Desert Adventures Await!

Embark on a drive into the heart of the desert. Begin your day with a comfortable pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 vehicle to the Fossil Rock, a film-favorite location lauded for its Mars-like landscapes. Engage in exhilarating desert activities like sandboarding, led by experienced convoy leaders. As the sun begins to set, you'll be led to a rustic-themed dining setup in the heart of the desert complete with traditional carpet, cushions, and a low table.

Dine Under the Stars

In the tranquility of the desert night, find yourself amidst an Arabian fairytale. Breathe in the aromatic smoke of the Shisha and relish traditional Arabic coffee and dates as the stars begin to twinkle. A crackling campfire adds to the cozy atmosphere as a mouthwatering BBQ dinner is prepared exclusively for you. The Fossil Rock Desert, home to marine fossils dating back 80 million years, offers a unique backdrop for this intimate dinner. Also, keep an eye out for the local camel breeding farm, a testament to the region's rich Bedouin heritage.
