A lavish new resort in one of the world's largest island wildlife sanctuaries, Desert Islands Resort & Spa is set on the beautiful, natural island of Sir Bani Yas, just off the coast of the Abu Dhabi emirate in the Arabian Gulf. This serene retreat has a fantastic spa, superb food, an infinity pool, a tennis court and an incredible game reserve on the doorstep. Facing a stunning white sandy beach, the stylish rooms, suites and villas are particularly spacious, decorated in local fabrics and featuring original pieces of Middle Eastern art. Take a game drive through the National Park to see indigenous reem, oryx antelope, cheetah and hyena, as well as llamas, ostrich and giraffe. Alternatively, enjoy kayaking early in the morning under a canopy of tropical greenery. Here you will catch sight of migratory birds nesting in the trees, the resident pink flamingos and the occasional gazelle strolling along the edge of the water.
Desert Islands Resort & Spa is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
