Canvas Club started fully operating in Oman at the end of 2015, bringing a new level of luxury to private camping experiences in the country.
Whilst locations can be flexible, the main areas where the camp can be set up include the rolling golden dunes of Wahiba Sands, the dramatic Hajar Mountains, and the beautiful coves of Ras Al Hadd.
The bedroom tents are spacious, with comfortable proper beds made up with luxurious linen. There is wonderful attention to detail in the decor, with ornate rugs, lanterns and cushions adorning the interior.
There is a separate bathroom tent. A sophisticated system allows guests to enjoy hot water showers, and there is also a wash basin which provides running water via a foot pump. There is a camping loo with a chemical flush system and the floor is lined with wooden tiles for that extra element of comfort.
The main tent, known as the majlis, is lined with beautiful Arabian designed cushions. This is the perfect place to enjoy a cool drink and a game of cards after a day's adventures. The camp cannot provide alcohol, but guests are welcome to bring their own which can be cooled and served.
The camp has its own chef who will prepare delicious evening meals which can be served in the majlis, or on tables under the stars. There is also a camp manager on hand should guests require anything.
During the day, a private driver/guide will be able to take guests to sites of interest in the surrounding area, such as ancient castles and forts in the mountains or lush green wadis on the edge of the desert. The camp can provide packed lunches if required.
There are no specific child care facilities, but families are welcome.
From the camp, guests can explore the surrounding area with their private driver/guide.
The scenery in the mountains is spectacular, and there are some fantastic walks up here. There are also ancient castles and forts, as well as pretty local villages which can be explored.
From the desert, we recommend visiting the beautiful Wadi Bani Khalid, where it is possible to swim in the deep water, or even jump in from the rocks above. We can also organize camel rides, and the drivers are always delighted to show off their dune bashing skills!
From Ras Al Hadd, guests can go to the nearby turtle reserve at Ras Al Jinz. Here you can go down to the beach in the evening or at sunrise to try and spot turtles laying their eggs in the sand, or newly-hatched babies making their way to the sea. The coastline is also very pretty and so offers a lovely setting for picnics and there are local fishing towns to visit nearby.
