Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort Opens in Abu Dhabi

Jul 3, 2013

Anantara Resorts has unveiled Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Comprising 30 luxurious beachfront villas, Al Yamm⎯⎯meaning the sea⎯⎯complements the existing Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara on the island of Sir Bani Yas.

Overlooking the Arabian Sea, the resort houses 21 one-bedroom villas and seven one-bedroom pool villas, each with private plunge pools. Each villa features a rain shower with a large separate bathtub. The retreat also offers villas situated on a lagoon covered with high mangroves and frequented by flamingos.

The Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort features Olio’s Italian cuisine, Samak’s seafood specialties, and the beachside Amwaj restaurant, as well as several other restaurants. Additional facilities include a beachside swimming pool, a library, and an exercise room.

Sir Bani Yas Island is the largest natural island in the UAE and is home to one of the region's largest wildlife. Thanks to decades of intensive conservation work, the island is now home to thousands of free-roaming animals⎯⎯such as the Arabian oryx, gazelles, giraffes, and cheetahs, along with several million trees and plants.

"We are very happy to open our fourth property in Abu Dhabi,” says Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group, Anantara's owning company. “Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort is a great addition to the facilities on Sir Bani Yas Island, perfectly complementing our existing property, Desert Islands Resort and Spa by Anantara, and offering a great alternative stay option for guests using the recently opened watersports center and conference center."

The opening is the first of two new developments planned for the expansion of Sir Bani Yas Islandwith Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort slated to open at the end of 2013. In addition to the opening of these villa retreats, Desert Islands Conference Center and Desert Islands WaterSports Center also launched recently on the island, along with Sir Bani Yas Stables in early 2012.
