Anantara announces new management of luxury Abu Dhabi hotels & lodges
The luxury group of Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas recently announced the addition of 2 new luxury lodges in Abu Dhabi which the firm will soon be managing after their completion in late 2010. This launch will cater to an untapped niche luxury market.
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas recently announced that it will be managing 2 new luxury lodges on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Offering impeccable luxury holidays, lodge-style, these 2 new properties are due for opening in late 2010. Both resort lodges will offer unique luxury holiday experiences that capitalise on the impressively diverse beach and wildlife blend that Sir Bani Yas Island offers. The dual launch will further serve to fill a niche market on the island, answering to the luxury needs of travellers seeking a more exclusive, intimate style of island living with the added refinement of luxury Abu Dhabi holidays.
Occupying one of the best locations on Sir Bani Yas Island, the new Al Barari Lodge, - meaning Savannah - lies in the west section of the Arabian Wildlife Park. Such a setting of utter natural seclusion entices a myriad of free roaming wildlife, and leads to captivating adventures for guests. All of this is then complimented by luxury rooms with spectacular wildlife views for unsurpassable sightseeing from the comfort of your luxury holidays in this sophisticated lodge. A haven for naturalists, and animal lovers on Abu Dhabi holidays, the beautifully appointed 30 luxurious rustic suites set overlooking the Arabian Sea and salt-dome hilltops, will be surrounded by a lush grass savannah, affording guests’ uninterrupted views of grazing sand gazelles, as well as Arabia’s elusive mountain gazelle and oryx.
Of equal enchanting allure, yet managing to achieve an outstandingly distinctive set of natural charms, the Al Yamm Lodge - meaning ‘The Sea’ - will comprise an exclusive set of island lodges of luxurious beachfront tranquillity. Residing on the beautiful eastern shores of Sir Bani Yas Island, with beaches renowned as the finest on the island, this wondrous retreat also sits by the edge of a tranquil lagoon rich with high mangroves, treating guests on luxury holidays here to awe-inspiring views of the elegant flamingos that frequent this verdant sanctuary. These beach style lodges overlooking the dazzling Arabian Sea, will benefit from a shoreline position, while others will be set back with idyllic views over a beautiful salt-water lagoon offering unspeakably stunning Abu Dhabi holidays in a lost-in-the-wild setting will all the comforts of home and the extra luxuries of a lavish resort.
But the developments to offer outstanding luxury holidays in this blessed natural region won’t stop here. In addition to the opening of these unique lodge retreats, the island will also see further development with the launch of the Desert Islands Conference Centre, Desert Islands Dive & Water Sport Centre, and the Sir Bani Yas Equestrian Centre, also to open later this year.
Also to be managed by Anantara, the new Desert Islands Conference Centre, will be located directly adjacent to the Desert Islands Resort & Spa (also) by Anantara on the north side of the island, between Anantara Spa and the Dive & Water Sport Centre. With enough capacity for up to 300 guests, the Conference Centre will be the island’s first and only venue to accommodate larger groups for exclusive luxury holidays in amidst this beautiful wilderness. Facilities will include 8 break-out rooms, a reception centre, a large sea-facing courtyard, a business centre and prayer rooms.
