Sir Bani Yas Island awarded accolade for world's leading sustainable destination at World Travel Awards 2014

One of the UAE’s most cherished destinations - Sir Bani Yas Island, was recently recognised as the ‘World’s leading sustainable destination’ at the World Travel Awards 2014, held in Anguilla in The Caribbean.


Beating three other hotly contested destinations from around the world, the 87 square km island was praised not only for its sustainable operations in off-setting the affects of island life on the environment, but also for its development and management of the three Anantara Hotels Resorts & Spas resorts that are located on the island.


Speaking after the awards ceremony Mark Eletr, General Manager of the Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Cluster said: “It is an absolute pleasure to be awarded such an internationally renowned prize at the World Travel Awards 2014. Sir Bani Yas Island is a destination that is maintained in the vision of Sheikh Zayed, and so winning such an accolade is testament to his visionary work, as well as the hard work of the existing team.”


He continued: “Whilst maintaining excellent service standards across our five star properties, we ensure each and every guest has memorable experiences and leaves with an amazing story of the indigenous offering on the island; world class conservation on the Island is just one of them.”


Sir Bani Yas Island was originally developed as a wildlife reserve to ensure the survival of Arabia’s endangered species and is now home to more than 13,000 animals roaming the 4,100 hectare Arabian Wildlife Park on the island.


To take advantage of the unique destination of Sir Bani Yas Island, Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara (the first Anantara property to be developed on the island six years ago), is offering an exclusive full board rate from AED 1,450 per room per night, that will allow guest’s to make the most of the diverse activities as well as the culinary offerings as well.
