Exquisite luxury in the middle of the desert
Activity adventure | City | Desert | Food & wine | Spa
The otherworldly sand dunes of Abu Dhabi are the spectacular setting for this fortress-inspired desert resort, where guests stay in true palatial luxury. Most rooms offer garden terraces and uninterrupted views of the desert valleys but, for an extra-special experience, upgrade to a one, two, or three bedroomed villa to enjoy private plunge pools and sun decks.
A wonderful range of dining options ensure everyone is catered for, with the spectacular Bedouin camp style dining area a particularly special choice. Head to the rooftop lounge terrace Suhail for such delights as Indonesian duck tortellini, blue crab and grilled black cod, or choose to dine in the middle of the dunes surrounded by lanterns and the star-studded sky for the ultimate romantic evening.
The wonderful pool and tennis courts are great for whiling away the hours, and over in the spa there’s four luxurious couple treatment suites, a traditional Moroccan hammam, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, sauna and even an ice room. Days are also spent, naturally, exploring the orange hills that lie just outside, with the hotel offering a fantastic range of desert experiences, from desert drives and yoga to exhilarating fat biking and sand boarding excursions. Sunset horse riding and camel trekking make for a romantic evening, or discover Abu Dhabi with a cultural tour where you’ll explore the world third largest mosque, as well as ancient villages and forts.
