Often Madinat Jumeirah is unofficially regarded as Dubai’s ’6 star resort’ – and little wonder, for it’s a by-word for beauty and luxury, nothing less! The look and feel, with its connected waterways and ancient Arabic-style architecture, owes much to its sea-faring past, a time dominated by fishermen, pearl divers and traders. The resort offers a magnificent range of accommodation, from the exquisitely-styled Mina A’ Salam hotel nestling on the edge of the Arabian Gulf, and the fabulous Al Qasr hotel, the jewel of Madinat Jumeirah and designed to reflect a sheikh’s summer residence, to the exquisite Arabian summer houses at Dar Al Masyaf, and the spacious opulence, seclusion and impeccable service at Malakiya Villas.
And what about shopping and dining out? How about the 95 retail boutiques and the 40 or so restaurants and bars of the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. There’s nothing quite like this traditional Arabian souk with its wind towers, lantern lit hallways and narrow waterways. Incredible.
When it comes to luxury, opulence and excellence of service, Le Royal Meridien Dubai has it all. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the amazing reviews on the web. Here’s just the tiniest snapshot…“one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, staff were fantastic”…“food, drinks and service are amazing”…“I would not consider going anywhere else in Dubai”…“have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world and this was a very high standard”. Kind of says it all!
