This retreat is truly outstanding. I travelled solo but also perfect as a romantic trip for couples, or even a group of friends that just want the very best in luxury accommodation, beautiful tranquil setting and exceptional service. It's very easy to travel from Dubai Airport and once you arrive at the elevated reception, you walk into on one of the most beautiful settings and jaw dropping views of the infinity pool and terraces that make up the Santorini landscape. I cannot fault anything about this place. The interior is dripping in sophistication, the architecture is dreamy and the bedrooms are the very best linen and breath-taking views. They provide the largest and fluffiest towels, exquisite food and exceptional service from all the staff. Fernando was my personal butler, the Hotel Manager Rachid chatted to all the guests, personally making sure that everyone was having the best time. Delilah was a delight, such a bubbly happy person who made me feel special with her beautiful morning welcome at breakfast. If there was a higher rating I would give it as there is nothing you can fault about this place. The gentle music playing by the pool and beautiful turquoise bay helps you unwind from the minute you arrive. They have a gorgeous spa and well stocked gym. I want to return again this year as it was one of the best experiences I have ever had.
Private, tranquil, exceptional, highest standards, spotlessly clean, picturesque - cannot fault anything about it.
I would love to keep it a secret but it’s just so good I want to tell everyone.

We spent two nights at this delightful resort. It’s a blissful retreat from the hurried life of Dubai.

On arrival we had a nice tour of the facilities. The gaming room and bar and the cinema are not yet operational.

There are two restaurants. The downstairs Greek inspired restaurant and the main floor Arabic inspired one.

Our room was spacious and beautiful and had direct beach access. The fixtures and furnishings were of excellent quality with some of the fluffiest towels and bathrobes supplied.

The whole resort was 60% occupied but with around 20 rooms it never felt full. The pool is perfectly temperature controlled and the sound of the waves coming in was like a gentle lullaby !

Every staff member was polite and helpful. Thank you to our butler fernando for decorating the bedroom. It was lovely.

It was nice to meet the GM Rashid on checkout too and we had an enjoyable discussion on his previous roles at Anantara Sir Baniyas Island (where a number of team colleagues came from).

One recommendation is to have service on the beach. If that’s not possible then perhaps a small cool box with water / soft drinks and cold towels could be helpful.

Otherwise a lovely stay and looking forward to another visit soon!

The entire experience was amazing. I did a 2 day staycation. The resort is a perfect get away from the city life. It has a beautiful massive infinity pool where you can watch the sunset over the sea. Water in the pool is temperature controlled so you dont even feel the summer heat. Rooms are done Santorini style & are spacious & clean.
The service is absolutely incredible. I have never seen such exceptional service. Before the check in they assign a butler to you, ours was Jas. Extremely polite & helpful and was always available to us when needed. Upon our request, Jas upgraded us to a beach access room & had our room ready in 10 mins. The staff at the pool & beach were incredible too. I would walk in & within a second their staff would have the beach bed ready with a towel & would bring an ice bucket with cold water & fresh coconut water. Their managers Delilah, Nausheen, & Haris were extremely friendly & helpful as well. Delilah was always smiling & would always offer to take pictures for me whenever she saw me struggling to take selfies. Dinner at the restuarant was delicious. I had prawns with scallops one night & chilean sea bass the next night. Both really good. Breakfast was also spot on with eggs done exactly as per your request. Lakshay & Rose were always there to assist at the breakfast area.
All in all I would say the place is a hidden gem. If you are looking for a calm get away with beautiful views & exceptionally great staff, I would highly recommend the place.

We discovered this hidden gem located halfway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It's the perfect retreat for couples or solo travelers (adults only), featuring a Santorini theme with a view of a pristine beach. This small, villa-like hideaway with just 22 rooms provides an ideal setting for a few days of relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of busy Dubai life. The atmosphere feels private and exclusive, as the rooms offer privacy and the place is not crowded. There are two restaurants with simple yet sophisticated menus. We particularly enjoyed the Greek restaurant where the food was fresh and tasty. The service was excellent, with a special mention for our server, Rose. Our butler, Kevin, was very responsive and handled all our requests immediately via WhatsApp, enhancing our stay. The celebration of my wife’s birthday was a success, topped off with a wonderful spa experience. The cherry on the (birthday) cake! Thanks for the courteous welcome for all the staff. Even the security guard wished my wife a happy birthday 😊

The hotel provides the highest level of hospitality. The secret is the extreme attention at small details which all add up to make the experience unique and unforgettable.

