From Abu Dhabi, a lone road leads inland through undulating sand dunes whose hues of beige, rose and red shift throughout the day. You’ve entered a breathtaking landscape known as Rub al Khali, or the Empty Quarter, the largest continuous sand desert in the world. After a few hours, the equally breathtaking Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara suddenly appears. It resembles a fort, with traditional Arab elements incorporated into the design. The resort hosts falcon shows and can arrange camel rides and dune walks. In short, staying here is an unforgettable way to experience both the traditions of the UAE and its remarkable sense of style and hospitality.
