I was in desperate need for some indulgence and R&R and decided to check out the new St. Regis on Saadiyat Island for a whole weekend. I arrived late on a Thursday evening and the welcome experience was very nice being greeted by friendly faces who took care of my car and my luggage. Check-in was very fast and the staff very helpful and friendly. Went up to the room accompanied by a friendly front office clerk who showed me the room with all its features. It was a superior room but very spacious (55sqm) and came with an amazing bathroom with a huge walk-in rainshower. The bathroom amenities were of very high quality. My luggage was delivered promptly and I decided to order a steak sandwich from room service which took about 25 minutes as quoted over the phone to deliver. It was very delicious.
Butler service was also always prompt replenishing the ice in the room.
Went to the Manhattan Bar and had a few drinks there. Staff was friendly and fast.
Breakfast was sumptuous and delicious with hardly anything not available except for pork products. We ordered some poached eggs which were very fluffy. The next day as the hotel was very busy we were sat in the steakhouse for breakfast and could enjoy some quiet time as the main room was cramped with families and lot of kids. The manager even went out of his way and organized a bottle of HP sauce which was not an easy task to find. That's what sets this hotel apart as a luxury hotel from the usual 5 stars.
Another great feature is the adult only pool which allows couples to spend some romantic hours far away from the loudness of the family pool. The Pina Coladas were amazing served in whole pineapples.
I truly enjoyed this stay and was able to recharge my batteries. I will soon be back for more.
