Falcon Show


Enjoy a truly indigenous experience while you learn about this ancient tradition of the UAE. Experience Falconry as you learn how it all starts with the entrapment of the falcons, and how the falconers teach them to be their loyal companions. Be amazed as they take flight at up to 250-270 km/hr while you taste traditional Arabic coffee and local island dates, with the beautiful view of the island and the sunrise – or sunset – at its best. Join the Anantara Activities team every morning and afternoon to watch the majestic flight of the falcons.




Beach Horse Rides


To welcome the winter season, The Stables on Sir Bani Yas Island will be offering horse rides on the beach.  Riding one of the island’s Arabian horses can quickly turn into a romantic experience, or a fun activity for the family. For this purpose, Anantara Al Yamm Villa Resort has built stables in front of the clear waters of the eastern coast of Sir Bani Yas Island. The 30 luxury villa resort is now prepared to offer guests of Anantara Resorts a unique experience, in the largest natural island of the UAE.

Pearl Diving


This activity is recommended for those searching for a true indigenous experience. The crystal clear waters of the Arabian Gulf which surround Sir Bani Yas Island make it the ideal haven for the ancient practice of pearl diving.  Boarding a traditional pearling dhow, guests will take to the water and cruise along the island’s eastern coastline.  The crew will sing traditional Arabic songs of the sea, sip on tea and coffee and indulge in nature’s caramel – the humble date – grown on the island. Guests will be fitted out with traditional diving attire including a muslin cotton bodysuit, a rope tied around the waist and a peg for your nose.   Arriving at the pearl beds, three metres beneath the surface, your Emirati expert will invite you into the water, under the careful supervision of safety divers, to try the dive for yourself, collecting oysters. Returning to the dhow, you will have the chance to open your collected oysters and keep the pearls that you may find as a permanent memory of your time at Sir Bani Yas Island.

Complimentary T’ai Chi Classes


Guests of Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island are welcome to join Tai Chi classes at the Anantara Spa located at Desert Islands Resort & Spa. Every morning, starting at 8.45 am, guests can learn the soothing movements of this Chinese martial art practiced for centuries with health benefits for people of all ages.  Loose and comfortable clothes are suggested for this activity to allow the body to achieve the ancient movements of t’ai chi. This martial art, once used as a form of combat, is believed to increase longevity, which will make guests able to spend more time in Sir Bani Yas Island.


Towels and water will be provided. Previous booking is required.
