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.
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.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
