Several new projects are underway in Hatta, Dubai inland exclave, led by Meraas. They aim at positioning the area as an ecotourism destination.
The first phase of these projects is scheduled to open in Q4 this year. The developments are aligned with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, which includes the 10-year Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan that he officially announced in 2016.
Projects have been developed based on strategic plans managed by Meraas, with both design and construction adhering to the highest global and sustainability standards. Building materials were selected to complement and enhance the natural environment without compromising the geological integrity of the area or impacting the surrounding communities and ecosystems.
The first addition to Hatta’s tourism landscape will be giant ‘Hatta’ letters located at an elevation of around 450 metres up in the Hajar Mountains, which provide the picturesque town. An adventure center and interactive tourism information hub will also open. Other new projects that will open in the first phase of the development include mountain lodges, with 20 rooms. Visitors to Hatta will also have the chance to camp at a first-of-its kind trailers hotel concept.
The second phase of the project comprises varied hospitality and retail developments that are set to create further touch points between local, regional and international tourists.Add to Favorites
