Where you’ll be

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Meaning ‘Island of Happiness’ in Arabic, Saadiyat Island is the most sought-after address in Abu Dhabi and Villa Lazuli is situated in one of its most exclusive residential communities - Saadiyat Beach Villas.

What makes our neighbourhood special...

*Amenity overload - free access to Saadiyat Beach Villas’ gated-community facilities (parks, children’s play areas, state-of-the-art gyms, pools, tennis and squash courts), all easily accessible on foot or with the villa’s complimentary golf-carts. Guests can also participate in a huge array of community well-being classes… from yoga, Zumba, aqua aerobics, pilates, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Tibetan sound healing and belly dancing for a small fee...perfect for having fun.

* 5-star leisure & entertainment cluster - situated minutes from renowned luxury hotels and resorts (St.Regis, Park Hyatt, Jumeirah, Rotana, Rixos), Abu Dhabi’s very best restaurants, day spas and the breathtaking Par 72 Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, the Arabian Gulf’s first beachfront course...perfect for enjoying and discovering.

Here’s a handful of Dr Charlotte’s top, local picks…

* For great coffee, visit Cabana at Saadiyat Beach Club
* For a fabulous lunch, Mare Mare at Jumeirah Saadiyat Island Resort
* For scenic sundowners, Beach House Bar at Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi
* For the famous ‘Friday brunch’, splash out at Oléa, The St.Regis Saadiyat Island

* Nature on your doorstep - 9km of white sand, turquoise waters and lush mangrove sanctuaries, the area offers a surprising abundance of natural wonder. Directly in front of the villa on Saadiyat Beach is a special nesting ground for the endangered Hawksbill turtle (April - August). Sightings of dolphin, gazelle, flamingo and dugong are also not uncommon on the many walks, kayak and boat trips available...perfect for cherishing.

* Cultural hub - You can’t get a more unique landmark than the spectacular Louvre Abu Dhabi, an art and civilization museum located less than 15 minutes away in Saadiyat Island’s Cultural District. With 8,000 square metres of galleries, it is the largest art museum in the Arabian peninsula and deserves a whole day spent exploring.

I first fell in love with Saadiyat when I saw an exhibition about Sheikh Zayed's unique vision for Saadiyat Island, whilst staying at Emirates Palace with Shakira for New Year's Eve in 2008. I was so impressed that I decided to save up to buy a home on this special island and to relocate from my home in London. This was a dream I eventually fulfilled in 2015. I've named the property Villa Lazuli after the deep-blue metamorphic rock and semi-precious stone Lapiz Lazuli - said to bring the energy of leadership & vision. Being so close to the azure waters of Saadiyat Beach, the villa's style is very much coastal chic, meets Mediterranean luxury and eclectic world-charm. I’ve spent the last five years meticulously designing, crafting and lovingly transforming this home into my dream island property. There is a story behind every mosaic tile and hand-blown chandelier as well as all the unique celebrity artwork and decorative pieces which we have accumulated through my foundation's work with celebrities and leaders in their field. These items are hung on the walls and also available for your use. Each celebrity piece of artwork has a story, a message of hope for the 21st Century, all of which I’d be very happy to share with you during your stay if it's of interest to you. I have decided to open my home to high-end boutique vacation clients and guests, at this time, to help generate funds for good causes. I plan to cover the costs of the three full-time staff who have been hired specifically to take care of you, (Simiso our Live-In Property Manager & House Keeper, Rene our South African Bookings Concierge and our talented Sari who takes on the multiple titles of Maintenance, Landscaping, Pool Cleaning & Golf Cart Driver for our guests), and donate the balance of the net proceeds to fund charitable endeavours in Asia & Africa, as our world sure needs all our help right now. I hope you will choose Villa Lazuli and enjoy my unique home on our beautiful Saadiyat Island, as much as I do. Light & love, Charlotte
