Staff at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort in Abu Dhabi were celebrating after it was named the World’s Best Golf Hotel at the recent World Golf Awards.
Voted for by golfers from across the globe, the accolade, which was presented to the team at the ceremony in the Algarve, places the resort above other high-profile venues thanks to the unrivalled experience it offers golfers.
Overlooking the impressive Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, which was named Best Golf Course in the UAE, the 377-room hotel boasts stunning Mediterranean architecture and a contemporary interior design, and is just 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International airport.
"We’ve worked extremely hard to build the very best in special offers" - Clinton Norris
“We’re absolutely delighted to win an award that is so highly valued across the world and would like to thank all golfers that voted for us, “ said Clinton Norris, complex golf sales manager at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort. “We’ve worked extremely hard to build the very best in special offers and packages for international and domestic golfers coming to the area, who want to experience the very best that Abu Dhabi has to offer.”
The St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort has been a significant component in the ‘Golf in Abu Dhabi’ programme launched by the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) in 2011, offering a one-stop shop for travellers seeking to book top-class golf, accommodation and cultural activities.
“Sport has featured prominently in the promotion and positioning of the destination and one of our key aims when developing the Golf In Abu Dhabi initiative was to create ‘top-of-mind’ awareness of Abu Dhabi among golfing travellers,” said Faisal Al Sheikh, TCA Abu Dhabi events bureau director.
“To have the world’s best golf hotel as part of our extensive Golf in Abu Dhabi programme exemplifies the quality of experience on offer to domestic, regional and international golfers, and strengthens our overall golfing proposition.”
A growing number of worldwide tour operators are increasingly featuring the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort as part of their Stay and Play propositions in Abu Dhabi, complementing outstanding championship courses in the region that are within 30 minutes of the hotel, such as Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, host to the HSBC Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, Abu Dhabi Golf Club and the Kyle-Phillips designed Yas Links.
