Companies Associated with Ibn Battuta Mall
  • Ibn Battuta Mall is a mixed-use building in Ibn Battuta, Jebel Ali District, Dubai.
  • The project was completed by 2008.
  • The project was developed by Nakheel PJSC.
  • From Ibn Battuta Mall it takes roughly 21 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 13 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 19 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 14 minutes to The Walk JBR.
  • Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 30 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 31 minutes' drive. All durations are calculated by Google Maps and assume the fastest route in typical traffic conditions.
  • Ibn Battuta Mall is the world’s largest themed shopping mall and consists of six stylised courts. Their design is inspired by the different regions through which the 14th-century Moroccan Berber explorer Ibn Battuta travelled: Egypt, India, China, Andalusia, Persia and Tunisia.

  • Here you will find a magnificent hand painted dome in the Persia Court, pyramids in the Egypt Court , a striking lion fountain in Andalusia Court, a huge Chinese junk in China Court, and in India Court a life-sized reproduction of the elephant water clock devised by the 12th century Mesopotamian engineer, al-Jazari.

  • There are 335 shops with anchor stores Geant in Tunisia Court, Debenhams, Sharaf DG in China Court, Decathlon and Marks & Spencer.

  • There are also 50 restaurants, a 21-screen Novo Cinema including an IMAX theatre, a Switch Bowling alley in India Court, a children’s entertainment centre, and a gymnasium.

  • If you cannot bear to leave the place you can stay in one of the 5-star Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel’s 396 rooms and suites.

  • In 2016 a 300,000sq ft extension opened adding 60 more stores, but that’s small fry compared to the massive expansion planned for the future, the highlight of which is a 300,000 sq. ft. central courtyard with lush green landscaping under a retractable glass roof.

  • The 4.7 million sq ft expansion will include a new cinema complex, a two-storey link connecting the mall to Ibn Battuta metro station, a second hotel and a 24-hour food court.

  • In all the expansion will create an 18 million sq ft, mixed-use retail, entertainment, hospitality, office and residential development, doubling the size of the mall and including six office towers, 2,700 new hotel keys, 1,500 residential units, and parking for 18,000 cars.

  • The expansion will also connect all of the elements to Dubai’s new metro.

  • In the third phase, a 500,000 sq ft domed entertainment area will include a large children’s entertainment area as well as nightclubs, live performance theatres, and additional dining areas around a central lagoon and rainforests. A rollercoaster will cross the domed area.

  • Ibn Battuta Mall is located at The Gardens between interchanges 5 and 6 on Sheikh Zayed Road and at Ibn Battuta metro station on the Red Line.
