Default Hotels Close to the beach or Beach Hotels in Dubai

Hey all,

I am currently in Abu Dhabi and been here not long and my fiancee will be visiting me and i thought we could spend 1 week in Dubai. Now i dont know anything about Dubai as of now - never been there.

I wanted to ask are there any hotels by the beach for $150-200.
I see hotels start from $50 and go up to thousands of dollars but since i am not familiar with the area I was not sure which hotel to go for.


Thanks in advance.

Hi,

There should be plenty of options in that price range.

Suggest you try either somewhere in Dubai Marina (Sheraton Jumeirah, Hilton Jumeirah, Habtoor Grand, Mina Seyahi) or Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Umm Sequim. All are on the beach and within easy reach of most of the attractions in new Dubai. Don't think there's much between these so look out for the best specials.

Would also be worth checking out what Jebel Ali Hotel is offering as it has or is about to reopen after refurb. Its a bit further out so no quite so convenient to attractions but an easy drive/taxi ride.

Good luck finding somewhere.

Hotels on the beach are expensive and we are now in peak tourist season. As far as I am aware you are unlikely to get anything on the beach for less than USD 300 a night. Try the Royal Meridian (in The Marina) as that is usually better value than most.

Unless you plan to spend all week on the week, I'd suggest staying more inland and saving some money, especially if you are planning on exploring Dubai and won't be at the hotel for much of the time. You could end your week with a couple of days in a beach hotel as a treat.

Another poster mentioned the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, but as part of the Jumeirah Group that is very expensive. Considering the length of the coastline, there are not actually that many hotels that are right on the beach, which is one of the reasons prices are so high.

Be warned, the Holiday Inn Jumeirah is actually in Satwa on the main road facing the dockyard! Not an attractive location.

I think the one they call 'Internet City' is the one by Knowledge Village, near Media City and I reckon that's a far better location for the places you'd probably want to go.

it says Holiday Inn Jumeirah is on CORNER OF JUMEIRAH ROAD AND 60 ROAD is that the one with a nasty view?

and yes it says Holiday Inn Internet City was on TECOM ZONE, KNOWLEDGE CITY.

Main goal is to find smthing close to the beach with an decent view for like 90-150 per day. I know im asking for too much but i think smthing is available out there.

Again i have not been to Dubai, maybe the Beach should not the point of interest while searching for Hotel? But at the same time my fiancee likes goin to the beach
