Having spent many years travelling and reading many articles about the empty quarter I wanted to see it for myself as previously have only ever flown over it. I realise we are all entitled to our opinion but find it hard to understand how any traveller could rate the hotel as average I have stayed for 8 days and seen... More

This is an amazing resort. The location, in the Empty quarter, is absolutely stunning, the buildings are what I imagined an arabic hotel would be like, the rooms were super and the staff were great. The pool is an oasis too.

Wow!!! From the moment driving through the gates felt a sense of peace. The resort is beyond gorgeous. Hospitality and customer service "top notch." Started by visiting the chilled pool. Talk about feeling spoiled ... cold wash clothes, cucumber slices for the eyes and constant refill on water and ice ... plus a full drink and food menu. After the... More

Get a car and driving up to this hotel, the road to get alone is already a beautiful experience. Go inside the .hotel and sit at the bar to drink tea with dates and look around. Place is amazing, the hotel is definitely not the cheapest place to sleep but it worth all the money. I travel in August, probably... More

Spent a weekend here in August. The drive was interesting. About 130km on a semi-deserted truck road through the desert and oil fields and then 12km on a good quality concrete track to the hotel. Make sure your passengers have their cameras ready! Check in was smooth, quick and professional. The staff are all friendly and extremely helpful. The resort... More
