Rising from the desert of the Al Sharqiya Governorate, the Desert Palms Camp opening in November for its first season is a new important addition to the touristic landmarks in the country.
Now undergoing the final stages of construction, it will provide guests and visitors a new way to enjoy the Al Sharqiya Governorate that is usually a tourist hub in the cold season bringing them closer to nature and making it easier to access one of Oman’s fascinating deserts.
The administration of Desert Palms Camp announced that the construction works already exceeded 98%. They added that the project will provide high-quality tourism services that meet the conditions and specifications set by the Ministry of Tourism.
The three-star resort includes 4 chalets and 27 multi-shaped rooms. The design was inspired by the local environment of the desert in its various forms. It also includes a swimming pool attached to a sports club, admin accommodation, a mini-meeting room and a private residence for Omani youth working in transporting tourists, a kitchen, a laundry room, in addition to multiple halls for meetings. The Camp also has a good surveillance system, and it is decorated with palm trees on both sides of the entrance.
The project will make a qualitative leap in tourism services in line with the growing development in the tourism sector in the Sultanate. It is expected to contribute to increasing the tourist traffic in Sharqiya sands and improving the current services in cooperation with the competent authorities at the Ministry of Tourism which is keen to invest and encourage the establishment of development projects to diversify the sector and diversify its programmes for tourists, especially during the winter season.
