The 20th Annual World Travel Awards (WTA) ceremony held at Le Meridien Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai, has once again voted Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara as the Leading Desert Resort in the UAE.
Qasr Al Sarab has been winning the title of Middle East’s Leading Desert Resort for 3 consecutive years since 2010. WTA is the biggest, most comprehensive and prestigious awards program in the travel industry worldwide. Hence, being awarded the WTA brand allows Qasr Al Sarab to set benchmark to which all others aspire as it is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality.
Sitting atop a crescent-shaped dune in one of the most astonishing landscapes of the Liwa Desert in the Empty Quarter, Qasr Al Sarab offers 154 rooms, 42 villas and 10 royal villas resembling majestic palaces with spacious living and dining areas, private pools and outdoor terraces. The resort is a haven of comfort and pure extravagance with desert views, with interiors of warm, earthy hues, which are accented by locally hand crafted furnishings immersed in the splendid heritage of an ancient fortress.
Born from a vision of UAE’s late leader, Qasr Al Sarab is Abu Dhabi’s landmark where emirates tradition, heritage, origins, hospitality and luxury smoothly blends into its pristine surrounding environment in a destination rich in history with settlements dating back to 7, 000 years. The resort has a wide range of excursions that reflect the region’s ancient cultural traditions bringing back the memories of desert travelers through the early morning desert walk on the dunes, the ride on a camel over sun soaked dunes as a timeless landscape unfolds, falcon show in an awesome scenery and many more that reflects a holistic experience that truly manifests the Arabian culture
Mr. Wael Soueid, General Manager of Qasr Al Sarab, comments, “Winning the title in the category of Leading Desert Resort is a confirmation of achievement as to what we do for our guests at the resort because we are passionate about every guest leaving with an amazing story. We have cumulated years of success since the opening and we look forward to the years ahead and to surpass our own efforts.”
