Take a break from the city for a nature-inspired holiday in the mountains


JA Hatta Fort Hotel

Hatta Fort Hotel Dubai

The only full-fledged resort in town, JA Hatta Fort Hotel comes complete with 52 chalet-style accommodations. Premium stays include deluxe mountain-view rooms and villas with three bedrooms. The 120sqm villas blend in with the rustic surrounds and offer a private Jacuzzi, garden and pantry area.

You’re in for an unforgettable night under the stars at Hatta Dome Park, a glamping set-up that takes advantage of the exclave’s rocky views and back-to-nature vibes. There are 15 tents here, each designed with chic minimalism in mind. They’re fitted with panoramic windows, a private outdoor terrace and many of the comforts you’d expect at a hotel such as a stylish washroom, sleek TVs and even a mini-fridge.


Hatta Caravan Park

To admire Hatta’s landscape and indulge in the remote setting, rent out a bespoke caravan. Inside the 25sqm space, you’ll find fine-cut wood fittings, leather upholstery, entertainment systems and an ensuite bathroom. Each unit also has an outdoor terrace. Fancy roasting marshmallows at a campfire and feasting on a juicy grill? Use the barbecue and fire pit dedicated to your caravan. You’ll have to bring your own cooking supplies and lighting equipment – on the bright side, it’ll make for a more authentic outdoor experience.


Hatta holiday homes

Nestled within rugged peaks and valleys, Hatta staycations provide ideal opportunities for those seeking charming rural getaways or a cosy, private trip. Holiday homes are popular for these reasons, providing generous interiors for group or family stays. Most come with barbecue areas, pools, modern amenities and vantage points for taking in the beauty of the steep terrain. 

For something upscale, browse a selection of stunning properties like Hatta Terrace, Hatta Mountains Lodge and Hatta Gate. For a traditional break, go for a homestead like Happiness Farm, Sunrise Farm or Sama Hatta. The last one lets you have a meet and greet with the farm’s many friendly camels too!
