Who lives here?
This is a community that mainly attracts professional expat couples and families. There’s an air of exclusivity and privacy here due to the location, yet it’s also the kind of place where neighbours socialise around BBQ areas and the children play together. The lush green landscaping and planting offers plenty of quiet picnic spots and it’s also a very dog-friendly neighbourhood. All in all, Arabian Ranches is a perfect suburban oasis.
Health and wellness
Arabian Ranches allows for a truly active lifestyle with the specially built 150km Dubai Cycle Track close by for those who like a serene ride through the desert. Meanwhile, the Polo Club offers polo (obviously), riding lessons, show jumping lessons, exercise classes – as well having a rejuvenating spa with a range of pampering treatments (don’t miss the Balinese Massage). As you would expect, the Arabian Ranches Golf Club offers golf in all its forms on a perfectly manicured 18-hole course, welcoming beginners and serious players alike.
Nurseries & schools
A major appeal of Arabian Ranches for families is the number of quality nurseries and schools located nearby. There’s the popular The Ranches Nursery and Primary School, Raffles Nursery, and JESS (Jumeirah English Speaking School) Primary and Secondary. Additionally, Raffles International School, Gems World Academy, American School of Dubai, and the new Kings School in Al Barsha are within easy driving distance or accessible by school bus.
Type of development
This is a townhouse and villa only community of more than 4,000 properties – all with an Arabian and Mediterranean inspired design aesthetic. The homes range from two bedroomed townhouses to six bedroomed luxurious Golf and Polo Homes, all with different styles and layouts. Some directly back out onto parks, and some have their own swimming pools. Lucky residents in sub-areas like Saheel, Savannah, Hattan, and Mirador enjoy a lovely view over the fairways.
Eat, drink, shop
Both Dubai Equestrian & Polo Club and the Arabian Ranches Golf Club have stylish bars and restaurants for easy socialising. Plus, at the heart of the community lies the Arabian Ranches Community Centre, boasting around 20 retail outlets, a Geant supermarket, a pharmacy, a pet shop, a travel agent, a beauty salon, and a range of top eateries like Maison Mathis and The Hamptons Cafe.
Arabian Ranches in five words…
Exclusive, green, spacious, secure, sporty.
