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.​
