Just a short boat ride from mainland Abu Dhabi, Sir Bani Yas Island is an unspoilt nature reserve floating in the Arabian Gulf. When you stay at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villas you’ll feel a world away from the UAE’s soaring skyscrapers and mega-malls. Get ready to explore the sands, mangroves and rolling desert hills of this beautiful island.
Sir Bani Yas Island is home to a trio of Anantara resorts, and you’ll have access to all three. Head to the grand Desert Islands Resort, where you’ll find a spa, stables and exceptional eateries. Take a quad bike journey across the rugged island to discover Middle Eastern bites at Al Shams, or tuck into African dishes at Savannah Grill. Or, if you’re in the mood for a leisurely lunch, wander down to the beach for rich Italian cuisine at Olio – Al Yamm’s resident restaurant. With private mangrove-shrouded rooms and plenty of activities, Anantara Al Yamm Villas gives you the best of both worlds.
Escape the hustle and bustle of Abu Dhabi on Sir Bani Yas Island. Almost half of its land is reserved for wildlife, so it’s a peaceful place to soak up the hot sun and relax. Watch endangered animals like Arabian oryx and sand gazelles running free across the plains, or take a game drive through the wildlife park to spot Sudanese cheetahs and Somali giraffes. You might even catch a glimpse of sea turtles and dolphins in the ocean, if you’re lucky.
Head to The Palm for breakfast and you’ll discover a vast menu of international and Middle Eastern treats waiting for you. The themed dinners are a treat, too.
This poolside venue is a great place to grab mid-afternoon snacks or drinks as you sunbathe or swim. When the sun disappears, dine on Arabian dishes or savour a nightcap at the bar.
Sail off to the Mediterranean at Olio, which serves up Italian-inspired meals all day. You can pair roasted black cod and tiramisu with vintage wines from the cellar.
Tuck into fresh seafood, fresh salads and grills at Amwaj’s beachside terrace. And, come evening, you can toast marshmallows on the roaring bonfire.
Venture out to Sir Bani Yas Island’s grasslands and you’ll find succulent steaks and dishes from across Africa. You might even catch a glimpse of the surrounding wildlife as you dine.
If you’re marking a special occasion, celebrate with a curated dining experience from Anantara. Watch the sunset from the shelter of a private gazebo as you dine on a personalised menu of treats.
Don’t fancy leaving your villa for dinner? You can request international dishes to come to you, any time of night or day.
All 30 villas at Anantara Al Yamm feel close to nature, as each one overlooks either the golden sands and calm seas, or the island’s dense mangroves. Inspired by traditional Bedouin dwellings, each villa has plenty of Middle Eastern charm alongside all the luxury features you’d expect from somewhere this sophisticated.
