One of the newer areas of the city, Dubai Marina is simply dazzling. This is a place that's not only home to some of Dubai's newest developments, but also an impressive combination of attractions, from sophisticated restaurants to fun-filled water parks.

Overview

Located close to the famous Palm Jumeirah - one of several artificial islands designed to give Dubai a larger shoreline - Dubai Marina is the epitome of beautiful, bustling, modern Dubai. It is home to high-end restaurants, tourist attractions and, of course, luxurious hotels. But it is perhaps best characterised by Dubai Marina Walk - a scenic walkway lined with restaurants and shops that enjoy the perfect vantage point looking out across the water.

Where to stay

Thanks to its combination of gorgeous views and varied attractions, Dubai Marina is, arguably, one of the most attractive places to stay in the city. Plus, it has the advantage of being home to some of the city's newest luxury hotels, meaning there is a truly excellent selection to choose from.

JA Ocean View Hotel

Located on the fabulous Jumeirah Beach, JA Ocean View Hotel pairs European art nouveau decor with state-of-the-art facilities. Look forward to a room complete with a balcony overlooking the Arabian Gulf, as well as easy beach access and an onsite spa. Seven restaurants and bars, a luxurious infinity pool and a kids' club help ensure this is a hotel with something to offer all ages.

The Ritz Carlton

Standing out from the skyscraper hotels Dubai is famous for is The Ritz Carlton which, at just 16 storeys high, instead occupies a much larger area on the ground, giving it a very roomy feel. Infused with art deco glamour, this wonderful hotel is home to the Balinese Spa and a private beach, while it offers a wide array of activities to choose from, including tennis, water sports and squash.

Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa

Perched on a private beach, this indulgent hotel promises views across Jumeirah Beach and a host of ways to relax. Its Roman-themed Caracalla Spa is ready to soothe away the stresses of guests, while its splendid water sports facilities and award-winning restaurants provide the perfect opportunities to unwind and create great memories at the same time.

Where to eat

Dubai Marina is a truly excellent place for food. Among the best locations to head to for a meal out is undoubtedly Dubai Marina Walk, which is lined with fabulous restaurants and shops, as well as offering charming views for a stroll.

BiCE Restaurant

BiCE can be found in the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort, where it serves up fantastic Italian cuisine in stylish surroundings. It's a particularly great place for brunch, where its relaxing ambience enhances the dining experience. Open daily for both lunch and dinner, it provides traditional dishes prepared perfectly.

Poco Loco Restaurant

This exciting Latin American restaurant specialises in Peruvian and Mexican dishes. Tacos, tostados and Patagonian toothfish are the kind of fare to expect here, served up courteous staff who are always happy to provide recommendations of dishes to try.

Thyme Restaurants

Located on the Dubai Marina Walk in the JA Oasis Beach Tower, Thyme serves flavoursome Mediterranean cuisine made using only freshest ingredients. Its lively decor and vibrant cuisine is complemented by the live cooking stations, that give diners the thrill of seeing their meals prepared before their eyes.

What to do and see

With its relaxed yet bustling ambience and abundance of restaurants, Dubai Marina is the perfect place to get into the holiday spirit. Plus, it is ideally positioned for exploring some of the city's most famous attractions. In the marina itself, these are some of the best things to do and see:

Dubai Marina Walk

This walkway is more than just a great place for a bite to eat; it is also a fabulous spot for a romantic afternoon or evening stroll enjoying the views and soaking up the atmosphere.

Water parks

This is also the location of some of the very best water parks in the Middle East. Aquaventure and Wild Wadi Water Park both offer a mix of adventurous slides and rides with places to relax and unwind - a combination that promises great fun for both children and adults.

Gravity Zone

Dubai's ultimate attraction for thrill seekers, the Gravity Zone is an urban bungee jump that lets daring holidaymakers plummet 90 metres down through this spectacular cityscape. Plus, it will soon feature a "catapult", which will jettison brave riders up 30 metres in the air in just a harness.

Conclusions

Imbued with the classic charms of a sophisticated marina but with Dubai's distinct brand of luxury, Dubai Marina is a wonderful place to dine in style and admire the views. Plus, its selection of new hotels and proximity to the city's most celebrated attractions make it one of the most appealing areas to stay in.
