Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara has implemented extensive luxury updates to its resort facilities, alongside new health and safety features that ensure unforgettable stays with absolute peace of mind.
With enhanced leisure, wellness and family offerings, the iconic hotel will reopen its gates on August 15. Adhering to the highest operational standards for ‘new normal’ travel, Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort has adopted a 360-degree approach to hygiene and safety, including sanitising stations, physical distancing and health checks for team members. An Anantara Guest Guardian has been appointed to oversee the programme, which has earned the resort the ‘Go Safe Certification’ from the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT Abu Dhabi).
The resort has also enriched its children’s offerings with fun-filled amenities and activities for kids. These include upgrades to the kids’ club, a new soft-play zone in the pool, nutritious and delicious menu options, and complimentary activities and experiences designed to keep younger travellers engaged throughout their stay.
For indulgent days of relaxation and fun in the sun, the pool area has been refurbished to provide multiple zones for guests of all ages. Upgrades include children’s splash pad area, luxurious in-water loungers and an in-water swing, new cabanas providing enhanced guest privacy, a 50-metre stretch for laps, striking poolside decor and more. The highlight is the sleek new swim-up bar which offers the perfect pool time menu including a collection of desert-inspired beverages.
In addition to the existing suite of leisure amenities, fitness facilities have received cutting-edge upgrades. The gym now features new Technogym equipment, including the Zwift virtual cycling system. Outdoors, a desert volleyball court and super-sized Jenga and chess create even more opportunities for active fun. The tennis and basketball courts are open 24 hours and free to use for all guests. Gym memberships will also be available for local residents, with access to the fitness centre, pool, steam room and sauna and additional resort-wide discounts.
Finally, the resort’s spa experiences have been enhanced with the latest in technology and treatments. The wellness centre relaunches with new relaxation spaces for men and women, indoor and outdoor meditation zones and Psammo therapy sand-heat.
