Anantara Desert Islands Resort & Spa in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

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.

Super friendly and helpful staff, loved the SPA experience and Wild Drive was so much fun with the fantastic driver Abdul (I hope i have got his name right). Wish i had a bit more time for other actives, but i spend most of my time by/in the pool....Breakfast was better than I expected. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway!

Excellent Service, great experiences and absolutely friendly, entusiastic people who work there I will come back to this place with my family - hopefully soon! The only thing that could be improved is the arrival - better accessiblity via air transfer.

Nice location, good rooms, very good ambience, lots of options for resort activities. But water sports dependent on whether. Not so good beaches, very good kids club. Very poor room service, breakfast was ok, could have been better. Overall very good option for 2- 3 nights.

We stayed one night When we arrived at 4 we had only 2 Hours time to Bike or any other activity at 6 all was closed . The Beach was closed and all plastic on the Beach and garbage items. Also next day the beach was closed not possible to snorkel. The Arabic buffet looked very poor and not fresh even breakfast was 3 star food . Personnel wearing contractor shoes and looked dirty also the clothes not for 5 star. The maintenance of the hotel was behind plants dead . The wooden floor was needles coming out. Before 12 they called us 3 times that it was time to check out. No coffee in the room or any extras as you expect from 5 star! The personal didn't speak proper English. The safari car old, bike old, no water in fountain in front of hotel. I came one time before in 2009 and that time it was amazing. The pool bar was excisting and all was nice maintenance as it was just new! So comparing from that time to now this time was very bad! And it cost all money! Kind regards Therese Heijboer
