Dubai Marina Overview

At the heart of ‘New Dubai’ the Marina is more than 3 km long and is encircled by a broad, landscaped promenade, a favourite among strollers, walkers, joggers and cyclists. Along the waterfront are numerous restaurants and cafes where you can sit at sunset and watch the 200 surrounding skyscrapers begin to light up to create a spectacular backdrop as the evening dinner cruises glide out to sea.

Most of the skyscrapers are residential and the Marina has its own mall with over 130 shops, a supermarket and a six-screen cinema. There are several hotels and clubs buzzing with night life and by day you can hire a boat, take a tour, or catch one of the regular ferries to Dubai’s historic old town of Deira.

Ninety percent of the 200 or so skyscrapers surrounding the Marina are residential blocks including Princess Tower, the tallest residential building in the world. Add to that the 40 Jumeirah Beach Residence towers catering for 15,000 occupants and it is not hard to understand why the Dubai Marina district is the most densely populated neighbourhood in the country and such a vibrant community.

Like Jumeirah Lake Towers beyond the Marina, this place is a favourite among singles and young families alike.

Dubai Marina Amenities

Pier 7, next door to the mall, describes itself as a ‘seven-storey culinary destination’, while close by is the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, better known for its Ladies Nights than its maritime credentials.

The many hotels in the area provide plenty of choice for the ever-popular Friday brunches, where for a small fortune hard-working people can enjoy a four-hour eat and drink fest. To recover there are plenty of gyms, health clubs and spas around the Marina, while shared pools and public recreation areas provide open space for relaxation and exercise.

The Walk is a bustling boulevard between nearby Jumeirah Beach Residence and the beach and one of the best places for strolling or just sitting and watching the world go by.

Dubai Marina Road Access

The main north-south highway running through Dubai passes right by the Marina, linking it to all parts of the Emirate and to Abu Dhabi which is about an hour’s drive away.

Dubai Marina Public Transport

Unlike many other locations in Dubai, the Marina is a neighbourhood where owning a car is not a prerequisite. It is particularly well served by public transport, having two stations on the metro which runs the length of the city. The Mall of the Emirates is a 15 minute ride, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa 30 minutes, and the airport just under an hour.

A new tram system has helped to ease traffic congestion around the Marina enabling local residents to get about swiftly and easily.

Yacht Bay
Probably the worst building in the Marina. Bad finishing & poor quality of the facilities (pool and gym). Only good point is the proximity to the metro & tram station (JLT).

Maintenance
I have been living in this building for 4 years now, no complaints so far apart from the fact that the maintenance team only services the communal areas, otherwise they charge for any little thing they do in your flat. Apartment sizes are quite large, the building itself is well maintained more… and clean, security is there 24/7 and they know all residents, good location (next to metro/tram, walking distance from JBR etc.).Show less

Al Habtoor Tower, Dubai Marina
The size and layout of the apartment
Nothing, really
We lived there before the Marina was as hectic as it is today. The tower has a great location in the Marina as you access the tower shortly after exit from SZR. Walking distance to Dubai Marina Mall and being located on Marina Walk you have both grocery store more… and lots of restaurants in immediate distance.Show less

Great place to live
Location
Noise from taxi rank at night
Near great supermarkets (May Bury, Spinneys) direct access to and from SZR so no traffic if you drive, right near metro and tram if you don't. You can also walk to Media City and Marina Mall. Some apartments have weird layouts but they are big and the finishings are more… nice. The pool is great and sunny all day.Show less

Love my Apartment
View and the Surroundings.
Will hope for a second parking in my new apartment if I ever leave this apartment. We have only one parking slot available in our building.
I have been in this apartment for the past 2 years. Simply love the whole feeling of being out there. It is nice and spacious. It has full height windows which fills my apartment with daylight. I hardly switch on my lights. The privacy is very well planned. Metro station more… is just a minute walk from my building. Have lots of grocery options which are at walkable distance (4 minutes walk to Spinneys; 1 minute walk to Maybury.) Have lots of spa and beauty parlours around such as Angsana Spa (2 minutes walk); N.A.I.L.S spa ( 2 minutes walk); Queens (3 minutes walk). The whole feeling of Marina walk is amazing. Lots and lots of restaurants downstairs. I can walk safely to Dubai Marina Mall without being stopped by any vehicles on the road. 25 minutes walk to the mall is a good exercise in winters. The Yacht view is something to die for. Show less
