Sir Bani Yas Island Dive Centre

The Sir Bani Yas Watersports and Dive Centre is located within the nature and wildlife reserve island of Sir Bani Yas Island. 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.

The Sir Bani Yas Watersports Centre is the launch point for PADI certified divers, marine researchers and sea based leisure tourism around the island. The diverse and unique marine life includes the Arabian Dhugong, hawks bill turtle, bottle nosed dolphin amongst a vast array of other Arabian Peninsula sea life.

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 Sir Bani Yas Island.
