Located in the heart of the Wahiba Sands, a vast expanse in the Omani desert, Desert Nights Camp is the ultimate desert refuge, with an added dose of luxury.

Isabel, Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

Accommodation is comprised of 30 Bedouin style tents - two of which are specifically for families and four of which are attached - and all take desert camping to another level. Tents are equipped with comfortable beds, and stunning Omani furniture, wall hangings and lanterns complete the picture. Bathrooms are equally sumptuous with touches such as bathrobes and slippers ensuring all creature comforts are to hand.

The Two Dunes restaurant serves authentic Arabic cuisine, and the Oasis Bar is the place to go after a day's adventure in the dunes for a refreshing cocktail. There is also plenty to do in and around the camp. With the desert as the playground, and more specifically the Wahiba Sands dunes, the activities range from dune bashing and quad biking to a sunset camel ride and trekking in the dunes.

Why we love it

Each tent has its own veranda with stunning views, and if you ask nicely the camp will lend you a BBQ.

The View

The View

The View just got even better. Where this eco retreat once had 15 tents, some of which were in a second row behind the first, an eight month makeover now means there are 30 stylish pods spread over a larger area, and all of which have stunning views of the extraordinary canyon scenery.

Alila Jabal Akhdar, luxury hotel in Oman

Alila Jabal Akhdar

The spectacular Hajar mountain range is one of the (many) highlights of Oman, and at the centre of the range sits the magnificent Jebel Akhdar or ‘green mountain’. Long seen as somewhere to explore on route between the capital Muscat and the ancient market city of Nizwa, the opening in 2014 of the Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel means the mountains now have a supremely luxurious place to stay in their own right.

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar

The luxury resort is perched 2,000 meters above sea level, making it the highest five star resort in the Middle East. Only two hours’ drive away from Muscat International Airport, the Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar is a tranquil oasis perfect for a relaxing escape.
