The hotel has the villa with extraordinary interior design, biggest private pool in the UAE that I ever visited, biggest villa when it comes to the size of the property & the places that you can visit inside the property that has the Gazelles, Arabian Oryx, rabbits, falcons, eagles, hawks, camels & the stables of the horses. It is really an unforgettable stay and it is highly recommended to visit it back again. Thank you team for your support in making our stay amazing!

I had an absolutely marvelous time at the RC Al Wadi Desert. The entire staff from management to guides to servers to housekeeping were generous, hospitable, friendly and knowledgeable. While spending five days as the hotel, I experienced almost all it had to offer: the spa, the rainforest, equestrian center, stargazing, animal feeding, falconry show, archery, cruising around Al Hamra, dining in three restaurants and bars, plus just relaxing and swimming in my private pool. Everything was top notch. Special thank you to: Ramy (accommodations), Dickson (guest services), Chetan (server), Wilson and Jabal (guides), Amr (buggy driver), Naveem & team (housekeeping). Not sure when I'll be back, but I do hope to be back. I fully recommend this very special/magical hotel experience to anyone who wants to step away and relax.

We stayed at the property several nights, and on one night decided to have a romantic private dinner. We ended up having it in the dunes (as we had a small baby), and were not sure what to expect. What we ended up getting was a truly fabulous experience. There was a live fire, an excellent set up, and the most amazing server (Nikhil). We felt like we were top of the world. The service was incredible and it felt private, and intimate. We also got a super nice surprise in the form of a great cocktail we happened to have mentioned during our dinner!!! Nikhil was just super attentive and kind. His attention to detail was just extraordinary! He even noticed we were having our anniversary and surprised us with a nice cake! Cannot recommend the experience enough!

We stayed two nights using our points. Totally worthy as all rooms are villas (large suites) with private pool. The setting is really nice, specially at night! Wildlife can be found within the resort which is great! Many activities to be done as couple, with young kids and even as solo. We had dinner at both Farmhouse and Moorish. We were pleasantly surprised by Moorish, in particular their mixology menu (G&T are truly something). Farmhouse was ok. We also got as Gold member one perk to chose from a list of few items and we went for the rainforest experience and it was incredible. The team at the spa manages the crowds very well in a way that you don’t see anyone when moving from one hammam to a thermal shower. Our little one could enjoy both days the ritz kids club which gave my wife and I some quality time to do the rainforest or enjoy the private pool. There are quite a lot of mosquitos in the terrace and pool of the villa..our son got badly biten...but again is a reserve so totally understandable. We will definitely return and highly recommend.
