Located just 500 meters off the coast of Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat is renowned for white sand beaches so pristine that they draw Hawksbill Turtles, who nest in their native sand dunes while playful Bottlenose Dolphins splash in the bordering turquoise blue waters. Accordingly, The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi and the adjacent Saadiyat Beach Golf Club—designed by legendary golfer Gary Player—have been developed according to strict eco-guidelines. Further, since the resort’s opening on December 26, 2011, the nearby Saadiyat Cultural District has gained international renown. Its reputation as a cultural center continues to grow as construction persists, with the first museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, scheduled to open in 2015.
