The Residences at Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort

Written by Arpan Ghosh

Polo. One of the quintessential luxury sports, one associated with royalty and the aristocracy. A sport that requires a certain amount of grace, not only from the movements of the horse, but that of its rider. Any city that claims to be a home of luxury will have at least one polo ground somewhere within its boundaries. Dubai has four of its own, the most recent of which is the splendid Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort. First opened in 2016, the club has become one of the city’s hotspots for equestrian sport, hosting individual matches and tournaments throughout the polo season.

Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort is also one of Dubai’s finest residential destinations, offering 120 beautiful villas in a tranquil gated community spread along one side of the resort. The houses, which are available for rent exclusively through LuxuryProperty.com, range between three and five bedrooms, and are exquisitely designed. A contemporary Mediterranean theme runs through each residence, with architecture reminiscent of Italian and Spanish country homes. Floor-to-ceiling windows add a nice contemporary touch, providing views over the polo fields from every principal room. And as another signature touch, each villa comes with a stunning Italian-style open kitchen with integrated appliances. Wide terraces and private gardens complete the look, allowing you to enjoy a polo match right from your backyard.

If you are looking for a short-term option, then you have the Royal Villas, a unique collection of 25 luxury houses that are part of the polo resort. These can be rented out in much the same way as a hotel suite, and there are longer leasing options available as well. The Royal Villas are the cream of the crop amongst the resort’s accommodations, boasting the same classical Medtierranean design style as their regular residential counterparts, while the upscale furnished interiors are infused with a modern Andalusian charm. Sheets of soft Egyptian cotton, tastefully selected furnishings, rainfall showers in the en-suite bathrooms, espresso machines, specially picked tea selections, flat screen televisions and home technology are among the amenities present in each house, making your stay at Al Habtoor Polo Resort comfortable and memorable. And of course, the villas simply would not be complete without spacious balconies and beautifully maintained gardens, along with the most incredible views.

Whether you are looking for a vacation in a prestigious resort community or a family home that gives you access to an active, outdoors-focused lifestyle, this is the right place for you. Spread over more than 6 million square feet, the Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort has 4 polo fields and 520 stables, plus two arenas. You can enjoy a game of mini golf, or work on your swing at the driving range. The resort also has a snooker room and an archery area, plus you can sign up for membership to the gym and the tennis courts. At the end of the day, spend a little time pampering yourself at the One Touch Wellness spa, and sit down to a lavish dinner at one of five signature eateries. Experience the best of Mediterranean cuisine at Andalucia, dine on the perfect steak at The Grill Pit, catch up with friends for a drink at The Horse & Hound, have an informal lunch meeting at the Equestrian Lounge overlooking the polo field, or relax at the Oasis poolside bar. However you want to spend your day, the options are limitless.

Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort is tucked away in a quiet corner of Dubai, letting you enjoy complete privacy and giving you the freedom to really savor your tranquil surroundings. And thanks to a location near one of the city’s major highways, along with a well-designed road network, you are only about a 20-minute drive from the vibrant Downtown district, as well as the beach and two international airports.
