This is a truly exceptional hotel. It looks spectacular, almost unreal ... Blink! Are your eyes playing tricks .... is there really such a beautiful resort in the middle of the desert!?
From the moment we stepped into the cool and elegantly decorated lobby and were offered a delicious welcome drink and dates whilst we checked in, we knew we were in for a real treat.
We had booked an Anantara Suite and it was superb with a vast bedroom and bathroom with a ginormous circular bath! Big sitting room, terrace and garden plus a small kitchen with complimentary water, nespresso machine, tea and fruit.
The pool area is huge but sunbeds are well spaced and there is always a peaceful corner to be found. The 'Sunshine Butler' keeps you supplied with cool towels, little treats of fruit and plentiful iced water. He also cleans your sunglasses!
The restaurants we tried were excellent. I'll review separately. As for breakfast ..... make sure you're hungry - the choice and quality is outstanding.
The activities on offer are extremely well organised too. We especially loved the sunset camel trek.
This hotel is in a league of its own. I could have stayed forever and can't wait to return.
