NuraiFest Set To Do What Fyre Festival Couldn't On Tiny Luxury Island Resort

NuraiFest Set To Do What Fyre Festival Couldn't On Tiny Luxury Island Resort

We all saw the incredible story of how Fyre Festival turned into an absolute disaster, didn't we? A high-profile, luxury music festival on a private island - what could possibly go wrong...? Everything, as it turned out.

But the dream is still alive - one tiny island off the coast of Abu Dhabi is getting ready to host what the ill-fated festival should have been.

NuraiFest looks like it will be a far cry from the infamous Fyre Festival, as well as the mud-soaked affairs we're used to in the UK, and is hosted on the ridiculously fancy island of Zaya Nurai.

It's everything you'd expect from a sub-tropical private island resort, with 52 private luxury villas, an oceanside spa and the chance for guests to drop in by boat, helicopter or seaplane (cast your mind away from those horrific flashbacks to the Netflix documentary).

In what would be a pretty amazing break away before settling into a December filled with Baileys and Festive Bakes, there will also be sunset beach parties, not to mention 'five fine and casual food and beverage experiences' - which means visitors will eat like kings.

Probably better than those Fyre Festival sandwiches, at any rate.

Of course, you can't have a music festival without a decent soundtrack. DJs like Steve Lawler, wAFF, Tiga and more will all accompany the capped-capacity event, which will take over the island between 22-24 November.

Guests can either book one-day, two-day or VIP backstage passes. With prices starting from £104 (€122) per day, there will also be an exclusive afterparty on the Friday - for an additional cost.

Cabanas, teepees and VIP tables will all also be available.

If you're feeling extra fancy, VIP packages can be purchased, which could mean a weekend stay in your own private villa with an infinity pool.

The island itself is described as 'a piece of paradise like nowhere else'.

The resort's description reads: "Our boutique private island resort features a world-class ocean side spa, five fine and casual food and beverage outlets, a beach club, and a calendar of exceptional activities on land and on sea."

One of the event's co-founders said: "The island has always been considered as the Maldives of the Middle East ever since Zaya Nurai Island resort opened 5 years ago.

"A few months ago we decided to launch electronic music festival to develop this field and nightlife in Abu Dhabi in general. A lot of people see Dubai as a great party place, but Abu Dhabi remains more conservative in their minds.

"NuraiFest offers an opportunity of the fun weekend getaway to residents of the region without having to spend a lot of time to travel to destinations like Mykonos, Ibiza, Tulum etc.

"The resort is top luxury and only has private villas each granting access to the beach and their own private pool. Along with this comes 7-star service."

Early Christmas present, anyone?
