Wahiba Sands

Call 01242 547 918 to speak to a specialist Enquire


The 'Wahiba Sands' often described as a perfect example of a Sand Sea consist of large dunes running from North to South, some attaining a height of about 100 metres. Made famous by the exploits of Wilfred Thesiger, the Wahiba Sands are an opportunity to experience the sheer vastness of the desert wilderness and a night to remember with a sumptuous dinner while seated on Bedouin carpets and under the star-studded sky.

Guest Testimonial

We particularly appreciated the friendly staff, who got the professional/casual balance just right; the magnificent breakfast spread; the wafts of frankincense; the sunsets; the sheer relaxation provided by the spa; the library; the open fire; the gym that made room for breakfast and, not least, the alcohol licence!
