Situated roughly 40 minutes outside Dubai's city centre, Jebel Ali pairs luxury and classic Dubai attractions with a distinctly exclusive and relaxing atmosphere. This beachfront location is famous for its water sports, opulent hotels and golf, making it one of the finest choices if you're looking for the ultimate relaxing and luxurious holiday.

Overview

Jebel Ali is a stunning resort that's located next to Jebel Ali Freeport, which is one of the Middle East's most important ports. It occupies a spot that crosses not only this port, but also the Free Zone (a tax-exempt business district) and the world's largest man-made harbour.

More impressive still is that Jebel Ali enjoys a reputation for stand-out luxury in a destination where luxury is regarded as the status quo - something that is indicative of just how lavish the hotels and attractions here are.

Where to stay

World-class luxury is what holidaymakers can expect when visiting Jebel Ali. Its excellent selection of hotels is complemented by its spectacular seaside views, scenic beach and convenient location. From here, it's not only easy to reach the city centre, but also attractions such as Dubai's best shopping centres and the desert for thrilling activities, such as quad biking.

JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel

Set in 128 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds, this resort is one of the region's finest. Its grand, sprawling grounds include 800 metres of private beach, as well as a nine-hole golf course, riding stables and a private marina. Boasting an exceptional range of leisure facilities and activities, including scuba diving in the Arabian Gulf and horse riding, this hotel is guaranteed to impress.

JA Palm Tree Court

Perched on the beach, this family-friendly, suite-only resort is an incredible place for a relaxing break. All its stylishly decorated suites are sea-facing and situated in landscaped gardens, while its combination of tempting swimming pools, children's entertainment clubs and golfing facilities offer plenty to keep adults and children alike in holiday heaven.

Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel

This hotel sits in the heart of New Dubai, a location that gives it easy access to a fantastic array of shops while still being close to the beach. Plus, staying here provides guests with access to the Movenpick exclusive beach club, which is just a short shuttle ride away. Perfect for those who want to escape the beachfront hotel crowds while still enjoying Dubai's characteristic luxury, this establishment is also home to the wonderful Safar Spa and Diablo nightclub.

Where to eat

Many of Jebel Ali's top spots to eat can be found tucked away in its hotels, and range from bars boasting glorious sea and sunset views to fine dining establishments.

Mistral Restaurant

Located at the Movenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel, Mistral is a restaurant that caters for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It promises fine Arabian food, but with a slightly different focus for each course - breakfast, for example, is a lavish buffet, while lunch takes its inspiration from the dining tables of Arabia, North Africa and the Levant. At dinner, fresh seafood takes centre stage. This array of exemplary food is crowned by live cooking stations, which create a wonderful element of theatre.

Captain's Restaurant

Located on the Jebel Ali Beach Hotel's private stretch of sand, Captain's is the place to come for casual dining with a captivating view. It's particularly scenic at sunset, when the Arabian Gulf becomes bathed in an orange glow. Serving light lunches and snacks during the day, it's the ideal place to relax.

White Orchid Restaurant

Boasting beach and garden views and a fantastic fusion menu, White Orchid is a must for keen gastronomes. The kitchen here combines Chinese, Japanese and Thai flavours to create an unforgettable taste of the Far East. While casual attire is welcome, it is worth remembering that sportswear, swimwear and flipflops should be avoided.

What to do and see

The beauty of Jebel Ali lies in its location. Perched on the Arabian Gulf, its warm waters make it ideal for water sports. Situated outside the hubbub of central Dubai, it also offers a relaxing ambience, while still being close enough to make venturing into the centre easy. Not that doing so is necessary - in Jebel Ali itself you will find a great mix of activities on offer, not to mention some of the destination's finest malls irresistibly close by.

Water sports

One of the very best ways to spend time in Jebel Ali is to take advantage of the huge array of water sports on offer. This is a place where it's possible to go wakeboarding one day, kitesurfing the next, and kayaking the next. Plus, there are scuba diving companies here that cater for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned experts.

Golf

There's nothing quite like teeing off under the warmth of the Arabian sun. Pay a visit to the JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort to experience the championship-standard nine-hole par 36 course. Designed by Swiss architect Peter Harradine, this world-class course promises sea views and charming landscaping, not to mention presenting an enjoyable challenge for all levels of golfer. There is also a driving range, putting greens and, for those keen to learn, the Academy of Golf.

Go to the races

Famed for its "garden party" atmosphere, the Jebel Ali Racecourse has been welcoming eager spectators since 1990. Its expanded since then, and now has the capacity to seat up to 2,000 people. It presents a great opportunity to dress in your best and enjoy an afternoon of sport - typically, races take place every 30 minutes from 2.30pm throughout the afternoon.

Conclusions

For all those keen to experience the luxury of Dubai and have easy access to a private beach, world-class golf and high-end shopping, all while avoiding the busyness of central Dubai, Jebel Ali is the natural choice.
