A bit about Hatta

Hatta is a town in the United Arab Emirates that comes under the emirates of Dubai. It is located in the foothills of the Hajar Mountains. It is separated from the main part of the emirate by territory belonging to Sharjah and Oman. Hatta is best known as a heritage village. Less than a two-hour drive from Dubai, it’s the favourite pick for a weekend escape and close enough for a mini-daycation. In winter, Hatta is the go-to spot for hiking, kayaking, biking and other such adventure activities, while in summer it’s worth a visit for its cooler temperature.

My experience

The place looks straight out of some fantasy land! Great attention has been paid to the details and great care has been taken to maintain the place. The fort will give you a taste of living like royalty and it is insanely peaceful. As not many people know about it yet, Mughaibar Fort Hatta should be on your list if you have a thing for hidden gems and lesser-known places. The place has an excellent team that lives right next to the property and is always ready to assist you. From serving fresh dates from the farm to getting extra water bottles, from helping us to find nearby restaurants to tell us about the story of the fort, the staff ensured that we had a memorable stay. The sunrise from the terrace is surreal and shouldn’t be missed!
