5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

the resort is like oasis in the middle of the desert with big swimming pool in the middle of the resort overlooking the desert. Masala and Al Dheerah serve delicious Indian and Arabic BBQ food respectively. Al Dheerah was the highlight of our stay, a large Open air BBQ restaurant with many stage shows through out the evening with fireworks late at night. it's a perfect getaway for the families and couples. there is kids club where you can leave your children while you enjoy a drink at the pool bar or Sheeha at the roof top restaurant which has amazing Sunset views. the room was clean and beautiful and staff was very friendly. there is free Camel and pony ride for children and you can also book desert safari from the hotel.

Disappointed that the famous restaurant Al Hadheerah was closed for a private function. Room felt cramped and dark. Kids enjoyed 1-min camel ride. Falconry class was fun. Breakfast buffet was so-so.
