Everyday life is filled with opportunities to seek the exceptional, encounter the new and widen our horizons. For our worldly guests, a stay at Anantara is just one more chapter in a lifetime of travel and exploration. And we intend to make it an extraordinary one. The Anantara experience was born in 2001 with our first luxury property in Thailand’s historic seaside retreat of Hua Hin. From that day forward, we expanded throughout the world to beaches and private islands, countryside retreats, desert sands, heritage wonders and cosmopolitan cities. Today’s portfolio spans Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

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.
