Far away from the noisy city of Abu Dhabi it is a place to relax and enjoy. Fun selection of acitivities included in the price for Villas. The staff is very well trained and extremely nice and helpful. Quality of food is extraordinary. One or two more restaurants would be fine to enlarge the variety. Wifi was unfortunately not very...

This Hotel set in the Liwa desert of Abu Dhabi has become my absolute favorite. With the ocean of powder soft sand you really feel like you have woken up in the animation Aladdin. The attention to detail is out of this world. Activities are plenty for those wishing to spend more than 3 nights. The night sky is breathtaking...

We stayed as a family last year following Eid. The hotel had been full however throughout our stay the guest count was between 29 and 56!! This meant that buffet meals at night weren't available and we had only two restaurants to choose from. The food was ok, but not out of the ordinary. We had the swimming pool to...

This place will show you another dimension of location, standards and service! We thought it is enough to go for just two nights, but we were wrong. If you go, I recommend staying longer.
