Set against the bold beauty of the Arabian Gulf, where rich desert sunsets become shimmering beach sunrises, the Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara is your fabulous destination. On the north shores of Sir Bani Yas Island, just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, this luxurious hotel is equal parts adventure and relaxation. Overlooking the sea, with spacious private balconies, each stunning room is your personal serene haven. Plush king-sized beds are graced with fabulous Egyptian cotton, elegant bathrooms present enticingly stylish rain showers, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors allow natural sunlight to cast your room in a tranquil glow. Beginning with gorgeous tile or hardwood floors, brushed with the gold, tan, and deep reds of the desert, and completed with all the modern entertainment options, sink into the lap of luxury and enjoy true bliss at Desert Islands Resort & Spa.
On this tiny island paradise, where the Arabian Wildlife Park beckons to be explored, spend your first day on a fascinating adventure as you discover the island. Hike or mountain bike through the park's wonderful trails, come face to face with some of the local wildlife, and enjoy the beauty of nature. Cool off in the afternoon with a dip in the hotel's seaside infinity-edge pool, or snorkel and dive amidst the vibrant coral reefs in the island's marine sanctuary. For a leisurely day on the gulf, take out one of the sailboats and glide along the Arabian Sea, breathing in the invigorating ocean air. In the evening, ride horseback along the beach as the sun sets over the sands, or pamper yourself with a trip to the spa to unwind after an adventurous day in the park. After the warm Arabian day turns into the magical Arabian night, sit out under the stars and enjoy amazing seafood and the casual beachside setting of Samak. Later that night, retire to your cool, peaceful room and drift off to sleep surrounded by the complete and luxurious comforts of Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara.
