Beautiful view of the award-winning garden

Creating your own personal resort at home




An enchanting garden should invite one to linger, lounge and ultimately relax – exactly which was achieved when an ordinary garden in The Lakes, Dubai, was completely transformed into a fabulous, award-winning landscape garden and personal resort.

The Lakes development in Dubai is an established community that serves as a quaint getaway from the bustle of the city. The Lakes’ collection of detached villas and townhouses are set in landscaped common areas with parks and children play areas, swimming pools, lakes and water features, and BBQ areas.

Upon entering the property, one immediately gets an appealing sense of warmth and tranquility, before finally revealing the spectacular back garden.  A meandering stone pathway, nestled with palm, coconut and banana trees, leads through shrubs and pot plants before revealing a tranquil haven for anyone who wishes to set foot in it.

Most definitely the hand-thatched bars, splendid pool (complete with a cave, waterfall and thatched poolbar), elevated decking with sun loungers and semi-shaded timber pergolas that adorn this property, add an unequivocal grandeur to the overall picture.

There can absolutely be no doubt that this award-winning landscape garden is the ultimate dream garden and personal resort the proud owners have envisaged, planned and dreamt about for years.
