Zaya Nurai Island is one of the most beautiful places in Abu Dhabi, and now fitness fans can escape to this luxurious island for two days of fitness and relaxation.

Organised by wellness and yoga company Let’s Go Yoga, the events let you experience all the joys of a yoga retreat, condensed down into a single day.

So if you want to spend a Saturday experiencing the amazing beaches, pools and restaurants of this beautiful resort, enjoy some expert yoga tuition and come away feeling relaxed and refreshed, this is for you.

The first event is a detox Yoga & Wellness Day Treat on Saturday October 26.

The experience begins with a 75-minute detox and twist yoga flow session with yoga expert Sasha Quince.

Then, once you’re feeling stretched and rejuvenated, you’re free to go for a dip in the sea or chill out by the beautiful infinity pool before heading for a three-course lunch at Lebanese seafood restaurant Hooked.

After that there’s the option of attending a talk on conscious living, then more chill-out time and a pre-sunset breathing and restorative yoga class before it’s time to head home by speed boat (the trip is also included in the package).

It all sounds very strenuous (we joke...), and the event costs Dhs850 per person if you’re coming in a pair, or Dhs950 for an individual.

Then, on Saturday November 16 there’s the Couples’ Yoga & Wellness Day Treat, which is designed to help you feel closer and more connected to your partner.

The programme includes a 60-minute gentle flow session (complete with a series of partner poses), another delicious three-course lunch at Hooked and yet more time to get those essential Insta pics of the island (with a chance to top up your tan while you’re at it).

In the afternoon you’ll head for a couples massage and 60-minute sea meditation and restorative practice before taking part in a couples Q&A session as the last activity of the day. Organisers say you’ll leave feeling closer and more in love than ever before.

Aww, isn’t that cute.

The whole thing costs Dhs2,400 per couple.

If you want to treat yourself (and your partner) and chill out, this sounds like the ultimate way to do it.

We’re sure you deserve it.
From Dhs850. Sat Oct 26 8am-6pm, Sat Nov 16 8am-6pm. Zaya Nurai Island,
