Emirati Escapes: Mysk Moon Retreat In Sharjah

Opened only recently in October 2021, Mysk Moon Retreat has already soared in popularity as arguably the most unique resort in the UAE. Located in Sharjah’s desert in the historic area of Mleiha, near the spiritual Fossil Rock and framed by the Al Faya Mountains, the retreat is set back off the road with a signpost so subtle that without Google Maps you’d miss it – which only adds to its appeal. As you drive on the dirt road, kicking up the dust, from behind a rocky cliff face emerges a Mars-like space camp dotted with igloo-inspired dome tents, surrounded by red desert. Not a soul can be seen, like something out of a science fiction movie. Showstopping it really is.

With only 10 domes and six tents on site, it is reassuringly exclusive in size. Designed in the ultimate glamping style, the tents rival most five-star hotel rooms, all complete with large fluffy pillows, chic furnishings and clean, minimalist shower rooms.

Most tents offer a private pool on the outside deck from which to watch the desert change its myriad of tones throughout the day, before guests settle down as the sun sets to cook a Do-It-Yourself style BBQ, delivered fresh to the door. A bucket list experience, Mysk Moon Retreat really should be your next Emirati escape. Mysk Moon Retreat by The Sharjah Collection; +971 6 801 2020
