Madinat Jumeirah is located adjacent to sister properties Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Burj Al Arab and Wild Wadi Water Park and is a leisurely half hour drive from Dubai International Airport. The resort is authentically Arabian-styled featuring unique UAE architecture and design that encompasses three core components; two grand boutique hotels and clusters of 29 traditional Arabic summer houses among the gardens and waterways, all built around the souk, the traditional centre of Arabic life at the heart of the resort.
Mina A’ Salam or ‘The Harbour of Peace’ can be identified by its sand coloured wind towers and unique shape whilst Al Qasr, which literally translates to ‘the Palace’, was designed to reflect a Sheikh’s summer residence and is therefore lighter in colour and elevated to emphasise its splendour.
Inspired by the traditional Arabian courtyard summer houses, the stand-alone, two-storey residential retreats of Dar Al Masyaf, which represent the premium accommodation within the resort, suit guests seeking a more intimate hideaway. An intricate waterway system links all areas of the resort and are serviced by abras (water taxi’s) offering guests alternative transportation and a great way to view the resort.
