1) Zaya Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi

A short drive away from Dubai, Zaya Nurai Island is ideal for those that enjoy privacy, peace and beachfront living. Opt for one of their beach villas and wake to the soothing coos of the ocean. 

CondeNast Traveller UK recently ranked the island as one of the top 22 islands in the world. Need any more reasons to visit the island? They have a unicorn float in their pool, besides a range of water sports.

2) Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort, Sir Bani Yas Island

Anantara at Sir Baniyas Island offers you three different resorts at the same location. Brimming with wildlife at every turn, we prefer the quiet and serene Al Yamm villas. If you want to live amidst a savannah setting surrounded by desert flora and fauna, then the Al Sahel villas are a good option.

Make sure you dine at their gorgeous seafood restaurant Amwaj and South-African lodge Savannah Grill & Lounge.

3) St. Regis, Saadiyat Island

Located on Saadiyat Island, the upcoming cultural district in Abu Dhabi, opt for the Royal Suite if you want to splurge. Up to five people can be accommodated in this suite, which is situated on the upper  two levels of the hotel. The suite comprises of three bedrooms, a private study, mini-cinema and games room. It also hosts a terrace where you can enjoy uninterrupted sea views and an outdoor swimming pool. Even their master bathroom faces the rippling waters of the ocean. 

4) Alila Jebel Akhdar, Oman

If you want to escape the desert heat, head to the mountains in Oman at the gorgeous Alila Jebel Akhdar. Located close to UNESCO-protected Bahla Fort, history buffs will love this resort, it's natural touches and the location.

Besides this, the hotel is designed in a rustic way with local influences throughout. Design buffs will consider this a win.

5) Banyan Tree Al Wadi, Ras Al Khaimah
