Palm Jumeirah Area Guide

This is the biggest land reclamation project on earth, a giant archipelago designed in the shape of a palm tree whose fourteen fronds are fringed with beach-side houses and villas. The spinal ‘trunk’ has apartment buildings, shops, hotels, marinas, spas and its very own monorail.

To build the Palm some five million boulders were loaded onto giant barges and sunk to form an artificial island surrounded by an eleven kilometre breakwater rising two metres out of the sea.

No concrete, no steel, just rocks and sand were used to create this engineering masterpiece. It has been said that if the rocks had been used to build a two metre high wall, that wall could wrap around the world twice over.

It took just two years to create the island and surrounding Crescent breakwater, and another two years to build the four and half thousand houses and apartments, and the hotels and shops that populate it. On the ground you wouldn’t know that ten years ago none of this existed; it looks and feels like a natural island.

The twenty Shoreline Apartments buildings on the east side of the Trunk house two and a half thousand luxury apartments of varying sizes while at the end of the Trunk is the Village Centre with another thousand apartments. And then there are the villas and houses on the fronds themselves, an estimated two thousand and still counting, packed with miscellaneous celebs busy enjoying the lifestyle.

Palm Jumeirah Amenities

The main attraction is the clear blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. Whether it’s sailing, diving, swimming, working out, sunbathing, shopping, eating, or simply having fun, you’ll find it catered for here. You can splash about in the 42-acre water park or set sail from one of four marinas. You can take a dive and check out the diversity of fish, coral, sponges, oysters and other marine life that have made the rocky Crescent reef their home. If you’re not the fishy type you can explore the shipwrecks and a couple of downed fighter planes compliments of the tourist board.

And if getting wet is not your bag you’ve got a fitness club, shops, cafes and restaurants to help you while away your time.

The Crescent stretches for 11km and is home to over twenty hotel resorts including the landmark Atlantis situated at the ‘top’ of the Trunk.

In November 2016 a new Boardwalk opened along the length of the Crescent. Built over the rocks that form the island’s breakwater, the six-metre wide Boardwalk is more than double the width of the original Crescent path. It is accessible from 14 points along the existing sidewalk and has not only transformed Palm Jumeirah’s Crescent into a place for cycling, jogging or walking but also a ‘vibrant destination’ for shopping and dining, with around 20 food trucks stationed along its length to cater for the hungry.

Palm Jumeirah Travel Guide

All parts of the Palm are well served by roads, and the spinal highway connects to Sheik Zayed Road, the main north-south highway running through Dubai. Abu Dhabi is then about an hour’s drive and the airport about 50 minutes.

2017 will see the start of a scheme to provide proper pedestrian connections between residential buildings on the Palm's trunk to local shops and restaurants. Pedestrian bridges on the 1.5 kilometre Palm Promenade will link the area’s 30 apartment buildings with Al Ittihad Park, Palm West Beach and the Golden Mile-Galleria.

The aim is twofold; to create an urban community area that is connected to a growing number of retail, dining and entertainment facilities on The Palm, and to relieve the pressure on the main trunk road, which is becoming busier as more hotels, shops and restaurants open in the area.

The speed of traffic on the trunk is currently impeded by pedestrian crossings, lights and speed bumps. By introducing pedestrian bridges traffic will be able to flow more freely.

Public Transport Links to Palm Jumeirah

The Palm also has its own monorail running the length of the trunk. It connects with the new tram system serving Jumeirah Beach and Dubai Marina where it stops alongside the Dubai Metro. From there The Mall of the Emirates is a 15 minute ride, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa 30 minutes, and the airport 55 minutes. At some future date the monorail will connect directly to the Dubai Metro at Dubai Internet City station.

For those wishing to travel in style there is a water taxi service that will pick you up from the Palm and take you anywhere on Dubai’s waterways.

"Palm Jumeirah Signature Villa"

Reviewed

Positives:   The view, the cars, the beach, the sea, its sunny all the time, the cold wind.

Negatives:   Nothing.

It has been three years since I moved on the Palm. and I do not want to change location. The view is amazing, security is great. I have access to the beach and the sea. The people are nice. It is always sunny and there is always some cold wind which makes the heat of Dubai better to stay outside.

