This is desert glamping at its finest—a boutique pop-up Bedouin camp that blends seamlessly into the jaw-dropping surroundings of Jordan’s legendary Wadi Rum desert. Paired with the Bedouins’ trademark hospitality, this isn’t just a place to stay. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Journey four hours south of Amman on the Desert Highway and you’ll find yourself at the foot of the Wadi Rum ‘Valley of the Moon’. It’s around this red cliff-top that your private desert camp will be erected, although the exact spot depends on where the Bedouins perceive the best spot is that day. The remote location means you’ll have no choice but to disconnect from the real world. However, with a choice of camel rides, sand boarding, hiking, star gazing and 4 x 4 rides, you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied.
Don’t worry if camping isn’t normally your thing. Eco-friendly but luxurious, here everything is tailored to give you an authentic experience without compromising on comfort. The main source of power is solar, with oil lanterns, candles and torches lighting the evenings and adding to the magical atmosphere. Even in the middle of the desert you’ll have an en-suite bathroom complete with hot water and lux Dead Sea toiletries. The nine crisp-white tented suites reflect the traditional style of the Bedouin people, with earth-coloured hardwood floors, copper washbasins and beautiful linens. Heaters and blankets are also on hand to keep you warm at night beneath the canopy of twinkling stars.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Remote. Beautiful. Authentic. You might have to pinch yourself more than a few times. This is the place to get away from it all and experience nomadic life in the Jordanian outdoors that has remained unchanged for centuries. We also love ‘The Desert Culinary’, an authentic Bedouin feast of barbeque roasted meats and vegetables flavoured with traditional herbs and spices. We can think of no better way to dine than against a backdrop of sand dunes, canyons and expansive skies.
