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.
The emphasis is still very much on environmental consideration, but now guests can relax safe in the knowledge the hotel has a minimal impact philosophy but in considerably more comfort than before. The rooms all have tasteful décor, king size beds and en suite bathrooms with baths.
The View restaurant, which serves a range of international and Omani dishes, is all about the views as well (it's something of a theme here, if you hadn't gathered) and is reached by a walkway located near the canyon.
Away from the camp, activities in the area include trekking, donkey rides, mountain biking and visits to nearby cultural sites. It is also the perfect place from which to explore the Jebel Shams Mountain.
Why we love it
Located near Nizwa, many of Oman's major draw cards are close by. Visit the Al-Hoota caves, one of the largest caves in the world, before heading to Jebel Shams, the highest mountain in Oman.
