Just 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi or a 50-minute helicopter ride from downtown Abu Dhabi, and you’ll find yourself in a desert oasis like no other – Qasr Al Sarab by Anantara.

Here you can experience Arabia in the Empty Quarter, the world’s largest sand desert.  This Liwa desert 5-star resort offers guests luxury in the middle of nowhere.

“The Qasr Al Sarab by Anantara Resort rises up from flame-coloured dunes like a mirage, inviting adventure in the most luxurious of styles. Traverse the Rub’ al Khali by camelback. Dine under desert skies. Unwind with hammam and desert rose rituals at our relaxing Abu Dhabi resort,” shares Verena Franke at Qasr Al Sarab by Anantara.
