Green Mubazzarah in Al Ain

If you look south when you’re looking out of an upstairs window in Al Ain, you’ll see the mountain Jebel Hafeet (or Jebel Hafit), with the Le Mercure Hotel at the top. This mountain is 1,240 metres high.

It’s a 25-ish minute drive from the Hilton Hotel in Al Ain.ย The steep, windy Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road is more than 7 miles long, and features 21 corners before you get to the top!

At the base is Green Mubazzarah, with hot springs, a lake, swimming pools, chalets to stay at, and more.

To get to either, you drive west from the Hilton towards Abu Dhabi. After you pass the Al Ain English Speaking School on your left, at the next roundabout turn left. You’re now driving south. As you go across a couple of roundabouts you’ll see the Al Ain Paradise Hanging Gardens on your right (see separate post), and soon after, if you have keen eyes, you’ll see this villa with a dhow (boat) on the top, set back from the main road…


Carry on and eventually you get to a roundabout with rams in the middle. You can see Jebel Hafit in the background…


Here are the rams from the side…


Turn left here (it’s all well signposted), and you drive along this road with sculpted bushes…


…and if you look to your right…


Then you arrive at a sign indicating Green Mubazzarah to your right. If you turn right and then right again at the next roundabout, you reach this roundabout…


The next roundabout to the east is this one, and you can see the single-storey chalets behind…


Nested among the chalets is this play area…


Nearby is a man-made boat lake…


…but the blue boats (shown very small on the left below) look unused…


And there’s another play area next to the lake…


Head towards the mountain and you go past this restaurant…


And here it is again from the left-hand side…


100 yards further on the right is this sign…


…with the ‘trains’ behind…


…and the track to the left…


Another few hundred yards later you reach this large area. I think that’s some kind of palace on the hillside, and there’s a play area below it…


…and another to the side of it…


Close by are 4 buildings containing swimming pools: 2 for men and children, and 2 for women only (aged 12 and upwards). The building below is for men. The pool inside is about two thirds the size of a tennis court. The attendants wouldn’t let me take a photo, referring me to the clear regulations printed on the wall outside. However I went inside and dipped a foot in the water: it was pretty hot. Entry is 5 AED (less than ยฃ1). You can see an attendant sitting outside the pool building below…


This is one of the women’s pools…


Opposite are these 2 views…



There’s a restaurant nearby…


Here are 4 photos from a recent family outing…





Green Mubazzarah is a lovely place to visit, and it’s only about 20 minutes from the Hilton Hotel. You can drive from there to Le Mercure Hotel to spend the afternoon by the pools if you wanted.

Call 03 783 9555ย to make bookings for the chalets.

(I have had a request to use one or more of these photos in a magazine, and asking for the hi-resolution original files, which I happily emailed along in exchange for a credit line in the magazine. If you too would like copies of the hi-resolution originals,ย drop me a line.)

    chalets at GM park. can you tell me how to book these. I searched the web but couldn’t find any information of them.

    The most diusguisting and unhygenic pool i have ever seen!
    Arabic women went straight into pool in their abayas! With dirty feets and dusty clothes they have been wearing outside!
    The pools are separate; I couldnt understand why women were fully covered in female pool! Some even had their sheilas on!
    Toilets didnt have toilet papers; no slippers were allowed inside- the whole place was wet, totally unhygenic and the entire experience was a nightmare! The entrance is AED 10; there is a towel mat at the entrance that appears to be there to clean the feet on as you enter; but i have seen some women go in to see “inspect” with their dusty shoes.
    there are no changing rooms whatsoever; just shelves where you leave your clothes; towels…- totally unwatched. No water sold or provided inside- many women collapsed due to dehydration (i doubt they were aware of this; they probably thought it was because of the hot water in the pool). so those women were lying with their faces on the floor where others were walking!
    Never again! I do not advice anyone to visit this place! I am afraid it isnt very healthy- its utmost unhygenic!!!
