An Arabian fortress of decadent pool villas for luxury desert escapism.
This majestic resort has all the hallmarks of luxury – a haven of tranquillity and world-class service – set within a nature reserve in Wadi Khadeeja. Facilities include a falconry deck and stables where you can saddle up and head into the dunes on horseback, passing Arabian oryx and gazelle as you go. A dedicated ‘Experience Concierge’ is on hand to create itineraries that are tailored to you.
Dining is an occasion here, as unforgettable locations fuse with the finest locally sourced cuisine. Whether you’re dining beneath a blanket of stars in the desert on dishes created by a private chef, or trying Moroccan cuisine and Spanish tapas at Moorish, your tastebuds are sure to be indulged. State-of-the-art spa facilities include the Rainforest Spa, a hydrothermal sanctuary with steamrooms, experience showers and a vitality pool.
The spacious Al Rimal Pool Villas have a private sundeck and swimming pool, while the larger Al Khaimah Tented Pool Villas are decorated with Bedouin-style furnishings. Recently refurbished, each villa is decorated to lavish standards and invites utter escapism. The Al Sahari Tented Pool Villas are exclusive and intimate, finished with canopied ceilings and set to dramatic desert views.
