Best desert experience in UAE
Jun 2021 • Couples
It was a most wonderfull experience. What a great day! It started with a pick-up at the hotel. Than we could walk around in the museum at our easy. This was followed by a drive to some archeological sites. So much still to discover! Afterwards we drove in the desert and had amazing views! The day ended with stargazing and diner in the desert! We chose the private version and I highly recommend it to everybody!
So much to love about the place and those who work. Special shout out to Nehar! Experience dune drive with passion for his job!

Beautiful experience. Highly recommend
Dec 2020 • Friends
Can't describe enough how amazing our trip was.
The minute we arrived we were welcomed by an amazing group of professionals who explained and accommodated the needs of each and everyone of us.
We were a group of almost 30 people, we had children with us.
Myself and my daughter were a bit hesitant to do the off road, they provided a special car for us, he had the experience of desert with less bumps, yet we dod not miss any detail from the trip.
Our driver Omar was extremely thoughtful and professional, knowledgeable and prudent.
He explained thoroughly the phase of the ride, reassured us and the last few minutes we were so confident that Omar actually did some of his amazing driving tricks and we were thrilled.
Arriving to the camp, the sight was just magical.
We did stargazing, the informations they gave was so deep and beautiful that left all of kids and adults amazed.
Food came was great too. Warm delicious and everyone was pleased.

Mleiha a hidden gem of the UAE.
I highly recommend.

Meteoric showers at Meliha
Dec 2020 • Friends
We were a large group of people out to see the meteor showers. It was a beautiful experience well organised. Jackeline saw to all the details. Prabhu (astronomer) on the mike was very informative and kept us entertained with quizes and other interesting details.

We were lucky to see plenty of meteor showers as well as two fireballs. Loved the venue and the service. Will definitely recommend the venue to others.

An amazing day out in Mleiha
Nov 2020
It was an amazing experience. All the staff were very professional. Specially enjoying the trip during current COVID19 time was another great experience. All the COVID19 precautions were in place and were strictly followed.
The experience itself was really amazing. Knowledge of the guide was of top level and their interactive way of guiding was something to appreciate the most.
Must visit spot for the people to explore the archaeology, history and culture.
The buffet lunch and the Cafe setup was amazing as one was able to get variety of tastes.

Wonderful. Amazing museum- our guide Anuraj made the Stone Age interesting! Gorgeous scenery. Sunset lounge was perfect- delicious food, romantic setting and star gazing. Kids couldn’t believe that we saw Saturn’s rings! We’ll be back. Thank you Mleiah.

Great discovery
Aug 2020 • Couples
Mleiha is a great place to learn about pre-Islamic history, visit some historical sights, do dune bashing and star grazing.
We went for the Adventure package offered by Mleiha Archeological Centre which includes all the above activities and dinner in the desert camp and can be found on Entertainer.
We had a truly amazing experience which wouldn't have been so rich without a friendly and experienced staff of the Mleiha Archeological centre.
Prabhakaran walked us through the Centre and historical sights sharing his knowledge of Mleiha history during the day and shown the star constellations, Moon and his favourite star Saturn through the huge telescope in a desert camp later at night.
Shihab navigated the dunes as if he was driving a highway and made us feel really safe throughout our journey. We visited Fossil rock and debated for quite a while on the shape of the Camel rock. Later in the evening he drove us to the desert camp where we had a tasty dinner.
If you are looking to discover new places in the UAE, Mleiha is definitely worth paying a visit and can be easily organized in a day trip with help of the Centre. Just book in advance!

What an experience!
Mar 2020 • Family
What an amazing experience!
On our way there, my kids were not very excited or interested to go. That soon changed when we got to the museum. TK, our guide was so knowledgeable that the kids were soon hanging on his each and every word.
Saw amazing ancient artifacts, made some fun clay moulds during the interactive exhibit.

Walked around the stables, will definitely pop around again for horse riding lessons for the kids.

Dinner was delicious, healthy food and yummy desserts, best brownie hands down.

Star gazing with TK, amazing us again with his knowledge.
Sitting around a fire with my happy smiling family made my heart smile.

Kids said that this was one of the best family days ever.
Will definitely take my family and any guests there again.
