My girlfriend surprised me to a night at the Anantara Qasr Al Sarab for my birthday, and I must say, I was not at all disappointed. All the way from the lovely drive up to the hotel through to check out I was taken care of by caring staff members and a breathtaking resort experience. It's in the same category as the Banyan Tree Al Wadi and Al Maha Desert Resort - except the really long drive up from Dubai to the Liwa Desert somehow adds to the experience.
The desert view from the deluxe room is overwhelming and the characteristics of the arabian desert flow into the rooms aesthetics. I have to note that the bathroom is AMAZING!
During my visit, the attractive food and beverage outlets were closed hence I didn't have a great F&B experience, the pool bar was also closed as it was during the Holy Month of Ramadan. However, the staff recognized it was my birthday through my loyalty membership and took the initiative to deliver a special cake at midnight - that was the cherry on top.
Do not miss out on the archery experience! Unfortunately I did not indulge in any other activities to comment.
Would I return? Yes yes yes.
