How to ensure your Saadiyat staycation is suitably ‘extra’…

If your staycation checklist includes desert island vibes, the peace of mind knowing all your meals and drinks are covered (and so, zero chance of accidental soggy wallets), deep relaxation with a splash of cultural day-tripping, you should probably take a look at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas.

Their all-inclusive summer staycay package starts at Dhs2,676 for two nights and comes with some strong add-ons.

You get your stay in classic room for two nights; daily a la carte breakfast at Sim Sim; three-course lunch at either Turtle Bay, Si Ristorante, Nasma or the Pool Bar; dinner at Si Ristorante or Turtle Bay; unlimited selected house beverages at Nasma and the Pool Bar between noon and 7pm; and two tickets to the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
