Excellent4.0 / 5
Very nice experience in a lovely and relaxing setting. Spa facilities were particularly nice. One comment - I was there a year ago and the prices seem to have gone up considerably. You may be pricing yourselves out of the market soon - I would have to think more carefully about a return visit based solely on the prince.

Good, be interesting to see what new owners change
Good overall. Service in Al Waha restaurant (main one) was slow, time taken to get menu, bread basket etc even when not that busy but food was decent portions and flavour once it arrived. Staff very friendly. I believe this is becoming a Ritz Carlton shortly so maybe things are winding down as banyan tree which might explain why some room fittings like broken curtain strings, cracked toilet seat, silver paint coming off bathtub plug have not been attended to at present. I think the sister beach resort is closing for 6 months of renovations next month by Ritz. Bikes were good addition as quite a distance to get around the resort, great oryx and wildlife roaming around. Less welcome wildlife was the fly problem, i must have had 50 or so on the pool deck, so annoying, they should issue each room with these electric tennis racket swatters but guess is because of the horse stables, camel and other wildlife around. Privacy could be improved around the pools, there is evidence there used to be material stretched between them but these have now gone from most so is a short wall left now allowing neighbours to look in if they tiptoe. But overall we had a great time.

Very special, luxury resort in the desert
Very special setting in the desert, excellent room size and setup, nice premises, very helpful and knowledgable staff at the stables and falconry, very good food and cocktails, amazing rainforest spa and one of the best massage spas. Poor cart service to go to main building or back to your room spoiled an otherwise great experience
