliers. It reminded me of the rich tradition of the original St. Regis in New York.
The suite we stayed in was stunning with uninterrupted views of the corniche and the city of Abu Dhabi. White glove butler service was at our disposal during our stay, free Wi-Fi service was available throughout the hotel with excellent bandwidth. The amenities were personalized and the staff anticipated all our unexpressed needs. Service was really intuitive not intrusive and the staff were clearly very well trained.
We had the opportunity to experience most of the restaurants during our stay. The highlight was the signature ‘At the Table’ Friday brunch by Gary Rhodes at Rhodes 44. We also enjoyed Villa Toscana that serves Italian favorites from Tuscany, wonderful setting and delicious food, we went there for dinner on both nights. We also recommend Azura that offers healthy salads and snacks on the menu.
Part of The St. Regis Abu Dhabi is the newly opened Nation Riviera Beach Club, which is easily accessible from the hotel main building via an air-conditioned private tunnel underneath the Corniche. The club consists of a private stretch of pristine beach, complimented by a temperature controlled swimming pool. We really enjoyed lounging by the beach pool during our stay at the club whilst the kids collected sea shells on the beach.
In summary St. Regis Abu Dhabi has an A+ location where one can enjoy the best of both worlds. It’s conveniently located in the heart of Abu Dhabi corniche with amazing views of the city and Emirates Palace. It’s easily accessible from the Sheikh Khalifa Bridge via Yas Island and Saadiyat Island barely an hours drive from Dubai. Abu Dhabi Marina Mall is a short distance away from the hotel. It is very suitable for business as well as pleasure owing to its private beach club. It has outstanding personalized discrete service. The staff and butlers are proactive, have a great eye for detail and name recognition in the hotel is phenomenal. The food and beverage offering is innovative and inviting with a special touch. Overall the hotel lives up to the St. Regis heritage and legacy of uncompromising luxury and service. We will surely be back soon…
