Superb Mediterranean-inspired hotel with a beachfront setting on Saadiyat Island.

Contemporary interior design and thoughtful Mediterranean architecture characterise this luxurious hotel that’s filled with natural light. Found on Saadiyat Island, this is the perfect retreat for those that want to laze on pristine white sands while enjoying convenient access tothe city's numerous attractions. Modern touches add to the pristine feel of the hotel and elegant traditional Arabic elements offer a subtle reminder that you’re in Abu Dhabi.

The cuisine available here is spectacular, with a range of flavours from around the world on offer. In keeping with the decor, Oléa presents a Mediterranean menu in a panoramic ocean view setting, while Sontaya is set among a series of floating pavilions, serving indulgent Asian-fusion dishes, and The Drawing Room offers up irresistible sweet treats. Buddha-Bar Beach follows the same concept as the seasonal Buddha Bars found on glamorous Greek islands, Santorini and Mykonos. Dine on delicious Asian dishes in the day and enjoy the unique night brunch concept which starts at 7pm on Fridays. Heading back to your room, you’ll find a comfortable and luxurious retreat where the hotel’s sense of Mediterranean ease continues.
