We stayed one night with my parents to show them the beauty of the desert whilst they were visiting us in Dubai. The Tilal Liwa surprised me at how small it was. The size makes the hotel feel friendly and personal compared to some of the larger hotels in the area. My mother enjoyed a camel ride and we had... More

This hotel is a great weekend escape for families and will be a fantastic romantic breakaway too. Even if you want to stay for a week or two and looking for total calmness and relaxation with nature, this hotel is a definite must. We spent a weekend of pure relaxation in this desert gem. Although this hotel is rated as... More

The Tilal Liwa is not all that far from the town of Madinat Zayed but you will feel like you're farther out in the desert from certain vantage points. The design of the hotel is amazing and incorporates the look and feel of an old Arabian fort/manor, down to the traditional furniture, lamps, etc., with some modern touches also blended... More

A long drive, made a little longer by some annoying speed humps along the 3km approach road, but this hotel is worth the effort. A beautiful spot in the desert that allows you to feel relaxed without having to give up some of the luxuries of a busier, well connected city hotel. Breakfast was excellent and although we didn't eat... More

A 2 hour drive from Abu Dhabi but luckily the directions provided by Tilal Liwa were helpful. When we arrived our first impression when walking in was that it was fresh and elegant, and all the staff were ready and waiting with a smile. From the first moment the staff were so friendly and hospitable, and always trying their best... More

Fantastic place, lovely rooms with plenty of space, staff really really good and a gorgeous setting. Food in the restaurant was excellent and the service throughout the place was really friendly. Plenty to do, especially if you pick up one of the packages which includes quad-biking, camel riding, desert safaris etc and the pool is lovely.

We were skeptical about a resort in the middle of the desert. Read many good reviews. The two best nights in a long time. Wife and kids really enjoyed everything, the pool, fabulous view, sandboarding, quad biking and the fantastic buffet breakfast. The arabic night dinner buffet was amazing, one of the kitchen guys Upul was really helpful, great smile,... More

The hotel is beautiful and in an amazing relaxing location out in the desert away from the big city. The room was very nice and was set up in the romance package so lovely arrangements on the bed etc, however the walls were very thin you could hear everything going on in the other rooms. The pool was ideal and... More

Although I did not stay at the hotel, that is for another time, I visited the restaurant on the 27th December. I had already experienced Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas Day brunch and Boxing Day brunch BUT was delighted with the buffet range for lunch. To be quite honest, the turkey was the best I had tried over the previous three... More

I liked the location of this resort, its surrounded by just desert dunes. Good break & stay. It's located very far from Abu dhabi, like 2.5 to 3 hr drive, had a good glimpse of dunes & number of camels on the way. service is good, staff are nice. Restaurant is okay. i liked the infinity pool which has a... More
