La Mer showcases an inflatable playground ‘Hawa Hawa’


Residents of UAE can now explore an new unique concept – Hawa Hawa – an inflatable playground for children, teenagers and adults at La Mer. The dune-shaped concept originates from Japan, where it has been installed in public parks and other open spaces. Hawa Hawa is also the first-of-its-outside of East Asia, with two unique dunes and seven peaks where families and friends can share some low-impact, high-intensity fun together.

The imaginative playground was created to enrich lives of residents and visitors to Dubai, and to promote a lifestyle that will enable more people to enjoy physical and emotional health benefits associated with a great cardiovascular activity.

The small dune is specifically for children aged six-years old and under to work on their balance, build confidence or play in a safe and controlled environment, while the separate large dune is intended for visitors aged seven-years old and over to run, jump, climb, tag, roll and slide around.

The attraction is open between 10am and 10pm on weekdays and 10am to midnight during weekends, with only those under 12-years old requiring adult supervision. The experience has no minimum age at limit, and the maximum weight of 99 kilograms. The venue can also be used to accommodate private birthday parties and other celebrations.

La Mer also showcases showers, toilets with baby changing and disabled access, free wifi, information hubs, mobile charging, prayer rooms, four children’s playground areas and over 1,000 dedicated parking spaces.
