Amazing property, beautiful pool and spa with gym is stunning! The place is very remote in the dunes, but makes it a great experience. Only thing I would say is the place is almost too big and too many rooms and felt empty...

Oasis in the desert worth staying!

The rooms, environment, service were excellent. An oasis in the middle of the desert is truly an unforgettable life experience! They also offer guests a free private falcon show. Check the timings with the reception. I regretted staying for only 1 night.
