A day out @ Saadiyat Beach Club

Home from work drinks at Iris ๐Ÿ™‚ In blogging mood.

So here’s one, specially written forย Nada Al Ghowainim from Undefined Declarations. We met briefly at the Coffee Club Middle East launch many months ago. ย Very sweet girl, and recently she was on twitter asking for somewhere to recommend for a staycation to Abu Dhabi for a staycation, so I recommended St Regis, as we have stayed there beforeย and it’s absolutely heaven on earth.ย 

Saadiyat Beach Club accidentally popped up in the discussion – so instead of explaining through numerous messages – Nada, here’s a better description of what we thought of it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Honestly?

It was okay. I wouldn’t pay 720AED for G and I though, as that was the weekend rate for couples. Very sorry, Saadiyat Beach Club! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is a beautiful beach club though, mind you. The infinity pool is large and family friendly, the cabanas (600 AED, seriously?) appears quite nice. There were lots of kids with parents in the pool which meant nice for families in general – very safe and a great way to spend the day with mum and dad. If you were there on a membership it will be worth it but again, I wouldn’t pay 720AED for G and I.

So if you wanna do it cheap, there’s an Entertainer 2 for 1 in the Abu Dhabi Entertainer book. If you’re planning to pay full price for it I’m gonna be very disappointed in you ๐Ÿ˜›

The gym and yoga room however – I really liked. Prior to jumping into the pool, we spent quite sometime in the gym room. I did my yoga, in a completely emptyย dance/yoga room, with my phone plugged into the speakers. It was absolute bliss. If there is a similar dance/yoga room here in Dubai – please let me know!

After a few laps, we shared a smoked salmon sandwichย which was so good, possibly highlight of our day there, other than my session in the dance room ๐Ÿ˜‰

So yeah. My honest thoughts ay. The reason why we made the trip there was because G had randomly won a competition from some magazine awhile back. So no, it was not an invitation ๐Ÿ˜‰ I actually didn’t plan to write about it, as I normally don’t, on very so-so experiences. But since you asked about it – here you go!

So, if you want a luxurious staycation, I recommend St Regis. I would recommend it anytime to anyone. Saadiyat Beach Club – if it was cheaper, yeah – maybe. Otherwise, give it a pass. For the full price it’s charging, my thoughts are it’s a wee bit overrated. With the two for one, it’s okay. Beautiful, nonetheless ๐Ÿ™‚

PS – their spa facilities is gorgeous. Check out the photos below.
