Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort

Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara was my second Anantara resort in UAE and after my experience in Desert Islands I arrived with high expectations.

Uniquely located in the largest uninterrupted dunes desert, Qasr Al Sarab is an amazingly beautiful property with 206 units (rooms&villas). My experience started when I arrived and had a welcome drink and towel before being escorted to my villa. The villas are absolutely amazing and among the best and unique accommodation I’ve seen anywhere in the world. There are only 29 one bedroom villas, but I stayed in one of them for my night here. It had a great design and featured comfortable bed, kitchen, living room, flatscreen Tv, beautiful bathroom and a private swimming pool. I felt sad leaving in the morning as the villas have a rare wow factors you hardly get as an experienced traveller that have seen many rooms.

While the villas were world class, I didn’t know what to expect with the service. With 206 units, it’s quite bigger than Desert Islands 64 rooms and not as personalised. The staff have a great attitude and are very professional. The service was better and more professional here, while Desert felt more homely and private. The facilities was great as well, especially their beautiful spa which is a must to experience during your stay. The breakfast often disappoints me in hotels, but not here, and the dinner buffet had many local items you most probably haven’t tasted before, and Anantara has definitely. Created another unique experience.

To sum up. It’s a stunning property with amazing villas and great service. It’s well-managed by Anantara, and you can count on a unique experience with professional service.

My opinion: Great+ experience.
