The JA Hatta Fort Hotel has been updated with a 21st century look while retaining its Arabian roots.
Set in the historic Hajar mountains less than a two-hour drive from Dubai, JA Hatta Fort Hotel has been bought up to date.
The renovation coincides with a new initiative awarding the Hatta area 1.3billion AED as part of development plans to boost its credentials as an eco-tourism destination.
The hotel group rolled out a phased approach to refurbishing all 48 chalet style rooms, two suites and two villas.
Set in 80 acres of gardens, the hotel offers leisure and entertainment choices including two swimming pools, spa, gymnasium, field and target archery range, mini golf course, tennis courts and a mini zoo.
With new investment in the area, guests can explore the history of the region by 4×4 or quadbike. Millions of years ago, the entire region was under the sea which can be explored at local sites like Camel Rock and Fossil Rock. The Hatta Dam is accessible by boat or kayak; its jagged landscape being home to a variety of birds including ospreys and fish eagles.
