Jumeirah

The Beverley Hills of the Middle East. No high-rise buildings here in the oldest residential district on Dubai’s coast.

Guide

The name means ‘Beautiful’ and this is the oldest residential district on Dubai’s coast. Before Dubai began its modernisation programme in the 1960s Jumeirah was the favourite place for western expatriates to live and as a consequence many of the houses here - there are no high rise buildings - are large and well spaced apart. In the land of glass and steel traditional houses command high prices, which is why Jumeirah is the most expensive place to live and has become known as the Beverley Hills of the Middle East.

Most of the property in Jumeirah is villas, some very large with their own pools and some located on small compounds with shared recreational facilities. Foreigners are not allowed to buy property in Jumeirah and rent is amongst the highest in Dubai. Nowadays there is a good mix of nationalities, including many Emiratis.

Besides the Mercato shopping mall there is a good variety of independent stores, boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants, as well as two post offices, several bank branches, two hospitals and a variety of medical and dental clinics.

There are plenty of nursery schools and many British and American system schools, some new and some well established.

With so many of these places accessible on foot there is a real neighbourhood feel to Jumeirah.


Transport & Access

Commute times by car*

From Jumeirah it takes roughly 11 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 19 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 17 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 22 minutes to The Walk JBR.*

Airport proximity

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 20 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 45 minutes' drive.*

Road access

Sheikh Zayed Road is the main arterial highway (E11) in Dubai and passes alongside Jumeirah at a discreet distance, so driving anywhere in the Emirate is easy.

Public transport

The metro runs alongside Sheikh Zayed Road so it's possible to reach the key districts by train from Noor Bank, Business Bay or Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall stations.

* Drive times are calculated by Google Maps and assume fastest route in typical traffic conditions.

Amenities

Jumeirah's 9km long beach is the best in Dubai, which, together with the district's prime location between the Old and New Dubais, puts it in the premier league of places to live.

Out to sea is the remarkable collection of man-made islands, The World, and along the coast is the famous sail-shaped Burj al-Arab hotel. Directly inland is the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and the biggest shopping mall on the planet.

Jumeirah Beach Park is one of two welcome green spaces for walks, picnics and games. The other, Safa Park in the adjacent district of Al Safa, has a boating lake and fairground rides.

The Mercato shopping mall is designed to resemble an Italian renaissance, er, shopping mall. Even if you don’t want to buy a Porsche or a diamond bracelet at least you can escape the heat in this airy, fairy retail palace, or even take in a movie at the cinema.

The elaborately decorated Jumeirah Mosque welcomes non-Muslims for guided tours as does the traditional Emirati-style Majlis Ghorfat Umm Al Sheif, once the summer residence of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, father of the present ruler of Dubai.
