Peaceful desert resort. All Staff very friendly, helpful, and professional. edwina concierge was remarkable.

One of the best resorts I’ve ever visited.
The service was some of the best I’ve ever experienced! We’re not ones to demand many extras, but when we did ask for something it was a prompt YES and exceeded what we requested. But then the king of UAE has a villa here so what do you expect. All four adults said we’ve never realized the desert could be so beautiful. We had great food. The room was impressive. Each day at the pool our Sunshine Butler came around to clean our sunglasses, hand out cool washcloths, and give us cucumbers for our eyes. When he realized after the first day we preferred to be in the shade, he would come around and adjust our umbrella, without being asked, throughout the day.

Perfect Desert Oasis!
The resort is impeccable. The service is that you expect of a 5 star property. It is a bit isolated in the desert, but that is something I expected going into the stay. My husband and I joked that it is an adult Disneyland, as you feel like you're living in Jasmine's castle! We had a perfect stay and the activities, dining and spa were all top notch!
