The Project

Where the pearlescent beaches converge with the glittering Arabian Gulf, the sophisticated Saadiyat style is discovered. This captivating resort showcases the essence of region with cultural, historical and natural influences driving the design story, while keeping constant focus on the inherent promise of the Ritz-Carlton brand.

The Ritz-Carlton Saadiyat both tells a story and inspires the telling of tales. The flowing draperies bring to mind the Bedouin tents where poetry was recited and traditional music was played. The light colors accented with blues of the ocean continue to flow through the space to balance the connection from the interior to the enchanting and beautifully framed landscape.
