Inspired by the Arabic word 'nur', meaning light, Nurai Island is one of the most sought after private island residential communities in the UAE. The development is an ideal retreat for those looking for peace and tranquility and is complemented by unparalleled and breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.
The island is situated in the pristine waters of the Arabian Gulf and is a ten-minuted boat ride from Saadiyat Island. Nurai Island’s master plan includes 32 luxury boutique retreats for hotel guests, a spa, restaurants, a marina, a non-motorised water sports centre, a yoga studio, a gymnasium, a tennis court, a helipad and more. Home to a total of 28 Beachfront Estates and 12 Water Villas, one of the island's main attractions is Zaya Nurai Island, a unique, boutique private island resort.
To accommodate different living styles, Nurai offers two kinds of Beachfront Estates, the Shoreline and the Seaside. In homage to the island's name, both residences are characterized by their abundant light flowing freely into every room through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, and soaring loft spaces. A unique architectural feature of a green carpet covering the beachfront estates gives the effect of an un-spoilt island and the feeling that you are integrated in the island's lush greenery. All properties offer expansive space and unrivalled privacy when compared to other luxury developments at the same price point.
The island has been designed especially for a community of successful, discerning individuals who want to relax in tranquility. Quick and easy access from Abu Dhabi and Downtown Dubai makes it a preferred destinations of those living in the city.
There are no cars on the island, therefore, residents can arrive by on-demand speedboat service or the regular ones. Private yachts can also be hired in order to spend some leisure hours. On-land service is strictly by buggy.
Awarded the accolade of the 'Most Luxurious Project in the World' by Newsweek Magazine, Nurai is surrounded by crystal clear water and ringed with beautiful sandy beach.
