Envision sunning yourself on a beach with a beverage beside you. Imagine the sound of the waves frolicking to the shore while you sink your feet into the cool yet soft sand. This can be realised right in Abu Dhabi, on Nurai Island.
The island is the capital’s answer to the most exclusive and luxurious beachfront addresses in the world. Situated 20 minutes away from the main city and a 10-minute boat ride off Saadiyat Island, each residence on the island is valued at not less than Dh20 million.
The island consists of 23 waterfront homes, i.e., 12 water villas and 11 beachfront estates. The beach homes, which are each built on a huge space, are a world on their own. Each home’s highlights are a private dining area and an outdoor shower.
The homes have been developed by internationally renowned architects. The interiors have been painted in sterling white to infuse an element of peace and freshness. The furnishings are resonant of the nearby sea so hues of turquoise and blue are dominant. What endears buyers to these homes and is an instant attraction is the space. Vast open spaces are unique to the island homes, which spell a sense of freedom and cheerful abandon.
Included in the plan are luxury retreats for hotel guests, dining outlets, a spa, a yoga studio, a gym, a tennis court, a marina, a water sports centre and a helipad.
The only resort on the island is called Zaya, a one-stop destination for connoisseurs of good living. Everything in the resort spells fine luxury, from the living spaces to the spa and dining options. There is a one-bedroom beach villa which overlooks the ocean while keeping you well anchored to the shore. If you are feeling rather indulgent, a four-bedroom water villa is for you. All the rooms have panoramic water views.
Nurai Island is where enjoying the luxuries of an island vacation becomes a reality for Middle East dwellers. It is an untouched destination, and the sole purpose of life here is to enjoy, relax and unwind. Amidst an unhurried pace of life, feel free to rejuvenate yourself.
