    Pretty good. It did not seem very authentic but the facilities were nice.

    Good fun for one night but not five star

    The desert night camp gives a fairly upmarket glamping experience - but that’s mainly due to the accommodation and, to some extent, the activities offered. Don’t go there for the food, the entertainment or the drinks. There’s a full menu of drinks but with many of them not actually available (no beers and no tonic water for example) but they’ll push their expensive cocktails instead. To be fair all the alcohol is expensive but that’s more to do with the duty structure in Oman than the hotel’s margins. Still, drink choice and food quality was mediocre at best - and definitely not five star. But the experience is good fun, the ‘tents’ in great condition and I’d recommend it - but for one night only.

    Lovely camp with friendly staff

    The camp and the staff were really lovely. The tents are super comfortable and at a high standard. The camp (and especially neighbouring camps) have a bit too many lights on at night that have a negative impact on the amount of stars you can see. Only point for improval would be the food - the buffet was not great but also did not expect a culinary experience in the middle of the desert.

    사막 한가운데 위치한 독특한 텐트 스타일의 숙소. 지은 지 시일이 좀 지났음에도 관리가 상당히 잘 되어있음 숙소까지 가는 길에 대한 안내가 좀 더 필요함

    A comfortable and friendly stay in the desert

    We spent a fantastic few nights here - very comfortable canvas topped lodges in the middle of the desert. Very friendly staff, tasty, freshly cooked food and lots of activities to keep the family busy.

    After staying at a 5* Hotel in Muscat, initially we had to adjust to the simpler life here, no TV, low lighting so I couldn't read late, and no swimming pool for the kids, however, after half a day here, we were so glad we booked 2 days. As I read about the many nocturnal poisonous creatures such as scorpions, spiders and snakes that the in-room brochure said were plentiful and definitely roaming our camp, a slight panic began to rise in me....what might drop on me in the night?...what was under the bed?... how was I going to walk in the pitch black dark to the other end of the camp for dinner? However I needn't have worried, with torch in hand, we didn't encounter anything scarey. Many reviews said 1 night was enough but for us 2 nights immersed us further into the location and we started to fully relax, the staff were friendly and super helpful and although the games room has seen much better days, our kids still managed to entertain themselves with 2 half working darts and a pool table and we read alot on our veranda during the day. The quadbiking was the highlight of our activities and the children enjoyed the complimentary ride on the camels. We also went up the dunes to see the sun-set although unusually we had clouds, it was none the less, a great experience and a perfect 2 night stay in the middle of the dunes. The food was delicious and plentiful. A big thank you to the Management who got us safely to our next hotel in the mountains after unexpected rain.

    Nice stay at DNC

    Nice stay at DNC. Really cool location in the desert. Really fun drive across the sand to the camp. Sundowner is fun up on top of the dunes overlooking the camp. Staff are friendly. The food is decent given the location. A good way to experience the desert without binning your holiday luxuries!

    Luxury in the desert

    A great experience. Check in, activities guide, sunset on the dunes was all lovely. Dinner was excellent , far exceeding our expectations. So it was a disappointing surprise when breakfast was sub par. Foods were not replenished so after the large group went through ahead of us all that was left of the cheese platter was some cello wrapped slices and empty baskets promising croissant and danish. The one other small disappointment was the way the ‘tents’ were furnished. Everything was very comfortable but modern looking. Some Arabian fabrics and carpets would have gone a long way to conjure a nomadic desert chic feeling.

    Haven in the desert

    This camp is beautiful. Although it’s hadly a traditional desert camp, that can be forgiven due to the supreme comfort of the rooms (especially the beds) and the design of the ‘tents’, all spaced out to ensure privacy. The food is very good, the facilities great (games room was a bonus) and the activities, although pricey, are worth taking advantage of. If you want to experience the dessert in comfort this is the place to come.

    Amazing location, great accommodation! The room/tent is spacious and the bathroom facilities are in good shape. The sunset watch was challenging with strong winds, but the views were great. I took a 15-min hike up to the sand dunes for sunrise, and that was gorgeous.
