Run-of-the-mill holidays are a thing of the past, as you discover the host of exciting experiences and holiday activities on offer at JA’s Resorts and Hotels

Par with the pros in Dubai 

Follow in the golf putts of Tiger Woods as you hit around the beautifully landscaped, sea-view, 50-acre course. The par 35 golf course nestled within the grounds of JA The Resort has played host to golfing legends such as Ernie Els. And if you’re not a pro yet, don’t fret as the qualified professionals at the on-site David Leadbetter Golf Academy are there to lend a helping swing. 

Take the plunge in the Maldives 

Dive deep as you explore the depths of the Haa Alif Atoll reef. Be guided by the PADI and SSI certified team around one of the most pristine diving sites in the world. What’s more, JA Manafaru Maldives is the only resort operating in the surrounding area, so a private experience can be guaranteed. 

Bike the Hatta mountains 

Thrill seekers should take to the mountainous landscape of Hatta on a rented mountain bike from JA Hatta Fort Hotel. Experienced bikers can take a free ride around the scenic landscape, while those who prefer to follow a course can blaze through the mapped trails. 

Explore the Indian ocean by kayak 

A picturesque setting, the Seychelles yearns to be explored and what better way to do then out on the clear waters of the ocean. Aboard your kayak, included with villas at JA Enchanted Island Resort and hit the calming waters, if you’re lucky spotting colourful marine life as you go. 

Seaplane across Dubai’s iconic skyline 

Take to the Dubai’s sky in a seaplane tour at JA The Resort where you’ll have a premium view of the city’s ever-evolving coastal skyline. Taking off from the resort’s private marina, the state-of-the-art seaplane provides stunning vistas of Dubai’s famous attractions including the Burj Al-Arab and Palm Jumeirah.
