Meraas launches series of tourism projects in Hatta

Emirates: The UAE's buoyant tourism sector received a boost on Tuesday when Meraas announced a series of major projects in Hatta, aimed at advancing the social and economic development, aligned with the 10-year Hatta Comprehensive Development Plan announced in 2016.
Positioning Hatta as a destination of eco-tourism in the region, the first phase is scheduled to open in the fouth quarter. 
Abdulla Al Habbai, group chairman at Meraas, said Hatta is known for its beautiful scenery - mountains, lakes, wadis, farms, dams and fresh air - and the development of eco-tourism demonstrates "our commitment at Meraas to implementing the vision of our wise leadership" by creating economic opportunities for young people, local businesses and entrepreneurs in Hatta. 
"Supporting and enhancing the integration of leisure, hospitality, tourism and transportation is key to transforming this highly popular destination into a world-class area that offers families a diverse leisure experience." 
"We have worked to establish effective partnerships between Meraas and the people of Hatta in order to ensure projects meet the aspirations of present and future generations and that the area is equipped to receive more visitors to historical, social and cultural heritage sites, as well as indulge in a distinctive shopping experience of handicrafts and agriculture products and enjoy authentic Emirati cuisine in Hatta."
The first addition to Hatta's tourism landscape will be a giant 'Hatta' sign located at an elevation of around 450 metres in the Hajar Mountains that provide the picturesque town with a stunning backdrop and serve as the gateway to exploring the area.
