Default Hatta Fort Hotel

Well we went up there Friday lunchtime and spent the night there, came back tea timeish the next day - tell you what, if you fancy getting away from the dust, noise and crazy driving oof Dubai I'd highly recommend it,

the hotel itself is ok, 4 star but the service is great, all staff dead friendly - they have a residents/quiet pool so no kids shouting and screaming (there is another 'family pool' on site for kids), we just lazed around the pool, had some food and then had a bottle of pink champagne before heading out for cocktails and got a great nights sleep as its so peaceful up there,

oh....and you get PROPER blue skies there as well,

AED 1,100 a night - I reckon we'll be back again, worth every penny if you just want to hav ea relaxing time.

glad you had a good time. Have they still got that aviary in the hotel? last time I was there there were millions of little birds in there, was really cute! another nice one to try is Jebel Hafeet Hotel in Al Ain. Some will disagree with me of course. It isn't a 5 star hotel but it is built ontop of a mountain, you can hear a pin drop!! nice for a quiet break. It is pretty cheap about 450 a night I think. It has only been open a few years. Worth a trip out in my opinion.

We've heard it's good, but didn't actually go in to see the hotel when we drove out there a couple of weeks ago - but intend stayng there too. I really think Hatta is so pretty. Nice to hear you enjoyed it.

no they haven't got it, it reminds me of a swallow hotel from the 1970's, but in a good way, if you understand?

Yeah I've heard of the al ain one, may check it out - but how far is al ain?

take about 75 minutes to get up to Al Ain, pretty straight run to be honest with you. The Seaburn Swallow

Tried the link several times but unable to get a room price. Would somebody please try for 2nts any weekend this month and let me know the price quoted. Do you have to become a Hotel Club member?

Just been quoted AED520 for a Saturday and AED700 for a Friday night from another website, so we have booked the Saturday and will take ourselves to the zoo, which is supposedly the best in the Middle East.
