“FABULOUS AS ALWAYS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I have stayed at this hotel many times, and went for two nights last weekend, the staff are always very friendly, and somehow always remember us, the pool temperature was just right, and in the adults only pool it was quiet and relaxing with great views, the flowers along the walkways were as beautiful as ever and the food in both restaurants as good as ever (albeit the buffet for dinner is a bit pricey). great for walking around the mountain, plus a mess around on the tennis court, also hotel always let me have my favourite room. a great place to get away from it all and relax, what more can say.

Room Tip: not sharing as my secret sorry, want to make sure i get my room with a view each time ha ha

When living in Dubai we had a few breaks at the Hatta Fort Hotel and loved it. We have just revisited for a long weekend after being back in the UK for 16 years. We were not disappointed. Whilst the hotel has grown a little, the hospitality we received was second to none. The staff are wonderful, always smiling and friendly without being intrusive. Having stayed in many hotels around the World, I can honestly say this hotel is the best ever.

Once again, the Hatta Fort Hotel surpassed my expectations. This is a marvellous affordable escape from either Dubai or Abu Dhabi. With pristine lawns, low / no humidity and a warmer winter climate than the UAE coast, this mountain enclave offers relaxation and a change of scenery for residents and an authentic old-world atmosphere for overseas visitors. Good food, great activities and, yes, a heated pool(!) make it one of my favourite destinations in the UAE.

Dear Greg-of-Arabia,

Thanks for your wonderful comments, touching all the vital points that make Hatta Fort Hotel the most preferred Resort retreat, albeit for a moderate number of connoisseurs of your kind.

It is heartening to read your review complimenting the old world charm which we struggle to nurture amidst so much of pomp and splendor of a different kind.

We take pride in sharing your review with all our Associates who strive hard to make this your favorite destination.

We will look forward to your next stay in the immediate future.

With warm regards

Yes, we have been spoiled by the various hotels in Dubai so we have high expectations but this hotel just feels a bit expensive for what it offers. (around AED2000 per night for two rooms including food)
We stayed here for a night during Eid (high-season!) on the way towards Oman and booked two rooms as we have 3 small children. The children's facilities are nice (they have a separate children's pool and adult only pool and an outside play area with mini-golf) and the staff is very friendly.
The buffet dinner and breakfast is good but I had maybe expected a bit more in this price range.... Maybe we should have only booked one room as the rooms are very large??
Good location to get up early and beat the Dubai crowds to the border crossing in the busy season. (hence it only took us 30 minutes for all the admin)

Room Tip: Check if you can book a larger room as they can easily fit a family.

Dear Fred T

Accept our sincere thanks for your review posted following your short stay at our resort. Thanks for appreciating the children’s facilities and our segregation of adult pool for the peace and tranquility and one for families and young ones. Thanks also for the positive comments about our ‘friendly staff’.

Our tariff during the high peak periods like the public holiday period are marginally varies to the normal weekday prices, but certainly much lower compared with quality resorts of our kind. Thanks for your comments about the food offering in the breakfast, and only by receiving your valuable comments that we can constantly improve our standards and retain the value factor that we are known for over three decades.

We will look forward to your future stay with great interest.

Warm regards

The hotel has the sense of having been around for many years and this is proven in the certificates on it's walls of maybe a decade back or so.

But the place is so perfect it does not feel like it! Absolutely well taken care of and an amazing crowd. We visited during the last week of Year 2011 as a family getaway and it was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were perfect although a little cold. It was December anyway and they do not have central heating (why should they, it is the desert!) But the cold just would not go away, made things more cozy anyway! Lot os other activities to do like rock climbing apart from seeing the cultural village of Hatta itself. Amazing dinner buffet options and great breakfast too. Never used the pool, too cold for that.

A must stop when visiting the Eastern cost of the UAE and surely the right hotel to stay.

Dear Hotkitkatos,

True indeed, when we turn back to see those 30 years it amazes us too!!!. We greatly appreciate your gorgeous and generous comments which is certainly a pat for the constant renewals and upkeep we do undaunted all these years.

The weather has been a bit on the colder side this winter and as you rightly said certainly adds to the cozy feel. Thanks for the compliments about the food and we will pass them over to the culinary team.

Thanks once again for this great review and for kindly recommending our resort and we look forward to your stay time and time again.

With warm regards
