Luxury Stay $$$$. Perfect for: Couples, Romance, Adventure
If a luxury stay is what you are after, and the most Instagram-able, look no further than the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara.
Located in the “Empty Quarter”, the world’s largest sand desert (but still only 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi), this stunning hotel rises from the dunes to envelop you in your own Oasis. Driving through the gates transports you back to a time of ancient Arabic opulence but with all the modern conveniences you could ask for.
The facilities; including a crystal clear, chilled swimming pool complete with a swim up bar and swings, modern gym and pristine spa facilities are all spotlessly maintained. The food selection is vast and the rooms are large and accommodating. The service is all smiles and of the highest standard. Special Highlights: All rooms face towards the epic sunset, but it is well worth the early rise and the trek up the dune at the front of the hotel to watch the sunrise. Get your cameras at the ready!
During the cooler months the resort offers a myriad of different activities and sports, such as; camel and horse trekking, desert drives, fat biking and archery among others. Make sure to make use of the free sand-boards on offer as well if you’re feeling particularly adventurous. Make time for yourself and take a long bath in the Arabic sunken tubs in your own bedroom.. absolute bliss.
