Mad­i­nat Jumeirah

Let's Travel - - BEYOND -

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.
