Full accommodation information

Resembling an ancient Arabian citadel, the extensive, award-winning resort of Madinat Jumeirah is truly enchanting and houses three very different properties.

Al Qasr, which means The Palace in Arabic, is the centrepiece of the resort. Designed to reflect a Sheikh's summer residence, it is a truly regal Dubai property.

Guests approach the resort via a decadent tree-lined avenue – we can guarantee the sight of the hotel alone will take your breath away. Stay in one of the 292 lavish rooms and suites, and be prepared to surrender to a life of luxury, splendour and, most importantly, choice.

All four properties at Madinat Jumeirah are set amidst emerald gardens and meandering waterways with traditional abras (water taxis). Guests can enjoy the range of over 40 restaurants, bars, coffee shops and nightclubs, as well as a souk with over 75 boutiques, an opulent Talise Wellness Spa, Quay Health Club, theatre and the Sinbad's Kids' Club which is only steps away from Wild Wadi Waterpark. Such a range of facilities ensures this is a magical destination for both couples and families alike, with warm, sun-drenched beaches and a friendly, welcoming service that's second to none.


Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family holiday, Al Qasr and Madinat Jumeirah will inspire, excite and refresh. Guests can take a 20-minute abra tour through the resort’s meandering waterways on arrival, ensuring you catch a glimpse of everything that’s on offer.

For those who want to maintain a fitness regime during their holiday, Talise Fitness boasts an array of exceptional fitness facilities and programmes for the entire family. Alternatively, visit the High Altitude Suite for a unique training experience.

Guests at Al Qasr can enjoy complimentary access to the Wild Wadi Waterpark, which is widely considered one of the best water parks in the world. So whether you’re young, or just young at heart, you’re sure to have a great time splashing around.

The PBI Tennis Programme offers a wide range of lessons and social activities for the whole family, while the Sinbad’s Kids’ Club boasts over 1,000 square metres of play areas and pools, as well as exciting activities such as face painting, arts and crafts, and sports.

Try your hand at a variety of watersports, visit the theatre, lounge on the private beach, go rock climbing, enjoy the world-class spa – what else could you want from a luxury Dubai resort?



With over 40 restaurants, bars and lounges to choose from at Madinat Jumeirah, it’s rare to find a hotel with so much choice when it comes to dining. Each restaurant features a distinct theme, location and style, so you’ll certainly never be fed up – in fact, you’ll never want to leave!

There’s no other way to summarise the dining options than to describe them as a representative of the world’s best cuisines. One evening you’ll be transported to a charming English pub as you savour comforting roast lamb or fish and chips, and the next night you’ll be in Tuscany, Tokyo or Thailand. There’s plenty of authentic Arabic cuisine to try as well, not to mention an enticing array of sweet treats at the delectable Cake Boutique.

As you’d expect, you’ll also be in entertainment galore at Al Qasr. Watch brilliant musicals, stand-up comedy and ballet at the Madinat Theatre, or wander the endless meandering avenues of the resort’s very own souk, where you’ll discover all sorts of sights, scents and surprises round every corner.

The hotel boasts recycling bins throughout the property, making it easy for both guests and staff to contribute to waste reduction. Water conservation is also a priority, evident in the presence of water coolers and dispensers, as well as water-efficient toilets and showers.

Perhaps one of the most significant achievements is the complete elimination of single-use plastics across the entire hotel. This not only minimises waste but also preserves the stunning natural surroundings.

Energy efficiency is another key focus, with the hotel's LED lighting and double-glazed windows significantly reducing the need for heating and cooling.

Madinat Jumeirah, Al Qasr also demonstrates its commitment to local food sourcing; 80% of ingredients come from the surrounding region and it proudly serves sustainable seafood in selected restaurants.

Beyond the confines of the hotel, Al Qasr supports the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project – a crucial initiative for the survival of endangered turtles – and champions local businesses by partnering with local guides for tours.

Guests staying in Suites and Executive Rooms benefit from access to the Premium Leisure Club which offers exclusive access to an additional lounge area offering a spacious area to relax as well as complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, and a pre-dinner drinks and canapé service. Premium Leisure Club guests also enjoy late check out, complimentary return transfers and the choice to enjoy breakfast at Aboretum and Khaymat Al Bahar.
