The Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort is situated on Saadiyat Island, overlooking 400 metres of protected sand dunes lapped by turquoise waters. The contemporary resort is bright and sleek with warm hospitality welcoming the guests who enter.
In keeping with its location, the 293 room hotel values sustainable tourism and is free of plastic straws and single-use plastics bottles, protecting the original ‘guests’ of the island, the Hawksbill turtles. Guests can take a dip in the sea where dolphins and turtles are often sighted, before dining at Mare Mare, a traditional Italian restaurant with an open-air terrace overlooking the pool and beach.
On the weekend, Umm Al Emarat Park in the heart of Downtown Abu Dhabi is a popular hangout spot for locals and expats, with manicured gardens, an outdoor cinema and an animal barn - perfect for a relaxing walk in the heart of the city. If the visit coincides with lunch, travellers can grab a tasty burger from SALT - a popular food truck - which is located at the park entrance.
