A four night stay to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was fabulous from start to finish. Staff are fantastic and cannot do enough for you. We had a garden terrace room which was stunning, biggest bath I have ever seen. We loved happy hour cocktails in the rooftop bar watching the sun go down. The dessert night walk and sunrise... More

If you want time off and really relax, go to Qasr Al Sarab. Located in the middle of the desert yes it is a long ride from Dubai or Abu Dhabi but it's worse it 100%! The rooms are spacious, the service is great and the views are absolutely stunning. You will not regret.

Have just spent 2 nights at this very impressive place set in the middle of the rolling sand dunes in the empty quarter (aptly named). The place is built to resemble a desert fort and cost over £600 million to build. The first thing to say is that the place is bigger that you might think from the web site.... More

We were told, the morning of our arrival, by reservations that our rooms would be ready for an early-ish arrival and they weren't. When we complained we were sent 3 different levels of staff to explain the same story to us. No one offered to make the experience better. There was never an invitation to do something while we were... More

My wife and I stayed at Anantara Al Sarab for two nights and it was absolutely incredible. I was afraid to drive from Dubai to there but it was very easy. We took three hours from Jumeirah to there.

Utterly stunning and fantastic! Meal prices too over-the-top though. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful! This resort is a must for everyone! Loved the isolation, the majestic and magnificent views and dunes. We really appreciated the fact that bottled drinking water was free and plentiful. Loved the poolside service!

We just spent two nights at the Qasr Al Sarab and truly wished that we could have stayed longer. It was definitely the highlight of our tour of the UAE.

Just 2 nights here for us, so a bit of a jaunt for such a short stay. Easy enough to find and a "real" oasis in the middle of nowhere.
