Combining traditional Arabian and modern accents

Pretend to be Lawrence of Arabia as you stay close to one of the world's tallest sand dunes

Tilal Liwa Hotel is situated on the edge of the rolling dunes of the Rub al Khali desert, 12.4 miles from Madinat Zayed. The ideal location to enjoy peaceful serenity with some of the tallest dunes in the whole of the Middle East, just a 175 km car ride from the hub of Abu Dhabi.

The accommodation consists of 111 rooms all with views of the dunes or the luscious oasis-like gardens. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi access, satellite TV and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities. The rooms have a certain Arabian warmth and charm due to the choice of deep shades and natural textures in the decor. Outside in the courtyard of the hotel there is a large infinity swimming pool, which is shaded by a large variety of tropical plants. To keep children entertain there is also a playground. Tilal Liwa has two restaurants, in one you can even watch the chefs preparing your food right in front of you.

A great activity to try on your stay at Tilal Liwa is sandboarding. No snow in sight, enjoy gliding down the banks of the sandy dunes if you’re of an adventurous nature. In the desert why not explore the route of the forts or the dune of Moreeb. The hotel can organise a desert safari and you may get the opportunity to view wild camels or gazelles.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
