The Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi (971-2/407-1234; abudhabi.park.hyatt.com; doubles from US$354) on Saadiyat Island might be the first beach resort to actually dissuade guests from wandering around on the sand. The reason: the shore out front is the nesting ground for hawksbill turtles, in deference to which the hotel has built a boardwalk down to the water’s edge. Located on the Arabian Sea side of the artificial island, the Park Hyatt seeks to make nature a key part of its experience: the sound of the surf lulls you to sleep, while birdsong arrives with the sunrise. Choose between richly appointed guest rooms or one of four private villas that look out over surprisingly azure waters.—Angela Shah
