Where to Stay in Dubai?
Dubai is a big city that I really love to travel to. Dubai has everything and more than that and for every time I come here I like to try out new areas to stay at. In this blog post I will share where I recommend staying in Dubai and what I like best and there are three areas. It is the palm, Dubai downtown and Dubai Marina / JBR.
Here I explain where I think it is best to stay in Dubai if you want:
Hang on the beach and take it easy
If you are looking to just hang out on the beach, relax and take it easy with your respective or family I would recommend staying on the palm. Here you have fantastic chalky white sandy beach, large hotel complexes and nice views. From here it takes about 30-40 minutes by taxi into Dubai downtown but taxis are very cheap in Dubai!
Hotel recommendations on the palm:
- One&Only the palm Dubai
- Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai
- W Dubai the palm
- Sofitel Dubai the Palm
If you are looking for party, beach clubs, shopping and pool hangout
If you are going with some friends to Dubai and want to party or hang out at beach clubs, or are looking for shopping and more lively atmosphere, I would recommend staying in Dubai downtown for the most central location to beach clubs, shopping malls, sightseeing and nightclubs. Most often, party brunches are at the hotels located downtown. If you are just looking for a pool hangout but at the same time a little lively holiday it is downtown I would recommend. If you stay in the middle of the downtown on the other hand, there will be no beaches.
Hotel Recommendations Downtown Dubai:
- The Address Residence Sky View hotel
- The Palace Downtown Dubai
- Sofitel Dubai Downtown
Looking for a mix between these two
If you want both beach, pool hang out, calm and nice but at the same time a little lively in the evenings or close to shopping and attractions in Dubai I would recommend staying in Dubai Marina / JBR. However, the beach is not as nice as out on the palm but it is still a large and mile long beach to swim from. Here you also have camels walking on the beach and many water sports can be done from here for those who are restless. In the evenings, you will find lots of restaurants that are located around here in the marina. It is like a private area in Dubai to hang out in.
Hotel Recommendations Dubai Marina / JBR:
- Hotel JA Ocena View
- Ritz Carlton hotel
- Hotel Rixos premium Dubai JBR
- Hotel Amwaj Rotana JBR
