"The best Head Sommelier"
This is the second time we have done a champagne tasting at the St Regis with the incredibly knowledgeable Sommelier Steve Fernandez and his team. Nothing was too much trouble, we learnt a great deal and I achieved a wish I have had for a long time which is how to sabre a bottle of champagne - apparently a first at the St Regis. We will be returning.
"My experience "
I stayed at the St Regis for two nights and I don't regret my choice at all. The employee's really make you feel a diffrence between this hotel and other 4* hotels i stayed at - they were always super helpful and friendly, helping with the organisation of things to do in Abu Dhabi outside the hotel. In room dining was what you would expect it to be for a five star hotel, the adult pool is a great place to relax and have a drink. The restaurants of the hotel offer a good choice of food, be prepared to spend at least 70$ for dinner though. Breakfast was great especially the wide choice of fresh juices. The only thing which could be improved is the beach - there are quite a lot of stones on the ground for the first few meters so you have to watch out a bit while entering the sea. I know that's not the fault of the hotel - it's nature of course. But if possible I think it would be real added value to the beach! All in all a great experience at a decent price tag, I'll be back soon hopefully!
"Mr. St Regis attended a wedding and was not available"
Second stay here and I was really really disappointed... First stay, I was really impressed (Marriot and SPG merger was not effective yet so I had no special tier in SPG), they were attentive and went way beyond my expectations. Second stay, my expectations were even higher (I was now a platinum member it should be great), decided to go with my wife to celebrate the wedding anniversary... big, big mistake 1) there was a big wedding in the hotel 2) staff was focused on the wedding and it always sounded you were disturbing them from their main task 3) status was not recognized at any step of the stay, I was just another guy disturbing their main focus 4) too many iterations for simple things like booking a restaurant, switch off the AC, get coffee capsules... 5) special occasion was recognized after following up after arrival, and still done in a sloppy way, they wrote happy birthday to my wife it was just not up to standards... These may sound not big issues, but these are the reasons why St Regis or Ritz Carlton are regarded as hotels that offer a better service and that is why they charge a premium over it. The pool was there, the beach was there but St Regis was attending a wedding and not available.
Had a fabulous week at the resort. Because it was Eid there were lots of families but the staff worked very hard to ensure that those travelling without children were offered quieter areas for breakfast, brunch, and in the adult pool area. The staff are very professional but also friendly - special mentions must go to our exceptional butler Gary (we loved him!), Vasna in the Olea, and the guys working at the adult pool.
"Beautiful hotel and amazing beach"
This is the best hotel in Abu Dhabi!! I was not expecting this to be such an amazing hotel, everything about it is just beautiful. The rooms, the service, the restaurants but the best of all is the beach. The kids club is great and my son was kept entertained for hours, allowing us time to go and enjoy the spa!
