Inspired by the traditional Arabian courtyard summer houses and with no more than 11 rooms in each house, they offer an element of privacy yet still have easy access to the superb facilities of Madinat Jumeirah. The Arabian Summer Houses are scattered around the resort and have the benefit of a private pool for every three or four units. The Gulf Summer Houses are located along the beach and offer excellent sea views together with easy access to the beach. Both options present the most luxurious accommodation within the Madinat complex.
Within Madinat Jumeirah there is a huge choice of facilities available including an excellent Kid’s Club, a wonderful spa (both located at Al Qasr), a reconstructed and air conditioned souk and a choice of over 40 restaurants, bars and cafes. All of this is spread out amongst stunning landscaped gardens and a 1 kilometer stretch of private beach. A quirky addition is the 3.7 kilometers of waterways with traditional boats to transfer guests from place to place.
