Tranquil and scenic with water-views, parks and landscaped greenery, the Lakes sets the tone for expatriate living in Dubai. Its villas are situated between two world-class golf courses, The Montgomery at Emirates Hills and Emirates Golf Course - the scene of the prestigious Dubai Desert Classic tournament. The residents of purchased villas enjoy a community center, The Lakes Club which offers sporting and dinning facilities.

What To Expect

Family Friendly Amenities

I always describe the Lakes as an oasis in the heart of the city. Residents enjoy all the benefits and privacy of villa living, with gardens and lush greenery, but the dramatic skyline of JLT and the Marina on the near horizon reminds them they are only minutes from the bustle and convenience of city life.

Owned by the master developer; Emaar Properties, and considered a part of Emirates Living is the popular family-oriented community of The Lakes. Amidst pleasant surroundings, The Lakes houses various activities for adults and children alike; the development offers 11 community pools and parks, 10 community playgrounds and BBQ areas, a games room for adults, a basketball court, 2 tennis courts, a squash court and a football field, 3 nurseries and a school, an outdoor gym and a Fitness First branch, a fine-dining restaurant; Reform Social & Grill, preferred supermarkets; Choithrams and Spinneys, salons, and gorgeous views of 7 different lakes. The amenities the club has to offer leaves no reason behind for residents to travel long distances for everyday necessities.

A series of connected walkways link the six communities in the vicinity to a community center; a leisurely destination for residents is The Lakes Community Club, featuring Fitness First. Offering a variety of membership packages, including family memberships, the club hosts an array of facilities to cater to the needs of all inhabitants.

Originated from London is Dubai's first true gastropub in The Lakes. A neighbourly restaurant that is based on one of London's most sought-after and vibrant venues, featuring the same name as the international site; Reform Social & Grill. The scenic views of a beautiful garden, right beside the splendid lakeside setting make the restaurant a top spot for fine-dining. Pork dishes are available in the high-class menu, along with an eccentric bar menu. Starting in the early morning, they serve a vast menu of everything from breakfast to drinks after dinner.

What Not To Expect

Singles Leading A Busy City Life Amidst Skyscrapers

Since the community is very family-oriented in The Lakes, it is very rare to find any singles around as they prefer to live in the center of the happening city. The prices for larger homes are difficult to attain within budget, which is why mostly expatriate families prefer to live in the area. For those who like living amongst the hustle and bustle of a busy city life, the development might seem to be leading a mundane lifestyle with minimal spots for outings and a serene, sober lifestyle. Furthermore, the area is not directly accessible via public transport which can be a hassle for many.

The Lakes is a family-oriented locality.


From Convenience To Luxury; Within Exquisite Facades

The Master Developer, Emaar, is well-regarded as the best in the business, and the community is kept in immaculate condition. New residents, who often move in to the community as they start or grow their families, will enjoy the feeling of space and freedom without having to compromise on the commute. Residents, especially those moving from apartments, will be surprised at the cost saving alongside the high standard of service.

Owned by the master developer; Emaar, and a part of Emirates Living, is one of the first freehold areas in Dubai; The Lakes. The area hosts six established communities; Deema, Forat, Ghadeer, Hattan, Maeen and Zulal. The combined development houses 600 villas in 12 different architectural styles. The housing varies from 3 bedroom townhouses, up to 7 bedroom luxury villas; The Lakes is suited to meet every requirement of its residents.

Beautiful and luxurious facades bring life into the architectural structure of The Lakes.
