Guests are pampered by the range of experiences, food and service on offer at this desert oasis. It's humbling to stay in a resort of this quality in the midst of such a beautiful natural place. Very pleasurable indeed!

Spectacular location. Peaceful, clean, well trained and friendly staff. Breakfast was outstanding. Horse riding is a must with that kind of sand view and well trained horses. Also the archery activitie was fun as it was my first time to try it.

I stayed at Qasr Al Sarab as part of a fam trip and I enjoyed every minute of my stay. The staff was super efficient and food is excellent! The dune bashing safari is a total must do and the spa facilities are fantastic! Lots to see and experience during your stay at Qasr Al Sarab! :-)

Boring experience, buggies, motorcycles, barbeque and camping basic desert activities were not offered by the hotel. I paid for 2 nights n I was bored really. There is no belly dancer even which was more disappointing.

It is expensive, but when you get there, you immediately realise why they are charging you so much. To get this experience, literally in the middle of nowhere, is staggering. The rooms were fabulously decorated, the bathroom wows you, and views of the dunes take your breath away. The personalised attention from the staff is awesome, the food is great...

Qasr Alsarab is a great desert resort. It's located 230 km from Abu Dhabi. Around 2:30 hours drive. Great experience in middle of desert. You explore the quietness of the nature. Away from city hectic schedule. It's a place to be away from busy life. There are different type of rooms from garden view, balcony, terrace room or even you...

I never knew barren sands could convey so much beauty! Spectacular resort set in the middle of nowhere (actually desert). An absolute must go. Some practical tips: 1) You can take a taxi from the airport. By meter it is close to 700 AED. But some might not agree hence it is open for negotiation. You can take their number...
