We almost skipped staying at Qsar Al Sarab solely because of the long drive. Thank goodness we changed our minds. This place was spectacular! I honestly would have skipped Abu Dhabi altogether to spend more time here. The room was beautiful, cozy and well-appointed. We had a garden view room with a good-sized balcony with great views over the dunes... More

We came to Qasr Al Sarab from the desert island resort (Sir Bani Yas) and knew roughly what we could expect of Anantara in the UAE. I thought the rooms and the building were very impressive - spacious rooms, decorated with good taste, huge bathrooms, big pool, impressive breakfast selection. We also tried a 60-minute de-stress massage at the spa... More
