As per a report, Caravan by Habitas AlUla is set to open this month in one of the most ancient cities of the Arabian Peninsula. It is nestled between mountains and the ancient Nabatean settlements. Caravan AlUla will consist of 22 Airstream trailers.

The brand-new glamping site is based on Bedouins who wandered the region along the kingdom’s ancient Incense Routes. Connection to the human race and adventure are at the core of the kingdom’s new location to stay.

The guests at Caravan AlUla will stay in stunning Airstream trailers tucked away in a U-shape form in the mountainous Arabian valley.

Each trailer has an amazing view and a private outdoor deck. Visitors can explore the area on electric off-road bicycles.

The trailers are air-conditioned and come with a queen-sized bed, indoor lounge, kitchenette, separate shower, bathroom, and Wi-Fi.

Created to awaken guests’ inner child, the trailers are packed with amusing features, including coloring books, disco lights, scalp massagers, and curated collections of storybooks.

This is Caravan by Habitas’ debut, the latest experience from the hotel chain known for its experience-led, eco-conscious services.

“We are excited to expand our brand in a new direction and to offer a new type of experience, we invite people to come on an adventure, to play in raw nature,” said Co-founder and Chief Executive of Habitas, Oliver Ripley.

“We’ve chosen AlUla, one of the oldest cities in the Arabian Peninsula as our first outpost for this new, immersive concept for its history, culture, and natural heritage. We hope that our Caravan concept will provide travelers with a unique way to discover new and untapped destinations around the world, in nature and activating unique and experiential accommodation.”

In the middle of the Caravan AlUla is a common tent where guests can gather to enjoy tea or play board games and reconnect with others.

The place is brimming with antiques and crafts from across Saudi Arabia, and guests can also find an enormous outdoor fire pit, the ideal spot to bask in the star-filled skies of northwest Saudi Arabia.
