After reading many reviews of many desert camps, we were very happy with our experience for one night at this camp. I think in general, you just have to adjust your expectations for this kind of experience, and you will be happier...! The location was great. Felt quite remote, but only took around 15-20 minutes to get there from the...

Not too far in, yet far enough out into the desert to feel remote - Nice big dune next to it for fantastic sunset view - Tent and property were tastefully decorated and well maintained - Nice sitting areas to chill - Relatively tasty and...

This camp is in the middle of a desert and boy it is scenic. Under a canopy of stars and surrounded by caramel coloured sand dunes, this Camp is the lap of luxury in the middle of a desert. We stayed here for one night. The rooms were quaint and comfortable. The food was excellent. We had an assortment of...

The Camp is about 2 hours drive from Muscat in the heart of Sharquiya Sands. The camp is surrounded by dunes of varying heights that gives the camp the feeling of complete isolation from the outside world. The rooms were nicely decorated to look like a traditional Omani house. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom...

It was my first stay at Sama Al Wasil Camp as a guest. We booked this camp because all other camps in Wahiba Sands stopped their operations in summer. So, I can say we made a great decision as we were the only guests in the camp and treated here as Royals! The camp itself looks as a little oasis...

Nicely set up in the sand: a large central lounge pavilion with open walls serving as a reception and the place where welcome-drinks and dates are offered, distantly surrounded by small one-room cabins with tiled floor, rough painted walls, beams and slats ceiling. Bathroom is outside of the room but still within the cabin, consisting of loo, basic shower without...

Good services, friendly people, the tents do have bathrooms now, it's nearby the big dunes that you can see in the south of the hotel, at walking distance, ideal to hike and enjoy a sunset or sunrise, and avoid the extra paying of the jeep or van drive. Good food, nice camp fire and a telescope to see the stars...

Just returned from our one night stay in the desert. We were three couples and we stayed in three of the A/C equipped Rooms which were very comfortable. The welcome we got from the staff was excellent, coffee, dates etc. There is big sand dunes behind the camp which were perfect for viewing the spectacular sunset. The dinner provided was...

I spent 2 nights in the camp in early January 2015 with my husband and the experience was fantastic. Great atmosphere: you are fully immersed in the desert and the blue sky, no noise at all, just sands, stars and cammels. The accomodation was very good: clean rooms and toilets, good food (tipical and international), nice place to have dinner...
