We had a fantastic 3 nights here; a true 5* experience from Axel and his staff, who are without exception a credit to themselves the hotel and Anantara. The drive from the main road to the hotel itself is amazing, but prepare to be amazed even more when you arrive. The welcome was genuine and personal, with a cool towel and a yoghurt and date drink. Check in was efficient and effective without the 'paper pushing' and inputting data into a computer - a real bonus to start. We were then taken to our room by buggy and what a delight, spacious, clean, comfortable, a small terrace with garden and a fantastic view.The room had everything you could ask for and short walk around some impressive sand dunes to the main building - you can get a buggy but we preferred the walk into the courtyard where there was always someone to pen the door with a warm greeting. the only sound was from the water features. For a relatively large property it was easy to navigate and there was always someone to help for whatever reason. We found everything we needed with ease. Although we were there in the low season, perhaps a bonus in itself as there were only a few people staying, we had a very personalised experience; the staff within hours knew us, greeted us by name and couldn't do enough. Our first visit was to the pool, where we provided with a plentiful supply of water in ice buckets and cold towels by Faisil and Javeed on a regular basis. Their attentiveness cannot be faulted and neither can that of the other pool/bar staff. The pool was our regular stop from about 11.00 each day until late afternoon with exceptional service throughout. You need to be there to really experience it. Breakfast was treat, with a huge variety of options from which nobody could leave unsatisfied from quality, quantity or variety with a couple of unusual (for us anyway) local options which we tried and loved. Again you need to experience it to get the true idea. Service was again exceptional and a special thank you to Syed for his service and aiming to go the 'extra mile'. He deserves to be highly commended. The only downside to breakfast was witnessing a mainland Chinese family literally filling their rucksack with food to take away ... - a bit of a shame as they only needed to ask. We went to Suhail for evening cocktails where we met Somen, who also deserves special thanks and commendation; pleasant, professional and knowledgeable; expertly prepared cocktails with service to match; with olives, nuts an canapes, real 5* service and incredible value. We had cocktails at Suhail every night and ate in the restaurant twice. A real fine dining experience in terms of quality of food and service. We haven't experienced this level of food quality and service for some considerable time and again thanks to Somen and the head chef who took the time to talk to us on a professional and personal basis.If you go to Qasr Al Sarab, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to have dinner at Suhail - you won't regret it. On the terrace you have a view of a water hole and on both evenings we saw Sand Gazelles - the first time at a distance and the second time we took binoculars - saw the sand Gazelle running across the desert and drinking at the waterhole! For our last night we wanted to try the 'Dining by Design' in the desert. Unfortunately the reception staff advised that it wouldn't be advisable because of the heat. We were disappointed but understood the basis on which the advice was given - maybe another time ... We opted for the pool restaurant and had grilled Halumi followed by the seafood platter - a more casual dining experience but nevertheless good quality and quantity of food and good service. And so, our fantastic experience came to an end with a quick and efficient check out and a car from the hotel to the airport; a smooth and comfortable journey. We hope to return and would highly recommend Qasr Al Sarab.

I visited to the resort qasr al sarab with my family for two nights and three days.. our stay was nothing less than mesmerising even in the scorching heat.. It took us nearly 2 hours to reach the resort from Abu Dhabi airport. The sand dunes spread all along our way were truly breathtaking as it was my first visit to any desert. The drive after reaching Hamim was so beautiful, it was nature at its best. As we reached the resort, we were warmly welcomed with their traditional drink which was made of dates and yogurt.. and then after a few formalities we were escorted to our rooms. We booked the basic garden view rooms. And I must tell you it was worth each n every penny we paid. Even though the resort was surrounded by desert till our eyes could reach but it was impeccably maintained. The pool was also well maintained n the view we got while swimming was just magic. In the middle of dunes we were swimming in a pool, it's nothing less than a dream. The next day we went for desert safari which was arranged by the resort (roughly 300AED without taxes per person) and the team was very friendly n welcoming. There were two more cars along with ours so that all the groups felt safe. Our driver Mr Shalika was wonderful n made all efforts to make our ride memorable for us. If you visit qasr al sarab the desert safari is something which you should not miss. This type of resort was something I had never even imagined. A dream come true! Thanks to one n all at the resort to make my trip so memorable!! 😍❤️

Outstanding stay in Qasr Al Sarab for our large group. An oasis after a 2 hour drive from Abu Dhabi. Hidden in huge Rub Al Khali sand desert the hotel has an exceptional location. Stunning view on the landscape. Unique contrast between wild nature and a luxury resort looking like a ksar. Luxury but authenticity and tradition for QAS decor and service. Cozy rooms in the typical villas. Excellent food in the restaurants and also at night at the foot of the sand dunes. Amazing experience

It's simply a stunning resort, something you could imagine being pulled straight from the pages of an Arabian tale. Luxurious, chic, stunning, all set with that typical Arabian style that makes the whole setting simply breathtaking. The staff are incredible. Courteous and always willing to do all the little extra things that will inevitably make your stay truly memorable. Great facilities, an excellent gym, restaurants + bar, fantastic spa and an ok business centre
