The Experience


Set against the dramatic landscape of The Empty Quarter – the world’s largest stretch of uninterrupted sand desert, the exclusive collection of Royal Pavilion Villas, is the epitome of luxury, offering stays of understated sophistication and Arabian elegance. Guests seeking a truly bespoke getaway and seclusion will create lasting memories at this unique Arabian retreat.

With a landscape, best described as mystical and from story books, explore the wonder of the majestic desert dunes by camel, experience the adrenalin rush of dune bashing by 4×4 or awaken early morning for a sunrise desert walk and learn how to make the valley beneath come alive with the sounds of the dunes singing.

Take time to truly relax. Soak in a sublime rose scented bath to your favourite melodies or float in your private pool admiring the views. The choice is yours.

Decadent Arabian décor, rich fabrics and local artefacts have a sense of place in this secluded fortress palace and play homage to one of the world’s ancient cultures, where luxury blends with landscape.

The Royal Pavilion Villas is the epitome of luxury in Abu Dhabi. Personalized resort excursions complement dining experiences created to delight the most adventurous palates and discerning tastes. While the Anantara Spa provides a sanctuary for relaxation and revitalization, that embodies ancient spa rituals.

The Spa

Escape to a place of simple pleasures, where Arabic design elements blend seamlessly with the outdoors and abundant natural light. The Spa at the Royal Pavilion Villas by Qasr Al Sarab has been developed with couples in mind. The private sanctuary, located in the main pavilion, offers an intimate retreat to indulge in spa journeys tailored to your individual mood, performed by the intuitive hands of our therapists. Afterwards, relax and allow your mind to wander in its dream-like state on the exclusive, secluded outdoor terrace.
