Wildlife Encounters

The joy of staying at this resort is that you're in the middle of a spectacular nature reserve - a protected area of 1,235 acres. It's a place where you can connect and reflect with nature, whilst gaining an understanding about local life. Enjoy nature-drives and bird-watching walks, archery and falconry lessons, guided bike tours and stargazing - the skies here are truly amazing. Imagine a day following the tracks of foxes and geckos, the sight of a baby gazelle taking its first steps and the Arabian Oryx reclining in the sun. The desert reserve promises guests a rare opportunity to meet its wonderful wildlife.

The rolling sandbanks of the resort are a backdrop for romance, burnished bronze by day and creating mystery under the stars by night. Soak up the setting and dine amid the dunes, with a feast for two prepared by local Bedouin people. Another starry-eyed venue is the rooftop lounge and Moon Bar, a magical spot to watch sunsets and moonbeams over shisha and delectable food. If you want to treat your loved one to a special keepsake, a trip to the Pearl Farm is an excursion to note, or perhaps you fancy an exotic desert wedding, riding off into the sunset atop a camel - both can be arranged.
