The atmosphere of the hotel feels like entering a peaceful oasis. The guests are welcomed with a long central water feature that mimics a mirage in a desert, with the reflection of a chandelier that looks like sand dune contours. Some geometric patterns on furniture, mosaic tiles and carpets make a subtle reference to the local identity and its Nature.

The serviced apartments welcome the guests into a warm desert sunset of hues with rusty oranges and purples. The studio is separated by a wooden revolving television stand that separates the bedroom from the seating area.

The standard guestroom is characterized by the use of lines inspired from local plants. A Herringbone patterned wood panelling frames the bed and draws its inspiration from palm leaves. On the opposite wall, a blue accent mural wallpaper with allusions to palm tree leaves adds a modern artistic digital touch to the room. As a whole, the colours of the room are inspired from a dunes landscape with oranges and their complementary blue hues found in the sky, the vegetation and the wadis.
