Ever feel like having a break from the hustle and bustle of Dubai life and embracing your inner hippy?
Now you can – without even leaving the city.
Banan Beach gives you the ‘best of Dubai hospitality’ - from your very own tent on the beach.
The brightly coloured rows of triangular-shaped tents look down on to the shores of the Arabian Gulf, which are strewn with hammocks and swings facing out onto the water.
The Instagram possibilities are endless, although we imagine you’ll be ditching your phone in the pursuit of mindfulness… or maybe not.
Alternatively you can relax on a fire-side beanbag while feasting on some smoky barbecue meats - or find a serene spot for some beachside meditation.
If bedding down on the beach isn’t quite to your standards, then you can opt for chalet accommodation, which ranges from rustic and quaint to some pretty upmarket options.
We’re off to burn all of the materialistic possessions we own. Peace out.
