Discover where celebrities stay in Abu Dhabi


One thing is for certain when it comes to Abu Dhabi - it’s where the rich and the famous flock. Picture yacht sailing, champagne bottles popping, and the most decadent of restaurants to dine in.  

With the stunning landscape leaving you breathless at every corner, it’s no wonder that you’ll see celebrities taking in the view too. From Eva Longaria to Katy Perry and Richard Branson - just to name a few of the faces you could spot taking in the sights - it leaves us with the questions: Where are they staying? What are they up to?  
Don’t worry. If it’s a taste of the high life that you’re after, then Abu Dhabi is certainly the place for you and we’re taking a deep dive into the most luxurious of hotels and celebrity stays. Get ready to find the location of your dreams, but be warned… once you get a taste of the A-List lifestyle, it’ll be hard to go back to reality. 

Zaya Nurai Island    

How does a private island retreat sound? Definitely like something one of your favourite movie-stars would be checking into, right? Well, you could be doing exactly that at the Zaya Nurai island as this is hotly tipped as one of the very best Abu Dhabi celebrity stays. 

If you want to book a luxury Abu Dhabi holiday, then look no further. The soundtrack to your Abu Dhabi holiday will be the ocean's gentle lullaby at this island resort. Located a 15-minute boat ride from the mainland, Nurai Island Resort has the privacy of the Maldives alongside the authenticity of the Middle East... it's a first for the emirate. 
As one of Abu Dhabi’s top luxury hotels, choose between deluxe villas located on the beach or over the ocean. These gorgeously decadent rooms promise to provide private swimming pools and endless sea views, making you feel truly like a star. And of course, there are multi-bedroom options available for larger families or bigger groups, too.  

Oh, and let's not forget the delicious dining options. With six restaurants and bars to choose from you can expect to be tucking into international food for breakfast, sushi sliders for lunch, and Mexican fare for dinner.

And when you're not lounging in your hidden sanctuary or tantalising your tastebuds, you can kick back in the spa or indulge your adrenaline with water sports while the children play at the on-site waterpark. 

Check yourself into the huge Estate Villa or the gorgeous Sea View House, whatever you decide – as soon as you touch down at Zaya Nurai island, you’ll never want to leave.
