Abu Dhabi, UAE

Located on Saadiyat Island, this development includes a mix of a St Regis operated resort hotel, villas, apartments and a retail centre flanked on two sides by a golf course and one side by the sea.

Throughout, a subtle Mediterranean theme with off-white and cream facades; and terracotta tiled roofs can be seen, all overlooking a Gary Player links golf course – the only coastal golf course in the UAE.

The adult pool is informal and intimate, forming private spaces for conversation whereas the family pool is vast and open. Changing levels are utilised to define zones and break up the scale of the site. Visitors can expect the style and ambiance associated with the world-renowned St Regis hospitality brand.
