1. JA Hatta Fort Hotel

JA Hatta Fort Hotel with Furchild Premium Freeze-dried Camel Treats

A Doggie Paradise Atop the Hajar Mountains

Our community’s top pick and our favourite as well, located in Dubai, JA Hatta Fort Hotel is a pet-friendly haven that offers you a serene experience of fresh mountain air for you and your pup.

Imagine walking out on 32 hectares of grassy lawns, soaking in breathtaking panoramas with your fur family alongside. And getting an aesthetic click as the Hollywood-esque Hatta mountain sign meets your pup’s charm on a morning hike.

Or take your four-legged friend to the nearby Hatta Dam for a hiking or kayaking experience. There are yet many more activities you could partake in at short driving distances.

Whether you have a little explorer or a gentle giant, JA Hatta Fort Hotel welcomes all breeds of dogs with two pets allowed per room.

2. Hilton RAK Beach Resort

Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Beach Resort

A Seaside Adventure with Beachside Bliss

Next from our community’s picks, ranks the Hilton RAK Beach Resort.

It brings a picture-perfect scene to reality with the turquoise waters and seaside pet-friendly rooms inclusive of a garden space. And that means lots of zoomies, wagging tails, and pure delight!

What more could a dog parent ask for?

With the dedicated dog-friendly beach area close to your room, you can watch your pup splash, play fetch, get covered in the sand tail to toe, and swim alongside you in the crystal-clear ocean with complete freedom all day long.

So if your furry friend is under 30 kgs, Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Beach Resort offers you a luxurious staycation with your dog to create memories that last a lifetime.

3. Banan Beach

Banan Beach

A Tail-wagging Experience of Tranquility

Coming back to Ras Al Khaimah, Banan Beach brings Greece’s Santorini vibes to the UAE, closer than you think.

Their dog-friendly beach now welcomes dogs on all days with a range of accommodations from dog-friendly chalets to no-frill tents for a cosy staycation with your dog.

And once your furry adventurer is done chasing the waves, digging in the sand, and swimming in the Arabian Gulf, you can add an extra touch of pampering with Banan Beach’s on-site pet grooming salon.

Plus, all breeds and sizes of dogs are welcome. So all you’ve to do is get your pup, some supplies, pack their Furchild food, and enjoy!

4. Bear Grylls Explorers Camp

Bear Grylls Explorers Camp

Brave the Wilderness of Jabel Jais

Nestled amidst the rugged beauty of Jebel Jais in RAK, Bear Grylls Explorers Camp offers a one-of-a-kind experience for the adventurous human. Here you can learn and test your essential life skills, techniques, and attitudes needed to survive the wilds of the mountains and desertlands.

That said, the camp is dog-friendly and welcomes dogs of all sizes with special accommodations built for pet parents that allow two dogs per room.

With 24-hour security and trained first-aid staff always available, it’s a rugged experience with all safety precautions covered for all guests.

With your pup by your side, this would be an unforgettable bonding experience that tests the true survivor’s spirit. And make sure to check with the camp’s team for more rules and arrangements regarding their dog policy before visiting.

5. Rahal Ranch

Rahal Ranch Abu Dhabi

A Rustic Retreat into the Heritage of the UAE

Resting at the foot of the Wathba Desert of Abu Dhabi, Rahal Ranch brings you and your pup the majestic dunes to explore among the breathtaking Arabian landscapes.

While your pup might not be joining you on a horseback adventure, your pup can observe the horses, goats, and native camels, as they enjoy exploring and sniffing around the ranch grounds.

Moreover, this dog-friendly destination offers immersive chalets to disconnect from the bustling city life. And they don’t charge any additional costs for our dogs’ stay which is always appreciated.

So if you want to experience the farm life of the Gulf alongside your furry friend, Rahal Ranch may be a great getaway choice for you.
