A huge expanse of once empty Arabian Sea waters, is now adorned with one of mankind’s most grand architectural wonders – the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai.
Doing full justice to its name, the host of artificial islands is shaped like a stylized palm tree, and has been built on reclaimed land mass and a series of artificial archipelagos.
One of the first things that strike you when visiting the Palm Jumeirah is its size.
This giant archipelago is visible from space and the outer crescent is almost 7 miles long.Construction on this wonder took over a decade, and it is now one of Dubai’s most sought after tourist destinations, as well as housing, shopping, entertainment and investment.
Palm Jumeirah houses some of Dubai’s most luxurious hotels, restaurants and spas, including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the One&Only-The Palm and so many others. Packed with grandeur and every shade of glamour, the Palm experience is an unmatchable one. From dining options including the world famous Japanese cuisine restaurant Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge, the Japanese-Peruvian fusion at Aji and fresh seafood with an Arabic twist at Ibn AlBahr, as well as breathtakingly gorgeous resorts with views and service that are serene and inviting, the Palm Jumeirah is a traveler’s paradise.
Those who have a quest for adventure can choose to sky dive right above the island, and soak in the complete view of the Palm. Not just that, one can sail across the Palm Beach in a private yacht or speedboat, and admire the cityscape while being completely bewildered at the fact that it is all man-made. Well connected with tunnels, roads and public transport, the innumerable restaurants, hotels and tourist attractions on the Palm are easily accessible. One even has the option of hopping onto the Palm Monorail, which runs all the way to the Atlantis that is located at the helm.
One can also discover some of Dubai’s most iconic sights, from the comfort and thrill of a helicopter, through a City Circuit helicopter tour that departs from Atlantis The Palm.
A 25-minute flight, this unforgettable adventure gives you a bird’s eye view of the Palm and the nearby World Islands, along with the Burj Khalifa and Burj al Arab, the skyscrapers of Sheikh Zayed Road, and the heritage architecture of Dubai Creek and the old town.

In and around the Palm Dubai, there are various options for families and individuals to settle in, given the view, the accessibility and the too good to be true value for money offered by most of these properties. A major favorite among residents are the Palm Beach villas, which are spacious, stunning and sophisticated. Also on that list Bvlgari Residences – a name synonymous to a life of class and luxury. The options range from apartments to suites, and even villas! In fact, the Bvlgari Resort beacons you to live your best life, much like the spirit of the Palm Beach itself!
The Jumeirah is also only about 25 minutes away from both, the Dubai International Airport (DXB) as well as the Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC). What’s even more is that all of the amusement parks are hardly 30 minutes from the island which was developed by Nakheel, a real estate company, and is now owned by the government of Dubai. The master plan of this wonder was drawn up by Helman Hurley Charvat Peacock, an American architectural firm.
The Palm Jumeirah is like the ultimate blend between city life, and a laidback vacation spot. With elegant properties, each equipped with an array of services, and surreal views of the Arabian Gulf flanking the island on every curve, it is almost too good to be true, and an embodiment of the luxury and extravagance that Dubai stands for.
