We had a great time in the Desert Nights camp. The accomodation is ok, but I would have appreciated some more pressure on the shower water. The room is basically a walled structure with a tent roof. Luckily there was airconditioning because it tends to get very hot in the desert. We enjoyed a chargeable 4-wheel drive in the desert,... More

We arrived in the afternoon in time to be taken up the nearby sand dunes to watch the sunset. We then slid down the dunes and were mesmerised, watching the dune beetles scurry about and pat the wandering camels. A buffet dinner was in the main restaurant where there was a good selection of fish, lamb, beef and numerous other... More

Absolutely beautiful, wish we had stayed longer. But do not arrive in the dark as it is impossible to find! We hadn't intended to arrive in the dark but it is a good 2-3 hours from Muscat; we had to phone many times and were met in the end! Was well worth it though- wonderful. Take a jumper- gets surprisingly... More

This was our favourite place to stay during our trip to Oman. It was easy enough to get to using Google maps (route yourself to Al Wasil, then follow the long, straight desert road until you reach the camp. It is signposted from the main road in Al Wasil). We were treated like royalty throughout our stay. I can recommend... More

Beautiful place with comfortable setting in the mid of desert. The service was excellent and all facilities were available in the rooms. A good location if you are looking for secluded holidays away from the daily chores of city life. Food quality was good and overall a good place to spend some quality me time.

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
