Those gracious resorts you see hovering over the warm tropical waters of Maldives aren’t the only ones that will wow you on your vacation. If you’ve got a visit to the United Arab Emirates planned, then the Banyan Tree Al Wadi Resort might be your spot for something that’s a little less desert and a little more native feeling.
This amazing luxury space is full of elaborate rooms, insane mosaic tiled spas, an exquisitely lit bar and high end finishes. The suites appear to float on this desert oasis, with outdoor beds and sleek contemporary tent like touches on the facades. Don’t let the “hut” style feel fool you, either. Marble stone accents, rich woods and canopied beds are abound in this space, on top of all of the other generous amenities in and outside of this hotel.
