This impressive resort lies in the Liwa Desert of the Empty Quarter, one of the world’s largest unbroken expanses of desert measuring over 1,000 kilometres long and 500 kilometres wide. Seclusion is tempered with a sense of adventure, the hotel being designed in the style of an Arabian fortress where rooms are adorned with Arabic décor. Anantara suites have private patios with sunloungers; family villas come complete with plunge pools and personal butler service. Feast on barbecues and mezzeh amidst the dunes at the tented Al Falaj, or dine at the rooftop grill on the finest beef accompanied by one of 120 labels from the award-winning wine cellar. Ghadeer is the place for romantic evening dining with its shisha lounge; for special celebrations your butler can arrange private barbecues in your villa. Treatment rooms in the Anantara Spa are arranged around a central Moroccan Hammam healing bath, while those seeking a more thrilling experience can enjoy a range of traditional activities: join a Bedouin-style camel trek through the surrounding valleys with the locals that grew up there (4x4s are also available), go dune bashing, horse riding or simply feast on Arabian delicacies around a campfire.
