A new addition to the polo sport in Dubai: The Polo Masters Cup 2016 will be the first tournament that will be held at Al Habtoor Polo Resort and Club.

The newly developed Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort, located in DubaiLand will be a horse lovers dream. The Andalusian-style development will include luxury villas – including St. Regis branded ones. There will also be an academy offering multiple disciplines from traditional horse-riding, dressage, show jumping and polo; state-of-the-art stable and a club to rival age-old sporting institutions in the West.

The centerpiece of the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club will be a five-star St. Regis hotel, a brand that has long been associated with polo, since the turn of the 20th century in fact. However it marks the first-ever St. Regis polo resort.
