The long drive from Abu Dhabi of about 2 hours is worthwhile. The magical sand dunes will take your breath away. The room is spacious and rich of Arabian elements. Climbing the dunes to see the sunset is the highlight of the trip

Great , big , Moroccan style rooms opening up for a little private lawn of green grass but a perfect view of the dunes! Best sleep I have had in years on the most comfortable beds. Aircon works beautifully and an amazing spot for dune / desert activities. Recommend for Business and Couples. Bring a costume, sunscreen and hat!

This place is a must visit. Difficult to explain the feeling of being treated to a real luxury away amidst endless sand dunes. They could have done a better job in managing our check out. Else perfect

This place will just blow your mind away.

Spent one night at this beautiful resort in the middle of the desert. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. Spent a great day by the pool which was both kid and adult friendly; lots of shallow 'kiddie pools' for my 5 and 2 year old and a swim up bar for us adults. Food and...

I knew from recommendations and reviews that Qasr Al Sarab would "be good", I just didn't fully appreciate how good it would be. It is a rarity that a resort completely exceeds my expectations, but this is a destination that really is very, very special indeed. The staff are trained exceptionally well and make you feel incredibly welcome. They all...
