Wedding venue: Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara

Just minutes from Abu Dhabi, celebrate in Qasr Al Sarab- one of the world’s most majestic desert destinations.

Max capacity 

350 guests in the ballroom. 

The ceremony

Your options are extremely varied at Qasr Al Sarab and all utterly unique. Firstly, you can opt for an intimate pool villa ceremony. Or you can reserve all 10 Royal Pavilion villas for exclusivity and private butlers will ensure your guests feel like royalty.

Sunset Desert wedding

Alternatively, choose the Sunset Desert Wedding package and create the celebration of your dreams. Arrive by camel or Arabian horse and enjoy a cocktail celebration around a roaring bonfire. It also includes a dinner under the blue starry skies, this package is full of romance for enchanting memories.

The reception

After the ceremony, the traditional Reflection Courtyard is the perfect place for an intimate cocktail reception. The Courtyard is surrounded by a host of local touches from Arabian lanterns to traditional Sadu. Otherwise, enjoy sweeping views of the desert over dinner on The Terrace at Qasr Al Sarab.

For an indoor option, you can choose the Liwa Ballroom, which has a private entrance, reception and an outdoor terrace with desert views. The Liwa ballroom hosts up to 350 guests. Nonetheless, our favourite has to be the option to dine like Bedouins under the stars of the vast Liwa desert.

The Dune Terrace

Special touches

Prior to the ceremony, the bridal couple can indulge in a couple’s spa treatment and then spend their wedding night in one of the beautifully appointed Royal Pavilion Villas. The next morning, you will be treated to in-villa breakfast and romantic amenities.

Another sweet touch, is a cocktail that Qasr Al Sarab, Anantara will make the night before. This memorable drink will personalise your wedding day as it is Tailor-made to every couple’s taste.

Suits you if…

… if you have guests who want to arrive by air. It’s not uncommon to see helicopters soar over the legendary Empty Quarter to land at the hotel’s private helipad.
