A short 15-minute speedboat trip from the capital, Abu Dhabi, or one hour by car from Dubai and you find a dazzling hidden jewel. Zaya Nurai has become a complete escape from city life helping you to recharge and return refreshed. Visitors are met with multiple choices, relax or play? Me-time or mingle? Regardless of age or agenda there’s something for everyone with a host of water activities ranging from day-long fishing trips, to snorkelling, wake boarding, jet skiing, and even a wave machine for the little ones.
Here on the island no request is too much and the staff are there for you always. The 32 beach, estate and water villas each have their own pool and beach-front location. Inside, floor-to-ceiling glass windows flood rooms with natural light offering unobstructed ocean views, while bathtubs gaze out upon stretches of sugar-white sand and lapping waves.
You have six restaurants to choose from with seafood, Mexican or pizza to name a few options. And the staff can create a private romantic dinner or a floating sushi platter served in your own pool.
Nurai Spa will whisk your mind and body away to a relaxing place whilst you listen to the waves. For those seeking more activity then try sunset yoga or the outdoor cinema. On the water you can try paddle boarding, jet ski-ing and snorkelling. The team are here to help you have fun whatever you decide to do.
