Emirati hospitality, Bedouin culture, ecotourism and more

Younis Al Dawoodi who leads the two new Kerten Hospitality glamping eco-resorts in Ras Al Khaimah writes that being part of these projects combines his long passion for the industry and the willingness to share a glimpse of the Bedouin culture and genuine Emirati hospitality. In an opinion piece he argues: In today’s constantly changing world, going back to your roots, to simple life and to nature is what re-charges your batteries and gives you strength to keep going. A focus on sustainability, ecofarming, support for the local supply chain and a firm plan to build a community around our two projects resonates with our Bedouin tradition, which thrives on agility, adaptability to the harsh weather and on a sense of extended family and authentic hospitality.
