Qasr al Sarab is one of the best luxury resorts I have stayed at. It is located in the Empty Quarter in the Liwa desert and it really feels like you are in an oasis in the middle of nowhere. The views of the sand dunes were breathtaking and the staff were very attentive and provided personal service. Great experience overall and I would highly recommend staying here!

Hotel's Favorite
We spent 4 nights at Qasr Al Sarab and enjoyed every minute. As others have noted, the real "plus" of this resort are the people who work there. Beginning with Gabriele who met us when we checked in and helped us throughout our stay ending with a gracious smile on our departure, everyone was unbelievably courteous and friendly. Our guides Ajab and Shalika could not have been more helpful; Walid's explanation of Falcon habits was top notch and Szandra and Lana were patient and efficient in advising us and booking various activities. Our corner terrace room was fantastic. Every evening we enjoyed sundowners with the view over the sand dunes. Breakfast buffet was the best we have ever experienced.

A fantastic setting, our early morning Camel Ride was not only the experience of the trip but probably the experience of the last 18 months. I have travelled through the desert in UAE for work but always near industrial noise, the absolute silence in still morning air we experienced was wonderful. Not cheap hotel but for what you get I consider it good value.
