Zaya Nurai Island
With just 32 private villas to choose from, guests can expect a high level of personal service and privacy at this luxury Abu Dhabi resort. Yet should they wish, they can hop on a boat and be in bustling Downtown Dubai in less than an hour. Not that you’ll want to leave the island once you’ve arrived, what with its varied selection of restaurants, first-class spa, white sand beaches and numerous on-island experiences…why would you need to?
Those travelling with children will be pleased to uncover ‘Petit Z’: where games, activities and even food and drink are catered personally to your little one’s likes and dislikes. While they’re enjoying themselves, grown-ups can chill at the heavenly Zaya Spa, or if a more active pursuit is on the cards there is the 5* PADI dive centre and many watersports activities.
Dining offers plenty to tempt you, but an absolute ‘must’ during your stay is the brunch at Frangipani. Meanwhile accommodations are super-sophisticated with their floor-to-ceiling windows bringing in plenty of natural light and their trendy interiors creating a serene environment to simply kick back and relax.
