St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort recognised by World Golf Awards

The world-class facilities for golfers travelling to Abu Dhabi were recognised at the recent World Golf Awards ceremony, where the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi was named the World’s Best Golf Hotel.

Voted for by golfers from across the globe, the accolade was announced as part of the second annual World Golf Awards ceremony held in the Algarve and placed the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort above other high-profile venues thanks to the unrivalled experience it offers golfers.

Overlooking the impressive Saadiyat Beach Golf Club – which was named as the United Arab Emirates’ Best Golf Course at the awards ceremony – the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort boasts stunning Mediterranean architecture and a contemporary interior design that is just 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Situated just 500 metres from the coast of Abu Dhabi, the St Regis Island Resort offers a true beachfront retreat with unmatched Arabian Gulf views and a stunning backdrop that includes Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, designed by Gary Player.


Its array of diverse dining facilities, onsite Spa Suites and a selection of leisure facilities provide ultimate relaxation for those staying in one of the 377 room and suites on offer.

“We’re absolutely delighted to win an award that is so highly valued across the world and would like to thank all golfers that voted for us,” said Clinton Norris, complex sales manager, golf for the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort.

“We’ve worked extremely hard to build the very best in special offers and packages for international and domestic golfers coming to the area, who want to experience the very best that Abu Dhabi has to offer.”

As well as the three championship courses in Abu Dhabi, golfers staying at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort also have the opportunity to play other diverse pay-and-play golf venues – a compact and floodlit course in the heart of the capital in Abu Dhabi City Golf Club, an oasis course in the shadow of the soaring Jebel Hafeet heights of Al Ain in Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club, and a truly unique sand golfing experience at the Al Ghazal Golf Club.
