Emirates Hills (Arabic: تلال الإمارات‎) is a gated community located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It has been named after Beverly Hills. Emirates Hills is largely home to the expatriate community of Dubai, as it consists of the first freehold properties to be sold in the city. While the project was classified as freehold and open to anyone to purchase, the majority of owners hail from the Indian subcontinent, Iran and Western Europe.

Although the developer, Emaar Properties, pioneered the idea of freehold property in Dubai, this is Emaar's only project where land was sold per square foot to individuals to build the house of their choice. Over time, all the plots were sold. Some of the residents included the late Benazir Bhutto (although her family still lives there),[1][2][3] the managing director of Géant Middle East (Mohammed Ayub Shaikh), and the owners of the Middle East Broadcasting Center and Habib Bank.[4]

Emirates Hills properties look out over the fairways of the Montgomerie[1], an 18-hole Championship Golf Course created by architect Desmond Muirhead and seven-time European Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie.
