A must experience at least once in your life!!!
We had a wonderful stay. Gorgeous place & resort!!! Everyone (the staff) was very accommodating and willing to please. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there and the Dinner by Design was an incredible experience. Our waiter did an outstanding job at serving us and making the evening very special with a camp fire and our very own bedouin style table set up, and provided blankets when it got cool. The special anniversary cake was very nice too. The view from our terrace of the desert and dunes was amazing!! Stunning sunsets, great restaurants & food, awesome activities, and the spa too was amazing! We absolutely LOVED this beautiful resort and all its Arabian decor. I will definitely come back if ever again in Abu Dhabi. If your flight is making a stopover through Abu Dhabi. Take advantage of it and plan a stay at Qasr Al Sarab anywhere from 2-4 days. Highly recommend it!

Amazing desert getaway!
Stunning oasis (literally)and well worth the side trip from Abu Dhabi (it's about a 2 hour drive from the airport). The staff are fantastic and extremely helpful and considerate. The activities department are great and very knowledgeable. Camel riding is novel, but I suggest the horseback riding if you really want to have a fantastic desert experience. HIGHLY recommend the dinner in the desert (not "dine by design" which sounds nice but is just in front of the hotel). You are driven about 30 minutes out to a beautiful area on top of all the sand dunes for a spectacular dinner all alone while you watch the sunset. Make sure to order champagne and get there at least an hour before the sunset.

Desert Paradise
The resort is an absolute stunner, including staff, location, facilities and camels are just special cuties providing an additional thrill to the experience. It is definitely worth to stay at Liwa and let yourself indulge in the true desert experience: go on a camel trek at dusk and enjoy the special sunset treat that is offered: arabic coffee and dates on the dunes while enjoying the view. The Al Falaj dinner experience feels very authentic, the pool area is just a true paradise for relaxation, the gym is well equipped and the staff is extremely attentive & friendly in a relaxed way at the same time. Do not miss out on climbing a dune for sunrise! Camel milk is a must try too which is served as welcome drink, and with breakfast,too. Definitely coming back again to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this wonderful resort!

Absolutely Amazing!
We've enjoyed every minute of our stay, the room, service, amazing location, the hotel staff was so polite and helpful. They pay attention to small detail, bottle of water when you arrive at the pool, your towel gets carried to your sunbed and opened for you, we felt very spoiled, wish we could stay longer!

Excellent4.0 / 5
The surroundings are majestic and that's what makes the hotel so charming. You can walk off to the sand dunes from the hotel. The privacy of the rooms makes it extra special. The bathroom vent didn't work so it was stuffy and a bit smelly. The AC didn't work all night so it was unbearably hot; but technician came soon after we notified the reception. Some of the managerial staff was a bit standoffish but overall a great experience.
