What You’ll Love...

The Resort – A desert sanctuary attuned with Emirati culture

A stay at Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa will provide you with the best of both worlds: ideally located just a 90-minute drive from Dubai and a 60-minute drive from downtown Abu Dhabi, you will be able to discover the best of both cities and at the same time explore the magnificent surroundings with exciting activities including horse riding, biking through the dunes and desert treks.

An intimate 90-room property, designed with the historic desert villages in mind, Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa is a charming display of Arabian grandeur, luscious courtyards, water features and pools inspired by natural irrigation channels – all of this in the awe-inspiring desert scenery.

Expect nothing but luxurious facilities from Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa: the resort features six restaurants and bars, a fully equipped gym, a sprawling 1,000sqm swimming pool surrounded by swaying palm trees and sumptuous cabanas, a kids' club and more. Unwind in the resort's destination spa, Talise: an oasis of tranquility and peace for a blissful experience.
