The Floating Retreat is a unique camping place designed by Ardh Architects. The facility offers a camping experience between the Sharjah mountains. But, as you can understand from the name of the facility, you will be in the air while camping. You will be floating!
The project was developed in partnership with Shurooq and the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority. The project was inspired by the philosophy of extreme sports. Therefore, the aim is to have more adventure.
What Does the Floating Retreat Provide?
After the guests arrive at the Floating Retreat, they are directed to the hangers. The hangers provide a comfortable and luxurious camping experience. You can find everything you need during the camping like necessary amenities, bed, electricity, heating, etc.
