Great break in the middle of the desert
sebastienrech

Great experience, ideal for a weekend break out of the city in the middle of the desert. Next time we will stay longer 1 night was too short. Service, staff and hotel itself was great, breakfast was out of this world

Magical desert resort

Spectacular location, beautiful building and excellent staff. The rooms are lovely with views over the Empty Quarter dunes and the pool is perfect. Great breakfast to. Overall, a unique experience - highly recommended

Most Amazing Resort
Curiosity632271

I took my daughter to Qasr Al Sarab on our way to the UK. It is the most amazing resort I’ve been in my life. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Even in the summer there are enough activities to occupy my 6-year-old daughter. The food is amazing as well!
Will definitely come back again!
