If you’re looking for a relaxing beach vacation with stunning views of the Dubai city skyline, intermingled with views of the vast expanse of the Arabian Gulf, then a stay at The Palm Jumeirah is for you. You’ll feel a lot more secluded from the city dwellers and travellers, and you won’t ever need to leave the island to get everything you need.