Our flight arrived early, so we were at the hotel by 9 a.m. We were greeted warmly be the staff, and escorted to the reception. A kind lady (Nadia) greeted us with a smile. We asked if we could leave our bags here till we can occupy our room, but she told us don’t worry, gave us another room as an upgrade, and then escorted us to the aforementioned room, showing us the hotel, telling about it a bit, then presented us with the features of the room. She professionaly, kind attitude set our mood for our holiday. Our most sincere gratitudes to you, Nadia!

Immaculate service from our butler Jass. He really made us feel welcome. He served us very professionally and we recommend him.

The hotel also surprised us with some chocolates and sweets by the time we returned to our room, which is a really nice gesture.

Don’t miss out the dinner at Thalasa and the breakfast at the hotel! I will review it positively on another page.. Make sure to select a table on the terrace if the weather allows it, the view sets a nice mood!

Overall, this was one of the best hotel experiences of my life. The secret, as I mentioned before, is the perfect harmony of small details.

Thank you also to the lady Rose, she works with heart, with passion, and her tunes give the hall a special vibe.

The location, the build quality and attention to detail making it a really feel like you could be in Greece. The beach and colour of the water is amazing. The staff have been hand picked and you can tell by the outstanding service they provide, nothing is an issue when w asking for something a little different or off the menu, very friendly and obliging.
Fernando, Harris and Rose were such a pleasure. The rooms are brilliant, bedding is sensational, the outlook from the pool is phenomenal.
Will definitely return here and can highly recommend.

We had heard about Santorini Abu Dhabi and decided to try it for a staycation. We were not disappointed. From start to finish the service was impeccable - friendly but discreet. The food was delicious and the atmosphere in and around the hotel was calm and peaceful. The decor and rooms were really well done - obviously a lot of thought and money has been put into the place. It was just what we needed. A Mediterranean hideaway 35 minutes from Dubai marina. Will definitely be back. If you look at the reviews you will find someone has given a one star rating. When you read the review it’s hilarious because they didn’t stay at the hotel! Guests are paying for privacy which is why the reviewer could not have breakfast on their way from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Personally I think the one star review was a bit spiteful and should be taken down but there you go.

Wow what a hotel.. ! Simply stunning and beautiful. The first look at the view and it took my breath away. Entire hotel gives a very calm and pleasant atmosphere with white surroundings. Interior decorating was excellent and it provides the very luxurious vibe to the whole place.
As we arrived to the hotel we were warmly greeted by the Front office Manager Queenie Liewpin with a huge smile on her face and was very welcoming towards us. She was talking to us with ease and felt like we knew her for a long time and met her after ages. Such a friendly person she is ♥️
We were taken a tour of the hotel by our personal butler Chathura Fernando and given an overview of the hotel and its amenities. He was a pleasant person and very enthusiastic about showing us around the hotel.
The room we stayed in was well designed and nicely decorated and I really loved the pillows. Wish I got one as a compliment with the other special goodies 😉
We stayed in the hotel for two nights and were dined at the Thalassa at dinner and enjoyed the well prepared food and warm buns. Must thank the staff for letting us stay there till late enjoying the food at our own pace.
Delalilah in the breakfast room was such delight to see in the morning. She was so bubbly and sweet and made our breakfast table more delightful with her charming manners.
I was so happy to see sunscreen provided at the pool side as I forgot to take mine with me and was really worried. Shushant gave us tender coconut to sip by the pool while we were enjoying the view and he didn’t forget to have a friendly chat with us too.
An unforgettable experience I had at the hotel was Kayaking in the sea. Ive done kayaking many time in rivers but this was the first time in the sea. It was quite hard to paddle with the waves but somehow I managed to make it 😉
Brahim was a great support to me to be brave while paddling through the water and took many beautiful photos and videos of my adventurous journey 🤭
All in all we all enjoyed our stay at the hotel with delicious food and beautiful sunset and slept to the sound of the ocean waves. Great place to relax and unwind after few hectic months..

We have been staying at the retreat for 3 nights.
It’s a very special place.
Location and style are unique and wonderful.
Especially the so called „butler service“ which means every room has a dedicated person who will take care of every need.
In our case Mr. Hayden Pillay did such a great job with an exceptional service and arranged even a wonderful birthday celebration.
The place is great to get away from the stress of city with nice sandy beach and a fully equiped gym with sea-view.
Rooms are huge and highest standards.
Defintely will come back here.
