Jumeirah opens eco-conscious resort on Saadiyat Island


Jumeirah Group announces the opening of Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort, the group’s first luxury ‘eco-conscious’ resort, on the shores of Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi.

The resort has 293 rooms, suites, and villas. Eco-conscious practices at the Resort go beyond preserving the island’s protected sand dunes – Jumeirah has partnered with Dubai-based water treatment company Trust Your Water to reduce single-use plastics. Guests are offered locally-sourced filtered still and sparkling water in their own personal reusable bottles that can be refilled at the resort’s water stations. The resort has also eliminated the use of plastic straws, favoring straws made from recycled material.

“Our commitment to protecting the natural sand dunes and sea around this hotel means that we are also continuously trying to minimize the impact that guests have on this environment by bringing in our own environmentally-friendly solutions and working with partners who are dedicated to employing sustainable, ethical practices in their businesses,” said Linda Griffin, GM.

The Resort also offers three outdoor infinity pools, a kids’ pool and  a wellness center. It also brings a 2,700 square meter spa featuring a grand Moroccan hammam, 15 treatment rooms, saunas, hydrotherapy pools, steam rooms, salt rooms, and other amenities.

The Resort offers restaurants and lounges with a diverse selection of dining options.
