In recent years, Dubai has fast grown to become one of the world’s most coveted destinations – and Jumeriah Beach is where it all began. This long strip of white sand is laced by some of the planet’s most luxurious hotels. Gourmet restaurants, infinity pools and helipads are all the norm here. With superb service and outstanding facilities, the hotels here really are among the world’s best. As well all that luxury, holidays in Jumeriah Beach benefit from wonderful attractions, including the exciting Wild Wadi waterpark. Elsewhere, you’ll find excellent shopping, in both modern malls and the ancient souks in the older part of town. Jumeriah Beach is also home to Dubai Marina, where you’ll find plenty of stylish yachts moored up. And because this is the UAE, you can expect sunshine, all year round.
Jumeriah Beach holidays are packed with fun things to see and do. For amazing views, head to the top of Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. If it’s shopping you’re after, take a trip to the famous Dubai Mall, or explore the warrens of the old spice market. Hop on a traditional dhow (boat) across the creek, or board a more modern boat. In Dubai, entertainment is taken to whole new levels: the amazing water parks of Wild Wadi and Atlantis, Ski Dubai indoor slope – even an ice rink. And if all the fun of the city gets too much, head out to the desert for camel rides, quad biking or a jeep safari.
On holidays to Jumeriah Beach, nightlife tends to be based around hotels. These are the only establishments licensed to sell alcohol in the UAE, so hoteliers have quickly adapted to provide a plethora of nightlife options. Whether it’s sipping a cool drink in a glamorous lounge, or dancing until late on a stunning roof deck, you’ll find your perfect evening here.
Fast food? Sushi? Cutting edge cuisine? Whatever your idea of the perfect meal, you’ll find it here. Many hotels in Jumeriah Beach have a wide choice of in-house restaurants, covering everything from local cuisine to Indian, Italian and steakhouses. When it comes to dining al fresco, some of the rooftop terraces in the area afford spectacular views of the city’s bright lights. The hospitality in Dubai is legendary- and that extends to restaurants as well as the magnificent hotels.
