Extraterrestrial experience. Wake up and see the endless horizonts . The sunset. While seeping a Dry Martini. I cannot believe the silence of the earth. The falcons activity is unforgettable and the sense of be out of the time surround you like a dream.

Qasr Al Sarab is a stunning resort in a unique setting. The staff are without fail the most helpful you could find.

We spent four days...
