Bait Ali
Ranked #37 of 138 Speciality Lodging in Wadi Rum
Reviewed 10 April 2017

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the BAIT ALI Camp at Wadi Rum.
This is a splendid facility, lovingly built and developed over ther years. It offers 6 or 7 types of tents / cabins / chalets... from very basic hard shelled tents to luxury chalets with flat screen TV sets, air con and hot water.
It is ideally located before the entrance of the Wadi Rum Park and an easy access from the main Aqaba - Amman highway.
The Team at the Camp is amazing, friendly, helpful and supportive. "Customer centricity" seems to be their motto.
My wife and I are vegetarian and at night, the chef prepared a special main dish for us, without any request from us.
There is a swiming pool and several covered areas for meals.
Diner is served in a buffet style at night, around a fire.
We HIGHHLY recommend this camp

Room Tip: The so called Luxury chalets are very pleasant. Unit 26 is quiet and relaxing

Loved the atmosphere of this wonderful little oasis. The food was excellent with a lot of portions for us to eat and service was excellent. We also were the only ones there. They serve alcohol and it was well received after a long day at Wadi Rum. A bit pricey, however.

Stayed: March 2017

Let's face it: camping in Wadi Rum in a Bedouin tent is already an upgrade to traditional camping ( as in "pitch-your-own tent" and use a sleeping bag on the floor).

At any of the plethora of Bedouin camps to chose from in Wadi Rum, you are sleeping in a real bed, in a raised chalet and you have access to a shared bathroom with running water and real sinks.

Bait Ali is for those who want the comforts and feel of a hotel. And it more than delivers on that. But don't expect prime location (convenient, yes, very convenient location) - it's so close to the edge of Wadi Rum, that it's 200 m from the main road to the Wadi Rum visitor centre. Everyone going in and out of Wadi Rum sees the entire complex.

The beauty of Wadi Rum is the feeling of seclusion, the views of the canyons in the red desert, climbing the rocks for a better view, listening to the silence the wind and occasional bird song... Anyone who's done this before knows that to get a true Wadi Rum experience, you need to go to a camp that is deep enough in the desert to require you to leave your car at the visitor centre and be driven to the camp by your Bedouin guide in their old 4X4.

I am not saying that you won't enjoy the experience at Beit Ali - if you've settled on this particular camp, chances are you have a very particular taste and Beit Ali won't disappoint! But if you go home telling your friends you've been to Wadi Rum when this is the only way you've experienced it - you have to idea how wrong you are.

A two night stay was excellent. Good clean modern accommodation, friendly staff and good food ( l especially enjoyed being able to have omelette for breakfast) great location for a clear view of the stars at night. Would not hesitate to go there again.

We loved this place but then we like to try different things. Many of our group upgraded because the standard accommodation has neither bathroom nor heat. Enough blankets are provided so that the cool night wasn't a problem for us but if you're up going to the bathroom a lot during the night, you may want to avoid a trip to the communal bathrooms. That cost our people an extra $50 while heat was another $30, I believe.

Having said that, this is a great facility. The dinner and breakfast included were really nice with lots of hot and cold dishes. The restaurant/bar is very comfortable, with a central wood fire and atmospheric local music. The pool looked great although we didn't have time to swim.

Tip - make sure you climb the rocks at the back of the camp to get a great view of the area and, if you're up early enough, sunrise over the desert.

very nice and clean camp with a lot of accommodation options you can rent a tent or a room depending on your wish, they do have a swimming pool and great mountain views, food is cooked in a bedwen cooking style known as zarb, which has a nice grilling flavor and juicy tender meats, I loved the buggies sunset trip, where you leave the camp on buggies and stop to watch the sunset from an amazing location then drive back to camp, my advice is were a scarf and cover your mouth and nose from the sand.

To be high level camp accommodation not really amazing. The service for money is poor. The charges are too close to at least 4 stars hotel, but not what they offer in return. No hot water in the upper level rooms. Bed sheets were not changed. Food limited choice as open buffet.
To be fair, landscaping is good.
