Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi was named the best place for a beach holiday in the Middle East.
Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island has been named the Middle East’s Leading Beach Destination for the 11th time by World Travel Awards and has confirmed its place in the #BestBeach Middle East ranking.
The island is home to the best five-star resorts: Jumeriah at Saadiyat Island Resort, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island, Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas and The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort.
