Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has announced that its latest glamping project Banan Beach will be ready to receive guests by the end of this year. The glamping resort will offer beachside vibes, campfire gatherings, yoga and wellness sessions, making it the ideal spot to enjoy memorable experiences with loved ones.
Located on Al Marjan Island, renowned for its beautiful shoreline and relaxed atmosphere, the chilled beach getaway will feature numerous facilities including vibrantly coloured tepee designed tents located around a central firepit, private chalets, family-friendly attractions, barbeque areas, designated spots to practice mindfulness, as well as an outdoor cinema screening a mix of blockbusters and family-favourites for all to enjoy.
The new attraction aligns with RAKTDA’s Sustainable Tourism Destination Strategy that will see the Ras Al Khaimah become the regional leader in eco-tourism by 2025. All furniture, fixtures, doors, windows and decorations for the chalets and tents, will be handmade by the Banan Beach team using recycled, locally sourced and biodegradable materials. The resort’s sustainability theme will also extend to its dining concepts, with natural and sustainable methods such as wood and charcoal for cookery used in its kitchens, instead of the conventional electricity and gas.
