Western Region - President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, toured yesterday Western Region of the Abu Dhabi emirate to inspect the petroleum, gas, developmental, housing, architectural and tourism projects in the area. The visit also covered the iconic Qasr Al Sarab resort.

Sheikh Khalifa was accompanied by Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. He was impressed by the Arab original heritage architecture of the palace.

Sheikh Khalifa said at the conclusion of his visit that the projects would contribute in the tourism activity in the area as they would develop the Western Region economically, culturally and socially.

He was also accompanied by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Representative of Ruler in Western Region, His Highness Sheikh Tahnoun bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, Representative of Ruler in Eastern Region, His Highness Sheikh Haza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Adviser, His Highness Lt. General Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister, other Sheikhs, ministers and high ranking officials.

The banquet was hosted in honour of Sheikh Khalifa and his entourage at the Al Sarab Palace.

Amidst the golden red sand dunes of the Liwa desert, rises a breathtaking sensation: a five-star luxury resort that epitomises the culture and roots of the United Arab Emirates. Qasr al Sarab Desert Resort is the first-of-its-kind resort to deliver hospitality and an ambience, reflective of genuine Emirati culture, to the world.

Situated in the Empty Quarter (Rub Al Khali), the world's largest stretch of uninterrupted desert, Qasr Al Sarab is a true phenomenon - a landmark that smoothly blends into its pristine surrounding environment and a destination rich in history with settlements dating back to as far as 7,000 years ago. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
