About The Lakes

If you’re looking for a city escape, a family community and peaceful surroundings then you are looking in the right location. The Lakes is a hugely popular townhouse and villa community which makes up part of the Emirates Living developments in Dubai. BBQ areas can be found throughout, fields with football goals are there to be enjoyed and Reform at The Lakes Club will provide the family with delicious food!

The Lakes is home to 600 villas over 6 areas; Maeen, Zulala, Ghadeer, Deema, Hattan, and Forat. Each district has its own security and entry and exit points. The community is landscaped meticulously to provide residents with a homely community surrounded by greenery and lakes.

Most of The Lakes communities offer an exceptional lake view. Walkways can be found around the perimeter of the lakes which make a great place to run with a view, stroll with the dog or just clear your head after a busy day at work. Hattan Villas offer either a lake or Emirates Golf Course View. Emirates Golf Course is one of Dubai’s highly sought-after courses for golf enthusiasts worldwide.

Within The Lakes community, residents can find villas with a range of between 3-6 bedrooms across the six sub-communities. Each villa offers either a study, maids room or a family room with some of the larger villas combining all of these.

There is a total of 11 Community pools and parks in the lakes. 2 pools and parks can be found in Maeen, Zulal, and Hattan. Ghadeer has 1 pool and park with Deema offering residents 4. Forat is situated within walking distance of The Lakes Club and therefore does not have a park or pool within the community. The community pools are well maintained and have a lifeguard on duty.
