Isabel, Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are just 30 villas with either one or two bedrooms, and overlooking either the beach or lagoon. All are extremely spacious with a private deck and have all of the mod cons expected, from WiFi to a state of the art coffee machine. The two-bedroom villas also have a private plunge pool.

The hotel's Italian restaurant is top notch, and serves authentic Mediterranean cuisine. The hotel also have a Dine by Design programme, whereby guests can choose what they want to eat and where, be it on a sunset wildlife drive or on the beach. Alternatively, guests can also eat at any of the hotel's nearby sister properties, comprising of a further five choices.

There are a range of activities available, both in resort and around the island. For those who want to relax, indulge in a treatment at the spa, or relax by the pool at sister property Desert Islands Resort & Spa. Desert Islands will also house the soon to be open water sports centre, which will offer a complete range of diving courses for all levels and be staffed by PADI-certified instructors. Other activities include mountain biking, snorkelling and riding at the Sir Bani Yas stables.

Guests at Al Yamm Villas have unlimited use of the facilities at its older, and slightly larger, Anantara sibling, Desert Islands Resort. There is even a free shuttle that takes guests between the two.

If Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Island is the 'cultural island', home to museums and exhibition centres, then Yas Island is the noisy neighbour next door with attitude and (if we're honest) a bit more pazazz.
