I think its a bit overpriced but since we have 2 small children with us, its just a small price to pay

A perfect night in the desert.

The place and the room-tents are an unforgetable experience. It's a must to take a Quad tour in the desert!

Too close to town to see incredible star display normally seen in desert night sky.
Quick to arrive at the location from main road. No experience with desert driving needed. Comfy beds. Nice bathrooms. Friendly staff. Live Omani music during dinner. Excellent guides provide desert activities, sandboarding, quadbiking, dune bashing. Sunset.

Would have liked a camp fire and shisha, etc. Very expensive for sleeping in what is essentially a tent.
breakfast and dinner with a few drinks in the desert very nice.

Visit to dunes at sunset Good barbecue
February 16, 2015
Poor dinner, the same food was served for breakfast the moring after. One of bath robes was dirty, towels too used and napkin in the restaurant with a huge hole. Sand boarding was offered as one of activities for extra charge. However the boards provided were absolutelly not suitable and instead of sliding down the dune, all riders were just stuck in sand. I strongly suggest to remove this activity from the offer because it just does not work.
Staff was nice, expecially driver who took us from Al Wasil.

Noisy bike of the camp baggage transfer service, Lack of room services Too much lights within the camp at night which doesn't help star watching
The camp is good, clean Staff were friendly and helpful Kids loved it so I booked for another trip. It's the best available in the region.

Wifi connection was poor and internet could not be accessed.
"Desert drive" driver Mr. Ahmed was very nice and did his job at our satisfaction. It was a real pleasure to have him our guide and as driver for 1 hour tour. Hotel Staffs were good, food was nice.

Food was not quite up to the standard for the overall price but that is a quibble!
An experience of a desert camp in great luxury. It's an 11km drive on hard sand (4X4 needed if you are not experienced on sand), you leave your car outside and then they take care of you. Baggage transported on buggies as the camp is quite large and sandy. Rooms are suites with the canvas limited to the roof. Well equipped - AC in each room - large bathroom, water, kettle etc. Included is a drink at sunset on the dunes and a short camel ride in the morning - clean camel! There are optional activities such as an excellent introduction to dune buggies and treks etc. Food is plentiful at dinner and breakfast and service is friendly and discrete. Arrive early enough to have time in the afternoon to walk up the nearby dunes on your own and enjoy the solitude.Good night skies although too much light pollution from the camp to be amazing as the desert is. Worth a night

The noise from all the quad bikes and traffic to the other accommodation nearby, other people's hair on the bathroom floor.
The comfortable bed, the delicious dinner (especially the BBQ'd lamb chops!), the space between each tent, the friendliness of the staff, the decor of the rooms.
January 5, 2015
- Wifi isn't great but impressive to get any in the desert - the food was good but nothing outstanding
- Rooms are very luxurious for a desert camp and really comfortable (with air conditioning) - Location is beautiful - the activities offered (additional costs) were really fun (especially the sand boarding and the quad bikes) - the trip up the hill for sunset was really great - All staff were very helpful - it was very easy to find the camp off from the main road

Music at night was very loud as we were staying very close to the restaurant, The price of the activities was very high, not many restaurants around the area. You need a 4 wheel drive car to get there from the main road.
Very quiet, nice to have a day or two for relaxing away from the city.
