 I like this song, even though it's off one of my lesser favourite Police albums. 
not that many actual guitar chords on here, so I've written down what my musical ear can hear. 
hope they help!

Intro: C#m7
   C#m | C#m
e|-4-4-4-4---|
B|-5-5-5-5---|
G|-6-6-4-6---|
D|-6-6-6-6---|
A|-4-4-4-4---|
E|-----------|

^ Repeat that little riff as many times as needed.

Verse:
     F#m7
[My] Sisters and I
         A
Have one wish before we die
       F#m7
And it may sound strange
          A
As if our minds are derranged
       F#m7
Please don't ask us why
            A
Beneath the sheltering sky
             F#m7
We have this strange obsession
             A
You have the means in your posession

Chorus:
Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B
With you
Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B
With you


The young man agreed
He would satisfy their needs
So they danced for his pleasure
With a joy you could not measure
They'd wait for him here
The same place every year
Beneath the sheltering sky
Across the desert he would fly

Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B
With you
Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B
With you
Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B
With you
Esus4        E
Tea in the Sahara
     Asus2 B   C#m C#m7 etc.
With you--oo--oo...

Middle 8: Same as intro

The sky turned to black
Would he ever come back?
They would climb a high dune
They would pray to the moon
But he never returned
So the sisters would burn
As their eyes searched the land
Their cups still full of sand

Tea in the Sahara
With you
Tea in the Sahara
With you
Tea in the Sahara
With you
Tea in the Sahara
With you

That's it, boys and girls! Enjoy.

F#m7 sounds a little off.

Mmm... The real chords are a complete mistery.

This seems right to me. I do remember seeing the chords once ages ago in a chordbook and this is pretty much there.

Not sure if it was C#m in the interludes though, may be a slightly more obscure chords. The verse and chorus seem pretty much spot on though. THANKS!
