We had a wonderful brunch and stay at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort. My wife and I arrived on Thursday, and during that Holidays in Dubai, most of the time we spent in the pool of the resort. Equestrian-inspired Al Habtoor Polo Resort is located in Dubai Land, about half an hour’s drive from the airport.
We haven’t stayed in the UAE for a long time. The current situation has indeed challenged many of us, and the country’s businesses are adapting to the security measures imposed by the government. However, we are delighted that Dubai is open, so we can still travel in and out of the emirate in accordance with health guidelines.

Experience of staying at Al Habtoor Polo Resort in Dubai
The brunch and accommodation package we booked was for a couple’s overnight stay with brunch and breakfast, all for AED 699. This was already a very good deal for us, especially when the brunch costs AED 295 per person.
Check-in was quick and we made it to our room in no time. The building has only 3 floors.

Sculptures and paintings of horses
The resort’s structure is surrounded by lush, spacious green lawns and features a sophisticated and timeless Andalusian design.
One thing you’ll also notice is the amount of horse accents in the form of paintings and sculptures that make it quite funny as you stroll through its corridors. After all, the resort is also a resort and polo club.

Deluxe Room with Polo View
Our room was a Deluxe room with a balcony overlooking the Polo garden. It features a comfortable king-size bed, flat-screen TV, high-tech lighting and air conditioning controls, a minibar and more.
The area of 37 square meters is a great place to relax. Plus points for the sofa bench, reading chair and comfortable balcony seats.

convenience (high-tech control)
The bathroom is very chic and elegant, with marble tiles around the bath, a walk-in shower, his and her sink, and a separate toilet and bidet.
The faucets and shower handles feature rustic gold accents for another touch of luxury. I recall several hotels we have stayed in in the past, for example Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa as well as Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai with these separate fixtures.

View from the balcony
The balcony is quite spacious and offers a beautiful view of the manicured lawns. You can also see the background of Dubai; although visibility was unclear at the time.

Internet is free. After you enter your room with your data. At the time, the speed was 8.08 Mbps, which was enough for me to browse emails and work on social media posts.

- Andalusia – an all-day restaurant located in the atrium courtyard with a mosaic fountain. This is a spacious restaurant decorated with

During our stay, we redeemed our Buy 1 Get 1 coupon via Entertainer Dubai 2021 app dined at Horse & Hound. We had breakfast and ate breakfast at the Andalucia restaurant. Andalusia has such a grand setting and brings us back to our trip to Fez, Morocco because of the high ceiling and fountain.

The pool is where we spent most of our time during our stay. Even if it is not large, the pool is charming in its design. It exudes a tropical lagoon atmosphere with green tiles, plants and palms. It was such a wonderful experience relaxing in the pool.
They also have an outdoor jacuzzi overlooking the polo garden. Sun loungers are beautifully set next to the pool, where you can relax and take in the view. We made the most of our time relaxing in the area to deal with the summer heat in Dubai.
