Desert Nights, Oman

Image

Desert Nights is a ‘desert experience’ but not shirking on any luxuries.

The resort is about two hours out of Muscat, a GPS is essential

as the roads are confusing in the actual desert and

we got lost for an hour (without a GPS, cell phones dying

and our only liquid a bottle of J&B! Not very clever!)

The resort itself just appears out of nowhere and is a wonderful oasis, however we were disappointed to hear, on our arrival that it was not licensed (this must have changed by now) this I felt could have been divulged when we booked.  However the food was above average and the room was nice.

Image

There were some nice finishes like beanbags, lamps and coloured glass ice bucket.

Camel rides were available as was a drive up the dune with a kamikaze driver, the serenity on the top of the dune was lovely as you contemplate how magnificent this part of the world is.

Image

I befriended a camel, who you may recognize as the ‘guy’ who adorns the top of my blog, he was great until I made a comment about how bad his teeth were, this led to a huge belly roar, he was most affronted and succeeded in scarying me silly!

Image

An enjoyable stay but a bit touristy and for me, lacked a little ‘soul’.

  1. Love the way the camel is sort of scrunching his nose up at you!
