Worth every dollar at this luxury resort! Jun 18, 2011
Stayed here Sept 2010.

This resort is absolutely stunning, from the front entrance as you pull up to valet parking to the luxurious water features behind the resort. Although it is expensive per night, the facilities and activities inclusive are fantastic! Relax and sip cocktails pool side before midday while taking in the view of the desert just beyond or the magnificent architecture all around. Light lunch sitting at the pool side bar before a game of chess with the over sized chess pieces. Freshen up in your luxurious bathroom in the hotel room before sun down and take a short camel ride on the desert just metres from the resort. Watch the spectacular falcon show demonstrated by a local at sundown.

Move to the roof top bar for live arabic music and dinner followed by their delicious desert menu and shisha.

Resort staff are friendly and go out of their way to ensure your needs are taken care of.

You can do all these activities as a visitor as well, so if you have already booked elsewhere and want something to do all in one place, then give this resort a go!

Location not too far from Dubai city centre, about 25mins by car (if your driver is fast).

Enjoy if you get a chance to go!

worth the stay May 07, 2011
Very nice stay, if you like staying at deserts this is probably the best place, even if the Sahara is nicer but over there as far as I know there is no such class accomodation.

Service is at the top, activities also

Nice looking photos. This style is very remiscent of Moroccan riads. If you like places like this, you should definitely check out riads around Marrakech. Very cool (and similar) too!
