Al Noor Island – At Night

Having been to Al Noor Island during the day, we were determined to come back at night for a chance to catch my breath after a hectic week and for a chance to have my breath taken away by all the beauty on the island.

From the Literature Pavilion with its inviting cushions and rugs and its soothing water fountain, just asking to stay a little longer, we walked through the cactus garden and made our way towards a beautiful barren tree that kept changing colour.

We then made our way past the soothing sound of lapping waves to the Ovo which is as much my favourite place on the island at night as it is during the day. It’s a strange feeling, looking up standing in the middle of the Ovo, on that narrow walkway, surrounded by water and darkness…

From the Ovo we moved across the bridge and into the Gleaming Meadows where you’re surrounded by lights like flowers changing colours.

As we headed to the exit, we came across what I can only describe as a scene straight out of Avatar. Fine lights shimmering on the barren spindly branches of the trees above made it look like you were walking under the Milky Way. It was hypnotizing, and I should have liked nothing better than to be able to string up a hammock and go to sleep under that sparkling sky.

If you need a getaway after work, I can’t think of a better place to go and clear your mind.
