Celebrating serenity: Discover three Dubai hotspots
Escape the bustling city life and enjoy the great outdoors
Al Marmoom Desert
Al Marmoom Desert is the latest of Dubai's collection of nature reserves. It will soon be home to the Al Marmoom Desert Conservation Reserve, the largest tourism project of its kind in the region. It is also the first unfenced desert conservation reserve in the UAE, rich with hundreds of species of wildlife - from the Arabian Oryx, Arabian Gazelles, Sand Gazelles, to foxes and wild cats. The reserve will include ten animal and bird observation platforms, star and sunset observations decks, and even an outdoor theatre.
Arguably one of Dubai's most breath-taking natural attractions, Hatta is set against the stunning backdrop of the Hajar Mountains. Celebrating the serenity and spectacular scenery of the mountain enclave, a range of new developments and attractions have recently opened that offer visitors a unique perspective of the national park - from the high-energy Hatta Wadi Hub, to the serene eco-lodging experiences Hatta Damani Lodges and Hatta Sedr Trailers. Visitors can also choose overnight stays at the dedicated Hatta Campsite where tents can be set up to offer a curated indoors-meets-outdoors experience.
The Al Qudra Lakes allow visitors to discover Dubai's sprawling desert oasis, with a series of manmade lakes sprawled across 10 hectares of Dubai's Saih Al Salam Desert landscape. Visitors can tuck into a picnic after a leisurely ride around Al Qudra Cycling Track for a chance to spot some local wildlife in their natural habitats including flamingos, swans and many migratory birds. The newest addition to the man-made cluster of lagoons in Al Qudra is the Love Lake, carved in the form of two hearts entwined together.
