I didn’t get the w/e I planned for I got something better - the w/e I couldn’t plan for even if wanted to. Food - traditional home cooked food, not the excessive sugar / salt laden food of hotels but beautifully tasty Emirati food. For someone who dines out a lot, particularly Middle Eastern some of the food was still new to me. Location - it’s the empty quarter, it’s Liwa, if anyone has done their research than I think no further description is necessary. Surrounded by mikes of endless red, white and beige Sandy dunes and valleys. Absolutely beautiful. There are a number of swings about which are nice places to stop and relax and take I. The surroundings. “lobby” - there’s a beautiful fire place to sit in at night and appreciate the night sky you won’t get in the cities. Activities - their are falcons, constellation activity, camel feeding (adorable baby ones too), camel riding, dune experiences and a local fort and date factory experience. Would recommend all. Hospitality - second to none, the benefit of being an independent boutique owned by a local to the area and ran by an amazing hospitality; Salim and Brianne. We felt home from home, it felt like we spent the w/e with family, nothing was of limits and it was really nice to learn about the place, the history and some local / folk stories. Finishing touches - we celebrated our 2 yr and the touches weren’t something we usually get in a hotel that being a box of chocolates we got fireworks and a beautiful rose and pistachio cake; was fantastic. The only downside is I feel down for sharing this review because I want it to stay a hidden gem but I have to pay homage to the place and hosts. Will most certainly be back.…
Au cœur du désert de Liwa. Une expérience incroyable et un dépaysement total, quelle expérience fabuleuse. Nous sommes déconnectés de tout, la gentillesse de Brianne et Selem est à souligner. Toute l’équipe est chaleureuse et bienveillante. Les repas sont délicieux, nous avons dîner avec nos hôtes un excellent moment de partage. Concernant la tente, elle est absolument parfaite. Literie excellente, la décoration est si jolie. L’eau est à disposition tous les jours. Sur place les activités : dromadaires, buggy, coucher du soleil etc sont proposés. Merci encore, nous partons avec de beaux souvenirs.
Séjour exceptionnel, dépaysement total avec un personnel extraordinaire, Salem et Brianne, une gentillesse qui devrait être prise pour exemple dans tous les établissements, sur place plusieurs activités s’offrent à vous, il suffit de leur demander et votre vœux est aussitôt exaucé ! Merci encore 🧡 Steven
My dream to spend a journey in the desert became true in this amazing place. My family and I spent an unforgettable day starting with the buggy excursion, during which we followed also a desert fox (see enclosed pictures). Then we experienced the camels ride and we end the beautiful day with a typical local diner. I surely recommend this place to all my friends and I’m already planning the next visit. A big thanks for the hospitality and courtesy; we feel like being at home and not to be only customers. Giulio
this is outstanding property close to moren dunes . It has 10 tents of luxury. it is managed by brianne (she is from chicago and very knowledgeable person ) and salem who is a local from liwa are. it is experience of lifetime. despite having reviewed over 200 luxury hotels it is one the best i have stayed. they have over 20 camels and falcon. the rooms are luxury tents. the dunes around the property can be easily climbed for sunrise. breakfast lunch and dinner all guests have together . they can make veg food on request. it is must if you go to UAE.
