The lodge is great, the desert & the sand dunes surround it with the green is amazing, A lot of culture and historical places as Al Qasr - extremely interesting. The lodge rooms and the leaving areas gives the feeling "Back in time" definitely it is not the last time.....

I booked the hotel for 3 nights and they are great stay, the staff are friendly, and the gardens make the place very nice. Great tours operated by the hotel are good to discover the oasis, but if you have a private car will be great to see the full area around

I heard a lot about the place but all I heard was really not a match to the beauty of the place.
