Reasons to Stay at Jumeirah Al Qasr at Madinat Jumeirah Resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
May 31, 2016
I’ve had the chance to stay at the Jumeirah Al Qasr at Madinat Jumeirah Resort in Dubai, UAE, twice now, and I look forward to going back someday. The hotel is designed to look just like royal architecture, both inside and out – it truly is a palace fit for a king or queen. You’ll be treated like royalty as well, thanks to the complimentary meals at over 50 restaurants in Dubai, the private car service to and from the Mall of the Emirates, and the private beach.
This is true 5-star hotel in every sense of the term
From the rooms, outfitted with designer linens to the beautifully appointed spa and helpful resort staff, it doesn’t get any more luxurious. The “buggies” (also known as golf carts) and the abra (boats) make it easy to move from one part of the resort to another, and of course, you won’t have to drive or sail yourself; staff members are there ready. If you want to work out while on your trip, the fully equipped - and staffed – gym offers everything from standard equipment to numerous group classes, and you can even utilize one of the on-staff personal trainers.
The people of United Arab Emirates are known for their hospitality, and that is evident in the way that the resort is designed and staffed. Not only are the grounds of the hotel beautiful, but you receive possibly the best service out of anywhere in the world. Make sure to take advantage of the resort’s afternoon tea. This is an Arabian custom that is well worth enjoying.
The Views and Surroundings Are Stunning
Dubai might be synonymous with “desert” for those who haven’t been there, but don’t let your assumptions get the best of you. The resort has amazing views of the Burj al Arab (one of the best hotels in the world), the Palm Jumeirah (man-made island shaped like a palm!), beautiful gardens, rivers, and the waterfront. You’ll find the epitome of peace and relaxation while lounging on the long, white sandy beaches, and you’ll find it easy to take the traditional abra boats everywhere; they’re stunning in and of themselves.
Pierchic restaurant, not only is one of the best seafood restaurants I have been to, but you are sitting above the water and the view is breathtaking.
Happy Kids = Happy Parents
Any time my kids are happy, I am too. There is a very large pool on the resort property for kids to swim in, as well as easy access to the adjacent, kid-friendly water park. If your kids want to spend some time out of the water, take advantage of the very well air-conditioned indoor kids club, as well as the numerous children’s activities that take place all day long in and around the resort. Some examples of this include camel rides, indoor skiing at the Mall of the Emirates, and a world-renowned aquarium.
You’ll Have a Fun, Yet Relaxing, Time
The Jumeirah Al Qasr at Madinat Jumeirah caters to both solo travelers and families, making it a great place to go no matter whom you’re with. There are many different activities for adults and kids that you can take advantage of if you want to stay active. Of course, if you don’t, there are plenty of opportunities for leisure as well. It doesn’t get much better than this!
