A destination guide for Palm Jumeirah

Luxury villas and vacation rentals in The Palm Jumeirah

If you live the luxe life, it’s time to book a Palm Jumeirah vacation rental. The faux archipelago can only be described as lavish. The islands’ tree shape sets it apart from any other destination in the world, while its many glitzy hotspots, posh spas, and pulsing nightclubs lend it a party-all-the-time atmosphere. If you’re here in search of some R&R, though, you’ll certainly find it—lay poolside and soak up the sunshine while revelling in the beauty of this gem overlooking the Dubai coastline.
Things to do

It’s better down where it’s wetter under the sea

Stop one on your tour of this magnificent island: The Lost Chambers Aquarium. The Atlantis-themed attraction allows visitors to feed marine life at select times, and features wide aquatic tunnels teeming with undersea life. Continuing with the marine theme, head to Dolphin Bay, a water park featuring a deep blue lagoon framed by feathery palm trees. Dive in and get up close and personal with the dolphins. Kid-friendly Aquaventure Waterpark, featuring zip lines and sharks, is ideal if you booked a Palm Jumeirah vacation rental with the family.


Perfection in paradise: shopping, spas, and beaches

Get your shop on at the Nakheel Mall, offering over 4 million square feet of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Set on 5 floors, it also has a rooftop patio with Arabian Gulf views. If you’re an explorer, book a guided boat tour and enjoy views of the water, the architecture, the beaches, and the islands. Pop into a club and catch a live musical performance. If you’re up against after hours, you may even encounter a nightlife festival. And luxe life is nothing without a visit to a posh spa. The hard part is deciding which one!


It’s feeling hot, hot, hot in Palm Jumeirah

If you love hot, you’ll get hot in Dubai. Summertime, in particular, is dry and humid, and highs often reach over 100 degrees. Even the evenings don’t dip much below 90 degrees. Winters are mild and pleasant, with temperatures hovering in the mid-70s. You might get some rain at any time of year, although it’s minimal and most of it falls in winter. No matter what you do, pack the sunscreen—even in more moderate spring months, the sun’s powerful rays beat down all day long.

Natural features

On Palm Jumeirah, it’s all about the palms, baby

The tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah is a manmade island set on the Jumeirah coast of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Sandy beaches abound on the island, many of which are shadowed by towering resorts and elegant properties. If you’re lucky, your posh Palm Jumeirah vacation rental will offer you expansive and panoramic Persian Gulf views. Nature here is all about the palm trees—think thick, feathery fronds that wave to and fro over plush beach sands and the shimmering gulf waters.
