Solar panels, ingredients grown on-site, sand-dunes, "smart" fitness equipment, on-site waste management and therapeutic spa facilities. This description seems dream-like but is actually reality. The Oasis Eco Resort designed by Baharash Architecture in Liwa was designed around the significant role desert springs had in the survival of bedouins. But how can an oasis be maintained in the desert of the UAE's southern region? Using a deep well, groundwater is extracted and is not only used to irrigate the on-site crops, but to create a natural habitat for animals species as well as human recreation. There is a total of 84 suites and the resorts' projected opening is in 2020.
