The winter might be over soon, but glamping under the stars will certainly remain! The UAE is known for its fancy glamping spots and there will soon be an addition to this list. The Moon Retreat in Sharjah will be the newest glamping spot in the country. Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Shurooq, announced the addition of Moon Retreat to their eco-luxury tourism destinations. The retreat will open to guests during the first quarter of 2021 in Mleiha.
Sleep Under The Stars, Go Hiking, Or Enjoy Bonfire
Once open, the cool, new glamping spot will be perfect to hang out with friends and family. Guests can opt to stay in 10 single-bed domes, 4 family tents or 2 single-bed tents. All the tents are fully equipped with all required amenities, including private pools.
As for the activities you could hike through the rugged Mleiha landscape, where you can spot fossils, artefacts and Bronze Age tombs. Moon Retreat offers incredible star gazing opportunities at night, so don’t miss out on that. For the food, you can pre-order a barbecue kit to cook up on your private grill, and even enjoy a bonfire as the night sets in.
While an official open date is yet to be provided, the developers state that it is 25 per cent off completion, with an expected opening date of Q1 2021.
