Well, Dubai has never been on my bucket list, not really my thing, so off I went with an open mind, not knowing what to expect…
But I think after my first visit to Dubai I can honestly say I LOVED it! ❤️
My huge thanks to If Only, Luxury Tour Operator and Jumeirah Hotels for hosting this incredible trip.
Impeccable service, world class restaurants and fine dining, magnificent architecture, I was blown away!
⭐️My Highlights and amazing memories⭐️
✨The absolutely stunning architecture, I was in awe!
✨The Supercars, just WOW!
✨Jeep Safari over the sand dunes with the stunning desert sunset. A fantastic evening.
✨The incredible Fountain show at the Burj Khalifa, the worlds tallest building, just WOW, what a show.
✨Wild Wadi Water Park (Unlimited Entry included for Jumeriah guests)
✨A tour of the iconic Jumeriah Burj Al Arab with Lobster for Lunch, this was an actual dream come true! Never before have I been more amazed by a hotel, its in a whole other league.
✨The breathtaking views across Dubai City from the Jumeriah Towers
✨The souk in Madinat Jumeriah, fully air conditioned with restaurants and a traditional Arabian market feel. Be sure to take home some beautiful Arabian fragrances, or if your budget allows, have a peep in the incredible jewellery stores…..I can dream! 💎
For this visit to Dubai I was lucky enough to stay at the Madinat Jumeriah Resort.
This resort has 4 proprties within it and is set across its own 2km of powder white stunning private beach.
Madinat Jumeirah Resort is an authentic recreation of ancient Arabia, capturing the natural beauty of the region.
Madinat Jumeirah comprises of 4 amazing properties;
✨Jumeirah Al Qasr, Real Arabian charm
✨Jumeirah Mina A’Salam Great for families
✨Jumeirah Al Naseem; Luxurious hotel with stunning views of the Burj Al Arab
✨Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf; Traditional Villas and summer houses with butler service
Madinat Jumeirah Resort also features over 50 restaurants, ranging from Tapas to Seafood, 🍤Thai, Steakhouse and fine dining. Be sure to stay half board as the dining is some of the best I have ever had in the world.
🍸🍹Themed and relaxed bars with a great atmosphere are dotted around the resort too. The jewel in the crown has to be that all the facilities in the Madinat are interconnected by 3 kilometres of waterways and beautifully landscaped gardens. 🌺Jump on one of the buggys or catch an Abra (Arabian boat) sit back and relax to your chosen destination within the resort.
The resort also provides extensive leisure and health facilities including Talise Spa and Talise Fitness, as well as Souk Madinat Jumeirah, a traditional retail and dining experience showcasing the best of Arabia.🍸
The service was outstanding, the whole resort had elegance, stunning style, high class attention to detail and the fresh flowers in each hotel were just unbelievable. 🌺🌺
All this located just 25 minutes away from Dubai International Airport, Madinat Jumeirah is situated conveniently for access to Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City, the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina. It has THE BEST views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, and is next to Wild Wadi Waterpark xand Jumeirah Beach Hotel, and 10 minutes by car to the nearest shopping mall.
The complimentary shuttle bus service is brilliant and available to all guests to the mall and metro station.
My stay in Dubai surpassed all my expectations. I didn’t have Dubai on my bucket list, but now I am lucky enough to be able to put it on yours!
