Located in Harrat Khaybar, in the heart of one of the largest and rarest lava fields in Saudi Arabia, the Khaybar Volcano Camp offers ten luxury tented suites with private wooden decks. The cinematic landscape of Khaybar, built on dormant volcanoes and preserved in time, is the setting for an intimate overnight experience here.

The interiors reflect the outdoors, with the colour scheme complimenting the surrounding stark black basalt and white volcanic craters. Inside, each tent features modern furnishings and bespoke comforts like comfortable beds and plush bedding. Peering out at the surrounding vistas, scenic craters, epic sunrises, and illuminated evening skies is a beautifully transportive bonus.

As for your meals, you can expect them to be of the highest quality as well. The campsite will offer traditional Saudi Arabian cuisine, along with delectable menus created by Shale Hill, a highly respected restaurant and event group helming some of New York’s most distinguished and intriguing food venues.
