Sir Bani Yas Island is a protected wildlife sanctuary just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, founded by His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Home to free-roaming animals, including the near extinct Arabian Oryx, the island offers a distinct escape from the world. Located on the north shore between a lagoon and the open ocean, guests of Desert Islands also enjoy access to the facilities of our sister Abu Dhabi resorts Al Sahel and Al Yamm.
Once the holiday retreat of Emirati royals, Desert Islands offers elegant unwinding in the most extraordinary of settings amongst resorts in Abu Dhabi. Rooms and suites are housed in the main building overlooking the Gulf, while pool villas are private oases. Explore the unique sister resorts Al Yamm Villa Resort and Al Sahel Villa Resort on Sir Bani Yas Island.
A private island shared with sister resorts Al Sahel and Al Yamm, Sir Bani Yas is an homage to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Nature blooms, with a terrain that varies from salt domes to savannah to beach to mangroves, all ripe for adventure. Ride through the wildlife park. Kayak calm waters. Head out in search of discovery and explore sightseeing in Abu Dhabi.
