Saadiyat island (Abu Dhabi)



Saadiyat Island is a large, low lying island of 27 km², 500 metres off the coast of Abu Dhabi island to be developed.
Saadiyat Island’s Cultural District will house the world’s largest single concentration of premier cultural assets, including the Lord Norman Foster-designed Zayed National Museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi and Frank Gehry-conceived Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. A performing arts centre and a maritime museum will add to the portfolio of leading cultural institutions, all of which have been designed by Pritzker prize-winners.
Zoned into seven distinct districts featuring diverse offerings, Saadiyat, a natural island, will be a multifaceted destination. Already the island features the magnificent, shore-line Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and a modern exhibition centre and is readying for the opening of a luxurious beach club and two, fabulous ocean-view resorts.
