“The new address in Abu Dhabi...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

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…

Room Tip: Book a grand deluxe suite with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of the Corniche and...

back to the St. regis and another great experience! This time we were lucky enough to experience the soft opening of the beach club which was really a great treat!
We stayed a few months back and also this time we really had a pleasent experience with the family and another couple with kids. Now with the beach club open, you really get the best from being in the heart of AD and the corniche with all the beach and rresort facilities!
thanks to the staff for making also this time our stay so special.

I had an amazing stay !
The view in the room was spectacular. We had the chance to be part of the famous sunday brunch which was incredible.
All the staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming you just feel like speeding hours in the Hotel.
Really looking forward to stay again and discover the beach club.

Huge 5 stars Hôtel that is clearly new in town. Most of the taxis do not know it. Overall good experience but here some needed improvements.
1-30 mn for checking in, as there are only 3 desks.
2- 30 mn to have a taxi and the hotel private taxis are taking 3 time the price of the course. The bell boy advised us to take the private taxis as they know better the town...we ended up lost and paying 30 dh fpr a normal coirse of 7 dhs.
3- Food is good in the restaurants but the welcoming is not professional. The waiters are bit lost as they ask the same questions several time.
4- Some minor engineering issues like no lamp in the room entrance for 2 days unchanged.

Will certainly improve with time.

Dear ChakibC,

Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Abu Dhabi and it’s nice to know that the over-all experience was good. I would however like to apologize for the teething problems you encountered, I appreciate your honest feedback regarding the staff and please be assured that constant training is one of our main priorities in our effort to deliver exceptional service for our guests. We are also working on the signage for both the road and the building exterior and hopefully this will be completed soon in order to make it easier to find us on the Corniche.

Once again thank you for sharing your comments with us and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

Sincerely,

Oliver Key
General Manager

Where should I start?! This place was simply magnificent. The friendly staff, the unparalleled views from the 39th floor, the luxury of our (upgraded) room, the location. I can keep on going.

We checked in late evening and were offered complimentary drinks at the check-in desk. The gentleman who checked us in informed us that due to the fact that we booked with AMEX Plat and were also SPG Gold member, we had been upgraded. I was already aware that we'd get the complimentary upgrade, but I didn't know they'd bump us up 4 times to the Grand Luxury Suite! Talk about a surprise :)

We were walked to the elevator and informed that our butler would be waiting for us upstairs. Sure enough, Nidal was at the door waiting for us and showed us all the features the beautiful room had to offer, although, honestly, we couldn't get past the 270 degree sweeping views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. WOW!

So apparently, the St. Regis offers a 24-hr complimentary hot beverage service, and an unpacking and packing service, too. We made full use of the beverage service, but didn't feel like we wanted to get too, too pampered and opted not to try the latter :)

It was my wife's birthday and so I had requested for some flowers and cake, and when we entered I thought, ah maybe they forgot, no biggie. Then the bell rang and in came Nidal and Fatima with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a delicious red velvet cake and a platter of chocolate dipped strawberries. Again, it was wonderful. We almost felt overwhelmed.

The room, on the 39th floor, was comfortable to say the very least, very well appointed and had everything we needed. The only minor gripe I might have is that there really wasn't a spot to put a large suitcase, it was just at the entrance. But honestly, if this is my biggest gripe - I'm a happy man :) The views, again, were spectacular. We sat late in the night after the kids had gone to sleep, quietly basking in the glow of the lit city below. Oh yeah, then we pressed a button and the curtains closed automatically :)

The bathroom was excellent, with another minor issue that the shower leaked out into the main floor, but maybe I just took a really long shower. The little embedded TV in the mirror was really sweet ... the kids thought it was awesome they could watch their cartoons while getting ready in the morning.

The breakfast was very good for what was on offer, although I had slightly higher expectations after experiencing the room. The selection was great, but I would have expected something on a grander scale. Again, nothing that detracts from our experience, it really doesn't. We enjoyed breakfast on our trip, the staff was exceptional and we loved the ambiance of the dining area.

I can really keep on going about how wonderful this property is, but I'll cut to the point: if you're still thinking where to stay, and this place is in your budget, it's an absolute no-brainer. You will not be disappointed.

Luxury hotel for just good reasonable price - about $230 USD. You probably wont find such price anywhere else, definitely not in North America. Hotel is so technologically advanced, it has an TV embedded in the mirror in the bathroom. Fine breakfast, good restaurant.
The beach is still getting ready for the tourists to come and now it's not the beach season yet.
Very nice view from the room.

Room Tip: Ask for the city view room.
