Polo fans rejoice … St. Regis will be opening the first St. Regis polo resort in Dubai in partnership with Al Habtoor Group LLC. The St. Regis Dubai Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club will include a six million-square-foot equestrian complex and is set to open in early 2017.

Two years will be well worth the wait, as the resort will have 136 guest rooms, 24 signature bungalows and 138 residential villas. Guests may elect to stay in a residential villa in order to join the riding school, complete with 500 stables, or to leave ample time to visit the four world-class polo fields. The guests will also be able to participate in the polo academy, which will include programs like riding and show jumping for all ages.

British architects WS Atkins & Partners will complete the design of the resort, and the property will be part of Dubailand, which will have various sports, shopping and entertainment attractions. Dubailand hopes to boost Dubai’s annual tourist numbers by 15 million, and it will be located just 25 minutes from the Dubai International Airport.
