Hotel is placed on desert next to the big dunes. There are some nice activities for children (dunes riding and...

I booked this 2 night escape for a treat as it was my husband's birthday! I requested we have an early check in (1 pm instead of the usual 3 pm) and this was confirmed. We checked into our private villa with a pool and instantly relaxed. Housekeeping was fantastic, as were all the staff. We dinned in our room...

If you're vacationing in the Emirates, it's definitely worth the trip out to Qasr Al Sarab. The setting was unlike any place we had ever been before -- uninterrupted sand dunes as far as the eye could see. And we had a fantastic experience at the resort itself. Our room (a 2-bedroom pool villa) was spectacular. The staff was top-notch,...

During our 10 days stay in VAE Abu Dhabi we made a slight detour to the desert which turned out in a great overhelming experience. A perfect combination of architecture nature and hospitality in a environment one would'nt expect. Such a breathtaking miracle
