The Middle East is blessed with some of the most outstanding sights in the world.

Chief among them are Rixos hotels. Boasting properties in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha, each hotel provides a unique ambience and a signature trademark for luxury.

But, where should you stay? Does the wealth of dining opportunities at Rixos Premium Dubai entice you, or is the enthralling architecture of Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi calling your name?

With its gleaming black-twin towers standing out against the busy Dubai skyline, the 5-star luxury of Rixos Premium Dubai is one of the most visually striking hotels in the area, perfectly placed in the heart of the Jumeirah Beach Residence. 

To match its uber-stylish exteriors, the entrance of Rixos Premium Dubai is an avenue of chic fashion boutiques and restaurants that line the path to the front desk. This is your first taste of the glamour that extends throughout the hotel. Its rooms are modern and stylish, doused in splashes of colour. A generous variety of rooms and suites can be found, catering to romantic escapes for two, or spacious accommodations for families. The beachfront suites in particular are not to be missed as the sun sets directly behind the Ain Dubai providing a memorable end to your day.


Refined Dining Experiences

The hotel is home to nine internationally renowned restaurants and bars. This level of culinary excellence is rarely matched and, regardless of your palette, you’re guaranteed to find a dish for your tastes. STK Steakhouse is an obvious front-runner for must-visit restaurants in Dubai with its delicious cuts of meat and modern, New York-inspired aesthetic. The all-day buffet, Turquoise Restaurant delivers with its Turkish-led cuisine. At the same time, Godiva Cafe provides the perfect retreat for chocolate and coffee lovers alike if you're in the mood for something lighter.

Enjoy a day of unrivalled relaxation and beachside luxury at the award-winning Azure Beach. This stylish beach club is one of Dubai’s premier trendy clubs and serves fantastic food to complement the ice-cold drinks by the stunning infinity pool.

Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island

Palatial in style as well as service, the Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island is a dazzling hotel with decadent interiors and a stunning location on the white sands of Saadiyat Beach. The first thing you’ll notice is the elaborate archways and gorgeous marble tiled floors, accentuated by splashes of royal colours. Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island is a celebration of opulence and sophistication, from its rooms, suites and villas, all the way to its dining options.

A stand-out feature of the hotel is its exemplary level of customer service. If you’ve never seen waiters bring your drink by rollerblades, you’re in for a treat. When you lounge by the pool, you can use one of the many call buttons by the parasols to make a drink or ice cream order right to your sunbed, quickly whisked over to you.


All-Inclusive Perfected

There’s a lofty expectation that comes with the title of being the first and only all-inclusive property on Saadiyat Island, especially when the concept of all-inclusive still feels relatively new to the Middle East. Many all-inclusive hotels in the world promise much and fall short, belittling the idea of ‘leaving your wallet at home’ that we love so much. This most certainly can't be said of Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island. 

The resort reaches far beyond what you could expect of an all-inclusive holiday. This hotel is purpose-built to keep its guests pampered throughout their stay, giving you an elevated sense of freedom to taste an endless stream of award-winning cuisine. At standard, there are 6 restaurants with an additional restaurant exclusive to those who choose to stay in the opulent villas. Whether you’re ready to delight in the taste of Italy or explore the traditional culinary dishes of Asia, you’ll find a world of flavours waiting. This is all backed up by excellent staff who pay attention to the slightest detail and provide a faultless service.

Turkish Inspired Spa

Boasting the largest spa on the island is an outstanding accomplishment, but one we’re not surprised by. Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island doesn’t do half-measures, and its spa is no different. Reconnect with inner peace and rejuvenate your mind and body with this fusion of Moroccan and Turkish styles of hospitality.

The Anjana Spa offers a luxurious range of facilities and exceptional treatments using natural ingredients for its oils and aromas. Guests can enjoy complimentary use of the spa facilities, such as the snow room, traditional Turkish hammam, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and more.
