This cultural haven sets Abu Dhabi apart from its neighbours. The 27 kilometre island is a paradise for anyone wanting to disappear into a world of leisurely sports, walks, art and nature.
Saadiyat Island will have the largest single concentration of premier cultural assets in residence, including the Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi.
Home to the region’s first ocean-side golf course, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club creates a memorable and truly unique experience for any player. Off the green, there are two five-star hotels on the island, complete with indulgent spas for the most luxurious of retreats.
Children can be let loose in supervised pools, or allowed to play on the beautiful white beaches, all under the watch of lifeguards.
Saadiyat Public Beach is the perfect place to bask under the sun or enjoy Abu Dhabi’s wonderfully warm waters – and you might even have a special visitor. Saadiyat Island’s original guests are Hawksbill sea turtles, one of the world’s most endangered species. Every year, they come to the island to lay their eggs, and the island in turn has dedicated large amounts of resources to ensuring these incredible creatures continue to populate the surrounding seas.
Just 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport and 7 minutes from Downtown Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat Island is heaven on Earth.
