Turndown amenities for St. Regis Saadiyat Island
About St. Regis Saadiyat Island
St. Regis Saadiyat Island is the new addition to the St. Regis hotels. The hotel opened in the end of 2011 and is the first St. Regis property in Abu Dhabi. The new propery offers 377 luxurious guest rooms and suites, signature Iridum spa, proximity to the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, and a variety of dining outlets.
St. Regis Saadiyat Island is a contemporary luxury resort, designed with the elements of Meditteranean architecture and details with Arabic flair. The hotel’s decor is based on the natural elements and simple, neutral color scheme that compliments the beach and the sea. This allows hotel’s interior to convey luxury but without being too flashy or distracting.
Room amenities for St. Regis Saadiyat Island
Glass Studio collaborated with the resort’s opening team to create a line of amenity items for the hotels’ guest rooms and suites.
The line for the hotel’s room amenity program includes 11 items, from small dishes for turndown service to large ice buckets and fruit bowls, which are combined according to the type of the room.
The main idea of our designs for this property was to create amenities that would complement the interior and accentuate the luxurious yet minimalstic and elegant style of the rooms.
Our designers decided to get inspiration from the hotel’s beautiful beach setting and to incorporate the colors of the scenery into amenities.
Our designers selected a soft blue color (the color of the sea), conveyed through the crackled pattern, as the base of the design. They selected smooth, free-form shapes for the amenities that march with the calming ambiance of the rooms.
Designs also featured items with glass cloche, such as dessert plates, in order to protect the food that is served in the rooms.
