Zaya Nurai Island is a unique, boutique private island resort situated in the pristine waters of the Arabian Gulf to the east of the coast of Abu Dhabi city.
Just a 10-minute boat ride from Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island, this secluded resort is conveniently accessible from all major travel ports in the UAE. Inspired by the Arabic word ‘nur' meaning ‘light', Zaya Nurai Island is a 32-bed, all-villa hotel featuring five food and beverage outlets, and 23 private residences and water villas.
The hotel's individual 260sqm all-suite villas are one-bedroom beachfront retreats, which blend into the landscape with uninterrupted Arabian Gulf views. Each villa has its own pool in 130sqm of private outdoor space, the latest in-room amenities, in-villa dining and a dedicated butler service, all within a setting reflecting the tranquillity of an exclusive island environment.
There are a variety of dining options, all of which serve local, authentic produce, and where possible, sustainably sourced from the island's own kitchen garden supporting a fresh-food-to-fork philosophy. Dining reservations – essential for non-residents – will include complimentary boat transfer to and from the island.
