The iconic St. Regis brand is extending its legacy to Abu Dhabi with the opening of the first St. Regis hotel in the Middle East: the St. Regis Saadiyat Resort and Residences on November 2011. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort will be a landmark hotel in Abu Dhabi, but also much more. It includes a 380-room hotel on the pristine white natural beach of Saadiyat, framed by the Gary Player designed Saadiyat Beach 18 hole Golf Course, 33 luxury villas with a private garden and pool, 259 elegant apartments of various dimensions, an entertainment complex of shops and restaurants, a function area capable of seating 1,500 guests, a Spa as well as a St. Regis Athletic Club and 2 tennis courts, 2 squash courts, 5 swimming pools. The air of mystique is created by thoughtful Mediterranean architecture and a contemporary interior design further enhanced by an intelligent use of natural products and elements. The interiors of a neutral palette of cool browns and creams are punctuated by the occasional burst of vivid coral turquoise, adding a distinctive twist to the décor. Combining classic sophistication and modern luxury, the St. Regis brand remains faithful to its commitment to excellence.
