Bedouin Suite

There are 37 Bedouin Suites all of which are lavishly decorated with authentic and rare handcrafted Arabian furnishings, antiques and artefacts. There are thoughtful touches such as binoculars, an easel with art materials and a writing desk, should your creative instincts be inspired by the landscape and the wildlife you spot. Bedouin jars for water and dates can be found at most doorways and in the beds that line the tiny road between the suites; chests sit at the end of every bed and ornate Omani doors in heavy wood are framed in glass tables. Each private deck with sun loungers provides a secluded area for relaxing quietly or as an intimate setting for a personalised dining experience (simply select from the in-Suite menu and staff will appear to prepare your table for breakfast, lunch or dinner). The private infinity pool spills out into a never ending vista of dramatic desert views.

Royal Suite

The two Royal Suites combine some of the richest living experiences with an authentic ambience that is inspired by the many Arabian artefacts and antiques. A spacious lounge and two luxurious bedrooms, each with a custom-made super king-size bed and handcrafted furnishings, offer a relaxing experience in total comfort. The wide terrace with sun loungers, private deck dining area and sizeable pool present expansive views onto the open desert. Indigenous wildlife, such as gazelle or Arabian oryx, will frequently be seen grazing near the Suites. Together with exemplary facilities, attentive service and delightfully quiet surroundings, the Royal Suites offer an exclusive experience and a place of restful solace.

Emirates Suite

The Emirates Suite is set in a secluded spot away from the main part of the Resort, offering luxurious comfort and privacy in equal measures. Emirates Suites each have two large bedrooms, with custom-made super king-size beds and handcrafted furnishings.  A spacious lounge incorporates a dining area and outside there is a courtyard and deck around the pool for alfresco dining and relaxation. Residential quarters for your private staff and a kitchen of generous proportions allow a degree of autonomy away from the main Resort. The Emirates Suites provide a stylish haven to relax in the company of friends and family or for luxurious entertaining.
