HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, toured visited Sharjah Investment and Development Authority’s (Shurooq) Al Faya Retreat in Mleiha desert and the Al Badayer Retreat, located in the Al Badayer desert.

According to the Emirates News Agency, both the retreats are a part of Shurooq’s luxury hospitality brand, Sharjah Collection that is being managed by Mysk by Shaza.

The Al Faya Retreat has been restored using elements that reflect the general nature of the desert environment. The development, which showcases Emirati heritage and historic culture, features floor-to-ceiling windows that is ideal for startwatching at night.

The retreat was originally built in the 1960s as two stone buildings, one of which was a medical centre and the second one was a store near one of the oldest fuelling stations in Sharjah and the UAE.

Additionally, the retreat is located near the Fossil Rock and is at a 10-minuite driving distance from the Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism project, which has also been developed by Shurooq that is currently carrying out works on Sharjah’s House of Wisdom.

As part of his visit, the Ruler of Sharjah also toured the Al Badayer Retreat, design of which is also inspired by the UAE heritage.
