    It was literally 4 miles into the desert. That made it awesome. However, the ambience was negligible. The staff wore t-shirts with the company name. Some ethnic appearances and music would have added a nice touch. The food was adequate with the grilled meats tasting of charcoal. Nothing special about this place other than the location. It's really too bad. It has great potential but needs some guidance and enthusiasm

    The desert camp were not expecting us, although we had booked through Expedia. We were asked to contact the camp 48 hours before arrival and despite sending two emails asking for directions I had no response from them. Luckily the attendant at the petrol station gave us a map to find the camp. Our welcome at the camp was lukewarm and we didn’t feel that this was a true Omani desert experience.

    Un bon moment dans le désert

    Nous souhaitions passer une nuit dans le désert et être dépaysés, nous n'avons pas été déçus ! L'hotel est accessible en suivant une piste (4x4 obligatoire). Les installations sont de bonnes facture, le personnel est aidant mais s'efface pour laisser place au calme du lieu, le petit déjeuner et le diner sont inclus. Nous recommandons.

    Très bele expérience

    Très belle expérience d’héberger dans le désert ! Un accès aisé et bien indiqué sur 15 km de piste. Prestations plus que correctes compte tenu de l’emplacement :logements propres, abords sécurisés,restaurations sous forme de buffet largement suffisant. Une nuitée suffit pour faire les activités proposées : 4*4 dans les dunes, luges et ballade en chameau Je conseille !

    Chouette camp offrant des tentes et bungalows en dure au milieu du désert. Le camp est de taille acceptable (pas trop grand), très propre. Bons repas. Diner avec un petit groupe de musicien et feu de bois. Quelques activités, mais limitées: promenade en dromadaire, dune bashing, montée à pied avec corde de la dune à proximité (c'est physique mais superbe vue).

    Un havre de confort au milieu du désert

    Une halte très agréable, dans cet oasis de verdure, d'ombre et de confort, au milieu du désert. Accès aisé, avec un SUV, depuis le village de Al Wasil. C'est très bien fléché. L'observation nocturme du ciel étoilé est un peu gênée par des projecteurs hyper puissants qui éclairent inutilement les dunes voisines toute la nuit.

    Nettes Camp. Freundliches Personal. Zimmer sehr sauber. Essen (Buffett) war gut und inkl. Getränken. Anfahrt problemlos machbar. Beschilderung könnte besser sein.
