My brother and I enjoyed the Desert Day Safari at Arabian Nights Village very much. The staff were helpful and polite, the venue, food and entertainment were good quality and great fun However, I was extremely unhappy with the transport experience to the village and back. We booked as a couple but were put on a bus full of children who screamed and shouted, and ran up and down the bus for the whole journey to the village and back without any intervention by the driver. It was impossible to relax on the long 90 minute journey, and was a noisy and unpleasant experience for us and other families travelling to the camp. If you’re planning to visit, book a private transfer or drive yourself
Booked direct with Arabian Nights Village for one day desert safari. Picked up in Abu Dhabi city promptly and taken hour and a half into the desert. Desert village was beautiful and clean, a lovely spot to spend afternoon/evening. Dune Bashing in 4x4 was brilliant and henna tattoo/camel ride included. Extra facilities available at reasonable cost included Dune Buggy (which was great fun). In the evening a fabulous buffet meal was provided, very good quality and entertainment laid on, all in the price. Then taken back to Abu Dhabi safely. Thank you to Rafiq, our driver, for being polite and friendly and driving so brilliantly. Anyone based in Abu Dhabi looking for a genuine desert safari experience I would definitely recommend Arabian Nights Village.
Arabian Nights Village is a great alternative to camping in the desert. Rooms are comfortable (with A/C) and clean (albeit with no view and a bit dark); the pool area is a beautiful place to relax (the water was chilly) and there are nice sitting areas with views on the sand dunes. We enjoyed walking on the dunes and the quad experience. We wished the camel rides were in the sand and not on the paved road. Meals were plentiful; quality was average. Overall, we spent a nice 24hrs at the property.
We spent 2 nights at the Arabian Nights Village. This was a very nice experience in the desert, the accomodations are complete, clean and charming. The staff is taking care of you like you are in a 5 stars hotel. They have a nice pool, the breakfast and dinner food was various and very good. There are several activities you can take directly from the village, dune bashing, camel rides, etc. We would do it again.
We spent an afternoon and evening is this fairytale location in the middle of the desert. Riding on a a camel, experience a henna tattoo and the famous and super fun dune bashing in the middle of this beautiful desert!
