“Why going abroad when Saadiyat Rotana Resort Villas has it all from a UAE long term European resident”
My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary in UAE (COVID-19 limitation) and we were recommended to stay at this hotel. What a great recommendation! We just had an AMAZING 4 days stay; everything was just perfect.
We even found a very tasty anniversary cake in our room with a personal touch (adding a bretzel feature on it) as they noticed at time of check in that my husband is German 😊 very thoughtful.
The beautifully decorated room was stunning and huge with very nice large bathroom and with all amenities you could dream off and even more. Secluded balcony with 2 large sofas & wonderful sea view.
The hotel has a great pool and a stunning beach. Saadiyat beach is 9 km long (white sand, super clean). No motor nuisance as it is a protected beach (9 km long) where tortoises come to hatch and where you can sometimes see dolphins very close to the beach. We actually saw 7 of them yesterday morning, what an experience!
A nice feature at the beach is that they have divided it into 3 areas, one for families, one for couples and one for people looking for quietness.
We booked the Friday Market Brunch and were blown away by the choice of food: from caviar, oysters, lobsters, sushi, ceviche, to delicious meat cuts, cheeses, breads etc., etc. The way the restaurant staff have set-up the many food stations is impressive. Well done to them. The Brunch is definitely a MUST whether you are resident or not.
For those worried about taking a vacation due to COVID, I can confirm that ROTANA takes exemplary measures to protect their customers: employees are regularly tested; rooms are sealed after being cleaned and disinfected ready for the next guest; loungers at the beach and at the pool are disinfected after each use; free masks stands are available throughout the hotel; sanitizers can be found everywhere, hotel is super clean. You really feel safe.
Once again ROTANA and its dedicated employees delivered high-class services/experience.

The hotel delivers beyond my expectation.
Covid prevention - was to its highest from the hotel lobby, with the contactless electronic check-in, the room was tagged sanitized and every glasses and amenities were wrapped sanitized as well.
Temperature check were done in most places in the hotel, in Hamilton's and the when entering the pool.
Personnel- most of the hotel staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating.
our commendation to Ryan in Hamilton who is well versed in wine and for singing happy birthday to me, as well as the Asian ladies that served our food 2 consecutive nights in a row.
also commending Nisanne for exceptionally cleaning our room every day and getting me disposable containers for my cake.
Marko of dinning at Simsim breakfast was really good as well, making sure our breakfast was served even though we are late.
the hotel facilities from the restaurants, pool and the beach was really great.
we had the best birthday celebration ever. can't wait to come back

“Quite and Relaxing”
The hotel is very beautiful. its landscape, lobby, rooms, pool and beach are all well cleaned. Service and food by the pool will blow your mind, they serve you free fruit skewers which were frozen and they just melt in your mouth, they also serve free slush shots in mango and tropical fruit flavors which will take the heat away from you. I would like to shout out few names for their excellent service at pool area Sateesh, Prasanna, Khalid and Keith. We will visit again for sure at your beautiful property.

“Bad service nice hotel”
The team need to learn to smile and serve people in a better way. Hotel location is great, too much restriction on the stay and service can be better on all aspect. The hotel is beautiful but didnt enjoy it much with our families and friends
