Property Highlights:+

A dedicated Ritz Kids' club, for children aged 4 years and over, provides a range of exciting and educational activities - including archery, falconry, pony rides, games, stories under stars and arts and crafts. A stay in the desert reserve also offers an intriguing insight into a faraway land, introducing children to fantastic wonders of nature and local culture plus traditions. They'll love the camel rides, bird-watching tours and visits to the resort's wildlife rehabilitation centre, where little guests can help care for injured creatures. Extraordinary adventures to tell friends about at home!

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.

Spa & Wellness

The Ritz-Carlton Spa features four Royal Pavilions and six Deluxe Pavilions with relaxation area and Hydro-thermal experience. There are ten treatment pavilions, an indoor swimming pool, a Vitality pool, Hammam and state-of-the-art hydrothermal circuit known as The Rainforest. Guests can also enjoy a beauty salon, boutique, yoga pavilion and state-of-the-art gymnasium with Techno Gym equipment.
