One could describe Dubai simply as a former pearl fishing port in the Arabian peninsula that became enormously rich thanks to its oil and gas deposits. But this description however, would not be complete without mentioning one of the major characteristics of this city which receives seven million tourists a year: the madness and extravagance of its architecture and the huge number of building projects. It’s said that 25 percent of all of the world’s worksite cranes are concentrated here. Construction never stops in Dubai. There’s always another skyscraper, hotel or resort being erected, and all in the luxury category. The city is like a gigantic sweets shop for lovers of beautiful things. Dreamed up by sheiks, Dubai has become an internationally renowned city. Designed and built day after day by important hotel groups and corporations, including Emmar Properties which launched and constructed the tallest building in the world, the 800-meter high Burj Khalifa. The Jumeirah group, named after a neighborhood on the Dubai coast, is a government group which has forged its reputation by creating projects including the Hotel Burj Al Arab considered the ultimate in luxury, the Emirates Towers and the famous Beach Hotel in the form of a wave. But their leading project is a resort that is unique in the world: a city within a city.
Madinat Jumeirah signifies Jumeirah city, an appropriate name for this 40-hectare dreamlike, luxurious getaway. Designed and modeled after a traditional Arab citadel, Madinat Jumeirah pays tribute to life on the coast of the peninsula. The resort contains two boutique hotels comprising 292 rooms and suites: the majestic Al Qasr, or palace in Arabic, and the sumptuous Mina A Salam, or haven of peace. In addition, there are 283 exceptional villas and residences under the name, Dar Al Masyaf and 7 ultra modern residences known as the Malakiya Villas. A network of canals crisscrosses this unique complex. Located on Jumeirah beach, the visitor has access to the almost 2-kilometers of private beach. The nearby amusement park is free of charge for hotel residents. In addition, the resort has its own souk, the Souk Madinat with its 75 luxury boutiques. The 44 restaurants and bars mean that guests never have to eat in the same place twice if they so choose. For the sports minded, the Quay Health Club is the largest fitness center in Dubai with a surface of 3,500 square meters, 3 swimming pools and 5 tennis courts. There is even a theatre that offers high quality entertainment. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the Madinat Jumeirah, an undeniable reference in the category of luxury resorts. It’s almost impossible to make an exhaustive list of all its available services. It’s the ideal place for living the Dubai experience without ever having to leave one’s hotel.
Jumeirah means “magnificent” in Arabic, and the Madinat Jumeirah, this magnificent city within a city, truly deserves it name.
