Al Yamm 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 Yamm Lodge is a collection of independent beach lodges overlooking the Arabian Gulf, designed with an influence of traditional fisherman houses of the region. Nestled on an endless pristine beach, along a natural mangrove forest, Al Yamm Lodge provides a level of luxury second to none.

GLSW developed all signage for the project, which was themed with references to Arabian Dhows (boats), pearl divers and hand-made wood and 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 Yamm Villa Resort.
