Dunes by Al Nahda, Wadi Al Abyad, Oman, 502 Abyaḑ, Oman [View Map]


ETIC silver rating

6.6 / 10

Dunes by Al Nahda is situated in Wadi Al Abiyad, along the path of Wadi Mistal and the renowned Wakan village trek. It is the closest desert camp to downtown Muscat and the United Arab Emirates, providing guests with the convenience of experiencing the desert right at their doorstep. Wadi Al Abiyad, located in the South Batinah region, offers a pleasant hiking trail, refreshing water pools, and abundant palm trees on both sides of the wadi. The name Wadi Al Abiyad comes from the Arabic word for "White," which signifies its white sandy terrain. The property boasts 30 exquisitely designed tent-style rooms that are equipped with private en suite bathrooms, individually controlled air conditioning, and breathtaking views of the dunes. Guests can indulge in a unique desert experience by dining under the stars at the open-air restaurant. The nearest airport, Seeb, is 64 km away from Dunes by Al Nahda, and the property provides complimentary transfers upon request.
