They have a registration centre based on Saadiyat island which the taxi drivers know about. Once there you get a complimentary speed boat to nurai island, takes maximum 10 mins. You book your boat time online. It is a minimum spend per day of around £92 which acts as credit on your food and drink. Zaya Nurai is one property so that is the only hotel there. We didn't stay just went for the day while on holiday at another hotel. Once there, there are a few different restaurants, a main pool area and a beach bar with a smaller pool. There are golf buggies that will ferry you around the island for free. It's beautiful! May sound pricey but you would spend that much going to a brunch indoors for a few hours so it's worth it. Only problem is the service is not the best.
