My daughter and I enjoyed a relaxing three night stay here. We stayed in a Al Bahar Tented Beach Pool Villa. Our room and gardens were enormous and very secluded which was lovely. We could step out of our gardens right on to the beach. Food was very good and we enjoyed a very relaxing treatment in the spa.

While staying at the sister Al Wadi Desert Hotel we took advantage of an included trip to the beach resort 20 minutes away. It was beautiful, the staff were very attentive but we were very glad that we had chosen to stay in the desert. It was certainly not as peaceful or as stunning as the desert.
