My wife and I visited this resort on the way home from Australia.If ever a resort lived up to its prior billing this is the one. From the moment you arrive you realize that every member of the staff is determined that you enjoy your stay. Not only are the staff genuinely friendly and attentive throughout the hotel but also the guides for the desert experiences (two a day are included in your rate) are well informed, friendly and helpful. The accommodation is excellent ,each suite has its own private pool and a view over the desert. It is designed with an Bedouin ambiance as is the whole hotel. The suites are spacious and comfortable (especially the beds ) and have a large bathroom liberally supplied with Bulgari toiletries.The suites are situated throughout the resort and far enough away from each other to ensure complete privacy .The food , all included in the cost, is excellent. Seeing the arabian oryx and other species of deer in this conservation area and learning more about falconry were memorable experiences not to mention a couple of hair raising drives in the dunes and a slightly uncomfortable ride on a camel.However even if you never go on any of the experiences the beauty of the desert seen at various times of the day especially at sunrise and sunset is memorable in itself. The resort also has an excellent spa. If you are ever in the Dubai area with a few days free go there.
