Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas is situated on a stunning stretch of pristine white sands on Saadiyat Island. Boasting idyllic beaches where you can often spot Hawksbill turtles, and easy access to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum, this five star resort is a prime spot in Abu Dhabi and well worth a visit.
While we would highly recommend staying at this luxury hotel, with its striking modern Arabic architecture and uninterrupted Arabian Gulf views if you can, if it’s not possible, you can still take advantage of its fantastic modern dining options. All seven restaurants here focus on using fresh ingredients to create authentic flavours and new culinary experiences, including its buffet restaurant, Sim Sim.
Be prepared for a culinary journey at this elegant restaurant where the extensive international buffet is bursting with global flavours. The breakfast spread is spectacular to behold, with everything one could want – and more – on offer. Large bowls of dried fruit, platters of fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals and breads are just for starters, with hot dishes cooked to order by the hotel’s talented chefs at live cooking stations the main event. There’s also freshly-squeezed juice and hot drinks to kick-start your morning.
Dinner sees everything from Middle Eastern specialties that provide a culinary insight into regional tastes, to European favourites and Asian dishes cooked to perfection. Watch as the chefs showcase their skills at live cooking stations, creating fresh themed or seasonal plates before your very eyes. They can also prepare dishes just to your taste from the restaurant’s à la carte menu, if you so desire. Desserts are a whole other affair, taking the form of platters of sweet, sticky baklava as well as cakes,tarts, mousses and a tempting chocolate fountain.
