Magic Camps - Wahiba Sands
Why We Love This Hotel
Remote Location: Magic Camps - Wahiba Sands is situated right in the heart of Sharqiya Sands, a 40-minute drive from the nearest road. This seclusion immerses visitors in desert life and guests can enjoy a peaceful retreat in the "middle of nowhere."
Sustainability: Magic Camps has a number of eco-friendly and responsible initiatives, including minimal plastic use, solar and battery energy rather than using a generator, eco bath amenities and choosing local products, especially in design. Quad bikes and dune buggies are forbidden, as the camp aims to emulate an authentic desert experience akin to Bedouin nomads, who leave no trace in their environment.
Chic Design: Remote, authentic and sustainable doesn't mean that design can't be fresh, contemporary and homely. Decor uses neutral-toned palettes, juxtaposing textures (many from natural materials and artisan detailing such as textiles and weaving) and a distinct "rustic chic" theme.

Luxury Bedroom Tent
The luxury bedroom tents cover 220 square feet, with a diameter of 20 feet and a height of 10 feet. Bedding can be configured with either a double bed or two twin beds, and maximum capacity is three adults or two adults and two children under 12 years. A private bathroom tent is located next door, which includes a portable toilet, eco-friendly amenities (soap, shower gel and shampoo), a basin, as well as Indian terracotta jars with hot and cold water, provided for washing and showering.
The shared space at the heart of the camp is the cozy majlis, furnished with Berber rugs, hanging lanterns, comfy seating and sprawling foliage. Nearby is a campfire. Here, guests can meet other travelers, swap stories and watch performances by Bedouin musicians.
Choose between dining with other guests for social mealtimes or dining solely with your travel companion in a more intimate setting. Either option will see you seat at a rustic table lit by candles, with romantic floating lanterns hanging overhead.

Smugglers run goods to Iran, oil tankers rest on the Strait of Hormuz, and dolphins swim bright, coral waters surrounded by arid cliffs. This is Khasab.
