Loved the place, decor and the food. Appealing to eyes and palate. Top marks for the crab salad, the sea bass and the chicken ..... The pad Thai noodles was a notch lower.

I personally wouldn't. It will be far too hot and humid, especially if there is no breeze. You won't have to worry about your food going cold though 😂

Sontaya, meaning sunset in Thai, is the seductively beautiful venue at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort that is set amongst a series of floating pavilions that look out to the beach and across the turquoise Arabian Gulf. Featuring enchanting ambience and flavorsome fare, the pavilions and terraces overlooking shimmering pools exude romance by night, while signature cocktails complement the restaurant’s cheerful energy during the day.
