St Regis’ very first equestrian themed luxury resort is almost ready to receive guests. The tall buildings and glittering lights of Dubai form the backdrop to the St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club which officially opens its doors in October. However, a sneak peek of the palatial property shows that it’s every bit as opulent and fabulous as you expect a Dubai luxury resort to be.
The resort’s 151 rooms, suites, and villas boast floor to ceiling windows or balconies that offer dramatic views of the four polo fields that the resort is built around. The décor is equal parts equestrian and Art Deco, giving the rooms a subtly glamorous feel.
The equestrian theme is not without context. Jacob Astor IV, founder of the first St. Regis in New York, was a Polo enthusiast. At this resort’s Polo Academy, an expert team of instructors will offer polo practice and riding lessons for guests. Experienced as well as novice riders are welcome.
Even the spa offers special treatments for riders like Riders Relief Massage and the Equestrian Journey, which are designed to relax sore muscles.
When not riding, guests can enjoy a high tea at the Equestrian Lounge or sip a cocktail at the St. Regis Polo Bar.
