Welcome to Abu Dhabi´s own Desert Islands, a collection of eight islands where you can get up close and personal with nature and wildlife, discover past civilizations, go on exciting adventures and immerse yourself in Arabic traditions while enjoying our special brand of five-star hospitality.
At Desert Islands we exercise respect and take responsibility for the legacies of the past, the experiences of the present and the visions for the future.
