Situated on the island of Sir Bani Yas, just off of the coast of Abu Dhabi, it has all the natural beauty you could wish for; whether it’s the views over the sparkling blue waters of the Arabian Gulf or the wildlife on the island.
The resort organises lots of exciting island excursions including archery trips, kayaking through lagoons and mangroves, mountain biking trips, snorkelling and nature and wildlife walks and drives, to let you get a little bit closer to some of the endangered species that the island is home to.
After a fun-filled excursion, it's back to enjoy the resort’s relaxing facilities that include a boutique 'souk', a fitness centre, a kids club, tennis courts, an infinity-edge swimming pool overlooking the ocean and, of course, the simply divine sanctuary of escape that is the Anantara spa.
