http://winnstlaundry.com/proin-sodales-quam-nec-ante-sollicits/ Wadi Sharm Resort is in the perfect location for exploring Buraimi. At AED250+ a night you really can’t go wrong. We stayed here as it was still a bit humid in the evening for camping and as there was a group of us just needing a bed with A/C for the night Wadi Sharm came up trumps.
Although we weren’t camping, we noticed the resort had BBQ facilities and so made the most of this by bringing our own meat and salads while the hotel provided the hot coals for us to cook ourselves. I guess you could call this one step up from glamping.
We never managed to try the restaurant for food as we were up early to get out and explore the area, but *shock horror* the breakfast didn’t start until 9am! We were actually quite amused by this as guests and staff alike seemed to stay up late and get up late. Luckily we had supplies with us to fuel our trekking for the day. I recommend you request an early breakfast if you need it.
The resort has a relaxed friendly vibe about it with groups of families hanging out by the pool, friends playing fussball or drinking (really bad) coffee. NB – As a female I wouldn’t have sat in a bikini sunbathing by the pool as it would have felt awkward.
There are majlis areas dotted around the resort which you can sit in and eat, play games, smoke shisha or just relax (or even sing lots of Lebanese songs, in one case!). In the evenings as you walk around the resort this makes for a sociable atmosphere as various greetings are exchanged as you pass by. With only 17 rooms there aren’t that many people in total, but the majority make the most of the beautiful weather by sitting outside.
Some minor points: the beds are ridiculously hard, the chairs on the terrace were broken and the bathrooms could do with a bit of a refurb. The coffee is pretty foul (based on British, Omani and Lebanese opinions), but I am a tea drinker anyway 🙂
The Manager was really friendly and helpful offering advice on the remote routes, wadis and canyons less travelled in the area. And there are a lot. I am surprised we haven’t discovered and been exploring around Buraimi before.
Even if you didn’t want to do the hiking in this area I would recommend Wadi Sharm Resort – its peaceful, the staff are helpful, everyone is really sociable and there are various activities onsite to keep you amused, or not if you just want to sit and enjoy the vistas of the mountains. The resort is not difficult to get to either from the UAE as its only 30 minutes up the road from the border crossing in ‘no man’s land’. So, assuming its not a national holiday, you could get here in two and half hours. We will be coming here again to explore some more!
[Note that you do still have to go to the Omani border to get your exit and re-entry stamps in your passport.]
More to follow soon on trekking around the wadis in this area…
