Qasr al Sarab is a beautiful hotel in the Liwa desert. The main building is stunningly decorated and gives you the feeling of stepping right into a Lawrence of Arabia scene. Staff is very friendly, but many are not knowledgeable and it is difficult to get them to understand what you mean. During our stay we had an issue with... More

The resort truly focuses on the natural beauty of the region and the architecture ensures that every guest who stays at the resort cherishes its beauty with waking up every morning to its beautiful landscapes and ends...

yes, the location is amazing and it is a unique experience. Does it deserve this price level and a not so outstanding service ? not for me. The hotel is super nice, very clean and the food is very good quality. Issue is in the service that is not quite what you would expect. Needing to ask twice for something,... More

This hotel experience is simply unique given its amazing desert location and quality of amenities. If you are looking for a luxury stay in the desert, then look no further. We've been twice as a family and would not hesitate to go again.
