The best thing about this Hotel is the staffs are friendly and very helpful. The Hotel is spacious, with a lot of facility, including nice playground, big bird's cage. There's also access to the desert if you'd like to just walk on the sand. Nice view. However, not well maintained and most activities are not available during summer. So I...

Tucked away in a remote corner close to the Moreb dunes, the hotel offers a degree of quiet and solitude that few others can offer. Other than this, there's nothing to talk about. Rooms are decent and food is below par (but you do not have any other choice). The place is terribly pricey, especially during the annual dates festival....

Liwa Hotel is located closer to the Tal Moreeb dune in the town of Mezairaa. Situated on a hilltop the hotel has spectacular views of the desert dunes & surrounding area.

Great hotel from which to view the desert sights. Not the most modern establishment but clean and comfortable with the most amazing staff and great pool. Friendly and helpful to a tee.Great food and great scenery. If you find yourself in this part of the world this is the place to stay.

Stayed at the hotel for my toddler's first birthday in October but the place was surprisingly quiet yet very pricey. Due to its isolated location you are pretty much stuck with their own restaurant only. Food choice is limited and buffet dinner overly pricey for the variety. Staff was accommodating and cheerful. Good location if you want to head down...

On top of a hill, this hotel is a traditional style but well modernised. Very peaceful and stunning views. The closest hotel to the part of the "Empty Quarter" with one of the worlds largest sand dunes. Lovely pool area, ideal for families.

An Oasis of Tranquility. Our hotel is located at the most spectacular hilltop setting, surrounded by lush green gardens between natural wind-carved sand dunes in an untouched place. The white hotel with its traditional architectural design is truly the enchanted location of tranquility and one of the world’s most spectacular spots for travelers seeking a place to unwind, recharge and just relax.You will experience:• Dramatic nature scenery • Dry climate • Magical sun sets • A setting amongst the largest sand dunes in the World• True Heritage• UAE Culture with historic significance Nature and the Environment. The location of Liwa Hotel is definitely a unique, peaceful spot which plays host to a variety of native wild life species. A lucky visitor taking a walk just outside the hotel premises in the early hours of the morning might get a rare glimpse of a Falcon, desert fox, quail or an extremely elusive desert hare. The crisp, dry, clean air coupled with the songs of various types of bird species that has made the Liwa Hotel ground their home, make just waking up in the morning at any time of the year a truly magical moment. Liwa Hotel is committed to operating its activities in a complete environmentally friendly manner and it is the ultimate objective of the Hotel to expand and make its grounds a haven for all types of native animals and bird species, whether resident or migrant. History: The Liwa Oasis is the birth place of the ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. In 1793, the ruling family of the Abu Dhabi Emirate, Al Nahyan, moved their residence from Liwa to Abu Dhabi. The 39 villages that surround the oasis still provide a glimpse into the traditional life style of the inhabitants of the region. A historic fort which is located in one corner of the Oasis stands testimony to this bygone era. Whether you are a native, an expatriate living in UAE, or a tourist, surely The Liwa Hotel, the Oasis and the desert beyond will create an everlasting memory like no other. After all, this is the exact same landscape which captivated the famous British Explorer, Sir Wilfred Thesiger. ... more   less
