The Al-Hatta Fort Hotel

by DesertRat about The Al-Hatta Fort Hotel

Around $110 a night per double. This collection of cathedral-ceilinged bungalows lies on a hillside above the village of Al-Hatta. It has all the amenities and then some, e.g., even an archery range. Though not exactly cheap, it's reasonable value for money considering the cost of hotels in the region. The food is good, the service in the restaurant is excellent. Rooms are very, very large and beautifully appointed with both AC and ceiling fans. Reservations are highly recommended -- and an absolute 'must' during the two 'Eid's, the Emirati and Omani National Day celebrations, and the Dubai Shopping Festival.

We used to go on a Friday (which was the only day off work) every other month with quite a few friends to relax in the pool and have lunch.

Jeema Restaurant at the Hatta Fort Hotel
superb french food, completely unexpected, a real gem. The chef is a wonderful fellow who will truly enjoy creating a special culinary experience for you. Be *sure* to have something hand-prepared at the table, a caesar salad or a flambee desert! Strawberries Flambee

visa run during eid adha 2009 (on 27th or before 29th Nov 2009)

by m4d_sci3ntist

Hi. I will be in Dubai from 29th Oct and I need to do visa run from Oman (before 29th Nov 2009). i want to know, can i simply rent a car in Dubai (without permission letter) to enter Oman (for car insurance) and 'U-turn' just to renew my visa? Or is there anyone want to renew theirs and probably i could join u guys. hopefully we could split some cost for the visa run.

by Rima_Z

not sure if u can rent a car without the letter.. but more importantly not sure if u'll even find one since its adha and they'll all be taken..
Moreover, u cant u-turn unless ur a citizen of one of the 33 "priveledged" countries...all others have to take a flight... check with immigration website to be sure..i think its DNRD.Gov.ae...
good luck

Hi there,
The period of visa can be up to 3 months, so getting to Dubai on October you wouldn't need a visa change during Novwmber.

I used to do the Dubai/Oman visa run past Hatta for a number of years (thank goodness don't have to anymore)... this was never a problem.

However, I have heard from quite a few sources (and some friends experienced it) that with the new, stricter UAE visa rules there are now more restrictions and the authorities are trying to avoid such "visa runs". Apparently it's not so straight forward anymore and especially upon entering Oman the border patrols can make it very hard or even impossible, stating that they want to see proof of a hotel confirmation in Oman itself (basically confirming that you're visiting Oman and not just doing a U-turn after the border and heading back across.)

We used to rent a car (get insurance cover for Oman, definitely), get our papers stamped at the small visa office at the Hatta Fort Hotel and then head across.

However, as said before, I'm really not sure if it's easily possible anymore these days. I've known quite a few people that have been turned away and were then forced to do the visa run to Doha/Qatar on a flight.

cheapest visa run

by r0ttan

Need to renew my 60 day visa (european community passport) since I will be here 7 days more. I can apply at Imigration office, but that will cost 500 Dhs. I could also fly to Muscat, Kesh or Doha.. but that would also probably cost about 500. Anyone know if you get an exit stamp when traveling to Oman by car? Believe that renting a car and going over the border at Hatta for a few hours would be cheapest, but not sure if that is possible?
Other suggestions maybe?

I believe two way fare to Kish from Dubai or Sharjah would be less than $100 just check it with an airline agency. (Air travel is the safest mode of travel :-)

Walk It

by Ali&Steve

Ali & I did meet up with someone at the Wajajah crossing (Hatta) who just drove to the visa office, parked the car, got a visa stamp, walked to the Omani side, walked back on the other side and got his exit stamp. You will not be able to take a hire car into Oman. I believe that a new Dubai entry visa could then be stamped at the office just in the entry gate of the Hatta Fort Hotel on the way back. You may just wish to call in this office on the way out to Wajajah in case the Omani authorities require a UAE exit stamp before giving you an Omani entry visa.

Doesn't it show that this whole visa renewal business is total tosh and just a revenue generating scheme.


Desert Safari for the elderly!

by Judith.W

Hi, and Merry Christmas to all!

I live here now but have a question, if anyone can help. My parents are coming over for a holiday at the end of March/beginning of April. Can anyone recommend a safari of some sort that's not too bumpy....ie no dune bashing etc. My dad wants to do this and is going on about a Safari to all sorts of places - they are both in their late 60's. I thought about just driving them to the Hatta Fort Hotel ourselves, maybe this would be good, but maybe not as good as a safari through an agency, so if anyone has any suggestions or have been on any themselves it would be good to hear from you.

Thanks and have a good new year as well.
