Despite having a very young boy with us, we decided to take this adventure and spend 1 night in the desert in a "tent". This is classified as a luxury camp, therefore not too much of a risk in fact. We had great time and all was very well organised from pick up to activities up to check out. We... More

what a special place! the camp is beautifully located amongst high sand dunes in the Omani desert. 'tents' were very attractive and well appointed (and very clean too). dinner was nice and waffles at breakfast time! watching the sunset on top of high sand dunes was an unforgettable wonderful experience. expensive but worth it!

It was an amazing stay in the desert, very easy to reach by car. Watching sunset, sunboarding, have a camel ride, experience the sands... We and our two 10-years old kids enjoyed the location, service and food. No pool, but driving 1 hour to wadi bani khalid for swimming and sightseeing.

If you want the basic conveniences of a hotel but with the feeling that you've gone camping in the desert, then this is a great option. The activities will probably keep you occupied for a couple of days (dune bashing, quad biking, watching a desert sunset, sand boarding) but it's a shame they don't have 2- or 4-seater dune buggies....

The area itself is nice, rooms are clean. We arrived at 1 pm in May. As this is a really hot period, they had no activities before sunset. This should be mentioned in the booking, as there is nothing else you can do on your own. I would recommend to arrive on 5 pm and book the activities in advance.... More

The hotel is located 2 hours away from Muscat, direction Sur, 11 km off the road of Al Wasil town. It is recommended to have 4 wheel drive to go the last 11 km.

Stayed here with family for 1 night as part of a holiday in Oman. The camp met our expectations from other reviews and photos. Unfortunately, the day we went there was a heavy thunderstorm, which meant torrential rain for much of the evening, and grey skies in the morning. Rooms are spacious and well designed. The bed was very comfortable,... More
