What Is It Like Living In Palm Jumeirah?

Written by Silvana Fitzpatrick

When it comes to living in Palm Jumeirah, there are many options to choose from, as the artificial island offers luxury villas, modern residential apartments, elegant hotels, and beautiful penthouses, all of which are ideal for a lavish lifestyle. So let us see what living in a Palm Jumeirah villa or apartment is like.

Well Connected

Though an island, Palm Jumeirah is well-connected to the mainland due to its trunk and cars, which can drive on and off the island freely. It does not have a Dubai Metro connection, but it has its own monorail, which stretches along the island's trunk and has four stations, the Gateway Station, the Atlantis Aquaventure station, Al Ittihad Park station, and the Nakheel Mall station. The main station, i.e., the Gateway station, links up with the Dubai Tram by a walkway. The main station operates seven days a week and runs every 15 minutes from 9 am to 10 pm. The whole area also has a well-serviced RTA bus facility with bus stops all around the area.

Rent Prices

The height of luxury would be the Fronds, which have a private beach for tenants and homeowners, along with a mansion-sized villas, which may even have more than seven bedrooms. The one-bedroom flats cost about Dh89,000 on average and Dh114000 and Dh145000 for a two and three-bedroom apartment, respectively. The larger properties have an average rental price of Dh1 million a year but can increase depending on size and location. 

Location And Landmarks

The first landmark you can view, even from far apart, is the Atlantis Hotel, one of the 20 hotels and resorts on Palm Jumeirah, including Fairmont The Palm, FIve Hotel, and Anantara The Palm. The Atlantis is nestled between the calm turquoise waters of the Gulf and the majestic Dubai skyline. It is also said to be the crown of the island. The Abdul Rahman Siddik Mosque is the only mosque on the island and is another standout feature. Palm Jumeirah is one of the most visited tourist sites with its own water park, Aquaventure.


Nakheel Mall is a multi-floor shopping center that can fulfill all your retail needs, with more than 350 shops and restaurants. It is very easy to access via car or the monorail as it is situated on the trunk. Palm Jumeirah also has numerous beach clubs, which can be accessed along the shoreline apartments for very reasonable entrance fees. The Palm Tower at the center of the island is one of the main upcoming projects. The 52-story tower is part hotel and part luxury residence, whose star attraction will be its rooftop pool, restaurant, and viewing deck complex. Another major attraction at Palm Jumeirah is The Pointe which consists of shops and restaurants along with a dog-friendly beach. The Palm Fountain is the centerpiece of The Pointe, a choreographed fountain holding the Guinness World Record for the world's largest fountain. 


So these are the luxuries you can get when staying in Palm Jumeirah. It is a one-stop destination for all your dreams and has many benefits.
