Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara
The Rub'-al-Khali, or Empty Quarter, is the largest uninterrupted sand desert in the world. Spanning four Arab states, it has been traversed for centuries by nomads and fascinated explorers alike. Within the Empty Quarter lies the Liwa Desert of Abu Dhabi, and it is here that the magnificent Qasr Al Sarab resort rises like an ancient fortress out of the rolling ocher dunes. It may feel as if the clock has been turned back to the time when Bedouins roamed, trains were made up of camels, and the only date to be had on a Friday night was the fruit. A sense of enchantment and wonder envelopes the property, which houses thousands of ancient Bedouin artifacts and exemplary pieces of Arabian art. Modern conveniences have been carefully incorporated and blend seamlessly with the traditional Arab aesthetic and color scheme. For some excitement, guests can go dune-bashing in a 4x4 or, in true Bedouin fashion, on a camel!
