Fall asleep under the stars in a luxury bubble in the Dubai desert
Fancy a weekend away but don't want to travel too far? Then this Dubai desert staycation is the perfect trip for you.
Whether you’re a camping novice or an experienced pitcher, this bubble-like tent with amazing views of the stars is located in the heart of Dubai's desert.
Starlight Camp UAE is a luxurious camping experience in a 30 square metre bubble tent.
It comes complete with a queen size bed, outdoor lounge, telescope for stargazing, dining area, BBQ, kitchen utensils, toilet, shower, Bluetooth speaker and electricity.
But its main attraction is its see-through crystal roof, which means you’ll feel like you’re sleeping under the stars.
It's dog-friendly too, so you can bring your four-legged pets along.
Hosts Fabienne and Urs Eiselin will take care of everything in advance, so there is no need to spend hours messing around with the camping equipment.
The pair will take you to the camp in a 4×4 and if you arrive early enough, you can take advantage of the desert walk where camels, gazelles and Oryxes roam.
Now for the important part. How much does it cost? Well, surprisingly not as much as you might think.
A one-night stay costs Dhs1800 for two people which also includes complimentary soft drinks, tea, coffee and breakfast.
Just don't forget warm clothes, temperatures in the desert can drop to 10 degrees in the evening.
