If you still haven’t been to Jebel Hafit, it’s time to add it to your list. And there is no better time to visit, now that Jebel Hafit Desert Park has opened.
The new luxury hotel comes with a series of bubble tents fully equipped for you to spend a night stargazing under the night sky.
With the temperatures slowly starting to climb, it’s time to plan your visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city-life in Dubai – or any city for that matter. The newly constructed campsite is sat on a nine-kilometre stretch at the base of Jebel Hafit (Abu Dhabi’s tallest mountain), and is just a two-hour drive from Dubai.
You’ll find yourself surrounded by stunning mountain views for your entire stay. The bubble tents have a transparent ceiling, allowing you to literally sleep under the stars. And if you’re worried about temperatures rising indoors during the night, not to worry, the tents are air conditioned.
A stay here also means you will be surrounded by some of the world’s most unique archaeological gems. Jebel Hafit Desert Park was the first place in the UAE to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its tombs dating back 8,000 years ago.
When you’re not stargazing your way through the night, the Jebel Hafit Desert Park offers a wide variety of activities for you to get into. You can explore the mountain whichever way you prefer: on wheels, on foot, or (if you’re looking to go all the way traditional, on a camel).
