Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Opens Eco-Conscious Resort

An "eco-conscious" yet luxurious resort is said to have been launched by Jumeirah Group as they announced the opening of Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort in mid-December. The group's first of a kind resort is on the coasts of Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi.

Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Opens Eco-Conscious Resort

The extravagant beachfront Resort overlooks 400 metres of attractive white sand on the Arabian Gulf and offers astoundingly gorgeous scenery and uninterrupted wildlife. Visitors may catch a sight of Indo-pacific humpback and bottle nose dolphins, green or hawksbill turtles and dugongs, which live in the Saadiyat Mangroves. Inland, gazelles, socotra cormorants, grey herons and greater flamingos are known to visit too.

Linda Griffin, General Manager at Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island said:

"This Resort is a place like no other. Located next to one of the most spectacular beaches in the Arabian Gulf, every aspect of the resort's design has been influenced by the beauty of this location."

The eco-conscious ethos at the Resort go yonder conserving the island's dwindling sand dunes - Jumeirah has partnered with Dubai-based Trust Your Water campaign to reduce single-use plastics. Guests are offered locally-sourced filtered still and sparkling water in their own personal reusable bottles - the resort has also eradicated the use of plastic straws.

"Our commitment to protecting the natural sand dunes and sea around this hotel means that we are also continuously trying to minimise the impact that guests have on this environment by bringing in our own environmentally-friendly solutions and working with partners who are dedicated to employing sustainable, ethical practices in their businesses."

Said Linda Griffin.

The stunningly decorated sunlit rooms overlook the water and the panoramic suites offer floor-to-ceiling windows and each has a balcony. There are three infinity pools, a kids' pool and a Wellness Centre, the first to open in the United Arab Emirates. The 2, 3 and 4-bedroom duplex villas come with their own private pools.

The 2,700 square metre Spa is a haven of calmness and includes a Moroccan Hammam, 15 treatment rooms (male and female facilities), saunas, hydrotherapy pools, steam and salt rooms and a traditional Arabic rasul. Guests staying in the Spa Villas are able to enjoy pampering in the privacy on their own hotel suite.

Jose Silva, Chief Executive Officer, Jumeirah Group, said:

"We are proud to bring Jumeirah to Saadiyat Island and open our second luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi. The opening is a significant landmark in achieving our strategic expansion goals worldwide and is our sixth Jumeirah hotel to open this year. We are confident that Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort will further enhance Abu Dhabi as a distinct and diverse tourist destination, and we look forward to welcoming guests from the local community as well as international travellers. We anticipate it will be a very popular and welcome addition to Saadiyat."

The eco conscious resort offers traditional Arabic cuisine at Levantine-inspired TEAN, prolonged poolside lunches at the bar and Italian al fresco dining at Mare Mare. The all-day dining restaurant White offers native, international dishes and live cooking stations. Majlis Saadiyat offers the warmness of Arab generosity and a finest selection of refreshments and delightful pastries.

Saadiyat Island is currently experiencing a conversion into a world-class destination. The Louvre Abu Dhabi opened in 2017 and will be joined by the Zayed National Museum and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. The resort is 10 minutes’ drive away from Yas Island, home to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Yas Mall, Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World and Warner Bros. World.
