MUSCAT - Good news to all travel and adventure enthusiasts. Oman Travel Mart, the international travel and tourism event of the year, will bring together under one roof numerous travel and tourism destinations in and around the region.
Scheduled to be held from February 17 to 19 at the Oman International Exhibition Centre, “OTM provides travelers, adventure seekers, as well as families with numerous tourist attractions not only in the country but across the region”, said Atif Khan, Sr. Manager at Oman International Trade & Exhibitions (OITE), the event organizer.
Desert Nights Camp, the country’s only provider of luxury camp accommodation in the desert is one of the travel and tourism hotspots at OTM. It is a unique feature within Oman’s hospitality sector which has already received many positive reviews from international travel agents and travel publications.
Althaf Mohamed Ali, Head of Operations at Desert Night LLC said “Our objective in participating at OTM is to further enhance the exposure of this unique hospitality product among the local as well as the wider GCC markets. We believe that OTM is an ideal forum to further popularize the concept of luxury accommodation in the desert now available for the first time in the Sultanate of Oman”.
Situated in Al Wasil town, which is a two hour drive away from Muscat, Desert Nights Camp is sprawled across 10-acres of silken sands, secluded 11km within the vast isolation of the Omani desert. Accommodation comprises 30 luxurious Bedouin style tents especially designed for individuals seeking an ultimate desert adventure.
Desert Nights Camp offers a complete luxury concept inclusive of a host of value-added services, such as complimentary pick-up and drop services from Al Wasil town.
An oasis of golden sands and spectacular open spaces, Desert Nights Camp is a unique getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. “Everyone will love the experience of indulging in the desert and the adventure of a lifetime, which includes camel rides, dune bashing and quad bike riding; romantic sunset over the desert skyline, magical nights around the flickering glow of the campfire. Desert Nights Camp is packed with sports and recreational facilities and offers unparalleled comfort and pampering to every discerning traveler,” Ali said.
“Given the increasing competitiveness within the travel and leisure sector, we are convinced that unique products such as Desert Nights Camp, which offers an extraordinary holiday experience, will become increasingly popular. As such, adventure, cultural and educational tourism are expected to be at the forefront of the travel industry within the next 2 to 5 years,” Ali added.
Showcasing both inbound and outbound tourism destinations, OTM offers a wide range of travel and tourism opportunities, medical tourism, property and investment tourism.
