A Guide to the Best Leisure Options in Al Barari

Written by Bethan Hurst-Haynes

Al Barari, located within Dubailand adjacent to Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, is known as the “green heart of Dubai” and is positioned as a holistic, lifestyle focused residential community. In this blog, we’ll be taking a closer look at the leisure amenities on offer but make sure to also check out our Community Guide.

 

The Farm

Al Barari has multiple restaurants, each offering something different but The Farm is synonymous with the community and its aesthetic. Inspired by the flora and fauna that surround it, The Farm is a multi-use “oasis of calm”.

Founded in 2012 it is a culinary, leisure and social hub for residents and guests offering “high quality, wholesome food as nature intended” and their flavours are inspired by not only Middle Eastern flavors but also Thai and Mediterranean dishes.

Exceptionally popular, The Farm has won multiple awards and accolades including ‘Restaurant of the year - Healthy’ at the Middle Eastern Hospitality Excellence Awards. For more information, or to book a table please call 056 174 1208.

Heart and Soul Spa

Offering a full complement of services and treatments, Heart and Soul Spa is located in the centre of Al Barari, at its “beating heart”. There are separate facilities for both men and women plus a service menu for kids so they don’t miss out on relaxation time!

If you need some ‘me-time’ you can book massages, reflexology, facials or a hammam experience - the spa also has a hair salon and nail bar. Booking is highly recommended, please call 04 320 7350 to make an appointment or enquire about their services.

Beach Lagoon

Due for completion at the end of 2021, the Beach Lagoon will include a functional pool for residents to cool off in, as well as a shallow water cascade. The man-made beach will be constructed with sand imported from the Maldives - no expense spared!

The lagoon will be in close proximity to most of the community’s villas, there is no word yet on whether it will be open to non-residents and if so, whether there will be any charges associated with entry and use. Watch this space!

Body Language

In addition to a picturesque lakeside cycle track criss-crossing the community, there is also a health club - Body Language - offering personal training, pilates, crossfit and a juice bar (plus more!)

Staffed by a team of 8 diverse trainers, they are each experts in their respective field and can confidently cover all aspects of health and fitness for members. Open from 07:00 - 22:00 Sunday - Thursday and 08:00 - 19:00 Friday and Saturday they have a full class timetable. Sessions can be booked online or by calling the club directly on 050 899 9643.

The Well

Designed to satisfy all of your retail needs, The Well is Al Barari’s shopping hub where you can buy just about anything that you might need. It has a Waitrose, florist, men’s grooming salon, children’s nursery, pharmacy, cleaners and a nail salon! If that’s not enough and you’re searching for a more unique shopping experience, then head to Anthology, a first of a kind wellness department store showcasing the very best wellness concepts and products from around the region.

The vision of Al Barari is present in every detail and every aspect of living is as carefully curated as the various residences situated throughout the community. Options are available for every type of resident from the apartments and penthouses of Ashjar and Seventh Heaven to the spacious villas in The Nest and Residences. Those seeking something bespoke should contact the Reserve team, who create homes that “reflect your imagination and dreams” - expect to be actively involved in the process from start to finish.

Al Barari also launched a new project, Chorisia, on 1st April 2021 - a development of 60 contemporary villas. The project incredibly sold out in 45 minutes but the good news is that phase II is due to launch in September.
