Top 5 most scenic places to live in Dubai

Dubai is a particularly beautiful city, with its picturesque views of shifting sands, azure seas and breathtaking city skylines. For those who live in Dubai can certainly vouch for the pristine beauty that envelops the golden landscape. If you too plan to move to this magnificent city, then here are the places to live if you would like to wake up to a postcard view every morning.

Emirates Hills

A luxurious and premium gated community, Emirates Hills doesn’t feel like it’s in Dubai at all. Beautiful, well-maintained villas combined with tasteful landscaping easily make it one of the most scenic residential locations in the city. The properties are adjacent to the 18-hole Montgomerie Championship Golf Course. Its lush green expanse spill over into the Emirates Hills, adding to the community’s elegant charm. Expect the rents to be on the higher side which go up to approximately AED 900,000 per year!

Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR)

JBR is Dubai’s most famous beach-facing development, and is instantly recognizable thanks to its sandy-hued towers. It is a popular weekend destination for many due to The Walk and The Beach, both of which promise a pleasant walk and exciting shopping and dining options. Living here is a dream come true, and lets you lounge around in your beachwear just steps from your home. The average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in JBR is AED 130,000-150,000 per year.

Downtown Dubai/Business Bay

Living in the ultra-modern heart of the city may not be for everyone, but the view is undeniably gorgeous. It’s one of the most sought-after locations in Dubai, and for a good reason. Comfortable access to the rest of the city, proximity to some of the most scintillating entertainment Dubai has to offer, and of course, the magnificent views of the Burj Khalifa from your balcony. Imagine the prestige of living minutes from the tallest building in the world! Rents here start at AED 75,000 per year (for a studio), and go up to 160,000 per year (2-bedroom flat). Among the many beautiful buildings in the area, the most popular apartments to live in Downtown Dubai are in the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Nojoum, The Lofts, Burj Views and The Residences.


Hidden away just off of Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road road past Global Village, Al Barari maybe easy to miss, but it makes up for it through its sheer beauty. As you drive down the foliage-lined road, you discover what a green paradise it really is. A lush residential area, Al Barari is filled with villas set in their own landscaped paradise with infinity pools, water features, entertaining areas and rooftop terraces.

Currently there are 5 residential areas which you can choose from in Al Barari, including Seventh Heaven, The Reserve, The Nest, The Residences and Ashjar. All the tranquility and natural beauty comes at a cost though as rentals start at 550,000 per year.

Palm Jumeirah

Wonder what life would be like on one of mankind’s greatest innovations? Imagine being surrounded by beaches on all sides, a view of the Arabian Sea, and being close to the Dubai Marina and Mall of the Emirates. The trunk houses low-rise apartments, while the sixteen fronds has prestigious villas. The island features several private beaches, marinas, restaurants, cafes and retail outlets, as well as Atlantis The Palm; a 5 star hotel with an enormous aquarium that is home to over 65,000 marine animals. A two-bedroom apartment will cost you approximately AED 160,000 per annum.
