On arrival at the JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort, located 40 minutes from Dubai International International Airport, we had a lot of pleasant surprises. The first is JA Palm Resort Three Resort.
Around the greens, the birds sing, on the well-groomed lawn, impressively colored peacocks, friendly to the guests, walk about. It is difficult to imagine that on the site of this paradise of green once was a bare earth, reminiscent of the desert Tabernas. Here and there, two- and three-tiered buildings with cozy balconies.
Each of them offers scenic views of the Arabian Gulf. The coastline stretching into the distance attracted us to explore the entire surrounding area with its zones for various leisure activities and lovely cafes and restaurants.
JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort offers luxury accommodation options. So, in addition to the comfortable rooms of the JA Palm Tree Hotel, executed in a unique design, not far from the bay there are beautiful cozy design rooms of the JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel. The hotel itself, like a big ship, rises majestically in front of the bay with moored yachts and offers its guests a rich assortment of leisure and dining options.
The territory of the resort is so huge that it still boasts the presence of a luxurious villa The Residence, located along the Gold Coast of Dubai. Its guests have at their disposal 14 luxury residences with a kitchen, a personal butler, a separate lounge with a pool and much more.
Regardless of the choice of accommodation, the whole family is waiting for a rich program. Here you can not only enjoy swimming in the pool and shopping at branded stores, but also ride a horse, do some shooting at the JA Shooting Club or go to the Watercooled Water Center, for example, to try your hand at sailing or padlboarding.
With indescribable enthusiasm, we threw several balls into the hole on the golf course. If you wish, you will be taught how to play golf, badminton or squash. If you dream of relaxation, then feel free to rely on local masters from the spa and beauty salon.
And kids can have fun and have a safe time in the play area. Specially designed rooms for them with toys, and for older children – a computer room with slot machines.
As lovers of tasty food, we immediately realized that we were in the right place. After all, the resort JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort boasts a large number of luxury restaurants and cafes with a menu for every taste. For example, on the beach there is a Captain’s Caribbean-style restaurant and bar offering snacks and hookah.
Those who like to eat seafood, enjoy the restaurant Divaz. And if you prefer Italian cuisine and home-cooked meals, then welcome to La Traviata restaurant.
For younger guests, all establishments have a children’s menu and an armchair for feeding.
Parents whose plans include the most active days of vacation with the whole family, we recommend visiting the pride of Dubai – a complex of several theme parks Dubai Parks and Resorts. The first zone is LEGOLAND, where you can make a lot of colorful frames for memory against the background of unique exhibits from Lego cubes.
For example, against the background of the world famous Burj Khalifa skyscraper. The original of this building is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for its unique height – 828 meters, which is three times higher than the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
It was from Burj Khalifa that the main character jumped in the film “Mission Impossible” Tom Cruise.
The second zone, MOTIONGAТE Dubai, is dedicated to Hollywood topics. Here, too, you can find many interesting attractions and shops dedicated to your favorite movie characters. The third zone, Bollywood Parks Dubai, will surprise not only Bollywood movie fans.
In this part of the park, we especially remember the 3D rides. Ideal for those who are not at risk to ride on extreme slides.
In Dubai there is also the world’s largest indoor theme park of attractions, which will delight both kids and their parents. It’s about IMG Worlds of Adventure, which brings together the best international and local interactive entertainment in the style of famous characters and superheroes, such as Spiderman, Hulk, etc.
Do not miss the opportunity to get acquainted with the rich Arab culture and stroll through the historical places of the city. Our attention was attracted by the Al-Fahidi Fortress and the art gallery, where there were many unusual accessories with hand-made drawings on oriental themes and not only.
And also – the market of spices and gold.
Special attention is given to the City Walk shopping district: shops, restaurants, fountains, children’s play areas and stunning views of the city’s skyscrapers. And the perfect conclusion to our trip was La Perle, directed by Franco Dragone, who became famous throughout the world for the shows of Cirque du Soleil. Falling waterfall on the stage – not the only surprise that awaited the audience.
But we will not reveal all the secrets, but we sincerely wish you to open them yourself in your own journey to Dubai.
