Fancy going camping in the cool mountains at Hatta but still feel like you’re getting the five-star treatment? Meraas has just launched a "first-of-its kind” trailer-style hotel, and it’s something worth checking out.
The new luxury trailer and lodge accommodation on the Hajar Mountains opened earlier this week (Tuesday October 30) and it's bringing a new level of camping to Dubai.
From Dhs250 per night, travellers can camp along the banks of the Hatta dams in a decked out trailer, each with their own terrace with couches and chairs to lounge in.
The Hatta Sedr trailers also have a kitchenette attached for home-style cooking, while guests can also use the barbecue facilities and gather round the communal fire pit when it gets a bit nippy.
What better place to sing a good old campfire song?
Also starting at Dhs250 a night are the Hatta Damani Lodges, each overlooking the Hatta Dam on three different levels on the mountain.
It may look like a regular hut on the outside, but guests can expect to be treated to their own private terrace, large TV and communal bonfire and barbecue facilities.
The new accommodations also come with a host of new activities at the Hatta Wadi Hub, close by to the lodges.
The hub offers “paid and free” experiences, including mountain bike rides, kayaking along the dam, axe throwing, freefall jumping off cliffs and twin zip-lining.
Hatta will also introduce “Hatta Drop-in”, a water jump park that features a crazy slide, drop-in donuts and more.
If you’re yearning to camp in style, you can book your spot at the trailer or lodge at www.visithatta.com, or call 800 637227 for more information
The project all part of a ten-year Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan aimed at boosting the tourism and “advancing the social and economic development of the area,” according to Meraas.
The development of the region will continue, with further projects comprising of a variety of additional hospitality and retail developments.
If you’re more of a cinemagoer rather than camper, Aloft City Centre Deira’s brand-new cinema suites with an in-room cinema screen will suit your fancy.
