“A MUST if you're visiting Oman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Desert Nights Camp is a true gem. My family and I ventured out of Muscat to stay at the camp for one night. My parents had been before and went a second time so I could experience an overnight trip to the desert. Upon driving into the camp, there are camels to greet you. We had a good experience checking in, the staff was beyond helpful. The villas were spectacular and live up to the five star expectations. They offered a range of activities including camel rides, four wheeling, sand boarding and watching the sunset from the top of the sand dunes. The buffet style dinner was excellent with a range of food and they had live music as you ate. I would recommend this to friends and family, and stay a second time myself.

Room Tip: I would recommend two people to a villa, and traveling there in November or December.

Dear Guests,

That’s the beauty of our location…it’s all about Activity, Desert and delicious food up the Al Wasil End of the city and by the sounds of things it didn't take you long to discover the joys of it all. I’m thrilled you also enjoyed the service and facilities we offer at Desert Nights Camp Al Wasil and we were able to offer you all the comforts you could have wanted.

Great, well we certainly look forward to having you back for another stay and maybe you can try one of our other packages which all have great benefits. Do you enjoy the 01 hour desert tour? Perhaps you might enjoy the Our Activity Package which has been especially designed for convenience when choosing an 02 Night Stay In Desert .

Thank you also for your kind compliments ,we are pleased to read your review. It’s the Desert Night Camp way to make our guest feel well taken care .

Kind Regards,

Anurin Jansen

What a special place this is. Peace & quiet, gorgeous accommodation, and plenty to do in your down time. We loved driving out to Wadi Beni Khalid (or they offer a good tour at a good price), quad biking in the dunes, dune surfing, camel riding, and watching the sunset over the desert. Breakfast and dinner is included and both are delicious. The rooms are very nice and well kept. Don't miss a chance to stay her while you're in Oman, you won't regret it.

We stayed one night in the desert nights camp and it was magnificient. The staff is very friendly and the rooms and location are great. As a complementary service they took us up the dunes to watch the sunset. Afterwards we had dinner (a buffet plus bbq with very tasty meat). I would recommend this place to everyone!

Stayed here for one night during tour of Oman. Amazing place. We did dune bashing, sunset watching, camel riding, quad biking. Children thought it was fantastic. It was very friendly and the staff were very attentive. Restaurant was perfect with an Oud player as accompaniment

Thanks to the whole crew of the Desert Night Camp who made our stay (22-23.10) an unforgettable one.
After our arrival, we were driven up a high dune and witnessed a spectacular sunset, followed by dinner under the stars and an excellent night's sleep in our bungalow-tent, which was as clean and functional as it was confortable.
The next morning, we were able to enjoy sand surfing, quad driving in the sand and driving "sportily" in the sand in a 4-wheel jeep.
During the whole time of our stay, the DNC crew went out of its way to make our stay enjoyable and they succeded fully !

We just got back from spending 2 amazing nights over Eid. The hospitality of the staff is probably the best we have EVER experienced. The rooms are so beautiful & we were even upgraded to the 2 bedroom tent on our 2nd night :) We enjoyed the quad bikes, dune bashing, sunsets, camel rides & sand boarding. The food was also great & they have alcohol/shisha available after dinner. This was a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives & we are definitely going back!!

Our stay for one afternoon and 1 night in the desert nights camp far exceeded our expectations. I can only re-iterate what everyone else has said. The staff were welcoming from the start to finish, the complimentary ride up the dunes to see the sunset with drinks and nibbles was spectacular and great fun. The evening meal under the stars was delicious very restful but with a lovely friendly atmosphere. The accommodation was better than most 5* hotels, very spacious and comfortable. We made a point of getting up for the sunrise a 1st for us which was amazing.We took advantage of the morning camel ride round the site with a lovely friendly bedouin.
my thanks to the staff and desert nights camp for such an unforgettable experience
