Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort will open its doors on 11 November 2018, bringing a breath of fresh air and understated luxury to the shores of Abu Dhabi.
Surrounded by natural beauty, this contemporary beachfront resort occupies a stunning location on Saadiyat Island, overlooking 400 metres of protected sand dunes lapped by turquoise waters. Just 10 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport, Saadiyat Island is undergoing a remarkable transformation into a world-class leisure, cultural and residential destination, eventually housing the world’s largest single concentration of premier cultural assets. These will include Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the Zayed National Museum and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, which opened last year to international acclaim.
Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort’s prime location on the island results in an experience where world class art and culture seamlessly cohabit with mangroves, dolphins and turtles - the original ‘guests’ of Saadiyat Island. In keeping with its location, the 293 room hotel values sustainable tourism and will be free of plastic straws and single-use plastics bottles.
Announcing the opening date, General Manager, Linda Griffin, Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort said: “This resort is a place like no other, located footsteps from one of the most beautiful protected beaches in the Arabian Gulf. Every aspect of the resort’s design and intended guest experience has been influenced by the beauty of this location. Guests can embrace sunrise yoga, find a secluded spot to watch the sunset, or relax in one of three infinity swimming pools that merge into the sand dunes and, during the turtle nesting season, there will be a special opportunity to see the Hawksbill turtles on the 9km sweeping beachfront. This will be island life at its best.”
