This is an absolute gem of a hotel. I'm conflicted by the fact that it is closing for a renovation as I love the style, ambiance, decor, and spirit of the whole place. Of course I can see scope for modernisation, the air-con in one of our rooms was a bit patchy and the bathrooms needed a bit of TLC but its overall charm is irresistible. Location in the desert is brilliant. Such a refreshing change from the glass, high-rise city, dense traffic and mass population. The whole family loved the relaxed feel and the amazing pools. Staff were discreet and professional - they leave you to enjoy your holiday but are on hand if you need something. Sunset from the rooftop lounge was glorious. Food was superb wherever we ate and I highly recommend the Iftar feast at Al Hadeeradh - amazing experience, amazing food.

We had a wonderful stay, with friendly service. The staff is all super helpful and anything you request to the room comes quickly. A/C in the room is strong and cools the room nicely. There's a hot water kettle with teas/coffee. Breakfast buffet has many options, providing high chairs for kids. Dinner at Masala was delicious (north indian food). Dinner at Al Hadheerah is a not to miss experience - make sure you stay for the horse/camel show that happens around 9:15pm. Spa/sauna is small but you make a reservation and get the space to yourself for 1 hour. Only caveat - there is no elevator to reach the 2nd floor, so that was a little inconvenient with our baby. Property is well maintained though they are doing a full scale rennovation May 2022. We will definitely return again!
