This is a wonderful hotel with full amenities in the desert. My room was a stand alone building with an outdoor shower and toilet that had the most amazing view of stars at night. Best bathroom ever. The food is great and plentiful for both breakfast and dinner. The grounds are clean and well kept. Very lovely location.
Oh my! What a lovely place in the Wahibi Sands desert! We arrived with our tour group of 12 in 3 land cruisers. The journey to getting to the camp was adventure aplenty, with much dune bashing and some stops along the way to check out random camels walking through the desert. We were greeted and welcomed to the camp with tea and dates and checked in to our "tents". Ours (and most others) weren't really tents -- actual small structures with a "tent-like" quality to them on the inside. Ours was large with three twin beds. The room was covered in carpet (ceiling, walls, and floor) with large pillows for lounging. Mosquito nets covered the beds and the windows were glass-less with shutters. The bathroom was outside and while it had walls and a door, it was "open air". Fun! The camels were calling; we followed our noses and the adorable camel grunts to the camp entrance where short and long camel rides were being offered. I'm no camel exert but they looked to be in good shape and well cared for. A short ride was had and enjoyed before we got back in the land cruisers for more dune bashing and fun frolicking in the desert sand before enjoying a remote sunset. Wow oh wow. I do so very much love sunsets in the desert. Back at the camp, we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the main dining area. Very good food. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't any after-dinner activities -- music? camp fire? Bedouin ghost stories? Seriously, though - having the opportunity to hear about Bedouin life out in the desert would have been fantastic. Our group just sat around on pillows outside for a short time then we all just dispersed back to our individual tents, which was too bad. We woke up early and had the most spectacular sunset views from the "front porch" of our "tent". Magical. Breakfast was hearty with amazing omelets and the most fantastic Arabic-style bread I had during my whole stay in Oman. I would have loved to stay a few hours longer, but there was much of Oman to see. I enjoyed my stay! I highly recommend it!…
Great location. Nice tents, well spaced out so you feel you can enjoy the desert alone. Great camel rides to watch the sunset and a good dinner also served. Well priced and all round a really nice experience
A colleague and I extended a work trip and did a 1 day tour that included a overnight stay at this desert camp. It was one of the most beautiful nights of my life! The staff were welcoming and friendly (especially Mohammed) and we were lucky enough to be the only guests at the camp! We went on a stunning camel tour to see the sunset and set our alarms at 3am to see the stars a night. Facilities are basic but we needed nothing more - you are staying in the desert after all, why would you want wifi and a flat screen TV! Food was amazing on camp (as was elsewhere in Oman) and our room and bathroom was clear. Would definitely recommend!
I highly recommend this place. You can spend evening on dunes to watch sunset and again watch the sunrise if you wish to do so. The food at buffet is lovely as well as the friendly staff. I would come here again, highly recommended! If you meet people outside of the desert telling you that you are not able to drive there if you do not have 4x4 car, do not believe them. You will be able to. :)
