Madinat Jumeirah the Arabian Resort - Dubai, is a luxurious 5 star resort in Dubai and is also the largest resort in the emirate, spreading across over 40 hectares of landscapes and gardens. It is designed to resemble a traditional Arabian town. The resort comprises three boutique hotels (Al Qasr, Mina A'Salam, and Al Naseem) and a courtyard of 29 summer houses called Dar Al Masyaf. The resort has over 40 restaurants and bars.
Developer Mirage Mille retained Creative Kingdom (US/Dubai) to create the concept for the resort.
Madinat Jumeirah encompasses three boutique hotels and one cluster of summerhouses; Al Qasr, Mina A'Salam, Al Naseem, and Dar Al Masyaf; Arabic summerhouses located around the resort grounds.
Mina A’ Salam or 'The Harbour of Peace' was the first of the boutique hotels to be completed, and features 292 rooms and suites.
Al Qasr, which literally translates to 'The Palace', comprises 294 rooms and suites, designed to reflect a sheikh’s summer residence.
Dar Al Masyaf consists of 29 stand-alone, two-storey residential retreats inspired by traditional Arabian summer houses. Each of the 29 'houses' features 9–11 rooms and suites which are extended across the resort grounds.
Al Naseem, which translates to 'The Breeze', the latest of the boutique hotels to be completed, comprises 430 rooms and suites. It is, however, the only hotel in Madinat Jumeirah without a connection to the other hotels via waterway.
5.4 km of waterways link the different areas of the resort, and water taxis (Abra (boat)) allow guests to travel along them to all parts of the resort.
The Madinat Jumeirah waterways are home to a turtle sanctuary which aims to house injured turtles prior to release back into the wild. The turtle pen is located at Mina a'Salam and is directly in between Al Muna and Zheng He's restaurants.
