Guests can choose from a selection of luxurious rooms, suites and villas, each featuring Arabic décor combined with chic splendour.

In addition to these fantastic amenities, the one-, two- and three-bedroom villas benefit from private plunge pools, outdoor showers, and personalised butler service.

Dining delights

Four exceptional restaurants are on offer at this sumptuous resort. At Suhail, sample the very best steaks before enjoying a glass of wine or two on the fabulous rooftop terrace. Ghadeer offers mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine and Al Waha serves up a selection of delectable international dishes from live cooking stations. Alternatively, select from a vast range of irresistible sweet treats at Al Liwan, including scrumptious pastries and Liwa dates.

Exhilarating activities

Indulge in some ‘you time’ at the resort’s splendid Anantara Spa. Relax and rejuvenate with a selection of traditional Arabian treatments including scrubs, wraps and the unique exfoliation experience known as Moroccan hammam.

Some of the resort’s other fabulous facilities include a freeform swimming pool and three floodlit tennis courts. Treat yourself to a memorable yoga session surrounded by striking desert landscape or familiarise yourself with Emirati cuisine with one of the resort’s tailored cookery classes.

Make the most of your remarkable surroundings with a range of activities designed specifically for the desert. Embark on a memorable camel trek or experience the exhilarating thrill of dune bashing.
