Jumeirah’s range of fine hotels and resorts makes for some of the most family-friendly luxury properties in Dubai, with their themed kids clubs, numerous restaurants and mix of spacious guestrooms, suites and villas that can comfortably house the whole family. What’s more, during your stay with Jumeirah on your five-star family break, you’ll get complimentary access to the Wild Wadi Waterpark, which children – and indeed adults – will absolutely love! And, while little ones are keeping busy with the range of activities, games, clubs, playrooms and toys onsite, you’ll be able to unwind in quiet calm and absolute comfort courtesy of each Jumeirah resort’s signature Talise Spa. Of course that’s just the start, as every Jumeirah hotel has its own appeal, unique architecture, bespoke features, views and style. So, with all of this in mind, here at Infinity & Beyond Travel we’ve taken an insider look at some of the top Jumeirah family hotels in Dubai, exploring the best room categories if travelling with the brood.
Family-friendly accommodation options
Jumeirah Madinat Al Naseem: Family Suite
Beginning with the contemporary Jumeirah Al Naseem which, at the time of writing, is one of Jumeirah’s newest Dubai properties, you’ll find lots of family-friendly features here, and a range of sizeable luxury suites too. Daytimes at this particular Jumeirah family hotel are easily spent, with Sinbad’s Kids Club and KiDS at Jumeirah Al Naseem offering something for every age, with watersports, beach games, an indoor jungle gym and soft play area, arts and crafts, cake decorating and even camel rides from the hotel all available. There’s then babysitting service for toddlers, going up to beach bootcamp, a junior lifeguard programme, outdoor cinema, football billiards and themed dinners for teens. When it comes to your stay at Jumeirah Al Naseem, the Family Suite is particularly good for families.
Jumeirah Madinat Al Qasr: Three-Bedroom Royal Suite
Palatial Jumeirah Al Qasr could not be more different to Al Naseem architecturally, as walls of glass and space-age design are replaced by a much more traditional take on Middle Eastern opulence: all ornate balconies, pillars and evocative stonework throughout. What doesn’t change, however, is Jumeirah’s signature five-star service, top onsite facilities and host of family-friendly room options. You’ll get the same access to the endless fun at Sinbad’s Kids Club and Wild Wadi Waterpark, of course, as well as multiple restaurants, the Talise Spa, gym and yoga classes too. And of the 294 guestrooms and suites at Jumeirah Al Qasr, the best family choice is the Three-Bedroom Royal Suite.
Jumeirah Madinat Dar Al Masyaf: Malakiya Two-Bedroom Villa, Malakiya Three-Bedroom Villa & Royal Malakiya Villa
With instant beach access, grounds complete with connecting waterways and gondolas, tropical gardens and ‘summerhouse’ style accommodation options, Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf provides something just a little bit different, which young and old alike will love. Children will be suitably entertained by the various games and clubs of KiDS with great kids murals on the wall at Madinat Jumeirah, while you enjoy the beach and spa. And when it comes to family-friendly accommodation at Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf you won’t be disappointed either, with these three large multi-room villas offering everything you’ll need.
Jumeirah Mina A’Salam: The Royal Suite
Jumeirah Madinat Mina A’Salam combines a great beachfront setting with a few adult-orientated areas, lounge bars and a personalised health clinic with plenty of space for little ones to play around in and Sinbad’s Kids Club too. The Royal Suite is the main standout room option, with a stunning interior design, a Jacuzzi, extra beds and a sea-facing balcony for families.
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah: Deluxe One-Bedroom Suite, Sky One-Bedroom Suite, Panoramic One-Bedroom Suite, Deluxe Two-Bedroom Suite, Burj Two-Bedroom Family Suite, Burj Three-Bedroom Family Suite, Diplomatic Three-Bedroom Suite, Presidential Two-Bedroom Suite & Royal Two-Bedroom Suite
Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel needs no introduction, as this particular luxury property is among the country’s most recognisable thanks to its unique architectural design and striking décor throughout. Inside, you’ll also be treated to no less than five swimming pools to service just 201 guestrooms (far fewer than some of the larger family-friendly resorts), and nine onsite restaurants to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters, including one with its own indoor aquarium. Then, in addition to Sinbad’s Kids Club and waterpark access, Dubai’s Burj Al Arab Jumeirah also invites younger guests under the age of 16 to stay for free as part of their family summer package, which is always welcome. Depending on the size of your family group, the room choices above are particularly good.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel: Ocean Family Deluxe, Two-Bedroom Ocean Suite, Family Garden Suite, Three-Bedroom Ocean Suite, Beit Al Bahar One Bedroom Royal Villa & Beit Al Bahar Two Bedroom Royal Villa
When it comes to a top Jumeirah family resort, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel has it all: floodlit tennis and indoor squash courts; a private beach and exclusive beachfront villas; 5 swimming pools; 13 restaurants and bars; a beautiful Talise Spa; kids club and nearly 600 rooms to choose from. Of those, some of the standout categories if travelling to Dubai as a family are those listed above.
Why Should Families Choose Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts?
Overall, though at first glance the Jumeirah hotels and resorts may look more suited to adults and couples visiting Dubai, what with their cutting-edge design, five-star facilities, prime locations and host of world-class restaurants, they actually make for a first-class family-friendly Dubai holiday. Thoughtful extras such as the waterpark entry, various kids clubs and games, classes, sports and babysitting services go a long way when travelling with children, as do spacious and well-equipped suites and villas, which all Jumeirah hotels are blessed with. So, if looking to dwell in the lap of luxury on your family trip to Dubai, without worrying that younger guests will be stuck for things to do, the Jumeirah hotels and resorts are a fantastic choice.
