Clean and neat. Fantastic food. Amazing tent, views, stars and on and on. An 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. Yes it’s rustic- raw natural planet earth with sharp contrasts between red dunes and blue sky. Thank you so much!

Fantastic. Book Starwatching private camp. There are 2 camps as part of the setup get there, one camp shared with a couple of accommodations. The other one, this one called Starwatchig, is fully private. Both are great but suggest booking the private one. Suggest booking 2 nights to really settle down. Fantastic setting, accommodation, and food. The camp is isolated, on high ground (= so much better for sunset vs. all the other built-up camps that have to be down next to the main road). Sand surfing on the dune with the kids. The food is amazing. Very much worth the trip. An experience to remember.

We drove 30 minutes through the golden dunes to find our incredible camp: 2 tents beautifully decorated with king size bed and a Bedouin tent for the meals. All surrounded with sand dunes, just sand dunes. A lovely bathroom with real toilets and a shower with warm water under the stars. Ousman, our host, was full of attention and a great cook. Our night was so romantic, peaceful and the perfect temperature. It’s definitely worth the price. We highly recommend Star Watching Private Camp!

First time in Wahiba. Everything was perfect. Food was sublime, the setting was gorgeous. There’s nothing to do, so it’s certainly your place to switch off and unwind. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to see true Oman!

My daughter was visiting me in Muscat for a week so I decided to take her to the desert for a night and booked a tent at the Starwatching Private Camp. What a special experience this was. We met the owner at the office in Bediyah and travelled in a small convoy to the camps. The drive through the desert was great fun and when we arrived at the camp it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The tents are first class, bordering on luxurious if you can get that camping in the desert. The food was brilliant and we didn’t want for anything. The sunset has to be experienced and this is followed by a sky packed with stars. When I have other family and friends out, I will most definitely be back.
