Zaya Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi
Zaya Nurai Island is a stunning private island located along the Arabian Gulf in Abu Dhabi. Just a 15 minute boat ride away from Saadiyat Island and a 60 minute journey from downtown Dubai. This exclusive ‘one island, one resort’ concept is unique for the Middle East and has the feeling of being in the Indian Ocean. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, soft white powdery beaches and tropical vegetation, this cool and contemporary island is a beach lovers paradise.
Zaya Nurai Island
This all-villa private island boasts 42 contemporary and spacious 1 and 2 bedroom villas. Each have their own large private temperature controlled pools and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Arabian Sea. Enjoy the impressive outdoor terrace and generous living areas for in-villa dining and complete privacy. For larger families we love the enormous 4 and 5 bedroom Beach Estates. Each with their own private beach, fully equipped kitchen and rooftop dining.
Dining options here are varied and exciting. Frangipani is the International Brasserie whilst Dusk offers a Mexican twist. Hooked is a stunning seafood restaurant overlooking the ocean, Ginger Mermaid is a quirky beach bar serving sushi sliders and cocktails whilst Smokin’ Pineapple is a casual affair where you can indulge in wood-fired pizza at the beach club. Lie back on a hammock, sip cocktails on the swings or head to the surf pool. Guests can also enjoy private barbeques and picnics in their own villa, or head to the beach club for cocktails whilst listening to chill out music.
Zaya Nurai is a playful island for both romantic couples and thrill seeking families looking for an adventure, whilst still keeping a high level of luxury. There is something for everyone on this beautiful island from the stunning and modern Nurai Spa, the only outdoor Spa in the UAE, to the many water sports and activities on offer like paddle boarding and windsurfing.
Head to the beach club for cocktails and a chilled party vibe, or watch a romantic film at the outdoor cinema. Enjoy yoga every morning at the Yoga Pavilion and explore the island on your very own bicycle. Kids will love the Kids Club, with a friendly team of staff looking after them and creating fun filled educational programmes, a range of arts and crafts and nature experiences.
