Arriving at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort
The Island Resort is easy to get to. You can reach it after about 20 minutes, as we did with our rental car, which we already booked in Germany. (Recommendation not to book a navigation system, but to use a data volume package on site via the smartphone and then use it as a navigation system)
Arrived at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island, a perfect parking service awaits the guest. Coffee and dates were traditionally served. The check-in at the reception is precise with a natural friendliness. During the check-in we were already refreshed with a cool, homemade lemonade (lime and mint).
Rooms – Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island
Ocean Suite with King Size-bed
The room is classy and modern, exquisite and cozy. There is a comfortable seating area on the balcony and can let your mind wander with a breathtaking sea view.
In the spacious bathroom with walk-in shower, separate bathtub and luxurious care products make you feel immediately at ease.
The king size bed is very comfortable and cozy and you can feel a sea breeze when the door is open.
Beach and Pool at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island
Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort not only has the most beautiful beach on the island, it is also the birth beach for sea turtles. 70 turtles found their way into the open sea this year. Out of respect for the sea turtles, there is no motorized water sport there either.
After a short walk across a footbridge that goes through the dunes, perfect service awaits the guest. The desired bed and the umbrella are prepared with towels and an employee comes by at the push of a button to take an order. Chilled and fragrant towels, refreshing shoots such as cranberry or pineapple and frozen fruit ice cream are served during the day.
The pool area is also tastefully designed, but we always preferred the sea.
The resort is committed to restricting the use of plastic bottles to protect the island’s habitat. For this purpose, the hotel provides free, reusable bottles for each guest, which can be refilled at water stations. Throughout the resort, filtered water is served in glass bottles on site and plastic straws have been abolished.
We find this a nice one and contemporary approach is to save plastic.
The hotel won the Trade Arabia Prize and was the first in UAE to win the Oceanic Global Award ( https://oceanic.global/oceanic-standard/ ) excellent.
Every morning at the juice bar, we were pleased with the daily various juice creations, which were freshly squeezed.
In addition to the live cooking stations with international dishes, we were fascinated by the different sorbet ice cream varieties. A wonderfully refreshing end to the breakfast.
Restaurants of Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island
Here is our choice of restaurant for stays of three days. In all restaurants or bars, guests can choose from exquisite wines, various beers or spirits.
But if you want to avoid alcohol, you should devote yourself to the mocktails. We experienced a truly unique mocktail challenge. The house created the right mocktail for all dishes. We were allowed to enjoy countless variations and did not miss the glass of wine for dinner.
Just a few steps from the sea we enjoyed the true Levantine gourmet culture with all the flavors of the region.
The tea team prides itself on processing only the best ingredients available, bringing traditional Arabic cuisine to a higher level.
We were treated to authentic dishes that tastefully arranged were spoiled.

- Cuisine: Levantine – Arabic
- Dress code: sporty and elegant

The Mare Mare restaurant was named after the Italian word for “sea” and this is reflected in its location with a wonderful view of the pool and the sea.
Classic dishes, homemade pasta, meat and fish dishes tasted great in the sea air.
We chose the starters from the menu. We left the main course and the dessert to the chef’s recommendation.
- Location: At the pool with a view of the sea
- Cuisine: traditional Italian
- Dresscode: casual
- When: 12:00 Uhr bis 23:00 o’clock

The Offside Sports Lounge is a cozy, typical sports lounge where there is not only a large number of TVs but also a huge screen. The menu carries everything you could expect in this location.

The new and very modern hotel is also recommended for all polo fans due to its proximity to the Ghantoot Racing Polo Club. The new and very modern hotel is also recommended for all polo fans due to its proximity to the Ghantoot Racing Polo Club.
The resort’s elegant interior is reminiscent of an Arab summer house. Bright and warm colors create a pleasant atmosphere and are always reminiscent of the colors of the beach and the sea.
The lobby impresses with its spaciousness and how it catches the light.
Of the seven exciting and epicurean restaurants we were able to choose during our stay of three days just try three.
