Jumeirah Group has opened its latest property, Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, the group’s first luxury eco-conscious resort.
“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,” said Linda Griffin, general manager, Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort.
Eco-conscious practices at the Resort go beyond preserving the island’s protected sand dunes. Jumeirah has partnered with Dubai-based water treatment company, Trust Your Water, to reduce single-use plastics. Guests are offered locally-sourced, filtered, still and sparkling water in their own personal reusable bottles that can be refilled at the resort’s water stations. The resort has also eliminated the use of plastic straws, favouring straws made from recycled material.
“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,” she added.
The luxury beachfront resort overlooks 400m of white sand on the Arabian Gulf and offers a front-row seat to breathtakingly beautiful scenery and undisturbed wildlife. Depending on the season, guests may catch a glimpse of Indo-pacific humpback and bottle nose dolphins, green or hawksbill turtles and dugongs, who live in the Saadiyat Mangroves.
The resort offers three outdoor infinity pools, a kids’ pool, and Bodyism Wellness Centre, the very first to open in the United Arab Emirates. For a luxurious experience, there’s a choice of private 2, 3 and 4-bedroom duplex villas with private pools.
José Silva, chief executive officer, Jumeirah Group, said: “We are proud to bring Jumeirah to Saadiyat Island and to 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.”
White, the resort’s all day dining restaurant offers local and international dishes alongside live cooking stations, guests looking for a more authentic experience can dine in Majlis Saadiyat which offers Arab hospitality and a premium selection of refreshments, tea, coffee, and delicious pastries.
