We spent two nights at Desert Nights, which is possibly the optimum, as it leaves time to relax and enjoy the ambience, rather than rushing in and out and continually on the go. We had a super stay. The staff were excellent, very helpful and efficient. The meals and accomodation were of a similar standard and the available activities and... More

The Desert Nights Camp lodging is unique and very comfortable. The units have concrete foundations and floors with secure doors/windows. The roof is canvas giving a tent like appearance. The bath is moderate sized. WiFi in the recreation area. Would have given a higher overall rating but the food was only average to below average. The breakfast breads were stale... More

Beautiful accommodation in traditional style. Spectacular location. Food was perfect - the best selection to suit all members of our family that we experienced in our ten days in Oman. Took the 4x4s to the top to watch the sunset, and the boys did the quad biking. Both great experiences. Wished we stayed there longer to fit in some camel-trekking.

The 30 cabins, most with concrete walls and tented roofs, are widely spaced and well-located for dune views amid a large flat area of desert sand. Our “Deluxe Tented Suite” had a great edge-of-the-desert view and was luxuriously appointed in Omani style. Everything worked, all amenities were provided, and we especially appreciated that the suite had separate A/C controls for... More

We stayed two days in this tent camp with good quality. It is not 5star but nobody expects this and it is better how it is. We did a 4 hours camel ride which was phantastic (wear long trousers and anyway it hurts when you are not used to it ;-)). But it is an adventure you should not miss... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience in the desert. Lovely 'tent' accommadation wonderful food and a very warm welcome from all the staff. As it was cloudy for the sunset we were up early for the sunrise which was a lovely peaceful time. Only sadness, because it is so quiet it was possible to hear the aircraft overhead although they were... More

- Fantastic place itself, in the midst of the desert - lovely cottages/tents to stay in overnight, spacious and well furnished with lots of taste - great food in the main restaurant and a nice band playing arab music - not over-touristic place that hopefully stays like this (no motorcyclists etc.... !!!!) - Gorgeous sunset on the dunes in the...

This is a truly nice experience. The dirt road is more for the excitement than necessary, I presume, but adds to the experience and there is nothing wrong with that. The hotel is very nice. The food is OK but not exceptional. There are a lot of things to do. Quad driving is short but surprisingly nice, with a nice... More
