Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority has announced the opening of Banan Beach in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, by the end of 2021.
Located on Al Marjan Island, the glamping resort will feature numerous facilities including vibrantly colored 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.
The new resort aligns with the Authority’s recently announced Sustainable Tourism Destination Strategy. 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.
