We stayed here for one night and had an absolute blast. They give you a free ride from the gas station in Al Wasil (easy to find) if you don't have a 4x4, which we didn't. The ride up to the camp is about ten to fifteen minutes. We were given a friendly welcome with fresh coffee and dates, and... More

From the booking I was very excited to be staying to what is portrayed a traditional Bedouin tent - wrong it was a concrete block with a tent like roof. There was too much artificial light to see a good starry night seen better in north of England.

The resort is easy to reach from the road but signage is poor if you are driving yourself, turn on the dirt track by the sign post past the mosque on the main road. Accommodation was excellent and food very good, buffet evening and breakfast, sunset was spectacular and staff excellent.

Beautiful rooms, colorfull and stylisch decoraction. You have your own little bedouine house, with seperate livingroom. They drive you up the high dune for sunset, restaurant outside with nice atmosphere. Avoid the weekend! In the weekend lots of noise from another camp & from dune bashing 4by4's, it poisens the desert experience. Friendly staff. With your own 4x4 easily accessible.

I expected this to feel more remote, but it was 11kms down a track and just beyond was another camp. When you were taken up to the dunes for the sunset/rise you could see how beautiful deserts can be, but in the camp it did not really feel as though you were in a desert. The facilities were all good,... More

This place is a jewelry in the middle of the sand dunes. One can watch the changing colors of the desert under the sunset, and this literally few meters from the porch of his tent. Should have stayed longer.... or maybe go back :)