"Worst Building And Facilities Management Ever"

Reviewed

Positives:   The pool, finishing inside apartment.

Negatives:   See rewiew :).

Am an expat living in Dubai over 8 years, lived in downtown, Marina, DIFC previously and decided to try the Fairmont Palm. What a mistake it turned out to be! Caution to anyone considering moving here for the beach and gym access, agents are still advertising the property as inclusive of same, but what you will find out is that it has been taken away from the tenants due to a dispute with the facilities management company over whether or not it is included in owner's service charge. Beach and gym access was withdrawn to tenants in the middle of summer 2016 and has not been changed since. To access the beach and gym, there is a daily fee of AED 25 for tenants and their guests. Not nice when you moved here for that as one of its major features. The security and on site management team are just horrible. The number of procedures just to move out, move in, take a delivery of furniture, etc are endless. Paperwork and security deposits for just the smallest of things. They will make it difficult for any external service providers to come and do mantainence by attempting the restrict their access for the most petty reasons. All because they want to do the work through their In house building management team and boy do they know how to charge for the smallest of things! The noise and dust from neighbouring developments is getting worse and traffic is increasing considerably with the new mall being constructed. Once that opens, the time to get off the palm from the Fairmont to SZR will increase from the already 5-10 minutes, depending what time of day you leave. The only positives I could say about the development is the pool, and the quality of the finishings inside the apartment. A friend who moved out of here previously did warm us a year ago about the security and management's approach t tenants but we fobbed off the comment as if he was exaggerating. 12 months and we are about to move out we strongly regret not listening to that advice!

"Life On The Palm - On A Budget"

Reviewed

Positives:   Telling people you live on the Palm / view of the Marina.

Negatives:   Value for money / Smell / Ammenities.

First moved to Dubai Jan of 2015. All my colleagues went for the Marina etc. I decided to go all out and Live on the Palm - if I was going to spend Marina prices it needed to be on the most well known zip code in Dubai - Palm jumeriah. 1 year into living in Palm Views East and I must say it was worth it. I moved in and they had literally just completed construction and hand over. I was the first tenant to live in my apartment. Like any typical real estate agent desperate to let out a unit I was fooled into thinking there would be a gym at some point later in time... although access to the shoreline gym is available, I was told it wouldnt be free for very long. The pool is so odd. They built it over the parking.. I dont understand why. It's a meter deep and kinda pointless to swim in. The wood deck is nice and its cool to watch all the cars go by. Its something, not the best pool but I guess better than most. So what are the real highlights of living in palm views East? - The view of the Marina, Burj al Arab and the fronds is WELL worth the 75k 1 cheque I put forth. What are the biggest downfall? - The building feels like it was built as a services apartments quarters... It doesnt feel like shoreline equivalent. Sure it's nice.. it's just got a feeling like your living in a building built for the employees that run the marina etc.... - No covered parking is the pits to be honest... expecially when EVERYTHING else on the palm has covered parking... All in all it's not a bad place to live - for a year... just to say I've done it.. Studio's shouldnt cost you this much. So I'm off to a 1 bedroom in the middle of the desert to recoup some of the cost and save. Save so that in a couple year time I can afford to buy an apartment I can enjoy and rent out for others to enjoy as well.

"After 5 Years In Golden Mile"

Reviewed

Positives:   The space and design of the house, the direct access from garage.

Negatives:   Maintenance, management and concierge service and construction shaking and damaging the house.

