Sea pampering

Wonderful Saadiyat Island

[Tripper: Luca]

I believe that every now and then we all deserve a cuddle and why not dedicate a day of relaxation in luxury?
During our stay in Abu Dhabi we decided to eat at the Saadiyat Beach Club, an expensive but not inaccessible beach club occasionally. Let's clarify: I would also go there every day, but having to necessarily choose then I am satisfied at least to allow myself an occasional cuddle of the sea.

Spending time in this facility is truly a rewarding experience. Reaching it from the Abu Dhabi Corniche was not very easy because the taxi driver did not know it (maybe he was new to the trade) but, by continuing to point him to a dot on the map and tell him "I want to go here", we finally reached our destination.
In any case, from the center of Abu Dhabi it takes about half an hour to reach the island of Saadiyat and therefore the club, but by taxi, which costs very little here, it is very feasible.
Once you reach the location, the doors of a heavenly corner open up. The character that distinguishes the structure is an elegance combined with simplicity: all very clean, very accurate details, but without too many frills, kind but not obsequious staff, all designed to make you feel immediately at ease, even if you are not a regular at luxurious environments.
Changing rooms and lockers are available for guests to change and leave things not strictly necessary. The white fine sand beach is wide, the sun beds are super comfortable and the sea is crystal clear.
The swimming pools are beautiful!
The central one is quite large, has nice four-poster beds by the pool, which invite you to a restful sleep, accompanied by the music of the pleasant DJ, without being exaggeratedly loud.
There is also a swimming pool suitable for children, lower so as not to take risks and more decentralized so as not to disturb those who want to rest.
Guests also have the opportunity to eat, with restaurant service or even directly on the beach. We have chosen a composition of fresh fruit, also served with particular care.
Saadiyat Island is one of the many islands that make up the emirate of Abu Dhabi and is a man-made area in recent years, but with respect for the environment for which it still retains a certain wild charm: the hawksbill sea turtles, original inhabitants of the 'island.
In this area there are hotels of prestigious hotel chains and the cultural district is also being born here, which already sees the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum active (even the spectacular architectural structure alone is worth a visit), the Zayed National Museum and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi in the near future.
All this to say that, to fully enjoy the beauty of this island, it might also be a good idea to stay in this part of the Emirate
Have a good trip!
