urrounded by natural beauty and serene tranquillity

Step into a stunning Arabian-inspired boutique resort, Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa boasts timeless local details, traditional artwork, and attention to detail in every corner you look. 

If you need to switch off and relax, this relaxing resort is for you! 

A luxury desert oasis

Located 60-minutes from the centre of Abu Dhabi, Al Wathba is set deep within the desert and surrounded by stunning mountain dunes. This means the entire resort is completely peaceful and serene - an absolute win if you’re looking to switch off for the day. 

Panoramic dune views

Not quite your average poolside view, guests at Al Wathba are treated to incredible views of the desert and beyond as they bask in the sunshine. The impressive pool is also home to a large jacuzzi and a swim-up pool bar, Panache, serving light snacks and refreshing drinks.

If you're bringing the family, kids will love the shaded kids' pool that has its very own play area!

A dining destination

Privilee Members get an exclusive discount of 20% across all of the resort's restaurants; Bait Al Hanine, Al Mabeet, Terra Secca, Al Mesayan and Panache. Indulge in mouth watering Italian dishes at Terra Secca or head to Bat Al Hanine for homemade food inspired by the Arabian Gulf and Lebanon. If you want to enjoy breathtaking sunset views and sip on signature cocktails, Al Mesayan is waiting. 

Fun desert activities!

Of course, the resort is perfect if all you want to do is chill out with a book or podcast, but if you’d like to try something new or get active when you visit, you have many options! 

Experience surfing in the Arabian desert with ‘Desert Waves’ or learn all about archery and perfect your aim with the guidance of an expert trainer. Thrill seekers, get ready for a ‘Sand-Wheel Adventure’, biking through the desert dunes!

Privilee Members save 20% on Archery, Desert Walks, Sand Wheel Adventure and Desert Waves. 

A tranquil spa
