Loved the whole stay - from location, facilities to activities. The walk up the sand dunes for sunset is the most memorable experience by some distance - we did it with our 3 year old as well as a sand board.... our daughter has never slept better on the back of that!

A true once-in-your-lifetime experience with several desert activities to keep you busy for 3-4 days, like dune bashing, hiking and fat biking. Variety of good, yet not outstanding restaurants. Given the remoteness and limited competition expect prices to be much higher than for comparable luxury in Dubai. Great breakfast selection and quality. Extremely friendly staff.

My husband and I stayed here last week and had a wonderful time. We're not the kind of people who could afford to come to places with this kind of price tag regularly, so it was a nice treat.
The resort was very expensive when we booked, and a few days before we left we found it on Groupon for less than half of what we paid for it. Nonetheless, our experience here was lovely.
We didn't engage in activities, so I can't comment on that, but the service and facilities were fantastic. Attentive staff around the pool, distributing iced water every hour and cool cucumbers for weary eyes, freshening your face with rosewater, ensuring you had as much or as little shade as you needed often... All those little things to add to a 5* experience.
Our room was lovely, with staff checking throughout the day to see if we needed more ice/toiletries/etc. We ate in the Italian, which I liked but my husband was less keen on, and in the evening buffet - which we both agreed had a great selection. The breakfast was fab - exactly what you would expect from somewhere like this.
Every member of staff we encountered demonstrated a professional, friendly, and a willing-to-go-above-and-beyond attitude.
We've previously stayed in another desert resort in Liwa, which wasn't a patch on Qsar al Sarab! I would highly recommend this place to anyone: coupes, families, elderly... They'll take care of you!

The view, the surroundings, the hotel facilities and the staff are all amazing. Transporting you to a place beyond civilization and into the deep relaxation of a desert life.
The drive from Dubai is a bit long, but very rewarding towards the end, the last 15 minutes of driving inside the resort is wonderful.
