Discover Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resort: A Paradise in Abu Dhabi

Located on the plains of the 4,100 hectare Arabian Wildlife Park, this AED6 million project on the new Sir Bani Yas Island. The project in Abu Dhabi saw Cape Reed install thatched roofing, timber support structures and pergolas on 60 luxury Anantara Al Sahel and Al Yamm Villas, as well as the water sports centre and public areas on the development.

Cape Reed’s methods were the perfect fit for the project, combining sustainability and traditional techniques to create structures that blend in with the local environment.

Cape Reed started work on the project in April 2011 and installed a total of 2,052m² of roofing using the company’s unique cape reed thatching, and 4,124m² of support structures using special pressure-treated timber columns. The entire project has been built with sustainable design features, perfectly complementing the island’s delicate ecosystem and the island’s rugged environment. The design of the villas was inspired by the traditional Arabic fishing and pearl diving villages and their barasti lodging, hence the use of traditional thatch roofing, which means guests can experience five-star luxury with an authentic touch.

Wildlife Encounters

Thanks to decades of intensive conservation work and ecological investment, it is now home to thousands of large free-roaming animals and several million trees and plants. A bird sanctuary as well as a wildlife reserve, Sir Bani Yas Island provides an authentic environment for animals indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula including the endangered Arabian Oryx, Sand Gazelle and Mountain Gazelle as well as free-roaming predators and scavengers such as the cheetah and hyena.
