My sister and I stayed one night at the Al Sahel Villa. It was amazing! Animals right outside our back door. It was everything I expected and more from looking at pictures and reviews! We took a safari tour with Owen who gave us a wonderful experience seeing the wildlife on the island. The food and service was excellent, as was all the staff! My only disappointment was that we were only able to stay one night! This is a definite must see if you are in the UAE!

Amazing slice of Africa in the Desert!
Amazingly re-created the feel of Africa, love the rooms with the thatched roofs, the small splash pool, which you can even request a change in temperature. The staff were amazing, all of them!
