Heart of the so-called Uptown Dubai, Dubai Marina is home to over 120,000 residents, with a large selection of upscale apartment blocks.
Built around the manmade Dubai Marina, with shops and restaurants lining the walk, this is the ideal location for young professionals or families looking for apartment-style living. With everything within walking distance, residents of Dubai Marina never have to leave, with Dubai Marina Mall, Dubai Walk and Jumeirah Beach Residence providing residents with all their shopping and eating needs.
Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) located along the beach opposite Dubai Marina is another popular choice for living for young professionals or small families. The buildings are based around manicured gardens, shops and kids’ play areas, and are extremely spacious.
With most buildings either having panoramic marina or sea views, it is hard to find a tower in Dubai Marina that isn’t desirable, with some of the most stylish properties being located in the area. Mostly populated by Western expats, the ambience is young, active and vibrant, bringing together a mix of residential, commercial and hospitality elements. There is a large amount of five-star hotels located in Dubai Marina and JBR, including The Address Dubai Marina, Grosvenor House, Hilton JBR, Sofitel JBR and InterContinental Dubai Marina to name but a few.
The beach of JBR can be easily reached by foot from any area of Dubai Marina and has a long stretch of running track alongside it. Other residents choose to keep fit by walking or jogging round the 7km long Dubai Marina, stopping for a fresh juice or bite to eat along the way.
