Zaya Nurai Island, Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi
Sun? Check. Sand? Check. Pristine, crystal-clear waters?
Check. Less than 15 minutes off Saadiyat Island’s coastline, Zaya Nurai is
a little slice of Maldivian magic in Abu Dhabi: stunning scenery, cracking
accommodation and faultless food on a secluded, picture-perfect island
only accessible by boat, seaplane, or helicopter.
Exploring the quirkier
aspects of this boutique resort is all part of the fun: from the
larger-than-life sculpture of rose-tinted glasses on the beach and adult-sized
inflatables in the pool, to secluded nooks where you’ll find charming bird-cage-style
daybeds… it all adds up to our new favourite spot to unwind in the UAE.
