There's no need to pitch your own tent with these luxury spots

Five top places to go glamping in the UAE
Sedr Trailers Resort

Dubai and the UAE has some amazing scenery and geography to explore. From rolling deserts and dunes to mountains and the sea, there's so much to do in the great outdoors. But if you love the idea of camping but not so much the pitching your tent and sleeping on the floor, then glamping is for you. Here are five awesome spots to check out if you like the sound of a little luxury on your next holiday or weekend.

Al Badayer Oasis
Built to resemble a roadside inn (or caravanserai) for weary travellers, this recent opening is gorgeous to look at and houses ten of the best kitted out tents you’re likely to find. You didn’t get 55in smart TVs and free wi-fi on the Silk Road, eh?
From Dhs1,250 a night (one-bedroom tent). Al Badayer, Sharjah (06 556 0777).

Caravana Alzorah
A coastal campsite with its own private beach, comfy vans, outdoor cinema, hot tub and even the offer of room service, this Ajman haven is a far cry from the tacky seaside parks you’d find in Blighty. There’s no clubhouse, bingo or awful house band here, just rolling dunes and beautiful sunsets.
From Dhs1,265 a night (three-berth caravan). Alzorah Beach, Ajman (055 644 2022).

Sedr Trailers Resort
Book yourself one of the 13 shiny metal American-style airstream trailers and revel in the marvellous mountain scenery (especially from the viewing deck). As it’s run by Meraas, there just had to be an on-site food truck, or fire up the barbie for some DIY dinner.
From Dhs698 a night (two sharing – or two adults and two kids under eight). Hatta, Dubai (800 637 227).

The Starlight Camp UAE
For a romantic retreat with that personalised touch it’s hard to beat this pop-up glamping experience. A crystal-topped tent and fantastic facilities await the most swooning of stargazers. The location is so secret they’ll take you there handcuffed and blindfolded (just kidding).
From Dhs1,940 per tent, per night. Near Dubai (050 345 5358).

The Longbeach Campground
With five levels of luxury to choose from you can really ramp up the glamping at this seasonal, two-days-a-week beach camp. The panoramic dome suite tent comes with its own hot tub but even if you go for the more basic version, you’ll still have a great sea view.
From Dhs599 per twin berth tent per night (half board). King Faisal Street, Ras Al Khaimah (800 5700).
