The island will also soon play host to a number of brand new tourist attractions including the Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi - both due to open in 2015 - and the Zayed National Museum, which is set for opening in 2016. The renowned Gary Player-designed Saadiyat Beach Golf Course is also near by.

With seven categories to choose from, ranging from Superior Rooms right up the palatial Royal Suite - the largest hotel suite in the United Arab Emirates - the resort caters to a wide range of budgets and requirements. No matter which room or suite you stay in however, you can be assured of spacious and luxuriously appointed accommodation as well as the use of the signature St Regis Butler service, which is available to all guests.
Dining at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort is certainly a highlight, with six remarkable restaurants to choose from, as well as an in-resort patisserie, serving an enticing array of handmade chocolates, pastries and cakes.
