Finalists revealed for Condé Nast Traveller ME’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2018/2019
18 Feb 2019

We’re delighted to share the news that Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort has been shortlisted in the ‘Most Anticipated Hotel Opening’ category and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has been named as a finalist in the ‘Favourite Spa Retreat’ category.

Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort opened a few months ago in December 2018. Nestled on the pristine shores of Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, this is Jumeirah’s first luxury “eco-conscious” Resort.

The luxury beachfront property overlooks 400 metres of beautiful white sand on the Arabian Gulf and offers a front-row seat to breathtakingly beautiful scenery and undisturbed wildlife. Depending on the season, guests may catch a glimpse of Indo-pacific humpback and bottle nose dolphins, green or hawksbill turtles and dugongs, which live in the Saadiyat Mangroves. More inland, gazelles, socotra cormorants, grey herons and greater flamingos are known to visit. Just a 10 minute drive from Abu Dhabi city centre, guests can explore the island’s 9kms of mesmerising white beach and the crystal clear waters of the Arabian Gulf which provide a feeling of relaxation and harmony. Golf aficionados can enjoy the close proximity to Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, the Arabian Gulf’s first beachfront course.

Our second finalist is the palatial and opulent Jumeirah Zabeel Saray shortlisted in the ‘Favourite Spa Retreat category.’ With 42 treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas, snow rooms and two thalassotherapy pools, guests have an impressive range of treatments to choose from. The spa is built with marble and exquisitely decorated with dark woods, mosaics and murals. The spectacular Turkish Hammam is the heart of the spa. The centuries-old tradition of hammam is based around a philosophy of community. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy an indulgent experience.

The 2018/2019 edition of the annual Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates the best in travel, as voted for by discerning readers and consumers of the brand in the Gulf. For the past six months, avid travellers have been voting for their top favourites in a whole host of categories – from destinations, to hotels, airlines, airports, cruises and travel organizers.

On February 27, 2019 the winners will be revealed at a red-carpet, black-tie gala in Dubai.
