Sadiyaat Island & it’s Turquoise Sea

Yes, our next family adventure goes to this currently developing island near Abu Dhabi City.  Though we are not too far from this place (approx. 30 mins. away) we still don’t find the time to get here so finally last weekend I managed to persuade the hubby to drive to here without any plans just to have a look around and what it can offer.

Sadiyaat Island means “Happiness Island” in Arabic according to my fave Wikipedia. 🙂  To know more about this beautiful Island please click the LINK here and I am looking forward to coming back again when we have more time to explore the Island and its international standard beautiful beach where the endangered Hawksbill Turtles return annually to lay their eggs and the only unique Grey species of mangroves that can only be found in the UAE.

Our little troll peanut, accompanying us to our destination.

We managed to stop and admire inside the very posh St.Regis Sadiyaat Island Resort.  It is surrounded not only the pristine Turquoise sea of the island but also a golf beach club and gosh! everything is like so luxuriously simple for people who can afford to do so.

While admiring the view… why not have a cup of coffee or tea on one of their many lounges, each has a different theme.  Up to you which one you prefer.

Have a great relaxing school holiday for those parents like us and wander away!

“The decisions you make are a choice of values that reflect your life in every way..”  by Alice Waters

Every expat somehow missing their old home and this is just normal.  Old photographs served good memories and the reflections of your past actions of leaving your comfort zone but will be back for sure… someday!
