A slice of Africa in the Arabian Peninsula, that’s what you can expect from Anantara Resort in Sir Bani Yas Island. This January and February, this luxury resort is offering its guests a variety of activities and experiences one can take advantage of to have a memorable getaway.

A 2 hours from Abu Dhabi Airport, I’ve heard great stories about Sir Bani Yas island from other Dubai bloggers during a sponsored experience flying over Dubai on a seaplane. We still have yet to visit the island, but based on the photos online, it surely seems like a beautiful place for a vacation in the UAE.
