Stay at Sir Bani Yas island is one of the unique experience to unwind. With animals roaming fearlessly in the picturesque background and all the modern comforts offered by Anantara Resorts group offering exciting activity for all age groups with very nice hospitality, one can expect a lifetime experience

The service in this hotel is amazing. The food was really good. Amwaj, the Arabic restaurant is HIGHLY recommended. The price is reasonable and the quality and taste of food is top notch! I really enjoyed my stay here and wish I can stay longer. It was really memorable and the experience was amazing.

I stayed at the hotel just a couple of days back during a weekend trip. Furthermore I did stay there before about 2 years ago. As always, of course, that causes a lot of comparisons etc. as you would rate the recent stay vs. the previous one. In general we had a very good experience, but also discovered some facts... More

Enjoyed luxury hospitality at Anantara Desert Islands. Wild life drive is very memorable and amazing to see Cheetahs enjoying their pray at vey close distance of few meters. Well received by the Hotel and we enjoyed boat ride from main land to Hotel and return with excellent receiption facilities.

I did like my stay here, everything was good starting from rooms and a swimming pool and ending on service and interaction with staff. Food was good, both breakfast and dinner. I did enjoy safari which allowed to see some different kinds of animals and island as well. All in all, good stay.

Wonderful two night stay that started with great wildlife tour the first evening and we saw everything up close. Wonderful pool and to the gentleman who reviewed previously about lack of swim up bar and poor poolside service you must be hard to please. The bar is right next to the pool and service attendants were everywhere..going back in a... More

Beautiful hotel on this unique island, about 3hours drive from Abu Dhabi. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Garden suite rooms are very spacious and comfortable with doors opening to the garden and easy access to the pool and restaurant. Lovely buffet breakfast. One thing that stands out is the friendliness and dedication of the staff. Activity center is situated... More

We stayed there for only two days and everything was perfect. Staff is incredibly kind and welcoming, the rooms are very nice and clean, the view is amazing and the food is great. A range of activities to do. The safari drive was one of the favorite things. Although, we didn't get the chance to see each of the animals,... More

First of all, I will say that this was an amazing hotel and we had an incredible time. We stayed 3 nights as a couple with a 21 months old. Pros: - Amazing good sized room with comfortable bed and pleasant decor. - Friendly staff and very helpful with any request that we had. Their staff is their asset! Made... More

We stayed at this hotel for my birthday weekend and it was not a great experience and we feel very let down by the Anantara brand. The hotel is very run down and in need of maintenance and renovation, the service is incredibly random and even though the desert safari was good it's not enough to make this hotel worthwhile...

Dear K J We appreciate the time to share this feedback, although clearly this is not the overall experience that we wish for our guests. I was pleased to have the opportunity to speak with you about this unfortunate series of issues and I trust that our efforts to restore your Faith since then are welcome and appreciated.
