Canvas Club Desert Camp

Canvas Club offers private, authentic tents in the heart of the Wahiba Sands, with local Bedouin staff taking great pride in showcasing their unique region. Arrive by 4x4, travel by camel and watch the sunset with a drink before arriving at your private camp to stargaze and do nothing but enjoy the sounds of the singing desert dunes.

Your camp consists of a bedroom tent, the Majilis for relaxation and bathing tent

With handmade rugs, solar lighting and candles avoiding the need for generators plus a traditional open sided communal tent for meals – Canvas Club is the perfect spot exploring the desert, reading, chatting with friends and family under the brightest of starry skies. The tents are stylish and comfortable, all having access to large bathroom tents. The private chef will prepare an authentic Omani dinner over an open fire while guests enjoy a drink. The camp is always a private set up for a group of family or friends.


Canvas Club is found in the heart of the Wahiba Sands, a three-hour drive from Muscat. Away from other camps and free of the need for electricity, it avoids light pollution and gives a genuine feel of desert remoteness. The camp operates from early October to April.


Canvas Club is made up of a collection of 15 square metre king size and 20 square metre family tents, a camp manger to look after clients’ needs and an experienced team on hand taking care of your candle lit dinner, showing you a local wadi and keeping your traditional, kiln fabric decorated tent tidy and comfortable.

  • Sunset drinks with Arabic snacks and drinks
  • Three course candle lit dinners
  • Full cooked breakfast
  • All drinks (soft)
  • Locally sourced food


Stay just one night to immerse yourself in desert life, or allow yourself the luxury of time and stay another. The day is typically spent enjoying the desert peace or venturing off to meet a local Bedouin family or visit a wadi such as Wadi Bani Khalid.

  • Camel riding
  • Custom made desert sand boards
  • Desert telescope
  • 4x4 for excursion if staying longer
