You’re missing out if you’ve never pitched a tent in the UAE desert. The popularity of camping has greatly increased over the past few years in the UAE, with campaholics choosing to either take the traditional route and pitch up camp themselves or go the glamping route and stay in one of the trailers in Hatta. If you prefer glamping you’ll undoubtedly adore these new bubble tents.
Docked in the Arabian desert, about one and a half hours from Dubai and Abu Dhabi, The Starlight Camp is a company which provides non-permanent camp, at a remote area exclusively for you and your special someone. Exciting? Read on for all the deets!

The rooms are equipped with a king size bed with curtains for privacy and comfy duvet, a unique wash basin with mirror and many other carefully chosen amenities. The rooms also have air-conditioning and heater, depending on the season. Of course you will find your private washroom with toilet and shower in your private camp. The camp is designed to accommodate a maximum of two adults and two kids, there is no door between master and kids room.
Besides, the camp is equipped with a BBQ facility and dinnerware to prepare your own dishes. They also offer different dinner options which you can find in detail in the booking section.
The way it works is very simple. You will be questioned about your preferred location when you book your session (if not, then they can suggest places). You will be picked up and driven to the secluded campsite (no neighbors around), which includes a lounge, bonfire, grilling equipment, telescope, and free breakfast. In essence, everything you could possibly want will be at your disposal. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, what could be more romantic than a private outing with your significant other.
