Just outside the hotel premises you’ll find beautiful sand dunes with a stunning view on the sunset or the sunrise. The staff are extremely friendly, very accommodating and helpful! The rooms are massive, very... More

Liwa hotel is a nice hotel right in the center of the Liwa Oasis region and one of only a few in this region. Perfectly located but it needs some refurbishment to become a facility.

I stayed here at least once a year over the past 7 years and really love this charming old hotel. Yes, it's a bit rough around the edges, but it has real charm with its large high ceiling room, huge pool in the center of the hotel, and a bit outdated decor. I really hope the managment keeps it as... More

This was our second stay in the hotel and, like the first time in March 2015, we enjoyed it thoroughly. Nice spacious rooms with a large covered terrasse/loggia, you could hear the birds sing. Large very well maintained swimming pool where we had some drinks. Enormous and tasty breakfast And very nice and friendly staff. Deserve an additional star!

The location of Liwa Hotel is definitely a unique, peaceful spot which plays host to a variety of native wild life species. A lucky visitor taking a walk just outside the hotel premises in the early hours of the morning might get a rare glimpse of a Falcon, desert fox, quail or an extremely elusive desert hare. The crisp, dry, clean air coupled with the songs of various types of bird species that has made the Liwa Hotel ground their home, make just waking up in the morning at any time of the year a truly magical moment. Liwa Hotel is committed to operating its activities in a complete environmentally friendly manner and it is the ultimate objective of the Hotel to expand and make its grounds a haven for all types of native animals and bird species, whether resident or migrant. History: The Liwa Oasis is the birth place of the ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. In 1793, the ruling family of the Abu Dhabi Emirate, Al Nahyan, moved their residence from Liwa to Abu Dhabi. The 39 villages that surround the oasis still provide a glimpse into the traditional life style of the inhabitants of the region. A historic fort which is located in one corner of the Oasis stands testimony to this bygone era. Whether you are a native, an expatriate living in UAE, or a tourist, surely The Liwa Hotel, the Oasis and the desert beyond will create an everlasting memory like no other.
