Umm Suqeim
Updated: 28th January, 2023

Umm Suqeim

Expatriates and Emiratis live side-by-side in this older, more established area. It's even peaceful once you get off the beaten track.
Umm Suqeim
Umm Suqeim is an area located within Jumeirah, Dubai.

Umm Suqeim is located in western Dubai on the coast between Jumeirah and Al Sufouh. The district is divided into three communities, Umm Suqeim 1, 2 and 3.

This is an older, more established area, quite beautiful in places and even peaceful once you get off the beaten track that is Jumeirah Beach Road. It is home to expatriates and Emiratis living side by side on well-maintained streets. The regular call to prayer is part of the Arabic ambiance and a daily reminder that you're living in the Middle East.

The properties in Umm Suqeim are almost all ‘free standing’ villas, in other words not in gated communities or compounds. They range in size from small one bedroom houses to larger five or six bedroom villas. Since there is no space for further development properties tend to be rented quickly in this popular beachside district.

The houses and villas on one side of the beach road are as close as you can get to the beach in Dubai, while on the other they’re as green as you can get in Dubai, with well established gardens and green parks.

Properties in Umm Suqeim may only be sold to GCC citizens, so renting is the only option for expats.

For those who live in Umm Suqeim the attraction seems to be the way of life. Schools and shops are within walking distance, as is Suqeim Public Park and the beach. And because the place is so centrally situated driving to other parts of the Emirate is a breeze.

The shops and supermarkets are good and as one resident remarked ‘what Aswaaq doesn't sell, Choithrams does.’ Most corner shops and restaurants will deliver to your house and when home cooking doesn’t take your fancy there are several 5-star hotels with alternatives on the menu.

Many people walk, jog and cycle around the Umm Suqeim neighbourhood and down to the beach. Alternatively, if you have money to burn the nearby Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach hotels have up market gym and beach club facilities where you can shed the weight from your wallets.

Burj Al Arab is nearby but you must have a room or restaurant reservation to get in, while Wild Wadi Water Park will let you in any time for AED 275.

The main medical clinic is the Medcare Medical Centre in nearby Jumeirah but there are also many smaller clinics and dentists. The nearest hospital providing emergency service is Medcare Hospital located 20 minutes drive away in Al Safa.
