Visitors won’t accidentally stumble across Qasr Al Sarab by Anantara, a desert resort modelled on a Bedouin-inspired village on the edge of the flame-hued dunes of the Empty Quarter. But it’s worth the 90-minute drive from Abu Dhabi to experience life the way it was hundreds of years ago, albeit with some modern luxuries added. There are 52 pool villas, with one, two or three bedrooms, each with a private pool and sun deck that overlooks the desert planes. For unparalleled seclusion and luxury, the majestic Royal Pavilion Pool Villas are secluded from the main resort, offering 130 square metres of indoor and outdoor space.
