Rixos Hotel, Saadiyat Island

Hi All, my family and I are travelling to Abu Dhabi next March 2019. We're interested in staying in the new all inclusive Rixos on Saadiyat island. Travel agent tells us its due to open in November 2018 but finding if very hard to find any information on it. Anyone have any more information on this hotel and the likely opening date? Worried it may be delayed and not open in time for our stay! Thanks everyone

I’d have a Plan B.

UAE is notorious for delays. On top of that, due to retracting economy construction and development work is generally going slower on many projects.

Hotels tend to open in phases from soft opening, so whilst it’s possible this hotel could indeed be open in Nov, given the paucity of committed info online I’d be a little wary.

The official description of the all inclusive packages doesn’t build confidence (subject to change, will be advised on arrival)

That said, there’s another four months after that before you visit, and year end is a peak travel time so they’d likely want to be ready by then. See how it is in January before panicking...

It will open by November as they have already started the hiring process. They have another hotel in Dubai at the Palm Jumeirah. I suggest you communicate with their reservations team in Dubai as it is their main branch in the UAE.

Hello

I am also looking at this hotel and staying in April. Did you book? I am a bit worried as I have seen some pictures on line and it looks like a construction site

Thanks

@DavidPohl will all facilities be open mid October? Or will it be a soft opening with the remainder of facilities opening over following months?
