Luxury boutique desert spa and golf resort – A paradise in the enigmatic Sands of Oman!

Only an hour and a quarter drive from Muscat International Airport and the bustling city of Muscat, you will discover a magical world where time stands still. Welcome to Dunes by Al Nahda, the closest desert resort to Muscat and the United Arab Emirates!

In the Wadi Al Abiyad sand dunes (White Sands in Arabic), and nestled atop one of the tallest, Dunes by Al Nahda is an intimate, luxury, boutique desert resort offering unrivalled views over the surrounding undulating dunes and mountains in the background. Come share our views in this unique setting, whilst discovering a luxury adventure. Come discover the Magic.

Dunes by Al Nahda features a total of 50 ultra-luxury accommodation guest bedroom tents, distributed in 30 guest tents, each featuring: full en-suite bathrooms, separate seating areas and individually controlled air-conditioning.

Our open air restaurant, Fleur, gives guests the opportunity to dine al fresco and enjoy a full desert experience. Treat yourself to a rich breakfast with the family, a re-energizing lunch after dune bashing or a romantic dinner for two, all with unparalleled views of an Oman desert landscape. It is also the perfect setting for a drink at sunset, watching the striking soft hues of light and colour change, as the sun disappears below the horizon.

Jump start your stay with quad biking, to then relax in the unique experience of a sand spa. Build a sand castle with your children or fly a kite in the crisp blue skies with the help of the soft desert breeze. Settle in with a good book from our library or enjoy a film on your flat screen in-room LED TV.

After an exhilarating, adrenaline rush filled day dune bashing, gliding down the dunes on one of our sand boards, or playing a round of golf on our exclusive on-site 09 hole bunker golf course, you deserve to enjoy your comfortable bed and cloud soft sheets.

For your office, occasion and social events, Dunes by Al Nahda also features a natural light, formal banquet facility which is divisible in 2 and can take a maximum capacity of up to 160 people.

Dunes by Al Nahda, the dunes at your doorstep!


Wadi Al Abiyad’s sand dunes remain pristine and wild, and all care is being taken to maintain the unspoilt beauty of the surrounding nature. They are the dunes of choice for exhilarating experiences and are a favourite among the Omani locals, families and expatriates for days out, night grills and adventure seeking experiences.

Dunes by Al Nahda Resort is set to welcome all guests, residential and non-residential alike who wish to discover the magic!
