Fancy sleeping under the stars?

The weather in the UAE is slowly transitioning back to summer, but we still have a few months of good weather, which you should take advantage of. So why not spend a weekend glamping at Jebel Hafit in Abu Dhabi, especially since Jebel Hafit Desert Park has recently opened.

Breath in fresh air and take in the stars at the new luxury hotel, which comes with a series of bubble tents fully equipped for you to spend a night stargazing while sitting around a bonfire. So take a break from your busy city life, and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is the prefect escape from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine.

The bubble tents come with a completely transparent ceiling, which takes sleeping under the stars to a whole other level. Moreover, if you are worried about rising temperatures, then you would be happy to know that the tents are air-conditioned so you are guaranteed cool air.

You’ll find yourself surrounded by stunning mountain views, and the country’s most unique archaeological gems. Jebel Hafit Desert Park is the first place in the UAE to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, containing tombs that date back to 8,000 years ago.
