Along with nature walks and meditation sessions, Habitas AlUla Earth Day 2022 activities include a locally inspired, plant-based Earth Day menu, served at Habitas AlUla’s restaurant, Tama. The hotel says the restaurant acts as a gathering place, using sustainable agricultural methods to take guests on a culinary journey.
Ingredients are sourced from local farms in communities surrounding AlUla, with the intention of bringing seasonal, fresh flavours to the table.
There will also be a documentary screening to inspire and communicate the property’s sustainable ethos through storytelling. An open-air screening of One Strange Rock will be held at the Desert Arts Club and will explore the many ways that life flourishes on Earth.
