The wild is waiting at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resorts.


Are you ready to be whisked away to the land of luxury where nature, history and the ultimate adventures merge?

This is the news that discerning guests, nature lovers and adventurers across the UAE, the greater Middle East and even further afield have been waiting for.

Adventures and fantastic days are here again! Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resorts is open

Just 25 minutes from the mainland of Abu Dhabi, three incredible resorts set in lush landscapes, archaeological marvels and exotic wildlife await, with the promise of signature hospitality offerings and unforgettable journeys.

Located on the UAE’s largest natural island, Sir Bani Yas Resorts, considered the top resorts in the UAE,  combine pristine beach retreats with natural wonders, world-class service and opulent accommodation, alluring the perfect balance of off-grid island getaway, five-star luxury and once-in-a-lifetime experiences in a singular setting.

The island itself is steeped in history. In 1590 Venetian explorers noted the island for the pearls found in its waters and archaeological sites such as a 7th-century monastery can be found, making  Sir Bani Yas Island a treasure trove of history and heritage where the thirst of culture vultures are quenched.


Wildlife wonderland




Sustainability and conservation is also under the spotlight.

A Royal Nature Reserve since 1971, the island is home to over 11,000 animals from 30 different endangered species.

There’s a fabulous opportunity for Anantara guests to glimpse blackbuck antelope and Arabian Oryx, giraffes, ostriches and cheetahs in their natural environment.

Like its wild inhabitants, the safety and wellbeing of the island’s guests are paramount.

All three resorts are Go Safe certified by Abu Dhabi Local Authorities and Anantara’s Stay with Peace of Mind programme firmly in place.


The accommodation




From 1 February, guests will once again be spoiled for choice between a world-class family-friendly resort or the unparalleled privacy and safety of totally secluded luxury villas.

Anantara Al Sahel Villa Resort offers guests the chance to get rooted in the natural world.

Nestled in the Arabian Wildlife Park, an oasis of African-lodge-style villas is surrounded by a lush landscape. Excursions into the park include nature walks and drives, while a unique “Spa Cabana in the Savannah” experience promises utter bliss.

Savannah Grill and Savannah Lounge serve up delicious delicacies from all over Africa, and vibrant Boma Nights bring the bush culture alive through music and al fresco cookery.

Palatial beachfront villas in a pearl fishing village hideaway await at Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort on the island’s eastern shore. This perfect retreat for two offers indulgent romance with couple’s spa treatments in a private cabana on the beach or through thrills and adventure in the island’s scenic heartland.

At Olio and Olio Lounge, Italian delicacies and drinks are served in a laid back atmosphere with dazzling ocean views.

With modern amenities, elegant traditional touches and culinary adventures, Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara is ideal for families.

Gourmet seafood entices at Amwaj, international buffet breakfasts await at The Palm and Al Shams serves bites and delights by the pool.

Over on the tranquil beachfront, guests at Anantara Spa can indulge in timeless relaxation experiences, from the ancient rituals of Arabia, to age-old eastern health practices, performed by experts using natural products.

Guests at all three of the island’s Anantara resorts are invited to discover the spa delights available in each location.

For true free reign of the island and all its wonder, a complete buyout option is available. With the world-class amenities, expert guides and luxury accommodation of all three Anantara resorts at their disposal, buyout guests experience Sir Bani Yas Island with no limits, for a truly unforgettable experience, because life is a journey.
