Al Ain to boost tourism potential


Visitors and health buffs visiting Al Ain will soon rid their aches in specially designed hot springs.

Separate health bath facilities for males and females are under construction at Mubazzarah, an emerging picnic spot in the city.
A Gulf News report said the project is part of a master plan designed to make Al Ain an international tourist centre.
The project includes, apart from beautification , a spring resort, mineral spring pools, a big lake, club house and golf course, visitors’ centres, planetarium, cableway and conference centre.
Once complete, the one-stop green tourist resort is expected to lure tourists from the Gulf region as well as from around the world.
The hot spring resort is one of the most exciting additions to the Garden City. Construction work is going on round-the-clock on the different facilities, including landscaping and greening of the area.
Mubazzarah, in the foothills of the country’s highest mountain Jebel Hafeet, comes under Al Ain Municipality and Town Planning Department and it has been under the focus of Al Ain Economic Development and Tourism Authority for several years, said the report.
Both the authority and the municipality want to develop the area into a complete tourist resort, officials said.
