Baharash Architecture designs Oasis Eco Resort, which will be built in Liwa, UAE, by Dubai-based company Eco Resort Group
UK-based design studio Baharash Architecture was challenged by Dubai-based Eco Resort Group to design the World’s Greenest Eco Resort in Liwa, the southern region of UAE. Dubbed Oasis Eco Resort, will contain 84 interconnecting suites that will provide accommodations for guests and a team of wildlife biologists and conservation staff who will live onsite.
The story of the 8,400-square-foot Oasis Eco Resort develops around a spring, as it was revealed that groundwater could be extracted using a deep well. Taking into consideration that spring water was of vital importance to Bedouins for trade and transportation routes, the design team offered the water to be extracted from the ground and waste water will be treated onsite and recycled for irrigation.
The spring will be used for fish farming, recreational activities and provide a natural habitat for various wildlife. On-site wastewater management and recycling, 157,000 square feet of solar energy panels, an enforced “zero-emission zone,” and other features will make it the world’s greenest eco resort.
The accommodations and functional areas of Oasis Eco Resort are distributed around the spring too. All 84 interconnecting suites of various types boat amazing views and an outdoor terrace. Tranquil views can be enjoyed from all key spaces, including the fitness centre which is furnished with smart equipment. The restaurant will treat guests of the resort with both local delicacies and organic international fine cuisine. Dune dinning in the desert or dining by the spring or inside suite will ensure unprecedented experience.
The resort also provides health and Therapeutic spa facilities, which use organic ingredients. The therapeutic spa will provide a wide selection of wellness and beauty therapies. All spaces are equipped with smart glass windows, which offer instant privacy at a flick of a switch.
The $21 million project launched this month and is the first of several that will launch in the UAE over the next few years.
