The Resort

Offering panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf from the doorstep of the largest Arabian wildlife reserve, the five-star Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara is steeped in the exotic setting of the Sir Bani Yas Island, just north of the coastline, alluring guests with a lavish array of leisure opportunities and pampering facilities.

The air-conditioned boutique-style rooms and suites boast airy interiors and Arabian touches, each blended with modern comforts to make for a relaxing stay: a TV, minibar, hot drink-making facilities, and an en suite bathroom.

Guests can try a multitude of settings and fares at the on-site restaurants: international and Middle Eastern treats at The Palm, seafood plates crafted from the freshest catch at Amwaj, or more Arabic or international delights at Al Shams. 

The spa centre comes with a generous menu of treatments, but travellers can also relax in the infinity pool, play tennis or work out at the fitness centre.

Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara is a suitable hub for exploring the island’s lush wildlife. Guests can opt for mountain biking tours, wildlife adventures, horse riding lessons, diving excursions, fishing trips and more.

Staff is attentive and very friendly, from check-in to boat drop off, someone was making sure everything was perfect. Servers during meals even offered to take and entertain our baby girl so we could eat. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to friends. Wildlife drive was amazing, saw so many animals in the wild including giraffe and cheetah, and it’s all in the UAE.
