This place is incredible. The people working here are fantastic, the activities were great and the food is the BEST that I has anywhere in UAE! My activities director was Darron, and he hustled like no one I had ever seen at these kinds of places. He went out of his way to ensure that we got to do every...

We stayed here last year for a few day and we cried when we left. It was perfect in every way. Thanks to all the hard working staff and to the owners for preserving a bit of the rural desert. We cant wait to come back.

From the moment we checked in to the moment we (sadly) left, it was nothing short of perfect! A truly unique experience! The surroundings are beautiful, the accomodations beyond comfortable, the food delicious, the staff friendly, polite, and attentive. A highlight for us was being dropped off in the desert with a spectacular "picnic" dinner for two, pillows upon which...
