get the facts - what to expect!
Is this a half/full board or self catering staycation?
Our bookings are totally self catering, this means that you provide all your own food, there are no restaurants, cafes or shops on site. You cook for yourself or bring ready prepared food.
As you are self catering do I need to bring all my own items to cook/feed myself?
Yes you do, you need to bring your own food, plates, cups, cutlery, pans etc. There is a refrigerator in your room to put your food in.
Is there a supermarket close by in case I need anything?
There are two Carrefours, Lulu and Grandiose close by 5-10 minutes away. There is a small pet shop on site also.

Each can have up to 4 people.
Do I need to like and be comfortable around dogs to stay at RAK Glamping?
Yes you do, your hosts who live onsite have a Great Dane and other guests will probably have dogs too. If you do not like dogs then we strongly recommend you find an alternative staycation option where dogs are not present.
