How much does it cost? Well, from a petting zoo to hot tubs and more, here is our comprehensive guide to the Long Beach Campground in RAK.
Longbeach Camp Ground Ras al Khaimah Accommodation
As temperatures drop to more comfortable levels in the UAE, residents and tourists flock to outdoor leisure destinations where they can make the most of the great weather. The Bin Majid Beach Hotel offers visitors the perfect reprieve in the form of a fully furnished beach camping experience, complete with luxurious resort amenities. Known as The Longbeach Campground, this is a stretch of beach comprising a series of spacious bubble tents.
Located at the beachfront, the campground features an assortment of fully equipped tents. Depending on personal requirements, you can choose from five types of tents at long beach. So, whether you are looking for a sizeable tent for the whole family or a tent for two, here is an overview of each type of accommodation at Longbeach by Bin Majid, along with pricing.
Authentic Deluxe Tent
A large 13m tent for two, the Authentic Deluxe Tent at the campground comes with two beds, comfortable King size mattresses, soft cushions, and two outdoor camp chairs for visitors to take in the spectacular views of the sea, which is a few meters away. Designed to withstand the elements, these tents are weather, water, UV and wind-resistant. Amenities offered in this package include complimentary toiletries, a wake-up service, towels, and a shared bathroom. Spots are subject to availability. So, if you want a tent that is closest to the shore, we recommend booking early.
Authentic Family Tent
No need to haul out a survival kit or drive an RV to take your kids camping. A panoramic Family Tent at the Longbeach Campground is a hassle-free option for a family staycation. Complete with the aforementioned amenities, the 28m tents are more spacious and include King size and smaller beds to accommodate families with kids.
Prism Balcony Tent
As the name implies, this is a prism-shaped tent and offers a camping experience that’s a bit closer to the rustic outdoor living that campers are used to.
Panoramic Dome Suite Tent
With a bubble-shaped design, panoramic indoor view and private terrace, Panoramic Dome Suite tents at Longbeach Campground offer a unique camping experience. The hotel’s signature outdoor living accommodations feature a transparent exterior. Just pull back the curtains to take in the views without stepping outside.
Each 45m Dome tent is equipped with comfortable beds, a private bathroom and amenities to ensure that your stay is as luxurious as it is enjoyable.
An elevated wooden base ensures the best views. Of course, if you enjoy the view outdoors, private seating can also be arranged. Adding to the experience is a private hot tub in front of each of the hexagon-shaped tents.
Safari Suite Tent
Visitors looking to take their beachfront camping adventure up a notch can opt for a Safari Suite Tent. Looking more like a palatial living area than a tent, each 45m private tent sits atop an elevated wooden decking.
With comfortable beds, accessories and additional furnishings – stepping into any of these tents is akin to entering a private hotel suite. Adding to the exclusive experience are private bathrooms complete with toiletries as well as outdoor furniture on the elevated decks.
Other perks that come with a stay at the Longbeach Campground include 24-hour room service, which ensures that you never have to leave the comfort of your tent in case you get hungry.
