Glamping in Abu Dhabi: rough it in luxury in the desert

Spend a night in style underneath the stars with these glamping sites in Abu Dhabi.

There so many adventures awaiting to be discovered in the desert and right at the top of that list is a stunning glamping site in Abu Dhabi.

But just because you are in the wilderness, does not mean you should go without those all-important home comforts.

Therefore, Team Yalla has rounded up some of the best glamping sites in Abu Dhabi to experience.





You barely have to leave the city’s outer limits to take your camping trip to the next level.

Cross the bridge to Al Hudayriyat Island and luxe it up in a duplex queen chalet replete with an al fresco plunge pool.

Indoors in the lap of luxury, stay cool with a temperature-controlled AC unit as you relax under a rather cosy duvet as your head sinks into a perfectly plumped pillow on one of the queen-sized beds.

If you are, however, looking for that authentic desert experience, you could choose to spend the night in a converted Volkswagon Transporter, or a Waghi, and enjoy the hippie life at this glamping site in Abu Dhabi.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and be one of the first people to truly disconnect among nature at Al Mugheirah Resort.

The newly opened second location of Bab Al Nojoum takes you on a journey to Mirfa, 160km west of Abu Dhabi city where you get to spend the night in a spacious cabin suite with its own private plunge pool and firepit to roast those marshmallows as you stargaze from the comfort of your sun lounger on the patio. There’s even free WiFi.

Or experience the traditional Al Ain way with an evening in a Bedouin-inspired tent before enjoying a hike, camel ride or an exploration of the area’s archaeological and historical remains.
