Starwatching Private Camp

Your dream getaway beneath the stars

Nestled in the sprawling Wahiba Sands of Oman, the luxurious Starwatching Private Camp is your ideal location for a comfortable, yet authentic experience in the desertscape. Established in 2017, the prestigious camp has made its mark as one of the most iconic desert hotels by setting a new standard for opulence.

Spending a night at one of our inimitable camps at the Sharqiyah Sands Desert will give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience of absolute luxury in the breathtakingly haunting desert environment surrounded by the dramatic vistas of sweeping dunes, as we provide you with a superior level of hospitality as the premier Private Desert Camping Company in Oman.

Each camp setup comes with one or two rooms as preferred, allowing you to step back through history and sample an authentic taste of the life of ancient Bedouins, while also enjoying the best amenities on offer. We strive to soar beyond the offerings of a typical hotel to give you a lavish treatment steeped in the rich history and gracious hospitality of Omani culture at our desert camps.

This Omani culture is at the heart of everything we do, represented in the nature-inspired decoration of our tents and rooms – which blend modern and historic elements – as well as the flair of our staff.

Starwatching Private Camp

The Camp houses 2 tents: 1 Starwatching Standard Tent and 1 Traditional Tent.

This Camp is ideal for a group of friends or small families, or those who would like to enjoy their space in privacy, in our non-crowded Desert Camping setup, for a maximum of up to 5 people.

ShootingStar Private Camp

The Camp houses 2 all-natural chalets built from palm fronds, providing a uniquely traditional, secluded experience that also offers an especially magnificent view of the sunrise and sunset. It also houses 1 Starwatching Private Tent, complete with a separate sitting-room and bathroom, that is ideal for a couple’s private vacation.

This Camp is ideal for a maximum of up to 5-6 people.

Private Desert Bedouin House (featuring arrival by camel)

This Camp aims to provide an unmatchably traditional and comfortable service for couples and small families up to a maximum of 3 people, being atop the dunes, built entirely from palm fronds and managed by Bedouin women.

This Camp is reached through a 1.5/2-hour camel ride.


Each tent is decorated in antique-styled furniture and lush Iranian carpetry, lit by solar-powered lamps and atmospheric candles, and features a twin or queen-size bed.


The living rooms/sitting-areas, called the Majlis, feature custom-designed sitting furniture for a homely, vintage feel, alongside rich carpentry and solar-powered lighting for a cosy ambience and traditional feel. With an opening in the front for a soothing breeze to roll in, the Majlis are a perfect place to repose beneath the sprawling vista of stars after a hearty dinner, or to meditate, do yoga, or just relax during the day.

Best for dining

The Camps also feature an outdoor dining area that allow for truly unique candlelit dinners, as well as a campfire spot for warm gatherings on colder nights.

Tips to remember when visiting Oman

  • Oman is quite proud of its traditional culture, which can be quite different to typical Western countries. Omanis tend to value family above all else, and may not behave as expected in some interactions, which is why we advise visitors to exercise some patience, instead of  expecting things to go the same as they would back at home.
  • Please inform us about all specific details of your travel arrangements so that we can make the necessary arrangements and give you the best possible experience.
  • Trip schedules may change according to Government regulations and weather issues; while we will inform you about any changes beforehand, we ask that you take this into consideration.
