posted on 23/08/2016: 2293 views



The Ajman Tourism Development Department, ATDD, has announced the launch of two classification programmes for desert camps and tourism villages, the first of its kind in the United Arab Emirates.

Desert camps are divided into two types, day use and overnight, but will fall under one category, while tourism villages will have different categories of 5-star, 4-star and 3-stars based on the facilities and services that they will offer to tourists and residents.

According to Sara Alsuwaidi, Head of Classification Section at ATDD, the new classification criteria is in line with Ajman Vision 2021 to promote the emirate's growing tourism industry.

"We want to create sustainable tourism and offer a diverse range of attractions for both tourists and residents visiting the emirate. This is the first of its kind in the United Arab Emirates and the result of a thorough analysis of the desert camps and tourism villages across the Emirates," added Alsuwaidi.

She said that the department's working group visited a number of camps and tourism villages in Abu Dhabi and Ras al-Khaimah and compared them before they develop the new classification criteria programme.

The Licensing and Tourism Standard Department previously introduced classifications for motel, guest houses, and furnished apartments, in addition to hotels, hotel apartments, restaurants, travel and tourism agencies and tourist transportation companies. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395299026469.html
