The St. Regis Abu Dhabi will have your head in the clouds… literally. With a suite located 200m above ground level, the sky is indeed the limit, well for now at least.

The St. Regis’s second opening in the United Arab Emirates, the St.Regis Abu Dhabi is a stunning hotel which has got everyone talking about the famous Abu Dhabi suite, the highest in the world. But if you can’t quite shell enough to book a night there, don’t worry, every section of the hotel is jaw droppingly stunning.

Common areas are tastefully decorated and leave you with no doubt that no expenses were spared to give you the best, and even if you’ve had your fill of the grandiose and opulent Abu Dhabi, the hotel has the kind of beauty that will impress no matter how jaded you may be.

Nestled in the Nation Towers overlooking Abu Dhabi’s Corniche, the St. Regis Abu Dhabi is ideally located in the heart of this vibrant city and there’s plenty to do within the towers and high end boutiques that can be found in the Nation Galleria Mall… if you ever want to leave the hotel that is.

The hotel offers 283 rooms and suites that will have you oohing and aahing regardless of your choice. For one, the views are stunning and give a bird’s eye view over Abu Dhabi that we challenge you to find elsewhere.

Traditional craftsmen have plied their trade in the hotel, and the rooms are clad in authentic Bedouin materials and onyx accented royal marble.

But as you may have guessed, the true show stoppers are the suites, especially the Abu Dhabi suite which earns the title of highest hotel suite in the world and is a strong contender for being one of the most gorgeous as well, just imagine waking up to this view!

The suite contains a dining room with living area, a study, kitchen, spa, gym and dressing room and, if ever you need some quiet time to reflect over work or an upcoming meeting, we’ve yet to find a study room as sleek as this one in which to do so. The tiles here are made of semi precious stones, mother of pearl and Picasso Jasper. Walnut wood flooring and marble complete this jewel box.

The hotel offers nine restaurants and bars to choose from, and if you ever need any help navigating all the menu choices on offer, just ask you butler (a complimentary service for guests) for some recommendations.

If at some point you feel like heading out, there’s plenty to see in the hotel’s immediate vicinity, including the Souk at Central Market, the Sheikh Zayed Grande Mosque and the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. And if shopping is what you’re after, the Marina Mall, one of the largest malls in Abu Dhabi packed with a staggering amount of stores solely dedicated to luxury brands and products, is only a cab ride away.

Being a St. Regis hotel, butler service is complimentary with every room booked and if you’re staying in the Abu Dhabi suite, you can expect to be chauffeured to and from the hotel in a Bentley… unless you’d rather make the most of the private helipad and take to the skies that is… much faster and more fun we’d say.
