Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa, Abu Dhabi

A desert resort attuned with Emirati culture

With meandering courtyards, lush gardens and reflective pools, each corner of the resort tells a story, allowing you to explore a wondrous new culture as well as rediscover yourself.

Inspired by the natural Falaj of an oasis, water features are interspersed throughout, leading to the 1000 square feet pool and the true life of the resort.

Our five dining destinations and desert camp infuses a perfect blend of culinary delights, including Italian, Arabic and International favourites with their very own twist. Paired with the signature Hammam treatments, a crystal salt and Cryo room within the Talise Spa, Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort & Spa offers you an experience for the senses.

A truly distinctive journey awaits as you relive fleeting moments of a place untouched by time, attuned with the Emirati culture and with breathtaking backdrop of panoramic desert views, brought together by the understated luxury and hospitality of Jumeirah.
