Our Story

How we create our lifetime project

Beyond the scenes…

 

ONE IDEA – OUR VISION – THE BIG CHALLENGE …

 

With many years of experience and studies of our guests requirements and listen to their wishes, we had the vision to build something

EXTRAORDINARY-THE DIFFERENT

– we want the REAL desert experience – AUTHENTIC tradition – not a tourist attraction 
Guest satisfaction and to fulfil any of their expectations wasn’t the challenge , as our background is hotel and hospitality to understand customer care. 

THE REAL CHALLENGE WAS, TO FIND THE RIGHT LOCATION AND TO FACE THE VAGARIES OF NATURE 

A location,

  • protected from the regular desert winds 
  • amazing dune view for sunset and sunrise
  • easy to reach with camels 
  • hidden from main roads
  • quiet and with privacy for our guests stay and relaxation
  • enough far from the village to enjoy much stargazing with less light pollution
  • still with a good connection to the bedouin community for safety

WHAT YOU CAN ENJOY NOW , WAS A LONGTERM-EXPERIENCE OF HARD WORK .

 

THE START

It took us more than 10 days to clean the camp ground from bushes and to level the area

Without our hardworking team, that place wouldn’t be what it is now…            

A PARADISE ON EARTH     

Much appreciate – we are proud of our team!     

MANY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU

 

All begun with the hard way to find the right tents.

Nothing suits our requirements, so we start to tailor them in a tent factory in Sharjah UAE.

 

 

First we ordered square tents and brought them from UAE in November, but the material shrinks from the heat of the sun and we couldn’t use them

 

 

We returned the tents and gave them a new order to tailor a new style of tents in the beginning of December 2016.

The work suppose to be finished after 10 days… but it takes much longer time…

 

 

What we get after 6 weeks….

2 wrong tailored tents with a to large roof and wrong windows

 

 

We brought them all the way back…

Again 7 hours drive…

To UAE and let them fix it on spot

 

 

In the meanwhile we fixed the Kitchen

 

 

And the MAJLIS 

 

 

And the Toilet

 

 

 

And the Dining Area 

 

 

On 13. of January the new tents arrived and finally get fixed….

 

We were looking for a round shaped carpet , but in Bediyah almost not possible 

So we created own own carpeting 😉 

And most important, we put stones around all setups to safe the tents, Majlis, kitchen and toilet from the wind digging out the sand 

 

On 21. February 2017 we greet our first guest at Starwatching Private Camp 

 

For the new season October 2017 we build a new washroom with natural stones and Areesh
