A state-of-the-art polo and equestrian community which is so unique that it will become a sporting landmark and a highly desirable place to reside. The design is a credit to Mr. Mohammed Al Habtoor who is passionate about polo and has created an upmarket residential environment with the St Regis Hotel as a centrepiece.
Set over 6 million square feet of land, the development boasts 120 villas for lease, 25 St Regis branded luxury homes, four polo fields, a riding school with show jumping and dressage arenas, and 500 stables.
The St Regis is a 126 key five-star luxury hotel offering world class dining, swimming pool, gym, tennis courts and open views across three international-sized polo fields.
Located in Dubailand bordering on the Emirates Road (E611) away from the hustle and bustle of the city but within easy reach of the Central Business District, Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah and Dubai International Airport.
The Resort is easily accessed from the E611 and the Al Ain Road (E66) and a new highway is being built connecting straight to the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311). Some of the best schools are less than 15 minutes’ drive away and nearby shopping centres can be found in Dubai Silicon Oasis and Arabian Ranches.
A world-class 5-star hotel on one’s doorstep is an incredible benefit for the residents, who can enjoy preferential rates in the restaurants, spa and sporting facilities, hotel and conference rooms. The gated community will also provide a residents’ pool, on-site maintenance and 24-hour security.
The equestrian facilities will be of a quality second-to-none, with 520 stables all with natural light built in robust materials with vaulted ceilings, show arenas, horse-walkers, riding track. There will be a Polo Academy, Riding School with school horses and instructors and regular equestrian events.
In addition, residents will enjoy discounted rates on horse livery, polo and riding lessons.
Polo is more than a sport, it’s a lifestyle. This is what the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club will exude with regular games and world class tournaments, in particular the internationally acclaimed Gold Cup Series founded by Mr. Mohammed Al Habtoor, affiliated with the Hurling Polo Association (HPA). Spectators will enjoy watching some of the best players and horses in the world compete and consume the excitement generated in this athletic team sport.
Polo is regarded as an elite sport but it is also a small industry that fosters friendships and connections around the world. The environment breeds a social side that involve parties and other social events and the camaraderie of the game is a big part of what makes it so enjoyable. The polo season in the Middle East is one of the longest in the world, starting in October through to May.
Winston Churchill once said, “A Polo handicap is your passport to the world.” He is right.
The Resort offers 120 villas for lease, of which more than 70 per cent directly overlook the polo fields. Comprising three- and four-bedroom semi-detached villas, and 20 Premium five-bedroom detached villas each with a private swimming pool. All villas come with maid’s room and are spacious and thoughtfully designed to provide comfortable family living. Fully equipped Italian-made kitchens, floor to ceiling windows and European-style architecture will appeal to all nationalities. Interlock laid roads and manicured gardens will enhance the exclusivity of the residences.
The residents are likely to be horse-lovers who will have the most sophisticated equestrian facility on their own doorstep. They will enjoy literally having a front seat as a spectator of world class polo with the backdrop of the Andalusian-style St Regis Hotel and all its facilities at their disposal. One thing they will never be short of is guests!
The first phase of villas will hand over in mid February 2017.
