“A little bit of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of October and were blown away by the wonderful service culture at the resort. Colleagues cannot do enough for you! Facilities are all top notch and the beach is idyllic.

The staff is incredibly friendly and the service is excellent. The buffet breakfast has a huge selection of items and is worth the price.
The staff speaks excellent English although most visitors are from Europe/Russia.
However I wouldn't go in the summer, way too hot. But from November on it's a great temperature. It's also close enough to Yas Island for the F1 race, but not too close.

Nothing was too much for the staff. The hotel is run with high efficiency yet retains a very personal touch. It was a wonderful experience with fantastic facilities, great food quality and a superb ambiance. The rooms were of a very high specification with all needs catered for. Location is very good so that you can focus on business without any added distractions with plenty of comfortable spaces to have private meetings. Well done to the management and especially to the staff.

In my opinion St Regis is one of the best hotels. It's grand and luxurious, the rooms are superb, service impeccable, you have your own butler. The food it's nice, huge breakfast buffet. The beach it's quite big and the sand it's very fine. I hope I will get the chance the come back here again.

I attended a conference at the St. Regis in Abu Dhabi in the first week of November and stayed at the same hotel too. It was truly a wonderful experience and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the resort.
The facilities are really great, decor, ambience is fantastic. The room I stayed in was extremely comfortable and all the little things that you would require as a traveller were taken care of, some of them even beyond expectations such as providing a toothbrush and toothpaste. I havent experienced this even in some top hotels in Europe and elsewhere.

What stuck me most was the warm and friendly staff who seemed to be around every time you looked around. They truly made me feel welcome and special.

My only regret is that I did not take my family this time but I certainly look forward to going back with my family and let the kids enjoy the special facilities they have for young ones.

Thanks St. Regis Abu Dhabi team :)

Room Tip: Sea side facing will give you a fantastic view.

Excellent food quality, lots of good service and the pools are fantastic. Nice kids pool included.
Slept like a rock and we had connecting rooms so we were lucky. Location is good to be away from it all, maybe not if you want to sight see. Going out for dinner means being in the hotel, unless you want another 30 minutes in a cab back and forth.

I liked that they provide shoes to go into the sea with, as it has a nasty layer of rocks to walk over in the shallow areas. The beach is the selling point though, it's amazing.
