Living The Luxury Island Life At Palm Jumeirah - Dubai

By: John Hill

Located on the Jumeirah coastal area of Dubai, Palm Jumeirah is the smallest of the trio of Palm Islands constructed as a tribute to the "cherished date tree". The other two of the Palm Islands include Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira.

A Discerning Landmark Even From Outer Space

In a kingdom of exceptional property development projects, Palm Jumeirah holds its own as Dubai's most ambitious and recognizable project to date. Designed to resemble the prized date tree, this unique man-made island consists of the main trunk with a crown comprising of 17 fronds. The surrounding crescent island forms an innovative 11km long breakwater. A 300-meter bridge connects the crown to the mainland and a sub-sea tunnel connects the crescent to the top of the palm.

Doubling the length of the Dubai coastline; the entire island measures 5km by 5km with a total area that is larger than 800 football pitches put together. Large enough to be seen from outer space and with a shape that could not be mistaken for any other, Palm Jumeirah is truly a discerning landmark from earth as well as from outer space.

The Best Of Island Living

Conceived as a luxurious retreat and residential area for living, leisure and relaxation, this man-made island offers villas, shoreline apartment buildings, themed boutique hotels, five-star hotels, marinas, beaches, beach cafes, restaurants and an endless assortment of retail outlets.

The trunk of this palm tree shaped property development is lined with plush town houses and state-of-the-art apartment blocks right on the shoreline. The three types of luxury signature villas, which include Garden Homes, Signature Villas and Canal Cove Town Homes, take up most of the branches. Every single dwelling, no matter what the category, is spacious, luxurious and well-finished and offers their residents private beaches besides a host of other amenities and facilities. In addition to all this, residents can enjoy spectacular views of the man made beaches.

Some of the leading international hotel brands that dot this exclusive island include Movenpick Resort & Spa Palm Jumeirah, Movenpick Resort Oceana Palm Jumeirah, Dusit, Taj Exotica Resort and Spa, Shangri La, Oberoi, Marriott, Radisson SAS, Kempinski, Antara, Fairmont Palm Residence and Hilton amongst others.

The Making Of The Island

Palm Jumeirah is the end result of four years of methodical and careful planning and exhaustive feasibility studies to ensure that the islands would not have an adverse effect on the environment or disrupt it in any way.

The first stage of this ambitious property comprised the construction of the land foundations, which entailed transferring of sand and precise placement of rock. The second stage included the construction of the 990 feet ( 300 meter) bridges that linked the island to the main land as well as the building of infrastructure and services, followed by the construction of the home, apartments and townhouses.

Palm Jumeirah- Luxury At A Price

The privilege of owning a private beach or a private swimming pool with a Palm Jumeirah villa comes at a price, but its one that is well worth paying. A whole host of celebrity home owners who have already staked their claim on this high end property development are testament to the luxurious lifestyle that Palm Jumeirah offers its residents as well as its visitors.
