OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Part of the popular Jumeirah Beach Residence development, an area especially popular with tourists, the resort is located by Dubai Marina on a large private sandy beach and is about 20 minutes' drive from sights such as the Burj Khalifa and the Mall of the Emirates. Dubai International Airport is around a 35-minute drive in good traffic. A number of attractions are nearby, such as Ain Dubai Ferris Wheel, Skydive Dubai, and The Beach, a leisure development that has restaurants, bars and shops.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester to Dubai take 7 hours. The hotel is a six-minute drive from the airport. Free private parking on-site. Book flights to Dubai.
