With bohemian vibes of Santorini on the shores of the Arabian Gulf, Banan Beach is the latest boutique addition to Marjan Island. Enjoy the Greek-inspired white-washed glamping resort with its laidback tunes, barbeque feasts and bonfire serenity. Pastel coloured wooden tents with waterside terraces, Insta-swings and bonfires create the perfect vibe for outdoorsy people. The pet-friendly glamping resort is the perfect destination for a few days away from the bustling city or for a back-to-nature holiday.

You’d think that you were in Santorini with the rustic and colourful bohemian vibes of Banan Beach. The glamping resort has everything from pretty multicoloured thatched A-frame tents,  loft-style tents with waterside terraces, and impressive three-bedroom chalets in expansive white-washed gardens with infinity pools and Insta-swings. Interiors are stylish with fun candyfloss and sugary colours on the walls and locally sourced upcycled rough-hewn furniture to help save the planet. Each garden has a barbeque so you can fire up and cook each night. There is an onsite butchery for tasty skewers and tender steaks.

 

The laidback Greek-inspired atmosphere continues onto the beach with bamboo salas, or swings and hammocks in which to relax or dine on their wholesome menu. As the sun dips over the Arabian Gulf, the bonfire crackles so that guests can enjoy the latest movies in the colosseum-style seating. Take your blankets and curl up under the stars. The pool area is bright and white with sunny turquoise and ochre accents. Banan Beach holds regular chilled events around the pool with their Saturday beach party or Sunday ladies’ day. Best of all, the resort is pet friendly, so you can bring your favourite pooch.
