Leading hoteliers are reporting a growing trend for ‘staycations’ in the UAE, with residents opting for the convenience of local luxury ahead of long vacations abroad.
The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi is preparing for an influx of UAE residents and GCC travellers during what many would expect to be the region’s low season.
As a travel alternative, guests can escape the exorbitant costs of long hotel stays and high-taxed flights by choosing to travel locally.
“When planning a holiday, we often look past the wonderful places that are just on our doorstep, and which could be less stressful on our pockets. The resort is a secret hideaway in Abu Dhabi and a home away from home for elite travellers,” said Marwan Fadel, Area Director of Sales and Marketing at the hotel. “Our luxury surroundings, state-of-the-art amenities and distinctive St. Regis service contribute to every guests’ ideal staycation.”
