Where to Stay

The 6 Most Luxurious Spots for Glamping in Wadi Rum

You’ve probably heard the term “glamping,” right? It has become popular over the last few years as some of us realized that while we like the Great Outdoors, we aren’t willing to sacrifice our bodies to do so. I’m personally one of those travelers: gimme a comfortable place to sleep and a flushing toilet, and I’m up for any adventure.

Luckily, gone are the days when you have to rough it to visit Jordan. I don’t judge you at all if you miss those days – but I do wonder how you wound up on this article. Wadi Rum is one great example of Jordan embracing a range of travelers; there are now some incredible luxury stays in the country’s famous desert. You’ll still be camping – technically – but we can all agree you’ll actually be glamping in Wadi Rum if you stay at one of these spots.

Hasan Zawaideh Camp

Best Wadi Rum Camps - Hasan Zawaideh Camp

Hasan Zawaideh Camp, with a privileged location, is one of the best options for glamping in Wadi Rum. The camp sits at the edge of Wadi Rum’s protected areas, allowing visitors to enjoy the desert’s pristine wilderness by just stepping outside their tents.

Hasan Zawaideh Camp has a wide variety of tents. The most luxurious is the Martian Tents; cozy domes with an all-glass front and decorated with oriental carpets and colorful bed covers. At night, the Martian Tents offer unobstructed views of the starry sky. So visitors can go to sleep while admiring Wadi Rum’s pitch dark sky.

In the evenings, the staff prepares authentic, freshly prepared Bedouin dishes and invites guests to sit around the campfire and taste them. 

Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp

Wadi Rum Night Camp boasts twenty-five fully gorgeous luxury tents for anyone who wants to experience the magic of the Jordanian desert. All tents showcase exquisite design, blending traditional Arabian touches with the comfort of modern times. 

The Full of Stars experience includes a stay at the bubble tents; cozy domes that offer a sprawling view of the Wadi Rum Mountains. The bubble tents also have a private terrace where visitors can relax while taking in the vast surroundings or watching the stars at night. 

Visitors can also book the luxury tents. These Bedouin-style tents (bland and white striped rectangular tents) are larger and suitable for families or large groups. They feature hand-made furniture, a Bedouin sofa, mirrors, lamps, and the finest bed linens. The only downside of staying in Bedouin tents is that they don’t feature large windows, which means visitors will miss out on the view. 

Sun City Camp

Sun City Camp Review - Interior

Sun City Camp was one of the Wadi Rum glamping experience pioneers; it’s also the only place I’ve stayed in Wadi Rum because I enjoy it so much. Despite their years in the market, they’ve known how to reinvent themselves, and today, they offer the Martian Domes and Bedouin Tents for those who want to combine luxury and adventure. 

The Martian domes are comfortable, fitting a queen or two twin beds. They feature a full bathroom, a small kitchenette with a mini-fridge and coffee maker, plus a closet. As the cherry on top, they have cozy terrace seating. 

The Bedouin Tents are pretty much the same, featuring all the standard amenities. The Martian Domes and Bedouin Tents have a large window at the front facing the desert. 

Sun City Camp also has a giant dome that serves traditional Zarb dinner each night. Plus, there’s a bar area to order tea and coffee. 

Wadi Rum Bubble Luxotel

A true touch of luxury in the desert, Wadi Rum Bubble Luxotel knows how to glamp the right way. This stunning camp offers the popular bubble tents. The bubble tents have a transparent roof beside the large window at the front. The staff takes off the cover at around 4 pm so that you can go to sleep (literally) under the stars. They also feature a deck with a hot tub to relax and enjoy your surroundings. 

Unlike other sites, this Wadi Rum luxury camp only has bubble tents. They vary in size and price. Visitors can choose from the Bubble Suites, Bubble Suite King, Bubble Suite Twin, and the Family Bubble. All rooms come with breakfast and dinner included, except for the Bubble Suite Twin. 

Wadi Rum UFO Luxotel

Wadi Rum UFO Luxotel has designed an extraordinary experience in the desert. This camp offers Pods, which mainly vary in size. Visitors can choose from the Joiner Suite Pod King, Family pods, and Joiner Suite Pod twin. All pods are pretty similar. They are spacious and offer panoramic mountain views thanks to the large window at the front. 

There’s also a private bathroom with a bidet in every unit, slippers, a hairdryer, and free toiletries. Each pod sits on a deck and has a terrace with seating. At night, the staff serves a lavish Bedouin dinner. There’s a lot of variety – enough to satisfy the fussiest eater. Buffet dinner and breakfast come with the Joiner Suite Pod King and Family pods. 

Memories Aicha Luxury Camp

Memories Aicha Luxury Camp takes glamping in Wadi Rum to another level. First, this camp has distributed the domes and tents to resemble a little space colony in the middle of Mars. The domes feature a metallic exterior, which enhances the outer space atmosphere even more. The decoration inside the domes is truly exquisite, evoking Islamic architecture in every detail. 

Visitors will find elaborate furniture, radiant colors, symmetrical silhouettes, and rich patterns. The domes also feature a private deck and a transparent roof to watch thousands of stars at night right from your bed. 

Memories Aicha Luxury Camp also offers luxury tents, which can accommodate three guests and come with a living room. The tents come with en-suite bathrooms, showers, and air conditioning.

While this list might not include as many properties as others you’ll find when searching on Google, I think you’ll agree that these all offer the highest standard of comfort. They really bring the glam into glamping in Wadi Rum, and you can’t go wrong no matter which one you choose. (If you’ve reviewed these and decided that maybe glamping in Wadi Rum isn’t for you, I also have a list of the best Wadi Rum camps too.)
