Friday - - TRAVEL -

Ini­tially set to open in the win­ter of 2017, the Saadiyat Rotana Re­sort’s 327 lux­u­ri­ous rooms and suites and 13 pri­vate vil­las (each with their own plunge pools) will now see an early 2018 open­ing, al­though no date has been fi­nalised yet.

The re­sort will cater to leisure trav­ellers with fa­cil­i­ties like a mini golf course, ten­nis courts, the Rotana brand’s sig­na­ture Zen Spa and Body­lines Fit­ness Club, an Aladdin’s Cave kids club and eight F&B out­lets. Thanks to the de­layed launch, we now know ex­actly what the restau­rants are – Sim Sim will be the all-day din­ing restau­rant, Si Ris­torante Ital­iano and Bar will be the first Ital­ian eatery and gas­tro pub on the island, Tur­tle Bay Bar and Grill is a two-storey rooftop restau­rant serv­ing a surf ‘n turf menu and then there’s Hamil­ton’s Gas­tropub, an Amer­i­can/ Bri­tish pub. The other three out­lets are Nasma Beach­front Bar, the Pool Bar and Sama Lobby Lounge. In the cap­i­tal for busi­ness? Three ban­quet rooms and a grand ball­room will sort you out.
