If you’ve never heard of the Palm Jumeirah then you’re definitely missing out this beautiful building. It’s definitely one of the best Dubai hotels to be if you’re in Dubai (or even if you’re near it). You’ll find a little bit of everything to keep the entire party happy and you’re going to want to keep coming back for your vacation every single year. That’s because this is a truly unique, luxury resort the likes of which you’ve definitely never imagined. But as soon as you set food here you’re never going to want to leave again.

The Palm Jumeirah is so named because it actually resembles a palm tree (that was deliberate). The trunk is nearly three miles while the fronds are nearly the same. Each is filled with something different and unique for you and your family to do, whether it’s a five star hotel or villa or a club or restaurant or even a water park. There are some of each of these things available with this exotic locale and that means anyone who’s looking for a place to chill and recharge isn’t going to want to skip over this one along the way.

1.    Welcome to Atlantis

Who hasn’t heard of the legendary city of Atlantis, lost at sea? Well, this Atlantis is definitely not lost, but you just might want to get lost here. It’s right at the height of the palm tree, so no matter where you are in Palm Jumeirah you’re likely going to be able to see it but once you’re there it will be something else entirely. That’s because you’re going to find a five-star hotel, several restaurants with celebrity chefs and even a waterpark that your children are going to absolutely love.

For those who are looking for a little more adults entertainment, there are plenty of options for that as well. Whether you want to check out the live entertainment, get a drink or sit at the private beach with your favorite drink, you’re going to be glad you did. Of course, adults can also spend some time at the waterpark, without the kids, and have a great experience too. You may even have a better time when you take the little ones and even the teens out of the equation so you can enjoy the fun of the waterpark as well.

2.    Swim With the Wildlife! There aren’t many Dubai hotels like this one

You’re not going to want to miss out on the wildlife that’s all around the area. But it’s not just about what you can see from the beach. You can actually get an up close look at everything from dolphins and sea lines to sharks and rays when you head over to The Lost Chambers Aquarium. It’s filled with all kinds of amazing aquatic life, 65,000 animals to be exact, and you’re going to have the opportunity to see each and every one. That’s going to be a truly amazing experience for all ages.

For those who really want to see these great creatures out in nature you can head out for swimming with the dolphins. It’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and one that you’re going to want to do over and over again. Snorkeling and diving are going to be awesome too and get you even closer to some truly amazing creatures. The clear blue of these lagoons and the variety of marine life that you’re going to see are a combination that is rarely repeated anywhere else, so make sure you’re taking advantage.

3.    Have a Drink

Who doesn’t love to go out for a drink to start the weekend off right? When you’re in Dubai they absolutely love starting the weekend off with a great brunch and there are plenty of amazing places that you can do just that. If you want something quick and easy there are places like Waldorf Astoria, with their Secret Garden Brunch, which is a family-friendly option. If you want to enjoy the cocktails and some of the best quality when it comes to your brunch you’ll want to head to Nobu High Brunch instead. This is where you’re going to get a truly adult experience.

For those who are really into the food and want to learn more about world cuisine, you can even check out the Anantara Dubai for Friday Fork & Cork at Crescendo. You’ll be able to take a closer look at different cuisine from all around the world and you’ll even have the opportunity to see live cooking demonstrations. That’s going to be an amazing opportunity to try something new and to even learn how you can make it for yourself (if you’re the chef type).

4.    Take a Boat Tour

Have you heard of Splash Tours? You’re definitely going to want to hear about them when you head to Palm Jumeirah. They’re actually a speedboat company and you can get out there on a speedboat for a whole 90 minutes and explore the area. They’ll drive you all around the area so you can get a view of everything from the water. There’s even a quick stop for a photo outside Atlantis and there’s a whole lot of opportunities to check out the royal palaces that are located nearby. If you’re interested in the sites and a little adventure along the way this is definitely going to be the way to get it.

If a speedboat doesn’t sound like it’s quite your thing you can still take a tour on a boat, but this time on a kayak. You’ll actually be doing some of the paddling too so this is going to be a great workout. You’ll get to see some great sites all the way around, including the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. A kayak or stand-up paddle boarding are going to be a whole lot of fun and a great way for you to explore the area out on the water (in a calmer fashion).

5.    Enjoy the Spa

Anyone who truly wants to relax is definitely going to want to check out the Talise Ottoman Spa. It’s one of the best places to get just about anything you could want from a message to a hot tub, but what you’re really going to want to experience is the Coffee Peel. It’s a truly remarkable opportunity to be scrubbed down and buffed all over in a traditional bathhouse. And they’re going to use high-quality Turkish coffee to do it. It’s definitely one of the best uses for coffee (if you’re not going to drink it that is).

Aside from that you can enjoy full day sessions and packages or pick out individual spa experiences like a gold mask made with 24 karat gold, a rose bath where you can immerse yourself in these sweet smelling flowers or a diamond ritual. No matter what type of spa opportunities you’re looking for, you’re going to truly come out of there feeling even more refreshed and ready to take on the world. Or maybe you’ll just feel fully relaxed and ready to lounge out on the beach. Either way, it’s a great experience.

6.    Hit the Beach (Club)

You’re going to want to head here if you’re looking for a way to enjoy the best of what Palm Jumeirah has to offer. The Riva Beach Club is actually located on a private beach, and not just any private beach. It’s actually a sugar-white sand beach, which is going to be one of the prettiest that you’ve ever seen. Not only that but it has some of the most beautiful water around. And none of that even considers the club itself and everything that it has to offer.

You’ll love the beautiful swimming pool that keeps you comfortable at just the right temperature. Not only that but you’ll really love the cabana and the restaurant and you’re also going to love resting at the gazebo bar. This is definitely going to be the place to go if you’re looking for an adult vacation. After all, your perfect cocktails are right here and you’ll find some amazing things to look at, like palm trees and bougainvillea. No matter what the temperature outside, you’re going to find ways to stay cool (or warm) and you’ll definitely know why it’s located right at the base of the palm structure. It’s the first thing you’ll want to see.

7.    View it From Above

If you’ve got a little extra money the best way you could ever see Palm Jumeirah or Dubai is by helicopter. There are some beautiful things to see throughout the area and with a helicopter you’re going to have the perfect bird’s eye view of them. You’ll be able to see the World Islands, skyscrapers throughout the area and even historical sites. There’s a whole lot of amazing things out there and while you can walk the entire area, you’re going to have a much better experience if you take the time to see it from above.

Another amazing way to look at the entire area from above is to actually head up in a plane, and jump your way back down. You can do tandem skydiving if you’re looking for a little more reassurance and haven’t done it before. You can also get a wonderful view of everything below you. See the skyscrapers, the palm itself and of course the amazing beaches and buildings throughout. You’ll even reach up to 120 miles per hour while you’re falling, which is going to be an adrenaline rush for anyone.
