Take guided treks to nearby salt-domed hilltops, pausing to admire the splendour of free-roaming animals. Cherish cosy evenings at the Savannah Grill, feasting on the freshest produce and succulent grilled meats.

Set amid the distinctive beauty of the desert, Anantara Al Sahel Villa Resort is an elegant oasis effortlessly ensconced within the island’s rugged environment. From your private villa, catch rare glimpses of grazing gazelles and other island inhabitants. Unique amongst resorts in Abu Dhabi, we give you the chance to explore the savannah on nature and wildlife walks and marvel at views over the Gulf. Savour aperitifs infused with Arabian herbs, and spend evening hours unwinding in the warm waters of your personal plunge pool beneath the stars.