Townhouse of Golden Mile has been my home for the last 5 years, i think we may be the oldest family to live here, a lot of neighbours moved in after us then out.. I just love the space and design of the house, specially that we have our own access to house straight from the garage, and the master room is massive and the kids room is really big, we made so many friends here, specially my 2 little girls, the access to the park behind has been great as we were living here before that park was even there, so when they built it, it was probably the only facility this building had to offer us.. In 2010 when we rented we were shown the pool which was filled and a half built gym and we were told that it should finish in 6 months... and this 6 months has been dragging ever since.. and for some reason this is the same answer you get when you ask the concierge.. maybe in 6 month.. don't believe any of it.. As for the concierge, maintenance and the building services in general, they have no idea how to manage a building, or how to fix any issues no matter how small or big.. any problem you will face will be super complicated to solve... Given that i live in a townhouse therefore my contacts are limited as much as possible from all.. I was happy, but the few times i had to schedule maintenance or had leaks or had any trouble in the house whether minor or big, the service i got is very poor compared to the premium that you pay for such a house... Every time you call them, it doesn't matter how small or big your issue is, they will end up sending you a quotation to do a major job.. and after spending a fortune you will realize that the issue has not been resolved, they will come back a few more times after that... Basically we were able to overcome most of the negative issues, like for facilities we had a membership in RIVA beach club, so access to the pool beach and what makes life in the palm special... For Supermarket, as there isn't any around we were able to manage with Geant online and calling the supermarket, or a 20 mins walk to mini mart in shorelines.. For the bad maintenance, you really need to follow up with them, or bring another company to deal with could be faster, we had a few other contacts... but for issues involving pipes or AC you need to deal with them and be prepared to follow up .. a lot! The biggest issue we faced, which is forcing us to move out is the construction... for the last year the amount of noise and the shaking , my whole house shakes! from 6 am to 7 pm every day was just too much! The house is effected badly from the shaking, i have huge cracks on my walls from the ceiling to the ground ... and not just normal paint cracks , there are gaps in the wall.. I freaked out and called the building services , they took pictures of the cracks, promised to have a meeting and discuss it and never came back to me... as expected.. You could even see some cracks on the walls outside the building... Then lately the electricity starting cutting off for a few seconds and back everyday in the same time in the morning from 3 to 6 times , i have complained to building services and I've been told its not a building problem, its a problem in my unit that i should bring in maintenance to sort it out.. not mentioning the lovely view of cranes.. The view used to be one of the beautiful things about this house and the reason why i stayed all these years plus the space of course, and its ruined now and almost impossible to live in... So we are looking to move out now, I will miss the space though :( but the shaking is just too much and is making the house fall apart..

Probably one of the most complete flat i have been living. View/facilities/proximity to shops/nightlife ... this building seems to tick all parameters .. except the parking issue, Only 1 parking for 1 bedroom, and very difficult to park the second one or even for guests. To get a second parking think adding 10k dhs a year .... The flat is fully furnished with a very modern twist. Excellent quality and design overall.

Positives:   Stunning view and 5 star amenities.

Negatives:   A tad bit disconnected.

It's a lovely apartment with quality finishing and great amenities like a swimming pool, clubhouse, gym etc. We can also avail of different offers at the neighbouring Rixos the Palm hotel though personally, I haven't used any of the offers till date. The downside is, it's a very quiet neighbourhood and not many options for schools around. On the plus side, we have direct access to the beach and the sea view outside our balcony is phenomenal.. So I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

"Superb Finished And Beautifully Laid Out, The Only Let Down Was The Paper-thin Walls And The Location Of The Pool"

Reviewed

Positives:   Finish; It is on the Palm; Pool & beach facilities; Parking; Spacious.

Negatives:   Very thin walls; Location of the Beach & pool; Pricey.

