Let us look at some of the best areas of Dubai for British expats.
Downtown Dubai, also known as ‘the heart of Dubai’, is one of the most popular places to not just live, but to visit as well. With a plethora of luxury apartments available and with new developments coming up every month, Brits find their dream homes in this locality. Be it luxury apartments with private pools or views to die for (BurjKhalifa, Dubai Mall, Dubai Fountains, Dubai Opera), Downtown has everything (except a beach) to satisfy your demands. Add to this a plethora of amenities, retail outlets, luxurious restaurants, bars and lounges and you have the perfect living destination.
The ultimate beachside living experience is what Palm Jumeirah is all about! Palm Jumeirah has redefined luxury living across the world with resort-style homes on the Palm. With huge villas and apartments that come with state-of-the-art facilities, infrastructure, security and amenities, Palm Jumeirah is undoubtedly a great place to live. Away from the hustle and bustle of the core Dubai, the Palm has a more relaxed vibe. Also, the traffic within this community is next to negligible. A great community for young families, but one that comes with a fairly hefty price tag. The luxury of the Palm is accentuated by the presence of stunning five-star hotels like The Atlantis, the Waldorf Astoria, Kempinski, Anantara and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray .
Another favorite destination of the Brits is Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach Resort. Apartments and villas in these localities have always been in huge demand not just among the Brits, but across all nationalities. Dubai Marina, one of the fanciest and luxuriously made marinas in the world offers both the in-city vibe as well as the serenity of the outskirts. Maybe the only drawback can be the peak-hour traffic, which may add a further 30mins to your regular commute, but apart from that both the places are a dream to live in. This, coupled with an abundance of world-class shopping avenues, entertainment options and restaurants makes it the perfect mix for a residential option.
P.S – It’s a stone’s throw away from the beach.
