Al Shaqab Hotel

This high-profile, 7* hotel complex sits on what was previously desert in between an international equestrian centre and a luxury golf course.

The scheme combines with a major equestrian facility and is themed to link with equestrian activities, including a training track and three-day event.

Project details

  • 7 star hotel complex
  • 70 luxury rooms
  • On-site equestrian centre, including a training track and three-day event
  • Luxury golf course


Our team of landscape designers worked with David Chipperfield Architects, VOGT and Veretec to create two key sections, the first of which is hotel accommodation in the form of 70 luxury rooms and leisure facilities – as well as villas, which were designed to accommodate horses.

The landscape concept is based on the contrast between the ‘extensive’ dry woodland environment, which is proposed for the greater part of the site, and the richly diverse ‘intensive’ environment that defines the central oasis at the heart of the hotel.
