Whether you’re looking for stylish and quirky boutiques, a number of restaurants serving all kinds of delicious cuisine, the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner, or simply a place to feel the sand between your toes, Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) has it all and continues to evolve by the minute. JBR is a lovely place to while away a day (or two!) so with that being said I’ve put together a few ideas for you to really make the most of this area.
Chill out at the Sheraton
If you’re looking to either relax with a good book, catch some rays, have a swim, or treat the family to a day out in the gorgeous Dubai sunshine, a pool and beach pass to the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort is your answer. This five-star luxury beach resort is one of Dubai’s favourite beach havens and is the ultimate paradise. With superb relaxation and leisure facilities set in the middle of 10,000 square meters of landscaped gardens shaded by palm trees, this is utter bliss!
Cool off with Watercooled
If you haven’t had a go at Paddleboarding yet then seriously where have been? It’s time to get down with the cool kids and have a go at this watersport with Watercooled. Based right on the water’s edge and at the Double Tree by Hilton hotel, Watercooled will soon have you gliding gracefully along the calm sea… Or, you’ll fall face first into the chilly water. Either way, you (and those around you!) are guaranteed a giggle!
Eat at Leopold’s of London
A great location where you can look out onto the stunning sea view and people watch. A cafe during the day, a bistro at night, Leopold’s of London offers hearty delicious food, extraordinary coffee and inspirational tea (you’ll know what I mean if you’ve seen the HUGE wall dedicated to every delicious tea imaginable).
Shop at The Market On The Beach
Take a mooch around a diverse mix of unique stalls filled with local arts and crafts, one-off fashion pieces, bespoke jewellery pieces and much much more. Just remember to take your purse… You won’t be able to resist!
Work out with Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club
It’s time to make that New Years fitness resolution a reality with a one-month membership or your very own personal training sessions at Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Club, Amwaj Rotana. Featuring state of the art facilities such as a fully-equipped gym complete with TechnoGym and TRX equipment, and also a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and outdoor temperature-controlled swimming pool where members can relax and unwind. But the best bit? You can work up a sweat in the gym and then cool off in the sea!
Eat at Busaba
If you love authentic Thai food then you need to go to Busaba Eathai! One of the UK’s leading Thai restaurants, founded in 1999 by Alan Yau, creator of Hakkasan and Wagamama, has now, luckily for us, been brought to The Beach JBR. Busaba is known for its exquisite Thai delicacies, flavoursome selection of freshly prepared salads, stir-fries, curries, noodle dishes, grilled meats and fish. Make sure to try the massaman duck curry, ginger beef stir-fry and Thai calamari.
Pamper yourself with The Spa – Hilton JBR
Nothing says pamper day more than a relaxing 50Min Swedish Massage and The Spa, located in the Hilton JBR, is the perfect place to get one of the best. Immerse yourself in the spa experience the moment you arrive with service which is second to none and fabulous views over the Arabian Gulf. The Spa have got all those little details you look for in a spa including your own cosy robe, slippers, complimentary tea and fresh juice so you can truly leave feeling refreshed, renewed and revitalised.
Catch the sunset at Pure
For front row seats to the beautiful Dubai sunset than look no further than Pure Sky Lounge. Sip your favourite beverage with friends or savour infused Pan-Asian cuisine in the rooftop lounge, bar and restaurant overlooking the Arabian Gulf. With two expansive terraces, Pure Sky Lounge & Dining is an idyllic setting to watch the sunset in a chic and laid back atmosphere.
What are you waiting for? Get yourselves down to JBR and enjoy a whole day dedicated to this amazing area. Oh, and another thing. All of these places (except The Market On The Beach) are in your ENTERTAINER! Have fun!
