This weekend, Dubai Holding’s iconic Hatta Sign, a longstanding landmark that has enthralled both visitors and residents, achieved global recognition by securing the Guinness World Records™ title, “The Tallest Landmark Sign”. The inspiring video highlights the recognition ceremony with Roudi Soubra, Vice President – Asset Management at Dubai Holding Hospitality Assets, accepting the certificate on behalf of Dubai Holding and Hatta, atop the Hajar Mountains. The commanding 19.28-metre-tall structure stands as a striking symbol of Hatta’s identity and its status as a beacon of natural wonder for the emirate.
