  1. I have to say that camel riding is definitely on my bucket list so a desert vacation sounds great. I have heard that camel riding can be a bit uncomfortable at first but I am always up for trying something new!

  2. Great travel post! I’ve been to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but didn’t get to do a bunch of things you’ve listed here! I guess it means I must go back soon!

  3. Now that is an adventure I’d love to take… I’ve never hitched a ride on a camel so that would be a first too.

  4. What an amazing adventure! Everything from the camels .. to kite flying .. to a dip in the pool sound like so much fun. Although I have to say, most of all I’d love to see a desert sunset. Your photo is amazing .. way to go Mother Nature! x

  5. I have never seen a camel up close. A desert adventure would be a dream! I love the swimming pool too. Whoever designed it was really a good architect.

  6. I have never had a ‘desert holiday’ before but camel riding has always been on my bucket list. I love that not only can you visit a camel farm but you can also see a sunset in the desert too x

  7. This looks so amazing. Your pictures look great. Kind of reminds me of Laurence of Arabia or the English Patient. Those two films made the dessert look beautiful. These pictures do as well.

  8. I always want to do camel riding in my life and the pictures wanted to go there and explore more stuff there, all pics are amazingly clicked by you, indeed a good photographer.

  9. That looks like a great staycation you had there! I’d love to do quad biking and do the star gazing tour in the desert! Sounds so interesting.

  10. Looks like an amazing stay in the dessert. I can only imagine the look being in the pool surrounded by desert all around you. And then the food sounds amazing. I am always up to try different ethnic foods.

  11. What a wonderful dessert my dream is riding on a camel and enjoy watching the sunset. If I travel to Dubai I will do the things that you say

  12. {Sigh} Oh my gosh, I love to travel and this place looks simply divine. The photo with just your toes relaxing in the hammock has me daydreaming of my next trip which won’t be until December, but I’ll have to revisit and live through your lovely blog post until then.
