United Arab Emirates’ Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has announced that it will open Banan Beach by the end of 2021, a report said.
It is situated on Al Marjan Island, renowned for its serene beach and pristine shoreline. The secluded beach resort features colorful tepees that are set around a central fireplace with private chalets, barbecue areas, and spots to meditate. An outdoor cinema will also be available.
Furniture, fixtures, doors, windows, decorations for the tents and chalets are made by the Banan Beach team using recycled, locally sourced, and biodegradable material.
The theme of sustainability at the resort will extend to dining options, using organic and sustainable techniques like charcoal and wood for cooking instead of conventional gas and electricity.
Raki Phillips RAKTDA CEO said “Banan Beach is the perfect addition to our growing portfolio of family-friendly outdoor activities in Ras Al Khaimah. The sustainably driven camp aligns with our mandate to invest and launch authentic new tourism initiatives across the emirate and underscores our ability to continuously adapt to meet changing traveler needs and the growing desire for experiences in safe, open environments.”
Banan Beach founder Banan Abdalla added “We are incredibly excited to bring Banan Beach to Ras Al Khaimah. It will be open throughout the day, seven days a week, providing guests access to the Emirate’s crystal-clear waters all year long. Visitors will be able to relax and soak up the sun from an array of chalets and tents accommodating various group sizes and preferences. Those who prefer a poolside experience with a view of the beach can opt to lounge by the pool, dining at the onsite restaurants or cooking up a storm themselves, using the barbecue areas.”
