We have had a fantastic stay in this beautiful resort in the desert and we will definitely return and stay with them again.
The hotel location is just beautiful as most reviews say. Apart from the great environment, the hotel premises itself is beautifully designed with fountains, palm trees & flowers everywhere. And I truly love the huge teapots & gorgeous lamps as decorations.
We stayed in a Terrace Room and the room is spacious with good lighting system, touch-screen phones, LCD TV with TV games option for kids and even a Nespresso machine. Internet connection speed is unexpectedly fast. The bathroom is huge and well designed. The view of the room & terrace of course is fantastic. The desert view is stunning and it keeps changing throughout the day.
What makes this hotel stand out is its great team of staff. Each of them makes you feel welcomed everywhere. The buggy service is efficient and no matter how often we ask for their pick up, they come with a welcome smile. The staff at the Al Waha Restaurant is particularly attentive & friendly. They are very friendly to little guests and making them feel special.
The buffet at Al Waha is quite good but as an Asian, I do recommend to have more items of Asia favor like Thai or Chinese. Food at the Poolside restaurant is great with a lovely setting. Room service is efficient and the portion & quality is unexpectedly great.
About hotel facilities, the kid’s club is wonderful. There are Wii & Playstation for older kids. And a variety of toys for younger ones. The spa facility is good with professional therapists and a lovely setting with again desert view treatment rooms. The tour activities available at the hotel is well organized. There is a big souvenir shop but honestly there are not many to choose from. If you play tennis, do book the tennis court located at the other end of the hotel. It’s a beautiful location that you can see different areas of sand dunes. Staff at the tennis court is great too!
To sum up, it’s one of the most pleasant hotels we’ve ever stayed. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to have desert experience while indulging in the luxury at the same time. And it’s good for both travelers who want to have romance with their love one and for families with kids too.
This Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara deserves to be No. 1 and I'm looking forward to that.
