The UAE has sand, lots of sand, but the sand in the south is different, as you approach the Saudi border, the dunes become redder and taller.

This was one of the last hotel during our tour in Dubai, Oman and Abu Dhabi. It was the most expensive one but it was worth every cent of it. We had a beautiful view on the desert, we made a splendid and spectacular soft drive tour (we were very glad taken the soft one, it was already hard enough)...

Magnificent experience of a palace in the middle of the desert. Experience that we will never forget. A very nice pool, great massage at the spa and nice restaurants. The room is fantastic with a very nice large bath tub. We really enjoyed our stay here. Recommendation for everybody.
