Was everything you would expect from Anantara Group. Was there to celebrate my gfs' birthday and the crew made sure they are reminded of being a year older (hah) in every step of the way. The sandstorm was a damper as we were hoping to have dinner out in the desert. At least the crew was honest to recommend us...

Qasr Al Sarab is simply beautiful and impressive. Arabian indulgence at its best! My friend and I decided to have a weekend getaway far from the bustling city life. And to explore the desert as we have never done it before. It was a long drive from Abu Dhabi city to the property, which takes more than 2 hours. There's...

We stayed in a pool villa for one week with our 1 year old. It wired perfectly, when he napped around mid day we could still chill and enjoy the pool and have food in the room dining area. It worked great. The survice everywhere around the hotel was second to none and we can't wait to go back. Thanks...

The long drive from Abu Dhabi of about 2 hours is worthwhile. The magical sand dunes will take your breath away. The room is spacious and rich of Arabian elements. Climbing the dunes to see the sunset is the highlight of the trip

Great , big , Moroccan style rooms opening up for a little private lawn of green grass but a perfect view of the dunes! Best sleep I have had in years on the most comfortable beds. Aircon works beautifully and an amazing spot for dune / desert activities. Recommend for Business and Couples. Bring a costume, sunscreen and hat!
