We´ve spent just one night on our way from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Easy and beautiful desert road to arrive there. We got the family tower room and that was simply amazing! The room is incredible: 2 floors very well decorated, confortable beds and with plenty of space. Below big room with a big bathroom. Loaded frigobar and welcoming fruits and dates.

Upstairs: 2 suites (with one queen bed in each one) and a small living room.

The place in the middle of nowhere has a landscape of indescribable beauty.

The dinner was very nice and the show also. Well served and with friendly staff. The only thing is that they could have a way to charge what people spend at room bill... We left room for dinner without wallet. We thought that everything was included or, if not, could be billed. After dinner and before the show starts (some minutes between one and another), staff was starting to say that the beer should be paid.... it was kind of inconvenient, as you don´t want to come back to your room when you are having a good time and you know that you are going to miss part of the show....

Breakfast is good.

They were a little bit confused about activities reservations. We had reservations for 3 quad bikes and arrived on time. A larger group arrived 1 minute before us and the hotel let them pass our turn. They didnt know how to explain why that happened and, in order to clear up the misunderstanding, gave us 5 more minutes at the bikes. We had fun with the kids at the dunes!

After that, we did sandboad, jumped at the pool and before check out we had time to a quickly camel riding (and again a group passed our turn and we had to protest as we had time to take our road to Abu Dhabi).

Despite of these "activities Schedule" problems, as I said, the place is amazing and it´s worth to spend a night!

I just went there yesterday for a day tour...Such a lovely and peaceful Desert Safari Camp with Emirati themed accommodations...We enjoyed the stunning dune bashing, camel riding, henna tattooing, etc...So much activities to do. Staff were very helpful and amicable...We had delectable dinner, followed by an acoustic arabic performer and a great belly dancer...Highly recommended for families, friends and couples who would want to have a relaxing and pleasant vacation...

I've made a mistake treating this place as a hotel whereas even they consider themselves an overnight safari place. And for such - its perfect. In 24 hours you get whats best in the place - secluded area, camel ride, dinner with music, fun dune bashing in the morning, one hour at the pool and you go back – for such sort of activities I can recommend this place with all my heart.
But... I stayed three nights and found the other side. Everyday I had to ask for room cleaning. Everyday I had to ask for pool towels and everyday it was the same story – they were looking for them all over the place. You get two small bottles of water in the room – they were not delivered the next day, and I had to ask for them on the third. Same with fruits – you get a kiwi, apple and orange at the arrival. I ate it of course as its quite a long day between breakfast and dinner. Of course – next day basket remained empty. For this price for the night it really wouldnt hurt them to give me a small bottle of water and an three fruits a day... Also there were some pool atractions – water cascade and so on, and stuff kept turning it off when we were alone at the pool area, only to turn it back again when the next safari group or another couple arrived. Of course I can live without water cascade, but it felt as we were not enough to have them turn it on and it wasnt a nice feeling.
Also if you make a reservation via booking – mind there is NO WIFI, despite what is stated on booking. There are two computers at the reception area for guests use.

Stayed one night only on the way to Dubai. The desert camp, room, facilities, activities and staffs were great. Dinner and breakfast can be improved. Our family of 4 adults and 1 child stayed at the suite and our whole family loved the experience.

Surrounded by desert and watch the sunrise from room. Loved it. Staffs were friendly, approachable and always ready to help. Loved it.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed and true to desert living.

We had our childrens 21st & 16th birthday celebrations here. The village was clean, the rooms were gorgeous, food lovely and the staff were so attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Hope you don't expand as more rooms would spoil the overall feel of such a peaceful place to be.
