As well as game drives, the adjacent Desert Islands Resort & Spa offers stylish and luxurious accommodation. Indigenous fabrics and original artworks adorn every room, creating a feeling of traditional opulence and luxury. Each room has a private balcony or terrace with views across the lush tropical gardens, the infinity-edge pool or the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Abu Dhabi may not be the first place you'd consider for a safari, but Sir Bani Yas Island, a short flight from the city and the former retreat of the late Sheikh Zayed, is the surprising location of the Arabian Wildlife Reserve, home to oryx, eland, giraffe and cheetah.

Dining at Desert Islands Resort & Spa is an experience in itself with an superb range of culinary options ranging from traditional Middle Eastern to sumptuous seafood and sizzling steaks, all served in the stylish surroundings of the resort's restaurants. For something extra special, Anantara's Dining by Design 'affords guests the ultimate in private dining from a romantic signature dinner on the beach to an indulgent sunset supper, served on your own private balcony.

There is of course a wealth of leisure experiences on offer along with an abundance of activities for guests to choose from. Relax and unwind at the Anantara Spa, experience world-class diving amongst the island's coral reefs or explore the wildlife and landscapes of the island itself on a memorable nature and wildlife drive.

We like: This luxurious retreat is set just a stone's throw away from the spectacular nature of the Arabian Wildlife Reserve.

Best for: Honeymooners, couples and nature lovers
