St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort's Royal Suite living room

ABU DHABI--The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, located here, has unveiled the resort’s flagship Royal Suite, which spans nearly 22,600 sq. ft. with four bedrooms, a private study, cinema and game room, spa treatment room and sauna as well as full living and dining room.

Believed to be the largest hotel suite in the United Arab Emirates, the suite occupies the top two floors of the resort’s west wing and is priced at AED 130,000 (approx. USD $35,000) per night, according to St. Regis Hotels & Resorts.

Designed to complement the resort’s beachfront location by the Arabian Gulf, the Royal Suite was inspired by the sea, sand, ancient sea worn stones and driftwood and features interiors bathed in an earth-toned palette with shades of sea mist, teal and blue. The suite includes a curated art collection, custom designed lighting and spiral staircases.

The living room features a Steinway grand piano, ocean views and access to a terrace by the outdoor swimming pool. Three bedrooms, a private study, mini-cinema and game room outfitted with a billiard table are also located on the upper level. Spanning the entire lower floor, the master bedroom offers a walk-in closet and dressing area, a spa room and sauna as well as an ocean-facing bathroom with a walk-in double shower and bathtub.

The debut of the Royal Suite marks the completion of The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, which opened late 2011. Located on the beaches of Saadiyat, the resort features 377 guestrooms and suites with views of the Arabian Gulf.
