Which Emirates Living community is for you?

Scenic settings and an upscale neighbourhood, this gated villa community offers the perfect location for Dubai’s notoriously glamorous lifestyle whilst still being extremely family-friendly. Emirates Living is the first large scale development of its kind across the entire Middle Eastern region. The development consists of five different communities: Emirates Hills, The Springs, The Meadows, The Lakes and Hattan. This master development was led by Dubai’s leading real estate developer, Emaar. 

Located amidst sparkling lakes and verdant sprawling landscapes, Emirates Living offers an extensive range of magnificent villas and elegant low-rise apartments in numerous layouts and sizes. These modern living spaces are equipped with modern amenities that ensure a comfortable lifestyle for residents. 

Emirates living

Emirates Living is nestled within new Dubai but is not so far away that its residents can’t take delight in the hustle and bustle of the city. The neighbourhood is home to many expatriates including Western, Arab, GCC and Indian nationalities. 

Featuring some of Dubai’s most desirable residential properties, Emirates Living is centred around the oldest and most notable golf courses in the emirate, Montgomerie Golf Course and Emirates Golf Club. The amenities of the development guarantee to encourage the lively spirit of its residents. The Lakes Club features a range of entertaining activities that are always on offer for families and couples alike. 

The well-planned neighbourhood is designed with the priority of offering an exclusive living arrangement that represents the glamorous essence of Dubai. Palm trees are perched along the avenues that wind through the community and each property or cluster is surrounded by artfully manicured lawns. The development also features a range of recreational centres, retail shopping areas, and other activities. Emirates Living is also conveniently located near many educational institutions and healthcare facilities. The centrally-located Emirates Living community also ensures peace of mind for all its residents by providing 24-hour security and maintenance support. 

In this community, you may choose your next home from an array of residential properties: a 3-bedroom semi-detached villa in The Springs? A luxurious home with traditional flair in Hattan? Or maybe you’d prefer a sprawling 15,000 sq. ft. Emirates Hills mansion. A chance to bask in the beautifully designed interiors and scenic exteriors no matter which of the communities you choose, Emirates Living guarantees the ultimate experience! Read on to learn more about each of the individual communities so you can determine which is the one for you.

Emirates Hills 

Embracing ultra-luxury, Emirates Hills spans over a striking landscape and boasts an evident hint of the upscale city of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills. A sophisticated neighbourhood, this flagship community consists of magnificent villas each exhibiting unique and tasteful architecture. The lush green landscaping of this elegant neighbourhood is embellished with the most elite property range: Dyaar Al Hambra, Signature Villas and Maisonettes, making it one of the most desirable residential communities in Emirates Living.

The overlooking fairways of the world-class 18-hole Montgomerie golf course make Emirates Hills a golfer’s heaven. Residents can choose their homes from a range of ready-made elegant villas or plots of land where they can customise their own dream homes. 

Each property is built on plot sizes ranging from 12,000 to 45,000 sq. ft. The number of bedrooms start at four and go up to ten. The area is enveloped in greenery and features 17 jaw-dropping lakes. It is closely located to a few of Dubai’s most prestigious schools and is home to notable figures from all corners of the world, making it one of Dubai’s most upscale neighbourhoods.

Emirates Hills’ sophisticated properties are notable for being classified as first freehold properties to be on the market across the emirate. 

The Springs 

Another luxurious and family-oriented neighbourhood, The Springs features 14 different sub-communities, each boasting world-class amenities and private entrances. The Springs consists of a collection of 4,856 townhouses and villas starting with two-bedrooms and going up to five. These housing options are designed with spacious living rooms, cosy bedrooms and exclusive backyards and each townhouse features a dedicated entrance.

The scenic waters of the 28 lakes are the highlights of this gated community. The residents can enjoy a delightful evening at the many community retail centres, restaurants, swimming pools, lush parks and at the community’s many fitness facilities. 

The Springs is nestled in its own haven, close to but very separate from the excitement of the city. The community is not located too far away from the most popular areas of Dubai. The families looking to enjoy a fun evening in nearby Dubai Marina or Jumeriah Beach Residence (JBR) can get there easily and quickly from their homes in The Springs. 

The Meadows

Tranquil and verdant, The Meadows neighbourhood is aptly named for its artfully designed landscape. This master-planned community is built with a calming green backdrop in welcoming contrast to the rest of the buzzing emirate of Dubai. The community consists of around 1,800 luxurious villas custom-designed with numerous architectural techniques and styles. The villas in The Meadows are split into several clusters. These are located in separate areas of the neighbourhood – each cluster has a dedicated entrance. 

The number of bedrooms in the two-story villas ranges from three to seven. Fashioned with ultra-modern amenities, these sophisticated housing options boast ceramic flooring, spacious bedrooms, and marble stairs. The large contemporary living room areas feature high ceilings and the kitchens come with high gloss cabinetry. 

The Meadows is symbolic of the perfect balance between exclusivity and convenience. It is also located close to the buzzing epicentres of the emirate. Getting to Dubai Marina, Dubai Internet City or the Knowledge Village is a breeze. The Meadows is the ultimate living solution for both professionals and families alike. 

The Meadows offers so much more than just an upscale living space for its residents. The neighbourhood is designed with an extensive range of lifestyle amenities such as 6 adult swimming pools, 6 children’s swimming pools, play areas, cafés, restaurants, and shopping centres. The residents can also enjoy the occasional golf game in the neighbouring Montgomerie Golf Course. This superb community also offers community retail centres and modern fitness facilities.

The Lakes

This quaint community offers its residents a serene haven away from the bustling heart of Dubai. The scenic waterways that run through the community are the highlight of this exclusive neighbourhood. The Lakes is categorised into five sub-communities, Deema, Maeen, Ghadeer, Zulal and Forat. The community is home to 996 villas designed in more than 10 different architectural styles. The properties in The Lakes are a collection of sophisticated freehold mansion-like villas with three to five bedrooms. The square footage of the properties ranges from 2,100 to 3,100 sq. ft. 

Each property in The Lakes is inspired by unique, expert architectural designs that offer a lavish, yet contemporary living space. 

Not every evening has to be the same in The Lakes thanks to its many communal amenities. The residents can enjoy an evening of golf at the Lakes Club. Or an active evening at the community centre that spans across 30,000 sq. ft. and features a fitness centre, convenience store, restaurants, and a daycare centre. The volleyball, tennis and squash courts often attract the active residents of the community. 

The Lakes is closely located to Dubai Internet City, Media City, Knowledge Village as well as other luxurious neighbourhoods in the Emirates Living. The Lakes features 6 landscaped parks and 10 outdoor kids’ play areas. This sophisticated gated community offers a comfortable home to professionals, families, and couples looking for a secure living space that promotes an active and cosy lifestyle. 


A smaller-scale neighbourhood in Emirates Living, Hattan consists of 162 luxurious and exclusive villas. Inspired by the finest architectural designs whilst featuring a traditional touch, these villas are some of the most desirable living spaces in Dubai. 

The modest community is certainly not without its luxurious attributes that appeal to the glamorous residents of the emirate of Dubai. The enclave boasts a touch of contemporary design in an otherwise traditional Arabian surrounding. Each property is equipped with modern amenities. The interiors of the villas have been intricately designed to the highest standard of finish throughout.
