An incredible Island resort just a 15-minute boat ride off the shores of Abu Dhabi is Zaya Nurai Island. A jewel in Abu Dhabi’s crown, this private island is home to an ultra-luxurious resort with just 32 villas and five restaurants, including Frangipani, Hooked, Dusk, Smokin’ Pineapple and Ginger Mermaid. Frangipani offers organic and seasonal produce sourced from local farms. Set alongside the pool, Ginger Mermaid serves flawless sashimi and sushi by an expert chef. Seamlessly combining laid-back oceanside living with unrestrained Emirati gloss and glamour, the villas are huge with windows for walls, private pools and king-size beds.

Particularly stylish are the Beach Villas which line the hotel’s main strip of sand and enjoy direct access to the water. Similarly, the 5-bedroom Estate Villa abounds with natural light, offering spacious living complemented by private gardens and an infinity swimming pool. From classic pastimes like kayaking and stand up paddle boarding to thrilling pursuits like windsurfing and wakeboarding, there is something for everyone. Alternately join a yoga session, or indulge in a treatment at the exclusive Nurai Spa.
