The Madinat Jumeirah ( Arabic for "City of Jumeirah ") is a hotel, leisure and business center in Dubai that opened in 2004 and is one of Dubai's most visited destinations for tourists and business travelers.

The 48-hectare facility, which belongs to the Jumeirah Group , is located not far from the famous Burj Al Arab on Jumeirah Beach. The park-like “city within the city” was built extremely elaborately as a lagoon city in the style of old Arab palaces with the typical wind towers. It is criss-crossed by waterways with a total length of 3.7 kilometers, which can be used to get to your hotel room or villa with an abra (water taxi).

In the Madinat are u. a.

  • the Souk Madinat Jumeirah , a replica souk with 75 small shops, which mainly offer antiques , handicrafts and high-quality oriental food,
  • 45 restaurants, bars and cafes,
  • the first and only theater in Dubai, the Madinat Theater with 432 seats, which is to help with international productions to improve the low cultural offer in Dubai , which many expatriates criticize ,
  • the largest conference center in the region, which offers space for 4,000 conference participants or can be converted into a ballroom in which the official Dubai version of the Vienna Opera Ball takes place every year,
  • a spa ("Talise Spa") and a sports center
  • as well as three hotels: the Al Qasr ("the palace"), the heart of the resort as a replica of a sheik's summer residence with elaborately carved wooden ceilings; the Mina a'Salam , an Arabic-style hotel; the Dar Al Masyaf with 29 free-standing two-storey private villas with private pools, traditional Arab "summer houses" modeled with their characteristic wind towers.
