Location & Directions

Dubai - Jumeirah Beach, United Arab Emirates

Madinat Jumeirah lies in a superb location along the prestigious Jumeirah beach strip, on the Arabian Coastline near Burj Al Arab.

When to go

The best time to visit the UAE is between October and November and then February and March, when temperatures hang around the mid-20s and the humidity is under control. While December and January are generally considered the best months to go, the weather over the last couple of ‘winters’ has been unpredictable with occasional cloud and rain.

The month of Ramadan means hotel rates are heavily discounted, but while outside the resort, Ramadan is strictly adhered to, within the resorts you will notice very little difference.

High summer (July and August) means heavy discounted hotels it’s a great option for a cheap getaway but it will be very very hot and very very humid!
