We truly enjoyed the magic of its candlelit restaurants, the sunsets framed in wonderful Arab architecture and of course the perfect hospitality across the board just gifted us...

This beautiful resort is located in the middle of the desert, a true escape from the big cities and the rush! All beautifully decorated, to the smallest details, it looks like a palace.
