    This lovely resort is so other worldly that it was actually used in a recent Star Wars film. The terrain here is gorgeous but the real lure is the property itself. Relax in your plunge pool as Arabian oryx saunter by and stop for a drink.

    In addition to the in-room wild life viewing, the resort has a variety of activities -- falconry, camel riding, and desert safaris using the in-house fleet of 4WDs. All were top-notch and we went into the desert to sip champagne at sunset every evening during our stay.

    To avoid the heat, activities are scheduled for very early a.m. This means you will have plenty of time to lounge and relax at your tented villa.

    We weren't thrilled with the food -- good quality but lacking local influence. The property has changed ownership since our stay so fingers crossed that the menu has improved.

    A very special place. Expensive but almost reasonable if you've just spent a few nights at the Burj Al Arab.

    It is a nice place for couples the suit has a private swimming pool which looks over the desert and no one can see you but you can enjoy seeing the Ghazals..
    The breakfast is fine the accessories and things in rooms are very good
    I had a nice night there
    I recommended to go to this resort
    As an complementary There are free activities like sky diving, desert drive, Camel riding, hours ridding .....etc

    The rooms have endless touches of class and quality with every effort made to make your stay personal. The food, both variety and quality sets the standard.

    For great food and service, plus a massage to die for, this is the place to be.
