This month, Habitas will introduce Caravan by Habitas, its first immersive glamping experience for travelers looking for adventure, surprise and human connection. Caravan hopes to create human connections through play, bringing out guests’ inner desires for a different kind of travel. Known for its experience-led hospitality and environmentally conscious designs, Caravan AI-‘UIa will use Airstreams to access unique locations and to further demonstrate Habitas’ sustainable ethos.
All 22 Caravan rooms are chic Airstreams, offering a variety of scenic views equipped with a private outdoor deck, air conditioning, WiFi, indoor lounge, a stocked kitchenette, private shower and bathroom. Keep an eye out for the hidden amenities and activities, such as coloring books, disco lights, scalp massagers and more, there to ensure you have fun and stop taking life too seriously.
“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. We’ve chosen AI-‘UIa — 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,” said Oliver Ripley, co-founder and CEO, Habitas.
True to Habitas’ six pillars of programming — music, wellness, adventure, culture, learning and culinary — each experience will feature cultural discourse, performances and interactive art installations. Another focus of the program is immersive adventure programming, which includes Canyon Crossing, Desert Trekking, Arabian Horse Treks, Stargazing and Desert Survival Skills.
Guests will also be able to take advantage of a library, game rooms, fire pits and a yoga deck, as well as dining amenities including food trucks and a food court. The food trucks are accompanied by a family-style dining area with communal tables and comfortable seating.
