Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara
Time Out Says
This is the place where vacationers have the choice of feeling like a true desert explorer, with its list of outdoor-based activities to do, or just take the more chilled-out option and relax thanks to the resort’s signature spa treatments.
Travellers looking for a little adventure can try camel trekking and horse riding through the endless sand dunes. Active guests can also try archery, desert walking, dune bashing, watching falconry shows, biking – the list goes on.
After something a little more sedate? Qasr Al Sarab has paid a lot of attention to its spa experience, so get ready for some much-needed refreshment. The spa includes four couples’ treatment suites, a traditional Moroccan hamman and an ice room. Along with its large pool and swim-up bar, you’d almost forget you were in the middle of the desert (but a quick peek around you will remind you soon enough).
The décor of its 154 rooms and 52 villas is brimming with rich colours and beautifully designed fabrics giving off rustic Arabian vibes.
Along with its exquisite Middle Eastern cuisine, which can be devoured under a starry night sky with its Bedouin camp-style dining, this is a five-star desert hotel experience at its best.