The shoreline buildings run up and down the right side of the Palm Jumeirah, but only the back side of buildings 1-10 have views along the coast line. The apartment on the backside of building 18 where resided for two year backs on the the rather lovely dry river bed with lots of plants and a running track, but also the back of the Golden Mile apartments and the Palm Monorail. Our apartment was in the column of xx05 apartments (I forget which 'type' this is) and was beautifully laid out with a main entrance hall leading the large kitchen and substantial living room. On either side were the two bedrooms and on-suite bathrooms. The main bedroom was large and square, and even had a walk-in dressing area. The maids/storage room was big enough for all our storage needs, including camping equipment and bikes. The building and apartment are both beautifully finished with proper wood skirting boards, nice tiles, nice fittings in all the room, even quality plugs and plenty of them. Parking was also plentiful, with one access card and space per apartment - my wife had a car so we had to pay 500 AED for an extra card. However we didn't bother renting out a second space as parking was plentiful - if you don't park in somebody elses allocated space, the security guards are willing to turn a blind eye. Living in the shoreline buildings gives you and your family access to the beach club, pool and gym but these are not located in the building - they are across a busy road in buildings 1-10 with poor crossing facilities over the road. Consider this if you have kids who want to use the pool often; you'll need to accompany them every time as the crossing over the road was poorly designed and cars shoot through the red lights all the time - they are an accident waiting to happen. The price of the apartment reflects the high standard of finish and facilities, but the main issue we had was that the apartment suffered from a lot of noise from all sides due to poor underlying build quality I suspect. On one side we had a family, and we were woken up every weekend at 8am by their kids - even though the kids were not being particularly noisy we could hear them talking and running around. Worst of all the people above used to stay up late every night and we could hear them walking around and playing musical instruments. Overall this is a wonderful apartment with great finish and superb location on the palm, however the amount of noise we could hear from the neighbours and the location of the pool and beach facilities across a busy road means this building is difficult to recommend.

"North Residence The Fairmont"

Positives:   The beach, the views, the Fairmont hotel, West 14th next door….

Negatives:   The noise of the road.

I love living on the Palm I have a beautiful, spacious apartment with fantastic facilities I live on the road side which is quite noisy, they are building the new Mall Nakeel, and the traffic has started to pick up, which can also be very noisy at night. The beach view apartments facing JBR would be perfect! To be able to walk to the restaurants, bars, beach and gym is a huge plus. The pool area is amazing. The reception, security, pool staff and maintenance are fantastic. The only downsize would be the lack of storage space in the apartments and they only have one plug socket in the kitchen, and they could do with a small shop for when you run out of milk. Also something which has been a real nuisance this year is that there has been jelly fish throughout the year in the sea, so a lot of people have been stung , including myself. All in all though you drive onto the Palm and feel as if you are on holiday and everything that you need is here so some weekends I don't even leave….

"Apartment With A Beautiful Park View"

Positives:   Layout and Quality.

Negatives:   Pool & beach ( but not an issue ).

I used to live in the Dubai Marina with panoramic view to both the Marina and to the Palm, but the noise level, coupled with the layout and lack of storage space and wardrobes, not to mention the traffic was a killer. I have lived here for over a year and it's peace and quiet, it feels like a home, the layout count' be better and the standard is really high. No I don't have beach access, but I did not have that in the marina either and living on Palm I have plenty of developments I can choose from, however they do offer us a beach assess in the shoreline for a fraction of the price should I want to, but I have membership else where. The unit is spacious, with a maids room, lots of room for clothing in all rooms and storage, which is a main for me as I don't like anything in my face, and the quality is great. At night I spend most of the time on the very spacioius balcony which is almost like an extra room but outside all I can hear at night is the sound from the water fountain from the park and critters "singing" :).

Positives:   Pool & quietness. Good landlord.

Negatives:   Guest parking and security (the current ones).

Tiara is actually a OK place to live. Quiet and good facilities. The only thing that makes it only OK and not very good is the parking situation. One car park for my two bed is one to little. And no possibility to hire a second one. Even worse, catastrophically worse, is parking for guest. Not only they are VERY few, they are also extremely expensive if you use it more than a couple of hours. When on top of this, some of the security guys overviewing parking are really grumpy and straight up very rude and bad-mannered towards my guest, it simply becomes not acceptable. When the attached hotel now is opening the pressure on parking and facilities will be over the top. Unfortunately as it could have been a heaven at Tiara! As it stand now, it time to leave the place.

Positives:   Spacious.

Negatives:   Noise and lack of facilities.

The building and surrounds seem very nice at a first glance. Once you live in the apartment you realize there is no sound proofing and that you hear everything from your neighbours upstairs, downstairs and even from next door (in your bedroom). When people talk in the passage, you can hear every single word in your apartment. Pool, gym and facilities are promised but not delivered due to "a legal dispute with the contractor". There is absolutely no consideration for the owners and/or tenants in this development. There isn't even proper access to the park/walking track as it has never been opened in 5 years since the development has been completed. In contrast there are plenty rules and regulations to follow even pertaining to the non existent pool, gym & facilities.

