What an amazing place!! It was amazing to sit in the lounge while we were checked in by our host. The venue and the services were exceptional.

The tranquility, beauty and unique location of Qasr al Sarab will provide an experience like none other. From sunrise to sunset the view of the desert is breathtaking.

Landscape of the pool because of the dunes, walking into the Rub al Khali early in the monring or for sundown, breakfast or dinner, waiting for the lenscleaning guy on the pool or for the one bringign the cold towels. I cannot remember which hotel can offer all that. This is why we stayed there not only once.
