Meraas opened the doors of its projects in Hatta on October 30, offering visitors a unique perspective of the national park which celebrates its serenity, a short drive away from the glimmering lights of the city.
The undertaking offers global adventure experiences at this destination, inviting visitors from UAE and beyond to rediscover Hatta’s serene and landscape, its mountains and water bodies.
Meraas will activate the Hatta Wadi Hub featuring a coaching centre and high-energy activities such as mountain biking and Hatta Drop-in, Asia’s first water jump park and an idyllic glamping experience at the Hatta Damani Lodges. Visitors will also have the opportunity to stay at the Hatta Sedr Trailers which offer visitors a first-of-its-kind experience in the region through vintage trailers repurposed as boutique hospitality experiences, in addition to the other attractions and activities such as the Hatta Zorbing.
The latest in a series of projects launched by Meraas is ‘Riad Hatta’. The new boutique hotel, currently in design stage, will offer an authentic dining and cultural experience that showcase the rich local culture and heritage.
The hotel is inspired by traditional ‘Riad’ – houses built around a central courtyard with materials that blend with the nature of Hatta and is expected to open fourth quarter in 2019.
Amenities include private plunge pools, restaurants serving dishes influenced by local cuisine, as well as a spa and a hammam.
Meraas is also collaborating with Dubai Municipality on several projects namely the redevelopment of the old heritage village to preserve and to revitalize the cultural and traditional market and adding new stores to support Emirati entrepreneurs in developing their own businesses and ensuing a sustainable source of income. Moreover, in line with the community involvement and active life segment under the newly issued National Policy for Senior Emiratis, a majlis which will be a meeting point for Senior Emiratis from Hatta to come together and share experience, knowledge and each other’s company is being built.
Furthermore, Meraas is working closely with Dubai Municipality on several studies that aim to develop and protect the waterbodies in Hatta through assessing ways and methods to increase water retention levels.
Another region’s first making its way to the up and coming tourist spot is Hatta Zorbing, a specialized zorbing center for adults and kids. The popular sport where riders roll downhill inside a giant transparent orb takes the adventure quotient to a whole new level.
Another destination, Hatta Damani Lodges, houses three different types of cabins to offer a mountain lodge experience enhanced by Hatta’s rich and diverse ecosystem that spans across extensive mountain and biking trails. Hatta Damani Lodges are at close to Hatta Wadi Hub and to a world of adventures and activities. Visitors can wind down from the day-long adrenaline rush around a bonfire at the Hatta Wadi Hub or enjoy scrumptious barbeques at cosy purpose-built huts.
On the other hand, Hatta Sedr Trailers brings the first-ever trailer hotel concept to the region, featuring trailers transformed into hospitality units each with its own terrace. Guests at Hatta Sedr Trailers can access a common area equipped with a fire pit and barbeque facilities, while enjoying an uninterrupted view of the charming banks of Hatta Dam.
Overnight stays are also available at Hatta Campsite, a dedicated camp site, where tents can be set up to offer a curated indoors-meets-outdoors experience. Alternatively, visitors can take a spot at Hatta Caravan Park while they enjoy all what Hatta has to offer.Add to Favorites
