Madinat Jumeirah - Jumeirah Luxury City

Sergey Dolya • 5 minutes read • March 31st, 2016

It is thought that more expensive items come in smaller quantities, limited numbers and are designed for only a specific range of people. More often than not, this is true but there are some exceptions. For example, a big hotel is usually associated with an anthill - a lot of people and staff. However, if the hotel's property expands to a phenomenal size, where one coastline takes up more than 1 mile (2 kilometers), it turns from a 'grand hotel' into a fabulous garden city. This is exactly how the Madinat Jumeirah - Jumeirah City - was created.
As you continue to read through this review, I'll showcase this incredible complex consisting of several Jumeirah Hotels: Al Qasr, Mina A 'Salam and Dar Al Masyaf. All the space between the buildings including hotel complexes, numerous restaurants, fitness and spa centers, is surrounded by gardens and connected by water canals with a total length of almost 2 miles (3 kilometers). If you are tired of riding the bus or walking, you can take a boat and ride along the well-kept gardens and outdoor restaurants.

Boats make trips along the canals constantly. You just have to stand by the water, raise your hand and you will be invited onboard:

The most recent hotel in the complex is Jumeirah Al Qasr. Hotels can be distinguished from each other by the shape of the wind towers. Previously, these wind towers acted as an air conditioning system; wet sails were strained within the towers and the wind blowing through cooled the building:

Of course, today they simply perform a decorative function and remind us that only the noble and rich can afford such features:

This is another construction of wind towers in the Mina A'Salam hotel:

Royal Villas are part of the Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf hotel:

When we arrived in 


, some kind of offbeat event was taking place, even though it was raining:

Nevertheless, lifeguards were at every pool and they regularly monitored the situation on the water. They are strictly forbidden to be on their phones, even if there are no visitors:

Madinat Jumeirah has many public structures. For example, a sports pool with seven tracks, a huge gym with various exercise machines, etc.
Infinitely long beaches inspire visitors to walk:

Near our hotel was another famous Jumeirah complex, popularly known as 'The Wave':

Burj Al Arab

stands opposite:

Nightlife was pulsing. People sailed from restaurant to restaurant on boats:

There were cozy terraces on opposite sides of the canal. It was very romantic - stars in the sky, boats nearby, and nice views all around:

Since we are talking about restaurants, I want to showcase the local cuisine. As a guest of the 

Madinat Jumeirah

, you can visit different restaurants - it was very comfortable and interesting. The menus are different everywhere and there was a large selection of dishes:

These are the sweetest juices squeezed from ripe fruits and vegetables:

There is a pool with rose petals at the entrance to the Al Qasr:

One more hotel restaurant:

This is an Egg Station - a place where you can order eggs or omelets of any kind:

And this is a stand with all kinds of smoothies:

Porridge, yogurt, dried fruit - this was a happy hunting ground for me:

Here, juices are made from fresh fruits:

In addition, there was a giant conference center in Madinat Jumeirah for festivals, meetings and corporate events:

This is a long pier with a restaurant at the end:

I didn't like the cuisine in this restaurant:

You can easily lose track of the time in Madinat Jumeirah, and end up spending the whole night outside. This is a place I highly recommend!
