The award-winning Turkish-grown hospitality brand Rixos Hotels opened the first all-inclusive, all exclusive resort in Abu Dhabi. Opening its stylish doors on 15th October, Rixos Saadiyat Island invites guests to experience pure luxury in an opulent setting inspired by the palace of the Ottoman Empire. Situated on the pristine white sands of Saadiyat Island, what really sets it apart is its unique positioning as the most successful fully integrated resort in the Emirates
With panoramic views overlooking a sprawling private beach and out into the endless blue of the Arabian Gulf, the 378-key resort comprises 366 faultlessly designed rooms and suites, plus 12 three and four-bedroom villas with private pools and direct access to the beach. Conveniently located less than 30 minutes away from all of Abu Dhabi’s most thrilling attractions, guests can indulge in the feeling of hiding away in an exclusive island enclave while having close proximity to city highlights including the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Ensuring that guests are taken on a true culinary journey, Rixos Saadiyat Island has a total of ten restaurants and bars delivering flavours from across the globe. Highlight culinary offerings include authentic Turkish cuisine at Turquoise, the hotel’s signature all-day dining restaurant, haute seafood dining and exquisite coastal views at Mermaid and comforting Italian classics at L’Olivo. Guests can also head to the far east for Teppanyaki and sushi at Japanese restaurant Aja, step back in time to true Rixos heritage with the tastes of Oriental Turkish cuisine at Orient or eat-on-the-go from one of many Food Carts dotted around the resort. A series of beach bars, tea and shisha lounges and the Club House – an exclusive restaurant reserved for villa guests – complete the offering.
Giving guests another reason to stay on the island, the resort also boasts a water park complete with wave pool for all ages and children’s aqua park. Nestled away within the resort’s verdant gardens, Rixos Saadiyat’s Spa is inspired by the age-old wellness customs of Turkey, with the dramatic Ottoman architecture. A series of signature arches leading to spectacular tiled treatment rooms and a traditional Turkish Hammam create a true sanctuary, with expert therapists on hand to restore balance for mind, body and soul. A state-of-the-art gym and Rixy Kids Club, plus a wide range of in-resort activities – from sunset paddle boarding to yoga on the sand – will keep every guest happy, from adrenaline junkies to budding sports fans.
Boasting a heavenly island venue ideal for picture-perfect celebrations, Rixos Saadiyat Island makes an ideal spot for weddings and events. Masterminded by a dedicated events team and tailored to any occasion, the resort can host up to a staggering 1,000 guests – with a stunning ballroom and expansive beach draped with lush palm trees and flanked by azure water. “We are thrilled to be expanding Rixos Hotels into Abu Dhabi, showcasing our first all-inclusive, all-exclusive resort in the capital. This concept means that having paid once for the staying, guests receive unlimited excess to all hotel services including food & beverages available 24 hours a day. Thus, our guests can fully focus on relaxation and rest in the atmosphere of ultra-luxury, without putting any limitations on themselves. We are extremely proud of our new resort and of the team, and are happy to welcome the firsts guests to Rixos Saadiyat Island,” comments Fettah Tamince, Founder and Chairman of Rixos Hotels.
