Why the UAE?

Glamping has become a popular tourist activity in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because it is a great way to experience the country's natural beauty by combining the adventure of camping with a hotel's comfort, modern amenities, and luxury.

The UAE offers a variety of Glamping options, from Yurts to luxury portable Glamping Pods which are fully equipped with A/C and private bathrooms.

Popular Glamping sites in the UAE include desert camps in the Dubai and Abu Dhabi regions and mountain camps in the northern emirates like Ras Al Khaimah and Hatta - Some of which offer a variety of activities such as dune bashing, camel riding, and stargazing.

Another popular Glamping option in the UAE is on its beautiful beaches. Many beach resorts and hotels offer luxury beachfront Glamping Pods and Cabanas, complete with private decking and panoramic views of the ocean.

Don't just take our word for it!

Here is the feedback we received when speaking to some happy Glampers:

UAE resident - “I have never been an outdoor person. However, when my husband introduced me to this new concept of glamping, I jumped at the concept. Glamping lets people forget about their daily grind. It introduces hotel amenities in an exclusive setting and offers maximum comfort.”

Tourist - “I am an outdoor person by nature. Glamping is a fun thing. It has a cool quotient. It’s a modern take on traditional camping activities. It’s inspiring to stay connected with elemental beauty.”

UAE resident - “If you go camping on your own, you have to pack so many things. Then, it starts feeling like a chore. Preparing a checklist of all the things you have to carry… packing up the car with tents, blankets, a barbeque set, firewood, oil, food and then returning with half a tonne of sand. But glamping simplifies everything, it cuts out the stress.”
