Positive Reviews

Luxury in the heart of the desert

Its surrounds may be rustic, but this property is nothing but sumptuous. The resort's blend of Bedouin-inspired décor and sheer opulence is a real hit with guests, who feel that this villa-only property – where every unit has its very own pool – offers nothing but sheer luxury in the heart of the desert.

One for couples

Given its remote location, it's not all that surprising to find that this resort is very popular with couples. This property is a consistent top pick among couples, all of whom say that the resort offers a tranquil, ethereal ambience that makes it the perfect spot for a romantic getaway.

Great activities

The sheer array of activities here also proves to be impressive to guests, providing them with interesting and memorable ways to explore their desert surrounds. In addition to bikes rides, guests say that this resort's stable of horses and camels offer a delightfully different way to get around.

Negative Reviews

Dinner options mediocre

When it comes to food, guests say that the offerings at this property could do with some improving. The dinner options here – and especially those served up at the resort's Farmhouse restaurant – are routinely singled out as being disappointingly mediocre, especially compared to the rest of the resort.