I have lived at Oceana for over 4 years now, we were some of the first people to move in, back then it was heaven on earth, lovely mix of neighbors, no parking issues, no lack of sunbeds, no extra charges for anything they can think of, it was just perfect! However over the years there have been more and more rules introduced, the prices have increased so much plus they have introduced so many extra charges, like paying to keep your kayak on the beach, plus the residences that lived there have really changed. Nothing beats the facilities and I will be sad to move when we do but I feel Oceana has had it's good days and it will just get worse and worse. It also doesn't help that there are no paths outside and there are no shops on our side of the palm so you have to drive to the other side. It would be nice if they finished the front and made it more attractive. One other amazing thing is West 14th, we love it there and will keep coming back for as long as we live in Dubai.

"Oceana Residences Palm Jumeirah"

Reviewed

Positives:   The view, the gardens, nice pool.

Negatives:   High rents, poor apartment build quality, non-residents access.

Together with its sister building, Tiara Residences, Oceana was perhaps once one of the most desirable places to live in Dubai. Certainly the high rents still suggest that the owners still believe this too. Sadly, time has done this modern V-shaped development no favors as the communal areas of the buildings are looking very tired and residents regularly complain of exploding waters tanks and recurring bad smells due to shoddy plumbing. There is also an on-going feud between the owners/tenants and the management company as the pool, lazy river, beach and facilities are used every day by holiday makers staying at Movenpick hotels in Dubai. Oceana is basically Movenpick's beach club and every day the holiday makers are bused in to descend on the sun beds and avail of the poolside bar and the West 14th restaurant's snacks. Unfortunately this means the whole atmosphere of Oceana feels more akin to a hotel resort that's run strictly 'for profit' rather than a true luxury residential community.

Positives:   There is continuous activity doesn.

Negatives:   No proper grocery shopping.

Having not exactly five starred all the options above, I still believe Palm Jumeirah is a gem. I would be much happier of course if there was some serious shopping involved. The place is full of spas and restaurants but one cannot do proper grocery shopping. However I hear that should be coming to the island very soon so I cannot be more excited. Another issue I see is that people seem to still enjoy speeding up and down the trunk... especially cab drivers, often not stopping at zebra crossing. On a positive note, like most of Dubai, this place is as neat as it can possible be. I am convinced that once the construction, whenever that will be, is over, it will truly be a wonder to live in.

Our apartment has the view of Burj Al Arab & Burj Khalifa. It's the best view ever! And it's priceless to wake up to this view every morning! I believe it's the best place to raise children because it's secure; if you are not a resident you cannot enter the beach and the garden.

"Golden Mile 2 Bedroom"

Reviewed

Positives:   Finishing and the size of teh apartment.

Negatives:   No pool, no gym.

I’m quite happy with the apartment we are living in. The rooms are very spacious, the finishing is super nice, I never had any problems with my neighbors, so over all it is a good place to live. Now we have a big park just in behind of us where we can go for a run or just to walk. There is absolutely no traffic, I can be on the Sheik Zayed Road in just 2 minutes from the parking, which is really great compare to the Marina or to JLT. The only negative thing I can mention is the lack of service that we have. I think we among the very few buildings in Dubai, (in the Marina/JLT/Palm area), without any gym or pool and for the money we pay it would be a bare minimum. The management is keep on saying that next year it will come next year, but so far nothing….. Same thing with the retailer shops, we have been promised that there will be a Waitrose just under us but nothing has been done till now. Also the concierge service is a bit useless. We are paying a lot for it and if we ask them to call us a handy man they refuse to do it and only give us a number.

"Golden Mile, Building 2"

Reviewed

Positives:   Peaceful, quiet, park downstairs.

Negatives:   Parking, no gym or swimming pool.

