The Palm Jumeirah Holidays

The renowned man-made Palm Jumeirah has become one of Dubai's most recognisable landmarks. Luxurious hotels and their amazing leisure attractions are the main draw but, even if you decide not to stay on The Palm, this iconic district is worth a visit for the fine dining restaurants, luxurious spas, beautiful beach clubs and unfettered views of the Gulf.

The Palm Jumeirah sits around a mile north of Dubai Marina and is reached via a causeway from the mainland, and is far and away the largest example of Dubai's desire to transform its unpromising natural environment. Shaped like a palm tree, with a central 'trunk' and a series of sixteen 'fronds', which is enclosed in a seven-mile long breakwater or 'crescent' lined with a string of huge resorts, villas, apartments, marinas, restaurants and retail outlets. A good way to see The Palm is from The Palm Jumeirah Monorail, whose driverless trains shuttle along an elevated track between Atlantis, The Palm and the Gateway station on the mainland, a trip which takes around ten minutes. Alternatively, take a wander along the six mile pedestrianised boardwalk which stretches across the outer crescent of The Palm and will eventually be lined with cafes, kiosks and food trucks.

At the far end of The Palm, is the vast pink-hued Atlantis, The Palm, a major landmark and focal point for the entire development. The resort's exceptional recreational facilities include Aquaventure Water Park, The Lost Chambers Aquarium, Sea Lion Point and Dolphin Bay, which are all open to non-residents (charges apply).

Travel information

The transfer time from Dubai airport to The Palm Jumeirah is approximately 45 minutes.

Best time to go

Dubai enjoys virtually guaranteed year-round sunshine. Between December to February temperatures average in the mid-20sºC, rising up into the 30s from March to April and again from October to November. While the scorching temperatures between May-September may be too much for some (usually in excess of 40ºC), it’s one of the few destinations when it’s cheaper to visit during our school summer holidays, whether travelling with children or not.

Tourism Dirham charge

A Tourism charge is payable locally at all hotels and apartments in Dubai and is levied per room per night as follows:-

  • AED 20.00 (approx. £4.25) per room per night for stays in 5* hotels and deluxe hotel apartments.
  • AED 15.00 (approx. £3.20) per room per night for stays in 4* hotels and superior hotel apartments.
  • AED 10.00 (approx. £2.10) per room per night for stays in 3* and 2* hotels and standard hotel apartments.

Ramadan

During Ramadan, it is forbidden to eat, drink or smoke in public places (including hotels and those offering all inclusive) between sunrise and sunset; and no live entertainment is permitted. Hotels usually provide a private area where non-Muslims can eat during the day. Alcoholic drinks are not served in hotels (including those offering all inclusive) on dry days and other days stipulated by the government. Alcohol is available in Dubai hotels after sunset. Please ask for more details at time of booking.
