Just seven minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport, the gorgeous, natural 27-square-kilometre Saadiyat Island has been undergoing a remarkable transformation into a world-class leisure, residential, business and cultural hub. It houses the world's largest single concentration of premier cultural assets, including the Louvre Abu Dhabi
, and will include Zayed National Museum and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi in the future. All of these stunning spaces have been designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winners. The island also boasts two gorgeous white-sand beaches (which protect critically endangered Hawksbill turtles), the competition-worthy Saadiyat Beach Golf Club
and a collection of luxury hotels.
