‘Desert Sanctuary - Talise Spa’

 

Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa is a five-star retreat located in the Arabian desert, 40 miles south-east of Abu Dhabi. Designed to look like a traditional Bedouin village there are just 103 guest rooms, suites or villas with private balconies and many have views across the desert. The resort features a 1000sqm swimming pool, gym and Talise spa and to keep kids happy Sinbad’s Kids Club. Activities on offer include a Fat Bike dune adventure or wildlife exploration, axe and knife throwing and archery. At the heart of the resort the central square is bordered by restaurants, bars and shops. Choose poolside or desert locations and from Italian and International cuisine.



In Our Opinion

‘The Talise spa offers a unique cryo-experience and an ice bucket shower! You will be invigorated and re-energised by a visit. For the less adventurous it also has two Turkish hammams, saunas and steam rooms – there is something for everyone.’
