Jumeirah is one of the most sought-after residential areas along the coast of Dubai.
This waterfront community has a vibrant seaside feel and is also known for its proximity to one of the greatest hotels in the world, Burj Al Arab. The properties range from private villas to townhouses and even a few low-rise apartment buildings. Jumeirah Dubai creates a perfect neighbourhood for anyone looking for a lively yet tranquil residence.
Jumeirah is home to many villa compounds, most of which are the best-known compounds in Dubai. Living in villa compounds is a popular choice due to the accessibility to communal facilities and the security of living in a gated complex.
The community is not short of amenities itself, on top of that, there are many other places close by making the life of residents easier. The ‘it’ destination of the emirate, Downtown Dubai, which houses the mammoth shopping and entertainment destination Dubai Mall, is only a 10-minute drive away.
If you’d like to stay in the community itself, Jumeirah Dubai is home to many smaller shopping malls such as The Village Mall, Palm Strip Mall, Sunset Mall and more. The connecting route of Sheikh Zayed Road is 10 to 15 minutes away, depending on where you are within the community.
Located alongside the water, there are plenty of beaches for residents to visit. For a breezy day out on a summer afternoon or a chilly night along the waves, the residents of the community can head to the urban Jumeirah Beach, surrounded by high-rise hotels. Sunset Beach, also known as Umm Suqeim Beach, has a perfect ambience with the view of the iconic Burj Al Arab.
The beachfront development by Meraas, La Mer is a great spot to relax by the beach, it also offers a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops. This is quite convenient for the residents as it is located 5 to 15 minutes away, depending on where you are in the neighbourhood. Another option would be Kite Beach, it is about 10 to 20 minutes away and is one of the ideal spots for a fun-day-out.
