Tamouh’s Wadi Adventure Opens in the UAE
Abu Dhabi-UAE: 30 April, 2012 – Tamouh, Reem Island’s master developer headquartered in Abu Dhabi, today announced the official opening of Wadi Adventure at Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain, the Middle East’s first man-made facility to offer white water rafting, kayaking and surfing.
Apart from the three world-class white water rafting and kayaking runs adding up to a combined length of 1,133 metres, the adventure park features a surf pool that generates three-metre high waves every 90 seconds. Located at a convenient distance from Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Wadi Adventure enriches Jebel Hafeet’s offering for thrill seekers through its activities such as a challenging rope course, tough climbing wall and a zip line.
With a capacity of up to 1,000 people, the Summits Event Centre at the park is ideal for hosting events such as product launches, corporate meets and team building activities, as well as weddings and birthday parties. The backdrop of Jebel Hafeet’s mountains, lakes and rivers provides a picturesque location for events.
Wadi Adventure also features a number of food and beverage outlets in addition to retail stores that complement its value-added positioning as a unique venue for group and corporate activities.
Joe Ong, Managing Director, Tamouh, said: “We are delighted to launch Wadi Adventure, which marks Tamouh’s foray into the entertainment sector and adds a new feature to Al Ain’s tourist map. The region’s first man-made water park, the destination contributes to Abu Dhabi’s vision to position itself as a key tourist attraction. Over the past three years, it has been our privilege to work closely with Abu Dhabi’s government on the development of Wadi Adventure. We look forward to welcoming both UAE residents and international tourists to the park and offering adventure and water activities in a safe environment.”
Ideal for professional surfers, amateurs and families, the services in the facility and the project offering conforms to stringent safety standards for ensuring visitor welfare. All guests are briefed on safety instructions prior to entering the facility and monitored by professional guides during their visit. Water-sport enthusiasts are also taught to surf in a controlled environment with certified instructors, while the waves are adjusted to fit individual skill and experience.
Tamouh was established in May 2005 with the vision of contributing to Abu Dhabi's growth and facilitating its transformation into the region's finest financial and touristic centre in line with Plan Abu Dhabi 2030. To date, Tamouh has been involved in developing and selling projects to institutional investors. The handover of the illustrious marina development, Marina Square, was the highlight of the company’s recent participation in Cityscape Abu Dhabi.
