It was a lovely sunny afternoon in the UAE's capital Abu Dhabi. Been searching for the impeccable getaway to escape the busyness of the city, running errands here and there, left and right meetings and events, productive life of a blogger I supposed. Why not pamper ourselves every once in a while, travel outside Abu Dhabi? Try to look around, you might find the perfect destination that you have been looking for! It is just 10 minutes away from Saadiyat Island and 60 minutes away from Downtown Dubai, there's an island that will answer your prayers...The Zaya Nurai Island - derived from the Arabic word Noor, meaning light. 

A beautiful small tent-like all-white structure happens to be the Zaya Nurai Welcome Centre. Comfortable sofas, refreshments and Zen background music that made us relaxed while waiting for our boat ride, a Friendly lovely lady keep us company and very accommodating guys who took care of our luggage 

As we smoothly sailing in the open sea, far across the distance you can see a peak of an outrageous gorgeous natural island with modern stylishly designed villas

And we arrived in a Paradise! Fresh air, sounds of the waves plus the warmth welcome of every staff are simply remarkable, it's just a wonderful beginning of a new The Style Choreo staycation 

Zaya prides itself on doing things differently and wants to invigorate the hospitality sector with fresh energy, offering an eclectic boutique hotel experience within the island paradise of Nurai. The very limited resort counts 51 keys composed of 32 beach villas, 15 beach houses and 3 water villas and 1 estate villa.

 Had a small tour of the island on a buggy ride with our Cambodian friend Setla, he gave us a brief history of the island and showed us the dining spots to-go-to and brought us to our beautiful Beach Villa, simply impressed by the interior and exterior of the villa, has a private infinity pool and patio & sun deck, with direct access to the beach

Remote control curtains which are very convenient, super king size bed, fully air condition, Bose lifestyle surround sound system, very homy- condo type living room, extravagant floor to ceiling doors with panoramic view, luxurious details at its finest! Not to mention the oversized closet that serves as a division with attached small refrigerator and Nespresso counter with loads of knick snacks, water heater, iron board and blower inside

Absolutely in love with the oversized bathtub with an astonishing view of the beachfront and infinity pool, marble floor and wall, waterfall shower and not to mention the Aqua Di Parma supplies that you will never ask for more!

After checking-in our stuffs our gorgeous villa where we will stay for a couple of days, we went to Frangipani, a very chic stylish restaurant located on the mouth of Zaya Nurai Island that has this majestic scenery where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner while enjoying the sounds of the waves, sunset, and sunrise. Relax amongst neutral tones and brass accents representing artisanal and organic trade. 

Luxurious ambiance, modern contemporary interior design and not to mention that marble table, perfect for an Instagram worthy #Foodie Photo - #PaulDineInStyle

Who will not be amazed by this gorgeous view while having brunch? 

I absolutely love the choices in the menu, everything looks so great or should I say "Photogenic and Instagrammable" and the fact that the food tastes simply amazing and wonderful

From the soup, salad and main course are incredibly mouth-watering and that Giant Prawn is bigger than my face! Freshly cooked and well-presented

Chocolate tiramisu  and a cup of coffee to end the lovely night

After the long day of roaming around, taking hundreds of photos and dine like a king, time for some pampering and enjoy the private pool

Brought my grooming essentials, Organic Beard Co. Oil in mint, lavender and wood scent and current fave scents from Calvin Klein the Mysterious Bold Euphoria Men Intense and the Powerful - Mysterious - Magnetic Liquid Gold Euphoria

I had the most relaxing and exciting nap, woke- up earlier than the usual to watch the sunrise touching the bed of ocean while having a cup of Nespresso

Peacefully awaken by the sea waves, singing birds and a cold breeze

Another day, another sumptuous food flatlay. Even that bird also wanted to join us. The best way to start the day is a Big Breakfast!

We had an amazing Breakfast at Frangipani, this time it's a buffet setting where we had a wide selection of bread, cheese, fruits, and meats. We also ordered this delicious Egg Benedict, fresh squeezed orange juice and fruity waffles with that glossy maple syrup, wow!

Time to enjoy the heat of the Gulf sun, shower from the splash of ocean waves is the best shower I had! Strolling around in my@orlebarbrown Ridley seersucker overshirt and Slim Aarons inspired Bulldog 'ROC Pool' swim shorts and @bachelorshoes


And why not enjoy the white sand and blue sky and sea, flaunt that beach body like no one is watching! The benefits of having a beachfront villa are like you own the whole beach 

Sit back and relax! Zaya Nurai Island is a Paradise

We are about to check out, but we rather stay longer for few more hours and have a bite...a huge bite!  A toss for an amazing luxurious staycation, this Velvet Cloud is so refreshing!

We will definitely visit again Zaya Nurai Island for sure and to try as well the other dining spots like the Ginger Mermaid, The Book Cellar, The Hamper, Dusk and soon the Smokin' Pineapple Beach Club
