Al Sahel Lodge Sir Bani Yas Island

Sir Bani Yas Island is a desert island off the coast of Abu Dhabi, UAE, which has been replanted and populated with wildlife. This ecological sanctuary saw the introduction of savannah and beach villas as part of an expanded hospitality offering for the place, as well as a conference centre, dive centre and equestrian centre.

Al Sahel Lodge is an African styled, Arabian infused, unique luxury resort, consisting of 30 villas nestled amidst a wildlife reserve complete with gazelle, peacocks and camels.

GLSW developed all signage for the project, which was themed with references to Arabian Dhows (boats), African influences and hand-made metal work to reflect the ethnic lodge style design.

Additionally, our branding team was responsible for all brand development, collateral design and food and beverage branding.

It now operates under the banner of Anantara as the Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort.
