Abu Dhabi is an island floating in the Persian Gulf next to the peninsula of Qatar. This capital city of the United Arab Emirates is surrounded by almost 200 smaller islands. Each island has something of interest and some of the trendiest places in the world are contained within either Abu Dhabi’s mainland or Islands.
Saadiyat Island is turning into a luxury cultural and leisure destination. The island is undergoing major development. Classy residences, world leading entertainment and business centres, museums and resorts are currently being built. When complete, it is hoped that this island will house over 150,000 residents. The island’s breathtaking sites of towering sky scrapers and elegantly designed buildings will see many people clambering to buy the islands new apartments. Property in Abu Dhabi is incredibly desirable, as it is also certainly the place where spending can never be described as anything other than “big”.
Sir Bani Yas Island covers 85 square metres and is a nature reserve owned by Desert Islands. It has a 64 room, 5 star resort open to guests who can feast their eyes on the many animals free to roam about. Hyenas, cheetahs and gazelles are just a few of the animals on display. A special sea plane service and a fleet of boats operated by Desert Islands allows for constant flow of transportation for commuters travelling to and from the island. Guests can take part in snorkelling, archery, bike riding, falconry, hiking and many wildlife drives, as you can see; there is always something to do or see on Sir Bani Yas.
