Experience World-class Service at Nurai Island Resort

Nurai Island Resort is located along the Arabian Gulf in Abu Dhabi. Just a 12-minute boat ride from Abu Dhabi’s Saadiyat Island and a 60-minute journey from Downtown Dubai. This exclusive island resort is surrounded by clear waters, powder-white soft sand and lush vegetation.

The contemporary villas are designed to blend into the landscape and they all come with private temperature-controlled pool and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Arabian Sea. They boast an outdoor terrace, a spacious living area and Nespresso machine. A soothing soaking tub and rain shower are also featured.

Individual and group personal trainer and yoga sessions can be organized on sunrises and sunsets while the younger guests are having fun at the Petit Z kids club. Guests can experience the unique UAE ambiance of our exclusive Nurai Spa while enjoying magical view to the sea and listening to the waves during the individual spa session or rejuvenating couple massage.

Frangipani offers organic and seasonal produce sourced from local farms for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A pool setting like no other, Ginger Mermaid is a place with a fine selection of flawless morsels of raw sashimi and sushi carved by the experted chef.

Nurai Welcome Center is 10 minutes' drive away from Yas Mall and 13 minutes from Yas Links Golf course. This resort is only 30 minutes' journey from Abu Dhabi International Airport.
