Spending time in Abu Dhabi? The United Arab Emirates capital is a cosmopolitan place to spend a few days soaking up the sun and fascinating culture.
In a destination as glam as Abu Dhabi, you’ll want to stay in a hotel that matches the vibe, so we’ve teamed up with Rotana Hotels and Resorts to show you the very best of the UAE.
Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas is a 5-star resort on the breathtaking Saadiyat Island,
Here’s 7 legitimate reasons to stay here…
1. You’ll wake up to a beautiful view of the resort from your balcony
Deluxe and Premium Seaview rooms have sweeping views of the resort below and the inviting Arabian Gulf. What a sight to see first thing in the morning, right?
2. The cocktails at Nasma Beachfront bar are to-die-for
As well as the rooftop bar at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas’s Turtle Bay Bar & Grill, you can also sip on expertly mixed cocktails right by the beach at Nasma Beachfront bar.
Think refreshing (and boozy!) coconuts and zesty daiquiris.
3. The entire hotel is incredibly aesthetic – meaning heaps of photos for the ‘gram
Lit up at night time, Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas looks like a Middle-Eastern fairytale castle. The interior of the hotel is luxurious marble, with a cool Seven Sands display in the lobby: sand from each of the Seven Emirates displayed under glass panels in the floor.
4. The spa treatments will have you feeling even more relaxed
Zen the Spa at Rotana is the place to be for a spot of pampering. As well as classic treatments (top tip: the Aroma Radiance Facial is fantastic), you can also enjoy unique Turkish and Moroccan Hammam and Himalayan treatments.
5. Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas is a top spot to explore Abu Dhabi from
Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas is just 15 minutes from many of Abu Dhabi’s top attractions. You’ll be in easy driving distance of the famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the uber-sleek Louvre Museum.
6. You get to try appetising food from many different cuisines
Love eating something different every day of your holidays? At Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas you wouldn’t even need to leave the resort, as there’s eight different dining options. Si Ristorante Italiano & Bar offers authentic Italian dishes, with a woodburning oven for pizza.
Seafood lovers need to try Turtle Bay Bar & Grill, which specialises in grilled seafood feasts in a romantic setting by the water.
7. And you can even spend the day on the resort’s private beach…
Yep, you won’t even have to choose between the pool and the beach when staying here. Hop between the spacious pool and the pristine white sands of Saadiyat Beach.
