UAE – Adventurous resort in the Hajar Mountains

Escape the notorious bustle of Dubai and step into serenity at JA Hatta Fort Hotel, the only resort in the otherworldly Hajar Mountains that border Oman, often referred to as the Highlands of Dubai. Less than a 90-minute journey from the centre of Dubai, JA Hatta Fort Hotel is set across 80 acres of rugged grounds, offering exceptional views and thrilling adventures for all ages.

Guests can choose from an extensive menu of activities throughout their stay, from hiking through the rocky landscape to exploring the surroundings by bike, renting a pedalo or kayaking across the picturesque Hatta Dam, archery, mini golf and airgun shooting. Those seeking a slower pace can interact with resident wildlife and rescued animals or sit back and make the most of the Sunset Terrace whilst admiring the panoramic mountain views and starlit skies.

The unique resort consists of 54 contemporary chalet-style deluxe rooms and villas which all include a terrace or balcony, honouring the mountainous beauty of the outdoors. Further adding to the adventurous resort are the brand-new eco-friendly Terra Cabins, accommodating up to six guests and offering seclusion and privacy in a truly unrivalled location. 

At the end of a fun-filled day, guests can enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif at the Roumoul cocktail bar accompanied by live music, before digging into a delicious meal from the impressive à la carte menu at Jeema, one of the hotel’s atmospheric and charming restaurants.
