A Remarkable Stay at a Dubai Villa on the Palm Jumeirah

A Remarkable Stay at a Dubai Villa on the Palm Jumeirah

I had the unique pleasure of staying at a 4 bedroom Dubai Villa on the Palm Jumeirah, and what an experience it was.  We arrived at the villa mid-morning, and settled into its 500 m² of spaciousness. I was impressed by the marble floors, countertops, and modern décor, offering a relaxing atmosphere that conveys the “you are on holiday” message.

The kids immediately made their way to the private swimming pool on the side yard, as I pulled up a recliner and reposed with a good book in hand. The villa had a large selection of pool toys and a built-in slide that keep the children entertained all afternoon as I soaked in the warm rays of sunshine.

It doesn’t get any Better than a Beachfront Dubai Villa!

Later that evening, we took a sunset stroll along the beach, which was just a few steps down from our backyard. This Dubai Villa was beachfront. How does it get any better than that?

The next day, the hubby decided to try his hand at fishing. With his new fishing pole in hand, he headed down to the edge of the water and planted his rod in the sand. Several hours passed with no bites, and we began to wonder if there were any fish swimming within the waterways of the fronds. He left the pole, and headed to the house for a cold beer.

In the meantime, the kids pulled out the kayak, and paddled their way around while I exercised my lungs blowing up the raft then casted off for my own paddling pleasure. I closed my eyes and thought to myself, “This is paradise.”

But that thought was interrupted by the screeches of my husband. I abruptly sat up in the raft, and nearly fell into the water as my eye caught him running down the steps from the villa on to the beach. He was chasing after his new pole, which seemed to have a life of its own. A large fish had finally taken the bait, and pulled his rod out from sand. I must admit, I did find it quite humorous to watch him scurrying down the beach trying to catch it, to no avail. (I wish I had had my video camera to capture the moment.) And, so ended his dreams of becoming a fisherman.

The Perfect End to a Fantastic Experience

Our trip ended on a high note, with our villa ideally positioned across from the Atlantis – The Palm, we were able to catch its Grand Opening Ceremony. We watched on as the hotel lit up in an incredible light show with 3D holograms that appeared to come to life, and the sounds of Australian singer, Kylie Minogue singing “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” in the background. But nothing compared to being in the center of the world’s largest fireworks display.
