Skiresort.info test report from 2012-08-25:
The Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort belongs to the Anantara group. This very beautiful and Arabian-style hotel is located about 2 hours drive from Abu Dhabi. In the middle of the Liwa desert. Even the location of this hotel is very luxurious fascinating. Huge yellow / red sand dunes up to 200m high are located around the hotel. The Arabic style, the very high standard throughout the facility and the excellent, attentive but unobtrusive service makes this hotel - in addition to its exceptional location - a highlight. The hotel has a beautifully landscaped pool with different depths, a sun-protected children's pool and a jacuzzi. The swim-in bar and free, well-chilled drinking water make the perfect day at the pool. At the pool bar you can sit in the water and you can enjoy drinks and food. There are different rooms, suites and villas, with or without private pool. Even the standard rooms have a very good size. The bathrooms are spacious and offer a very large bathtub to relax. To unwind, guests can also play tennis, explore the desert by jeep safari or a night walk with a guide, or visit the nearby camel farm and risking a ride on the ship of the desert. The Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort offers 4 restaurants:
- Al Wahar (the oasis) with Middle Eastern and international cuisine and the buffet,
- Suhail with international and French cuisine,
- Al-Ghadeer restaurant, beside the pool with light dishes and Mediterranean cuisine,
- The lobby bar of the Qasr al Sarab Desert Resort with local food and drink. All in all, a very luxurious hotel, with very high standards and very attentive service.
