I feel so lucky every time I go to the beach the weather seems to cooperate giving me just the perfect touch of the sun. Normally in this time of year in Dubai the heat would be unbearable. To my surprise it was the opposite.
We went to Madinat Jumeirah last Saturday noon. Mina A’Salam was our first choice after seeing good reviews and nice photos on the internet. We took a taxi from Mirdif to Jumeirah that took 40 minutes. Take note that there are other hotels and residential villas such as Al Qasr and Dar Al Masyaf which are also under Madinat Jumeirah.
We were approached by lovely attendants from the lobby. Since we just want to use their amenities such as the swimming pool and the beach we were advise to pay for a ‘day pass‘ that costs 250 dirhams each (towels included but without food and drinks). Yes it’s quite costly but it’s worth paying for an exemplary service if you feel having a private and relaxing place to unwind.
The place was magical. It’s like seeing the movie Aladdin in real life with it’s Arabic setting. I would absolutely count this visit as one of the best time I had experience in Dubai.
This is the lounge area where they also serve food.
Food was amazing costs around 70 dirhams – glad we got entertainer vouchers in hand!
Perfect view of Burj Al Arab from Mina A’Salam Beach
We got so excited when we saw the beach.
The wave’s so strong crashing and pulling us heavily. Had me knock down many times but it was the most fun part.
Well I have nothing more to describe about how wonderful this place is. Let the photos speak for themselves and you’ll be the judge. x
PS. Thanks Lisa for the treat!
