You’ll be welcomed into a buzzing community on holidays to Jumeirah Lakes Towers. Diverse dining, movie nights and flea markets are on the cards.
New kid on the block
Jumeirah Lakes Towers – or JLT to locals – is the latest addition to so-called New Dubai, joining the likes of Jumeirah Beach Residence and Al Barsha. Its lofty skyscrapers are clustered around three, manmade lakes and a 13-acre park. Plus, swanky Dubai Marina’s just across the highway.
This neighbourhood’s big on dining. There are 250 restaurants, with new ones popping up all the time. And you’ll never have to dine on the same cuisine more than once – you can take your pick from Indian restaurants, American diners, pizzerias and organic, health-centric cafés. Their views aren’t half bad, either, with most set by the lake or park.
Jumeirah Lakes Towers isn’t just a tourist resort, it’s a community. This means you can expect a full roster of events, like free movie nights and flea markets – both of which are held at the JLT Park. Plus, Spanish-born graffiti artist Ruben Sanchez chose the neighbourhood as a base for his huge, futuristic mural – one of the city’s largest pieces of street art.
