Just perfect

This was my second stay this year. I just can’t fault it. We had sundowners in Moon bar, the sunset and views were amazing. Ate dinner at Moorish, again excellent. Chef very knowledgeable about gluten free requirements, great choice and food fab. Rooms immaculate and spacious, great bathroom. One of my fave UAE hotels.

Isolated in desert? However, all the funs are waiting

Do you want to stay in a Bedouin tent when you go to the UAE sand desert? Do you also want to have the real pleasures of staying in a tent? Then this hotel is the must for you. I stayed in this hotel for 2 nites, and had no any dissatisfaction at all. Isn’t it extra-ordinarily special, when considering the fact that even an excellent pearl has a flaw?
Among all the well-trained staff, I’d like to meet Rita when you check-in at the reception desk. When going to spa, Majorie is the receptionist you should
have talks. They are always ready to listen to you about any need you have.
