My Stay at St. Regis Abu Dhabi: Superior Seaview Room
My Superior Seaview guest room was located on the 36th floor with breathtaking views of the Corniche and the Arabian Gulf. My Butler was already there to assist me with unpacking my luggage which I kindly refused as I was traveling light.
Upon arrival a beautiful customised cake was waiting for me in my room with the logo of Passion for Hospitality — a delightful welcome from the St. Regis Abu Dhabi team.
The luxury room spans across 45 square meters of space with beige and warm toned colours of carpeting and curtains with a splash of red, gold and silver accents that are inspired by the date seeds. The elegant and plush decorative bed covers and pillows are the star accents of the guest room, offering the traditional Bedouin weaving touch to the overall ambience.
The guest room had a separate spacious working desk and a sitting corner as well as a beautiful mirror dressing table located in the corridor, between the bedroom and the en-suite marble bathroom.
The bathroom is equipped with all the amenities (shaving kit, sponge, mouthwash, sewing kit, etc), plush bathrobes and slippers. The toiletries are Laboratoire Remède.
The room features tea and coffee making facilities, a fully stocked mini bar, electronic laptop size safe and complimentary Wi-Fi.
