the resort is surrounded by beautiful sand dunes and truly offers amazing experiences in the desert.nnThere are chargeable activities like camel/ horse riding, sand boarding which are child friendly. Simply walking on the sand dunes is also a great way to explore the resort.nnThe suites we booked has great view of the desert and oasis. It took us less than 5 min to walk down to the oasis and explore the sand dunes. The oasis is a great place to watch some gazelles

Great service, fabulous staff. Facilities are gorgeous but we had ac issue in the room (not working, blowing hot air) and the tub wouldn't fill up due to bad pressure. And ran out of hot water very fast. Shower was not a problem though. Dinner was absolutely beautiful. We had salmon, I cleaned the plate, it was truly wonderful. My partner had baby chicken which he really loved. The desert was not good. Black forest was frozen and impossibility sweet. Creme Brule was dense and way too sweet. Breakfast was excellent. Service throughout was outstanding. Definitely going back, next time we'll book early enough to get a villa. Location is just perfect and the view is out of this world.

An amazing resort. Loved the location which was very relaxing. Very friendly and professional staff. We had issues with some of the stuff in the room being outdated such as the AC. The restaurant service was not 5 star (such as paper napkins and butter in the original packing) but the staff tried their best. Would go back for sure

Very quiet, with all VIP facilities, excellent service, with exotic activities such as horse and camel riding, desert safari, ATV and zip line.nHeritage village accommodation are top of the range independent villas with mesmerizing endless desert, running sand as back yard, animals such as ghazal are roaming around the house, especially at nights.nOnly one central pool was available for us, close to reception and restaurant.nRestaurant has a amazing decoration, many big tables for small and big family, as well as couples. Food was OK, has a variety of different cousins and selection, especially kids menu is has many offerings for all taste.

Just perfect! Beautiful dunes surrounding luxurious tented facilities & an incredible infinity pool. Alongside this the level of service here was the best we have received during our multi-location UAE stay. The attentive staff seem to genuinely care about their guests wellbeing and go out of their way to ensure guests are enjoying their stay.nnSpecial mention to the wonderful restaurant manager Satish who ensured that our dietary requirements were met, in particular those of our children and that we were well looked after in the restaurant. The food was of high quality and the breakfasts were amazing, varied and very large!nnActivities guide Salik was both patient and encouraging, allowing us and the children plenty of opportunity to try new activities. As we booked with the hotel directly, two activities per room group were complimentary. We throughly enjoyed sand boarding, horse & camel riding.nnThe accommodation is spread out around the resort at a distance from the reception and pool area precluding walking in the heat of the day. Therefore the resort provides vehicles and drivers all of whom were attentive, helpful and friendly. Mohan was particularly kind.nMohammed the horse & camel guide was also brilliant with our kids when riding.nnI hope we can return!

If you're searching for paradise, it's here. The rooms are beautiful. The personal is very nice. The view from the pool, from the rooms, from everywhere is wonderful. One of my best vacations. Thank you Telal.

Delightful experience - PCR test upon arrival needed and the management didn’t put the information or give notification to the guest, so we need to drive for 1hr to the Al Ain City to get the PCR done - also there’s a maintenance going on which should be informed to the public, but overall its a good experience

Amazing experience being surrounded only by dunes and gazelles. We truly enjoyed and would like to come back again in winter time to enjoy various activities the hotel offers

The perfect desert retreat in Abu Dhabi, wonderful accomodation, equisite service, food and location, pefect desert sunsets and sunrise and natural wildlife in abudance. Beautiful pools and enough activities to keep even the most hardened thrillseeker entertained without spoiling the ambience of this beautiful resort. Probably the best place we have ever stayed and in our opinion worth every penny

Loved the whole experience! Great hospitality and amazing place. Gazelles could be spotted everywhere, even right outside our rooms. The oasis was so peaceful and was at a walking distance in the desert from our place of stay. Couldn't get enough of the beautiful pool and it's beautiful surroundings. We got 2 complimentary activities through website booking.nOne night was not enough and will definitely be coming back. Looking forward to experience the villa next time!

The only thing I regret about this resort is that I booked just one night. One should spend here three days at least to retreat and recharge oneself fully, preferably staying in one of the villas surrounded by sands with some rare palms and gazelles running just in few meters in front of your fireplace or stone bath next to panoramic window. Staying as a couple should be more enjoyable, but we were with children and still got the feeling of relax, while kids liked the facilities, food and activities so much that they did not want to leave and are still recalling our staying.

Such a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert. The suites were stunning with views that took my breath away.nThere are lots of animals, things to do and the staff are so helpful. The gym is fabulous and the pools are beautiful. The spa wasn't open so I can't comment. It would be easy to spend 4/5 days there. I loved it!

The reasons for 4 stars is the because the hotel still uses plastic water bottles and those too small ones which means a sustainability nightmare.nThe resort blends luxury with desert in the best possible way.. both the pools are amazing and the views are gorgeous in every direction. The rooms are decorated beautifully in local style.nThe breakfast also had a good selection of local and international food. The staff was equally amazing.nThe living quarters were situated further away from pools but they send a car in 3 minutes to take you between places so no issues there.nThey also offer great activities which are quite fun, I loved sand boarding, the guys were really helpful since it was my first time.nIt is definitely worth every penny, I just hope they start using refillable glass bottles like most other luxury brands.

What was supposed to be two days of relaxation turned out to be a disaster. I needed two days to get away from my day to day life and just relax and come home recharged, however not only could I not relaxed I went home extremely annoyed and disappointed with the fact that I paid so much money for a place that shouldn't even be the fraction of what I paid! The whole place was infested with flies it was so bad that I couldn't even leave my room. Then the flies entered my room and I was at a loss. Don't get me wrong the staff tried their best to make me more comfortable however, the issue was just unsolvable. I had to check out half a day early due to all the flies and when I demanded at least a part refund manager would not accept and putting my ordeal down to nature. I understand there are flies in nature but this was an abnormal situation and absolutely unbearable. This was not your average amount of flies. I'm talking 100s and because of the pest control around the building the flies would be around you and dying around you! It was insane. So if you're looking for somewhere to relax and to enjoy the beautiful nature of the UAE this isn't a place I would recommend especially given the fact that prices are almost quadruple to most 5 star resorts with far more amenities.nI have to mention the staff were friendly and kind and that my issue wasn't with them at all.
