“Nice but no feeling”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is a new hotel nice decor and good service. As mentioned in other reviews lacks any soul and feeling, just another nice hotel.
The hotel is well appointed and the room decor again nice but nothing memorable.
There is a very nice natural beach which is unusual for Abu Dhabi.
The hotel is far away from the centre of town and not recommended if you have to go in and out for business downtown. It is better situated as a resort and closer to the Yas Island attractions.
The hotel restaurants are great.

The hotel is a typical resort style beach hotel, but of a high standard. Rooms are very nice and service is excellent. But overall the hotel, as well as the whole area, is lacking charisma - which all the luxury can't really compensate. I stayed for business, so I had to commute about 30 min to the conference center and downtown.

Very good and quite hotel in a beautiful surrounding, directly on the beach, there is no street in front and you can relax greatly. The staff is extraordinary friendly and very helpful and the clean the room twice a day and refill all you might need and really are very very caring and friendly. This service is hard to beat!
I suggest you check it out for yourself!
Highly recommended!
Enjoy!

Room Tip: Upstairs in the Main Building to have the wonderful view over the area down to the beach

A great stay on Saadiyat Island. The staff was excellent, property was very luxurious and resort-y, and the food and bev was great. Breakfast was very good. Saadiyat Island is a nice destination, and it looks like a few more hotels are being built on the same strip. It's next to a public beach, but it seemed to be only Hyatt guests at the beach in front of the hotel.

The only negative would be the flying insects in the pool area. I realize it's hard to have food and drinks without insects, but we shouldn't have to put on bug spray to lay out at the pool.

We were given this stay as a gift from dear friends. Right from arrival as soon as we said our name, the staff knew exactly what was required! The bellhop showed us how to work everything in the room, showed us where the restaurants were and ensured we had everything we needed to begin our mini relaxing break.
Wifi connection was a breeze!! So easy and quick! A beautiful balcony with a full sized lounge bed was delightful to lay on and look up at the stars.
The bathroom had a stand lone deep tub which I relished, it was lovely with a standing shower next to it. Twin sinks made it easy to get ready for dinner and the soaps etc were bergamot, fresh and lovely to use, vegetable soaps.
We went to the Grill for dinner and again the service was outstanding! Clean, fresh, NO SMOKING!! Bonus!! The waiter ensured I had gluten free food and double checked everything with the chef prior to serving.
The food was out of this world!! We love Pier Chic but this restaurant really did take the biscuit if you excuse the pun. The seared Tuna, the roast chicken, the beef, the desserts, even the wine was just at the right temperature.
Breakfast the next day was heavenly. Such a large array of foods to suit all tastes AND again, gluten free was no problem.
We walked around the grounds in the evening, it was enchanting. You could hear the lapping of the waves of the Gulf, stars were visible and the gardens just beautiful.
We sat outside during the day and it was so lovely to rest with the sounds of water in the background.
We will definitely be back, this time for a few more days. It was very relaxing.

Room Tip: Not sure about tip on a room but if you can get one higher than the second floor you will see the Gu...

This is the first Hyatt to open its doors in the fabulous city of 5 star luxury. This was our third visit in two years - it must be great as we are very pickie 5 star luxury addicts. You can expect a high level of service here, but with a more relaxed vibe.

This is a prestigious luxury beachfront hotel is a perfect place for a luxury holiday, just 10 minutes from the city. This contemporary, elegance and sophisticated hotel is situated on the beautiful natural Saddiyaat Beach,it delivers unparalleled high quality of service from all levels of staff which has not changed in 2 years since our first visit.

Foodies can indulge in a variety of dining experiences, the Beach House with its own rooftop bar where you can indulge in sipping great pre-dinner cocktails watching the sun go down over the Arabian Sea, the cuisine here is Mediterrean. The Park Grille is more formal dining and the restaurant has a indoor show kitchen where you can watch the many Chefs at work - great food.. Both restaurants have a great menu prepared by innovative, passionate chefs, a fabulous selection of wine (always cold-which we like).

The suites are spacious and luxurious everything a discerning traveller needs, huge lounge and separate bedroom, fabulous bathroom with free standing bathtub, and rainwater shower, the ultimate little gem is a walk in wardrobe which I loved. This is topped by a great balcony with amazing views of the hotels grounds and the beach.

This hotel is the ultimate luxury holiday location, and includes impeccable service and exquisite cuisine - what more can you need.

Room Tip: For the best views, book a sea view room or splash out and reserve a suite

Spent 3 days here relaxing between Christmas and New Year. It is modern hotel with well designed rooms with sea views. The staff are very professional. The 3 restaurants (Beach Club for outside lunch, The Grill for big dinners, and the breakfast cafe) are all great. Didn't use the Spa but used the tennis court. It is on the best stretch of beach in Abu Dhabi and great spot to relax on the beach.

Dear Rupert Baker

Thank you for your wonderful comments. I am delighted you enjoyed the Festive period with us. I agree the Beach is one of the best in the region. There is kilometers of endless sand and turquoise sea.
No wonder the dolphins like to visit most days.
