This 27 square kilometer natural island sits confidently at the heart of Abu Dhabi's tourism, residential and business strategy and are seven minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport via the new Saadiyat Link highway connecting the island to the mainland.
Saadiyat Beach is located on the island's northwestern coast. The district will feature 9 five-star hotels and international resorts, which make the most of their surrounding natural beauty while being sensitive to the ecosystem. The full range of hotels will be available shortly; however the prestigious St Regis Hotel will be amongst them.
