Hotel: Qasr al Sarab Desert Resort, U.A.E. In the heart of one of the largest uninterrupted deserts in the world, guests can ride on camels or mountain bikes over dunes, try their hand at archery, go land sailing or dune bashing through the desert and watch animals graze by the infinity pool.
The Gobi Desert is the largest desert region in Asia and the fifth largest in the world covering southern Mongolia and northern China. Unlike the Sahara there are few sand dunes in the Gobi; rather you'll find large barren expenses of gravel plains and rocky outcrops. (Pic by flickr user edans)
