Visitors can enjoy 20 rides and year-round attractions that include snowy adventures such as sledding, carousels, zorbing and zip-lining.

Reem Mall, located on Abu Dhabi’s Reem Island and spanning 186,000 SQM of Gross Leasable Area, features more than 400 retail stores and 80 food and beverage outlets and is poised to be a prime destination for residents and tourists.

Reem Mall offers exclusive attractions, a unique retail mix with the latest design concepts, and the largest snow park in the region. It is home to one of the region’s fully integrated omnichannel retail ecosystem with digital, e-commerce, and logistics capabilities.

Reem Mall’s $1.3 billion investment is a significant addition to the tourism industry in Abu Dhabi and the region and will help contribute to the UAE’s National Tourism Strategy 2031, which includes raising the country’s position as one of the best tourism destinations around the world.

The shopping mall was developed by Al Farwaniya Property Developments, a partnership between Agility Global, United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), and the National Real Estate Company (NREC). The three bring a sound financial base, extensive experience in asset management and commercial real estate development, and a successful track record of mall operations.
