Luxury desert escapism & decadent pool villas
In the sublime desert sand of eco-rich Wadi Khadeja, this exclusive all-pool villa resort stands like a majestic Arabian fortress with all the characteristic hallmarks of luxury including a nature reserve, falconry centre and an exquisite spa. Treat yourself to the Banyan Tree Al Wadi after your beach stay. Desert elegance at its best.
We went to this resort for our honeymoon and it was immense! I have never had such amazing accommodation anywhere with your own private large pool to boot! Set in the Desert you truly get the feeling of Arabia with desert animals in view on the dunes and the most spectacular spa with a Rainforest Experience which comes highly recommended. Golf buggies transport you from your villa around the resort in the desert heat and there are a great choice of restaurants and excursions. You'll feel like an Arabian King and Queen here - what a gem!
