Accommodation very good in "mock" tents. Bedroom, separate sitting areas ( inside and outside ) and shower room all air conditioned. Great accommodation for a desert experience. Outside dining areas very pleasant with local group playing in background. Dinner and breakfast buffets had extensive choices but food of not very high quality. Overall very good but let down by quality... More

We spent 2 nights here in October 2014. This camp is superb. Don't expect tv but expect a total rest in a beautiful location. Tents are fully equipped and well air conditioned and the camp may be near to another one but this absolutely does not detract from the experience. watch camels walk past your tent in the morning, climb...

1) driving there yourself. We hired an AWD Kia sportage to get us around Oman. The desert drive to the camp was drivable. It is all flat. We did not let air out of the tyres on the basis that we were not taking the car wadi bashing and it was ok. It is easier to drive off the main... More

We spent 2 days in this superb location and was a unique experience. Personnel very friendly, nice rooms and excellent food! I advise for dune bashing and camel ride. Only thing is that activities and quite expensive. One night is enough if you do not have many activities

Out of all hotels in our trip to Oman, this is indeed the most remarkable we stayed in. It is a bit hard to reach, and yes -- you need a 4x4 to reach it as the 11km that separate the camp from Al-Wasil are a truly delighful drive if you like sand-driving. The tents are large, fully equipped and... More

What a wonderful place. Great location between two enormous dunes. Tents were like a tar dis - much bigger on the inside. And of a high quality. May need upgrading soon though - especially bathrooms although perfectly adequate. We didn't arrive until 4pm and we're leaving the next day at 9am so didn't leave much time for activities which was... More

Great camp for an overnight stay in the middle of the "Wahiba Sands" desert. The hospitality us great. The camp is well-equipped,well maintained, clean and it glad all the necessary infrastructure. Free pickup service from "Al Wasil". We especially enjoyed the sunset watching and the camel riding. We highly recommend the camp!

I wouldn't say that our experience started so well with camping in the desert! We got lost...very lost and missed sunset. We did email the hotel prior asking for directions but they gave us GPS coordinates that didnt make sense...but they promised they were correct despite my queries. We had to call them and they came to collect us and... More

Ticked this off my wish list and what a great stay we had! We drove from Muscat and yes it is a fair way approx 3 hours but arriving we couldn't have been more than impressed! Our luxury tent was beautiful, for a desert camp this exceeded my expectations - nice clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated! You have a outdoor... More

The camp not too far from Sur is in the middle of very nice dunes of the Wahabi Desert. Being remote from all light polution of cities, it is a very nice place to just be alone with your loved one. Service and foor is good. Transport can be arranged but we had our 4x4.
