Jumeirah Beach: Dubai’s Best Resort Location
With the most convenient location of any beachfront hotel in Dubai, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is the ideal holiday destination – right on the sand, yet close to the city’s famous shopping and attractions.
Dubai’s Most Prestigious Neighbourhood
Just 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is set in the prestigious coastal residential area of Jumeirah. Often called the Beverly Hills of the Middle East, this highly desirable neighbourhood features large and well-established private villas set within private courtyards and dotted with greenery.
The area is administratively divided into three areas, named Jumeirah 1, 2 and 3. Four Seasons is located within Jumeirah 2.
This section of Jumeirah 2 offers a natural beachfront – rare in Dubai – that’s ideal for sun worshippers and for swimmers dipping into the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf.
Close to Shopping
With a location at the northern end of Jumeirah Beach, Four Seasons is the closest beachfront resort to Downtown Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the 1,200-store Dubai Mall, also home to attractions such as the Dubai Fountain, the Dubai Aquarium and the famous indoor skating rink. It’s a lively area that features other popular shopping centres and restaurants.
From Four Seasons, it’s only about 15 minutes to the heart of the downtown action – compared to other Dubai resort areas, which can be up to 45 minutes away.
But you don’t have to travel far to find interesting shopping. The main streets of Jumeirah are lined with interesting restaurants and boutiques. Street Art is a colourful gallery for lovers of graffiti, street art and pop art. Bambah is known for vintage fashion and accessories. D.Tales specialises in Scandinavian-inspired interior design, while Comptoir 102 is a concept store for interior design, art, fashion and jewellery, also including a café.
Close to Local Culture
Historically, the Emirati people living in the Jumeirah area were fishermen and pearl divers. You can get a taste of this world in the Fishing Harbour – a 15-minute walk from Four Seasons – a new development that aims to bring back Dubai’s ancient trade and cultural roots. Stroll the jetty and look at the boats, then choose from about five restaurants and cafés. You might even want to set sail!
The neighbourhood is also home to the Jumeirah Mosque, the only mosque in Dubai that is open to the public and dedicated to receiving non-Muslim guests. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about Emirati culture and religion in a relaxed, casual and open atmosphere.
