The area and number of animals on this island exceeded my expectations. The hotel is also very luxurious, and the taste of Italian and African restaurants has exceeded my expectations as well. The restaurant service is also very good, and I would like to give special praise to Samra. Anyway, this was a very satisfying trip

Exceeded expectations. Island had three properties Desert Island: It's hotel format, has a phenomenal pool and crystal sand beach (the best beach among all of them) Sahel Villas: Located near wildlife modeled around a jungle lodge Al Yamm: Villas by the beach with private plunge pools. Highly recommend Notable mention: The food is amazing, especially for a resort so far out. Call out to the pastry chef for his creations with minimum sugar which bring out the flavors in the food

Our recent stay at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort was nothing short of magical. The customer service was impeccable, creating an inviting and serene atmosphere. The cuisine surpassed expectations, with each meal presenting a delectable journey. Special gratitude to Arav for his delightful conversation and top-notch food service, enhancing my dining experience. The safari ride was truly unforgettable, adding an adventurous touch to the overall splendor. Anantara Sir Bani Yas exceeded every expectation, providing a perfect blend of luxury and nature. Highly recommend this resort for an enchanting escape.

We traveled hours from Dubai to reach the Dhanna Port and it was totally worth it. This island is a fairytale! Unforgettable experience. 12/10, I'd say ;) The Anantara Sir Bani Yas team is truly special and very accommodating, one of the main reasons why we like to stay at Anantara hotels. Upon reaching the island, we already saw some animals roaming around the area - what a nice way to welcome guests :) A shout out to our host Wala & Thilina who were top drawer, Emmanuel from Concierge who I spoke to at length, the bubbly and energetic lady at the Italian restaurant and Michelle and Affef at the Port. We really felt the warmth of the staff here!!! We stayed for my husband's birthday and the place was absolutely fantastic, we even got an upgrade to a pool villa. Big thanks to the GHA program - all the little extras such as the cake in the room, welcome amenities and towel arrangements just elevate Anantara above others. Definitely will be back. Big thanks, Juna & Kev (Sahel Villa 77)

The hotel is very nice and the staff is good. However, there are a few areas of development specially in the area for recreational activities for kids. It should have indoor and outdoor activities, games for kids. Considering both the climate as well as make use of the wide space at their disposal. My son 11yrs did start to get bored after sometime as there were no activities to keep them engaged. You might also like to include more veg/Indian options for food in your menu.
