Inspired by traditional Emirati heritage, Al Badayer Oasis by Mysk is the ultimate desert experience nestled in Al Badayer’s burnt-orange dunes. A perfect place for relaxing after a day of adrenaline fuelled desert excitement, guests have the option to choose from the hotel’s 21 rooms, which include 11 deluxe-king and 10 deluxe twin rooms in addition to seven 1-king bedroom and three 2-bedroom twin tent accommodations. Each accommodation is quintessentially Arabian, fitted with the best of modern comforts.

In 2017, Shurooq (Sharjah Investment and Development Authority) began an ambitious AED 130 million project to enhance Sharjah’s profile as a destination for luxury eco-tourism and its vast natural diversity through the ‘Sharjah Collection’ managed by ‘Mysk by Shaza’, a leading hotel management brand known for its vast hospitality experiences based on the region’s authentic culture and heritage. With Al Badayer Oasis now open, all three of the Sharjah Collection’s high-end boutique destinations – the Kingfisher Lodge in Kalba, Al Faya Lodge close to the Fossil Rock area in Mleiha, and Al Badayer Oasis in Al Badayer Desert – have met Shurooq’s projected two year completion timeline.

World-class dining, amenities and entertainment
Al Badayer Oasis’ 58-seater Nizwa restaurant offers authentic and traditional dishes influenced by destinations along the Silk Route, served in a contemporary and stylish setting. The all-day dining restaurant, Al Madam, can serve 88 diners at once and is a modern-day eatery serving international and regional fare in a setting that exudes a distinct local character.

The Oasis also features a luxurious indoor swimming pool as well as a state-of-the-art health club packed with amenities and operated under the supervision of professional lifeguards and trainers. A business centre, meeting rooms, direct dial phones, and voicemail are also available to meet every requirement of busy professionals. Al Badayer Oasis can be booked fully for destination weddings or other private occasions, which can be hosted at its spacious amphitheatre and courtyard areas. A 50-seater meeting room can be booked by corporates to host workshops or meetings in varied seating arrangements.

Thrilling desert activities
Al Badayer Oasis offers customised desert experiences featuring dune bashing, buggies, quad biking, horse riding, desert safaris and camel tours. Expeditions to observe wildlife in its natural state, stargazing under a clear desert night sky, and night-time theatre can also be enjoyed. Breakfast at the dunes and dinner atop the Al Bury Tower allows guests to cut-off completely from the bustle of the city and enjoy tranquillity in the lap of nature. A true taste of Emirati culture is offered to guests by arranging falcon shows and archery games, henna art, and much more.
