About Palm Jumeirah in Dubai

Majestically presiding over the Jumeirah coast, the Palm Jumeirah Dubai flaunts itself as the smallest among the three popular artificial archipelagos of the Palm Island. Created by Nakheel, a company undertaken by the Dubai government, the Palm Islands were meant to get extended up to the Persian Gulf, which would thereby cater to the flourishing economy of Dubai, UAE. On a Palm Jumeirah visit, tourists can indulge in a variety of experiences at the beach or at the luxury hotels.

Features of Palm Jumeirah Dubai

Shaped in the form of a palm tree, the Palm Island is the largest artificially built island in the world. It has been proficiently developed and designed by Helman Hurley Charvat Peacock/Architects, using the Dutch dredging technology. The three archipelago presently harbors a sum of 2000 villas and 40 lavish hotels. Apart from this, it has many luxurious resorts, shopping centers, movie theaters and a number of other things which cater to the needs of a population of around 5,00,000 people residing there.

The Palm Island is facilitated with a thorough network of railway lines for the purpose of transportation. A 5.4 km long monorail named as the Palm Jumeirah Monorail runs parallelly, joining the Atlantis Hotel at the beginning and the Gateway Towers at the end of the island’s periphery. It also attaches the Palm Jumeirah to the proper city of Dubai. By the end of 2009, the network was further expanded to the Red Line of the Dubai Metro, ultimately earning the honor of being the first monorail to successfully run in the Middle East.

Palm Jumeirah Construction

The Palm Jumeirah is designed in the most proficient way to prevent damage from the heavy sea waves. Hence by stopping the natural water movement, the seawater within the border of the Palm is made to remain stagnant. This was made possible by creating an additional gap in the barrier. The breakwater in the megastructure was later modified to allow a considerable movement of water as well as facilitate oxygenation of the stagnant seawater. This surprisingly has advocated the marine life resulting in the intrusion of new marine species as well. Visitors can easily get a glimpse of the enchanting views of life underwater through the mega-aquariums here.

Palm Jumeirah Beach

There are several luxury hotels with beachfront properties where guests can unwind with a cool swim. Palm Dubai club offers motorised watersports such as jet ski, banana boat, and wakeboarding at the beach. Riva Beach Club, Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa, Rixos The Palm Dubai, and Fairmont The Palm are exclusive places to enjoy the sands of Palm Islands.

The archipelago, though accounted as the smallest among the three islands, is famous for some lavish resorts and luxury hotels which also offers residential options and hence attracts innumerable people from around the world. To name a few, would be Atlantis, The Palm, The Fairmont Palm Hotel and resort, St. Regis Dubai- The Palm, Wanderlof Astoria, Dubai Palm Jumeirah, Kingdom of Sheba, Palm Jumeirah, Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai.

The visitors are also offered with numerous options of lip-smacking dishes in the world’s topmost dining inns like Nakheel Mall, the Pointe, the Broadwalk, Al Ittihad Park, and Club Vista Mare.
