A very unique and wonderful hotel. The rooms offer a traditional Arabian theme. Views across the amber Liwa desert are stunning. Perfect for those wanting to escape a busy city life. Anantara is renowned for its spa services and from my experience this was one of the best massages I have experienced.

It was a three hour drive for us from Dubai and we weren't sure quite what to expect given the sun had set 100km before we arrived. The final approach to the resort gave us an indication of what we were going to experience. It felt like you were approaching a scene from Aladdin or Ali Baba. Very cool. Check... More

We visited the Qasr Al Sarab in April (2015) for the second time, having been last year. We spent 10 days in Abu Dhabi city and then 4 nights here. Our children (13 and 14 year old boys) like it so much that they opted to not have a summer holiday in order to go here again! It's such a... More

We returned to Qasr Al Sarab after having had a great stay there back in August 2013. This stay was one notch above. Staff were even more proactive and helpful.

Qasr al Sarab is simply a stunning desert resort.
