We stayed two nights at Qasr Al Sarab. It is expensive (lodging, food, drinks) but it is a truly special place. The location is amazing and the hotel is stunning. The food was excellent and the service is great. Clearly one of the best hotel I have stayed at. Highly recommended.

This is the most unique place I've ever been to! It looks unreal! It is breathtaking! It does take a little time to get here. 3 hour drive from Dubai or a 2 hour drive from Abu Dhabi but definitely worth it! The pool is great, the activities they offer are awesome. The staff is super friendly! Definitely worth coming...

Qasr Al Sarab is not cheap, but on our last trip with the family we nevertheless found it to be a value-for-money experience. Our villa was outstanding, beautifully designed and decorated with real taste inspired by the local culture. We liked it so much that we decided to stay an extra night! Our son loved the kids club!
