An environmentally friendly desert retreat is the latest creation of Baharash Architecture

Located in Liwa, Abu Dhabi, it is “in harmony with the pristine and untouched desert-scape” say the design team.

The retreat is completely energy self-sufficient, using solar panels as it generates and stores clean power in battery units.

Other features include smart glass windows to offer instant privacy at the flick of a switch, an indoor herb garden, and a central fire place for social interaction which was a key part of the Bedouin heritage.

Staying inside the eco-retreat, in the heart of a beautiful desert, is a rejuvenating experience. The retreat will provide genuine exclusivity and tranquillity in an area which has remained unspoiled for centuries, and is home to a thriving wildlife such as onyxes, gazelles and camels.

“UAE has some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the region, such as Liwa, which is a perfect destination for eco retreats” said Baharash Bagherian, founder of Baharash Architecture.

“We are seeing a new generation of Emiratis who are looking to lead a more sustainable life style, in line with UAE’s vision to become one of the most sustainable countries in the world. Thus eco-retreats are a great sustainable alternative to the usual jet-setting trips”.
