A natural private island just a short boat ride from Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat. Hop on a 15-minute boat ride from the discreet jetty and arrive on a sumptuously designed, tranquil isle surrounded by aqua waters and white sand.

Spacious living in the form of Beach Retreat, House and Water Villas, and a 18,000 sq ft Beach Estate honed by neutral comforts and finished with a modern edge, sets a harmonious tone. There is a small selection of restaurants that cover International, Lebanese, Asian and Mexican cuisine. You can choose from various options; including to dine on the idyllic terrace with its turquoise view, or, within The Book Cellar, offering a selection of respected wines and cheeses, while you flick through the library of Taschen books at your fingertips.

If you crave privacy, you need not stray from your tranquil abode. Huddle around your very-own fire pit while tucking into a tailored hamper and private poolside shisha— if you so wish. Enjoy an indulgent in-villa massage overlooking the ocean, a round of tennis, billiards, or snorkelling and you may not ever want to leave.
