Take a break from Dubai and head to the amazing Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.
When it comes to planning a weekend staycation in the UAE we have some amazing options. So, although a stayation is always a good idea, we can never decide which hotel to book.
The St Regis on Saadiyat Island is one of our top favourite spots for a short break in the Capital. A truly magical place to stay, no other stretch of beach in Dubai can beat the six-mile long natural, Caribbean-like, pristine waters of Saadiyat Island.
A must-try, if you go during the weekend, is their Friday brunch (from 300 AED). The variety of food is outstanding and there is live entertainment. Saadiyat Island is only a 15-minute drive to Abu Dhabi Downtown so you can pop to the city in the afternoon for a bit of exploration (check Abu Dhabi Confidential for recommendations). If you want to simply relax then enjoy the facilities in the afternoon – they have 5 swimming pools, including a 25 m indoor swimming pool perfect for laps, tennis courts, squash courts and an 18-hole golf course.
The hotel is also child-friendly and has The Sandcastle Club (photo above), with indoor and outdoor activities for the little ones.
While at the resort, you must grab a sunset drink at
, a beach restaurant and lounge with incredible views of the beach and nice laidback vibe –the DJ plays mellow funky beats– it is also a great setting for kids as there is plenty of space for them run around while you lounge indoors or outdoors. The ideal place to chill and admire the sun setting on the Capital.
A truly magical experience, a stay at The St Regis Saadiyat Island will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
