Sonara Camp

A desert dining and overnight experience bringing refined, eco-conscious dining to the Arabian sands.

The embodiment of an Arabian Night, dine under a canopy of stars as food is served by a world-class chef combining classic Arabian fare with an East-meets-West twist with dishes such as; lamb chops marinated with kaffir, sweet spices and mint and grass-fed Angus beef oyster blade steak served with arugula chimichurri.

Throughout the evening diners enjoy a host of activities and entertainment, from live music and fire shows to falconry and a star-gazing sessions. After dinner lounge at the outdoor cinema or head to the lounge bar for a nightcap, where tipples are served overlooking the towering red sand dunes. Also expect to get up close to nature, with wild oryx and gazelles roaming around. 

The camp is nestled in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve only 40 minutes from Dubai. Head to a designated desert meeting point to make your way to the camp via camel or SUV.  Sonara also offers a momadic camping experience for guests who want to continue their night in the desert.