We have moved here after living 2 years in JBR in a 1 BR apartment. The major motivation was that the prices have dropped at that time and continuous traffic jams, noise + dust of the construction in JBR made area much less attractive then it was in 2007. At the time we looked at the market, GM was brand new and offered really high standard in terms of finishing, plenty of living space and an environment without major construction work. Also the buildings have very good accessibility from the both directions of Sheikh Zayed Road and now also a park with running track with a nice view to Atlantis is available. In general the neighborhood is one of the best in Dubai and you can enjoy some of the five star elements of Dubai (Atlantis, Palm Marine for boats, top hotels with plenty of fine dining options). Finally we moved to a 2 BR apartment on the 6th floor of the building overlooking the GM park which we found better than the other side where you have the view the Dubai Marina skyline, but also a 2 X 4 lane road continuously busy with the traffic leaving the Palm. Since we moved in there were no major issues with apartment beside 2 leaking taps and regular annual AC maintenance. Nevertheless, i tried to list some of the downsides which we experienced throughout the last 5 years and which can be really annoying: 1. No gym or swimming pool. Prices of beach clubs in the area are ridiculously expensive (around 20-40k per year) 2. Access to the Golden Mile park is not possible directly from the building due to a fence left from time of the construction. 3. The building is still not registered as an operating facility (last two buildings are not yet commissioned), so to obtain RERA and other certificates related to the residency are very difficult. 4. The concierge service is just for show, none of the services listed in the booklet is actually working. 5. Parking is limited with very strict access policy. For instance visitors parking is only for 3 hrs and after fine is AED 500. 6. Building do not spend much money on maintenance. For 2 years they are not able to fix a panel to be able call the elevator from the visitors parking level. 7. No decent groceries in the neighborhood, except some small and overpriced small shops in the Shoreline buildings which is difficult to access due to the fence on the east side of the building.

"View, Orientation & Hotel Opening Warning"

Reviewed

Positives:   Breathtaking view! Huge living room. Large private beach & large heated infinity pool. Excellent 5* facilities!

Negatives:   Bit pricey.

As for the orientation / view of Tiara North-East wing: - the side is facing to the mainland, beach & pool: is sunny in the mornings until 1-2 pm. It is a very bright, happy side. One bedroom flats are here. - the other side (facing to the East Marina Yacht Port and the palm fronds) is more quiet, but mostly shady both during mornings & afternoons. They might be a bit dark but may carry advantages during the hot season. Although there are a few bright flats on this side as well (in the last 2 buildings). Sunset is amazing from this side! Mainly 2 bedrooms are here. (3 bedrooms, penthouses are facing to both sides p.s. Currently the hotel opening is postponed again, but check the opening time & its rules about using the same facilities / and their beach access!

"Fairmont Residence On The Palm - Awesome!"

Reviewed

Positives:   Views and Facilities, you might never have to leave the building!

Negatives:   The noise outside, but thats what you get when living in the centre of it all.

The views from the Fairmont South Residence are great from the higher floors. Burj al Arab one side, Marina the other. We have stayed here with both views and it is gorgeous. Some of the apartments do not have such great views if they are facing the Golden Mile closer to North Residence. As part of the Fairmont Hotel complex, the beach is really great, and the pools are also good. It is never busy, sometimes on Fridays, but you can always get a lounger. Beach and pool access does cost membership as part of the community fees. Our landlord pay for ours. You can walk to the bars in the Fairmont, as well as Shoreline bars and restaurants. The new Palm walking and jogging track is good for exercise. The apartment is very large for a one bedroom. The open plan kitchen overlooks the lounge area and is very usable, unlike some kitchens in apartments that have very little storage. The guest toilet is a good touch when you have visitors. The bedroom is huge, you could easily get two beds in it if necessary. A great walk in closet also. The bathroom is big, separate shower and bath, marble surfaces. The tiling could be better, but that is the same in just about every place we have stayed in Dubai. There is a nice covered terrace outside. Ours overlooks the Burj Al Arab. The downside to this is that the traffic noise outside is bad, especially 4am on Saturday mornings when the Lambos and Ferraris are coming back from Atlantis! We are used to it now, and it doesn't really bother us when sleeping. If you are a light sleeper, or if the windows in your apartment don't fit properly then it will be loud. Rents are a bit higher here but worth it in my view.

