The Jewel of Dubai

The Jewel of Dubai

Inspired by the city’s old Bastakiya neighbourhood, Madinat Jumeirah was designed to capture the spirit of Dubai.

The team responsible for creating the resort was encouraged to visit Dubai Creek and the Al Fahidi historical neighbourhood to take ideas from the water ways, abras, architecture, wind towers and labyrinth of narrow alleyways which date back to the 1890s.

The end result was Madinat Jumeirah, an authentic recreation of old-world Arabia which officially opened in October 2004. Renowned for its outstanding beauty and authentic Middle Eastern architecture, the 3km of meandering waterways have become a defining feature. Guests can explore the resort on the traditional abra boats and discover why Madinat Jumeirah is the jewel of Dubai.
