There are countless ways to go out camping in Dubai, but there’s something magical about camping in the desert. Have you ever stayed in a bubble right in the middle of the desert? Well now’s your chance to tick that off your bucket list.
The Starlight Camp is a pop-up experience which gets set up in the desert about 45 minutes from Dubai Airport. It offers guests the chance to sleep in a dome tent with amazing views of the sky above. It's super exclusive as there's only one tent and the entire campsite is set up for each visitor, so you'll have complete privacy and everything you need for a luxury staycation, including space for your dog.
The campsite is non-permanent, which means guests can pick a location when they book. They'll then be led to their tent, or taken there in a 4x4. It may look like a bubble, but the tent itself is a 30 sq m crystal roof tent made to watch the stars at night, inclusive of a queen size bed with curtains for privacy plus a comfy duvet.
Outside the tent guests will find a stylish lounge with a campfire, barbecue facilities for campers to whip up their own food, dinnerware, and there’s even a telescope for all the stargazers. Inside the suite, there's a heater to keep things cosy as desert temperatures can fall to less than 10°C. You will also find wooden-enclosed camping-style shower and toilet, wash basin with mirror, Bluetooth speaker, electricity and other selected amenities.
Want to bring the kids? They can bed-down in small mattresses next to the main bed or they can have their very own mini-tent just next door.
Hosts of the Starlight Camp UAE Fabienne and Urs Eiselin will also provide soft drinks, coffee and tea, along with snacks and some breakfast items free of charge. If you’re looking for a romantic, guests can also put in special dining requests.
And, not only is it Awesome, it's also contributing to support the K9 Friends rescue doggies too!
For every three nights booked, Starlight Camp will sponsor a K9 Friends dog - amazing!
Spend the afternoon wandering untouched dunes and keep an eye out for camels, gazelles and the occasional Arabian oryx. With endless desert, there's unlimited walks for your furry friend, and kids can enjoy a scavenger hunt where the treasures are buried in the sand. At night, a pre-prepared bonfire makes the ideal campfire, surrounded by flaming torches and glowing spheres. All the BBQ equipment you might need is provided so all you have to do is bring whatever you want to grill and get cooking.
After a night under the stars, tuck into a picnic breakfast of fresh juice, pastries, pretzels and more, along with a morning cup of coffee from the Illy machine.
Think we just found you the perfect Valentine’s Day getaway.
