Experience the Liwa Desert like a Sultan at the Qasr Al Sarab

Endless stretches of golden sand, mesmerizing sunsets, and beautiful free form swimming pools. Nope, we’re not talking about the beach; we’re talking about the desert. And if vast stretches of hot sand don’t conjure up images of opulence and luxury, the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort is about to revolutionize your perception. Upon first glance, the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort might seem like a mirage with its stunning Arab décor, dramatic foreboding landscapes, and pristinely manicured grounds. But rest assured this desert oasis is one hundred percent real. The expansive resort boasts 206 rooms, villas, and suites, all tailor-made in order craft accommodations that are the pinnacle of both comfort and luxury.


Desert Fun 

Situated in the dramatic Liwa Desert, one of the largest uninterrupted stretches of sand dunes in the world, the Qasr Al Sarab is among the best hotels in all of the Middle East. The resort includes a vast swimming pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and three tennis courts, as well as several unique cuisine options, including Al Waha and Suhail. And if you have a thirst for adventure Qasr Al Sarab is fully prepared to quench it. Enjoy desert walks, dune bashing, falconry, and camel rides. It is the spa, however, that is perhaps the resort’s highlight.


Anantara is known for their world-renowned spas and the spa at the Qasr Al Sarab is certainly no exception. The spa itself is centered on Hammam healing baths, an ancient tradition designed to facilitate physical, emotional, and spiritual cleansing and healing. Practitioners blend traditional desert healing practices with more traditional spa techniques. The desert has never been so relaxing.
