I don't often write reviews but I felt really compelled to do so after an outstanding experience this weekend. Our safari company had let us down which meant that we had 12 people including young children stranded in the Liwa desert without anywhere to stay. An incredible helpful and accommodating manager, Mazen, moved mountains for us despite the fact that... More

Located in the Empty Quarter so you are away from everything. Stars are amazing at night. Visited the resort on holiday weekend. Our room was comfortable and well attended to by housekeeping staff. Food was a mixed bag. Pool area was nice. Lots of kids. Overall priced at a 5 * resort but it never really gets there from either... More

This hotel is very beautiful and the staff is very thoughtful. We loved our trip here and would recommend it. We felt like we stepped into another world. The sunset camel ride was fantastic and all of our children age 22, 15, and 10 really enjoyed it.

There's not really anything negative to review about this beauty. Fortresslike architecture in the middle of a vast desert. My suite was very spacious and decorated with an Arabian flair. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere but fun things to do if you're in the mood (falconry show, camel trekking etc.) The complimentary breakfast buffet is sumptuous . I would have... More

One of the best places I've been so far. All environment are breath-taking and it's good either for couples and families. Staff are very kind and always available when needed. Activities choices are quiet good but reaching the dune for the sunset is a must