"Living In Unfurnished Shoreline Apartments TYPE F"

Reviewed

Positives:   GYM, POOL and BEACH ACCESS.

Negatives:   Construction site view.

MOVING DAY. Moving IN or OUT is NOT allowed on a Friday. So plan your move and coordinate with your movers accordingly. The movers have to get passes from another place before they can start unloading your furniture from the truck. They need a copy of the company's trade licence and each and every mover's labour card or passport. VIEW. Our 5th floor F-type apartment faces the west side of the trunk so our view is the Palm MONORAIL, The Golden Mile building, a little bit of sea view in between and a huge construction area, which I believe is going to be a mall. Good thing the windows shut out most of the noise from the monorail and the construction. From the ground floor, the west side of the building features a park and a 2.7 km running track which is shared by other buildings. Residents can also walk the dogs here provided the dogs do not go to the playground and the running track. SETTLING IN. The layout of our apartment is the larger among the different 2 bedroom types. And the building we are in accepts dogs so our landlord had no problem with us having 2 dogs. Our apartment has a small maid's room, but other residents use that as storage room or an extra guest room since it has it's own small private shower and toilet. The living and dining areas are big enough for a couple with 2 dogs or perhaps 1 child. We prefer dogs. Our main balcony is the largest among the 2-bedroom apartments in the building and serves as a cozy place to unwind after a long day at work. The master's bedroom has another balcony. The kitchen has ample storage space and you can fit a washing machine and a dishwasher. The master's bedroom has a large en suite with a shower and a bath. I like our separate wash basins so my husband and I do not compete for the sink every day. The second bedroom fits a queen or king sized bed and a small desk but that's about it. Though it has a separate bathroom. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes but for some reason they were still not big enough to fit my stuff alone. THE NEIGHBORHOOD. I can hear children running upstairs and my next door neighbor having a conversation on his phone. One night I was watching TV and I heard a pounding on the wall, assuming my neighbors can hear my TV show. Across the street is my favorite place to go. There are restaurants and bars, cafes, the gym and swimming pool and the beach! As a resident, I get access to the gym, pool and beach however family and friends have to pay 80DHS for the whole day. Towels are not provided but white plastic sun loungers are. It is a first come first serve kind of thing. But there is an option to rent another sun lounger for 30DHS with cushion and everything. One of the main reasons why we chose to live here despite the high rent is the gym, pool and beach access. It's just a walk away. Be careful when crossing the street though, there are still some idiots who will drive you over even when the lights turn red. Overall I feel like I'm on a permanent holiday.

"Shoreline Apartments"

Reviewed

Positives:   The ambience, exclusivity and building facilities.

Negatives:   Public transportation and entertainment on the Palm are nonexistent. Also, there is too much construction in these areas, blocking off very nice views.

Al Haseer is known as one of the best Shoreline buildings. It has excellent club facilities, a stellar gym, a spa and salon, a dry cleaning facility and a 24 hour security and concierge. It's almost like living in a hotel but you have loads of privacy and the apartments are beautiful, modern and well finished. It has been a pleasure living here but don't expect the neighbors to be really friendly. The beach is great as Al Haseer and Nabat are the only buildings that boast a stretch of sun loungers. Sophie's Cafe and Riva Restaurant are good places to eat but the real gem is Barca which is just three buildings down (a nice walk along the beach). The pool is regularly cleaned and there is a lovely track that most Shoreline residents use that spans about 3600 meters. The rooms are lovely and spacious in the apartments with a large kitchen area and really nice balcony views of either the road or the sea, although even with a road view, you catch wonderful glimpses of the Dubai Marina.

"Amazing Sea View"

Reviewed

Positives:   The laid back lifestyle on the Palm.

I live in one of the first buildings of Shoreline apartments on the right hand side. I have amazing sea view with Burj Al Arab in the center. The layout of the flat was a bit strange at first, but as I use the second bedroom just for my guests, it works fine for me. Finishing is OK, but I've definitely seen better. Bidi Bondi is just under the building which is very convenient if you fancy a bite or some drinks, but their outside terrace can be a bit noisy sometimes.

"Life On The Palm"

Reviewed

Positives:   The beach.

