Anantara Al Sahel Villa Resort

Anantara Al Sahel Villa Resort

Immerse yourself in nature at the fabulous Anantara Al Sahel Villa Resort. Situated in the very heart of the Arabian Wildlife Park on Abu Dhabi’s Sir Bani Yas Island, the rolling savannahs, undulating hills and abundance of flora and fauna are guaranteed to take your breath away.

Luxury accommodation

Blending seamlessly into the natural environment, the resort’s thatched villas offer guests a comfortable and tranquil haven from which to observe the stunning surroundings. Choose from a selection of one- and two-bedroom villas, featuring hand-crafted décor, beamed ceilings and traditional furnishings. Luxury amenities include rain showers, bronze carved bathtubs and Nespresso coffee machines, and you can opt for your very own private plunge pool too.

Tantalise your taste buds

The three Anantara resorts on this island offer a total of five excellent restaurants to choose from. At Al Sahel is Savannah Grill and Lounge, serving mouth-watering African cuisine in the midst of superb natural beauty. Further afield at its sister resorts, you can enjoy the best seafood at Amwaj, Arabic favourites at Al Shams or scrumptious Italian dishes at Olio. If you prefer, plan your own perfect dinner with the resort’s innovative option to ‘dine by design’.

Chill out or get on the move

If you’re looking for a laid-back holiday, you can spend time relaxing beside the resort’s gorgeous pool and soaking up the scenery. Take advantage of the free transfers between the three Anantara resorts and the complimentary use of their alternative facilities.

For something more adventurous, embark on a spectacular wildlife tour for the opportunity to view graceful gazelle, rare Arabian oryx and elegant giraffe in their natural habitats. Opt for a guided nature walk to learn about the island’s outstanding array of flora and fauna.

Wander along the pristine sands of the eastern coast or try your hand at one of the various watersports on offer, including kayaking and snorkelling. Alternatively, experience the island’s extraordinary heritage firsthand on a fascinating culture and history tour.
