Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara

A truly unique experience. Perfect for anyone tired of the regular high-end city stay and wants a little desert adventure with their luxury. Live out your Lawrence of Arabia fantasy – just be finished in time for your hot stone massage.

Stay at Qasr Al Sarab

Cross a lantern-lined bridge, pass through an arched gateway and enter one of the world’s most spellbinding resorts. You arrived at Qasr Al Sarab, where traditional Bedouin village aesthetic meets high-end luxury. Where you can dine on gourmet cuisine under an endless blanket of stars. Where you can walk through the dunes with a falcon on your arm.Open your curtains to sunrise over an endless sea of sand, hundreds of miles of red and orange rolling in all directions. These are the dunes of Rub Al Khali, the world's largest uninterrupted sand desert. They are yours to explore after your gourmet breakfast. Do it on foot with a Saluki desert dog at your heel, or behind the wheel of a dune buggy. Welcome to your playground for the remainder of your stay.


Remote. Really remote. A very worthwhile 74-mile drive from Abu Dhabi airport - approximately 2 hours. The wait is worth it for the dramatic location surrounded on all sides by a sea of sand.


140 guest rooms, 14 suites and 42 villas set over a very opulent 19-acre resort. If you want a dune view opt for the Deluxe Balcony room over the Deluxe Garden. If you want a private pool go with one of the villas.
