  • Travels | Zaya Beach Villas | Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

    [...] Zaya is a boutique real estate and hospitality development on the secluded Nurai Island. The Arabic word ‘nur’ means ‘light’. If you are looking for amazing sunsets over the Arabian Gulf, then this is it. One can access the island with a short boat ride from Saadiyat Island, and there you will find Zaya situated in the heart of the island. This private island resort has beautiful Beach Houses, Bijou Beach Villas, breathtaking Beach Retreats and several restaurants.

    The Zaya Beach Villas are designed to blend into the landscape, reflecting the surrounding beauty of the natural environment. The styling approach of The Native Bohemians was to fuse the contemporary luxury of Zaya with their own earthy approach. Interior spaces allow an abundant amount of natural light to flood in and bounce from high ceilings. It’s a photographer’s dream! Reem and Arsalan’s passion for beautiful and comfortable spaces is evident in their approach to recreate a striking, functional and practical environment. The eclectic style reminds one that this bohemian couple travels and that they are true gypsies at heart. They treasure their experiences and have an admiration for different cultures and styles.
