We were at Liwa Hotel for about a month working in the area. We had great service when checking in and out, and the food was great. The bathrooms are slightly dated, but the rooms themselves are quite comfortable. Outside there is a lovely seating area I frequently enjoyed. Beautiful scenery (sand) around the hotel, but it's up on a... More

Just at the edge of the desert, Liwa hotel is a 3 stars with 4 stars price. The hotel could deserve the 4th star....rooms are big an clean, the swimming pool is very nice. The restaurant (in the lobby) could be better but food (good quality) is served also on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool.

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.