Negatives:   Security, and the complete ridiculousness of beach usage by your personal guests.

The construction quality of the Shoreline Apartments is horrible. I was constantly having leaks, and no one from the building management would EVER come to repair. I had to find my own service people, as I had a totally absentee landlord. It got scary at times. Once, an apt above me sprung a leak, and it just started pouring in my closet. It was midnight- and I was on my own to sort it out. My downstairs neighbors renovated their apartment TWICE in two years - they had three men, picking up tile for over 2 months- day in, and day out. 7am-6pm daily. It sounded like they were in my own bedroom, hammering. They had a permit, so there was nothing I could do. I am a stay at home wife, so all day- every day, for TWO MONTHS- hammering. It was horrible. NO RECOURSE. NOTHING. When my hubby returned from long haul flights- forget catching up on sleep during the day- this place as NO common sense in regards to this. And they did this TWICE in two years. It was horrible. There are often domestic fighting with a couple down the hall. I have called the police on them, as I was worried for the wife. I am NOT a busy body, but it was horrible. They had no shame. When I left the building to move to my new home, my sweet door man- who I had become friendly with, said "Madam, I am happy for your family, that you are moving out of this building. It is unsafe for you to live on the 7th floor, I am scared the building will crumble and hurt your family", "There are so many maintenance issues with this building, you don't even understand". We also had an obvious gas leak in the garage basement, and when I reported it, they said- there IS no gas leak. As a girl from Texas, I KNOW a gas leak when I smell one. I took my family to a hotel that night, as I was truly scared the building was going to explode. I called the cops, and explained the situation, and they took the threat more seriously- low and behold- there WAS a gas leak (my interior of my car-even smelled of natural gas for three days, until it aired out completely). I feel that the Shoreline Apartments have too many construction issues to house my family. The SECURITY to keep out burglars and such is OVERKILL. My maid had to have a pass to get upstairs. If you want to take your child to the beach park, and bring a friend home from school, you MUST pay 50 AED for the guest. There is NO common sense as far as the beach is concerned. When I was moving out, I went to retrieve my kayak, which I paid to store on the beach. Since my rental had been extended one month, I did not have a current pass, and they were trying to make me pay 50 AED to get onto the beach, and 50 AED for each of my moving men- to go retrieve the kayak. So, don't move to the Palm thinking you can entertain, and have friends over to enjoy the pool or beach with you, as you will have to pay for ANY guest, even an infant. It gets expensive after awhile, and one of the main reasons we moved. It was the big draw, AND the biggest flaw to life on the palm.

Reviewed

Positives:   Accessability.

Negatives:   Construction around.

Living in Dubai is an experience that is hard to explain. As an expat it is hard to adjust to life here. However living here for the past 10 years has allowed me to truly appreciate Dubai and all it provides. I have lived in Huge villas (to my standard they were huge) and i loved it. I lived in Jumeirah, Safa, and Barsha in Villas that were amazing. Now im living on the Palm in the Shoreline Apartments after having a year back in South Africa and i have to say, as an apartment it is amazing in my opinion. it is about the size of my house in South Africa but with a room less. I truly love it. It is easy to get transport, it is easy to walk around it. Although I've only been here on the palm for a month, i am loving it.

Shoreline Apartments directly located at the beach on Palm Jumeirah (only buildings 1-10). Great view, huge rooms, big and beautiful balcony, direct and private access to the beach, gardens and pools. Kind and professional security, nice neighbours. One or two basement parkings depending on your flat, some parking spaces for visitors. No noise and always fresh air from the sea. Only superlatives and no disadvantages... that's the truth.

Positives:   Beautiful and safe environment for kids.

Negatives:   Limited choice of shops and restaurants nearby.

Our 3 bedroom apartment in Shoreline apartments is perfect for families with small children. The layout is good, master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom. The two other bedrooms are smaller and without en-suite bathrooms, so it might become a problem with teenage children. Guest parking can be tricky on the Palm, and Shoreline 14 has a big advantage as it is right next to a large public parking area. Downside is, as it is on the left side of the Palm, we have to cross the street to access the swimming pool and beach area.
