The impressive Madinat Jumeirah is split into four areas, and even though the resort is quite large, each one of the hotels leaves the guest with a feeling of relaxation and tranquillity in the most luxurious of surroundings. Situated in the heart of Jumeirah beside the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Burj Al Arab hotel, the Madinat is not close to any construction work, unlike many hotels in Dubai.
