Inspired by Mediterranean palaces whilst remaining true to the destination, the elegant grandeur of an Arabian fantasy is designed to delight the most discerning travelers.

The Islamic garden design concept of the Paradise Garden is realized with courtyard gardens and water features that provide shade and protection from the elements.

A modern oasis of contemporary design incorporates traditional elements that subtly allude to the destination. Inspiring guest journeys past infinity edged water features and along covered walkways, provide a modern yet graceful allure.

The expanse of indoor and outdoor spaces flow seamlessly in a contemporary style with archways and balconies detailed in fine Arabic style. Terracotta colored roof tiles hint at the Mediterranean essence.
