The 5 Best Reasons to Call Dubai Festival City Your Next Home

Assigned by your company to Dubai or bit by the wander bug and thinking of moving your family to this cosmopolitan city? Perhaps you simply want to make a change and believe you need a more permanent Dubai address. Let your search for the best houses and apartments in Dubai commence, then.

It’s pretty certain that Dubai Festival City will be one of your primary options. The following are the 5best reasons why Dubai Festival City must be your next Dubai address.

1.    It has some of the best flats in the UAE

Dubai Festival City, set against the scenic Dubai Creek, is home to some of the best properties in Dubai: Marsa Plaza, Al Badia Residences, and Al Badia Hillside.

●      Marsa Plaza

Marsa Plaza, a famous Dubai landmark, is one of the best real estate properties in the city and one of the most centrally located residential developments in Dubai Festival City.

This modern residential high-rise development offers potential buyers and tenants a choice from among one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units. Amenities include a gym, outdoor swimming pools, and fitness studios with regular classes. There’s also a local supermarket, hairdressers, and dry cleaners, as well as a popular restaurant. It is also close to Dubai Festival City Mall, and has one of the most magnificent Dubai skyline views of all flats in the UAE.

●      Al Badia Residences

Al Badia Residences is a Mediterranean oasis of tranquillity and calm in the middle of the entertainment and leisure hub that is the Dubai Festival City. Set among verdant landscaped gardens, this low-rise development invites one to take a leisurely walk and breathe in the fresh air. This is ideally located for families who have school-age children because it is very close to two international schools and the Al Areesh Club. You can rent two-, three-bedroom apartments at Al Badia Residences.

●      Al Badia Hillside

Al Badia Hillside captivates with its earthy, rich hues and textures that mix Mediterranean and traditional Arabian architectural influences. And every apartment has been uniquely crafted, so no two apartments are the same. The setting, landscaping, unique aesthetic, and spaciousness of the apartments make Al Badia Hillside the best place to live in Dubai with family. One-, two-, and three-bedroom units are available for sale.

2.    It has a central location

Dubai Festival City is a residential, business, and entertainment centre. It is a destination, and people go there to work, shop, dine, and unwind. Now, imagine how very convenient it is if you live right in the middle of all that it has to offer. And it is close to everything else you want to be in Dubai. It is a mere two kilometres away from the Dubai International Airport; that’s less than 10 minutes away. It is also quite close to the beach. The Jumeirah Beach, Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, and Dubai Marina are only 20 to a little over 30 minutes away.

The Dubai Festival City is also connected to everywhere else through an extensive network of buses and private taxis, as well as nearby train stations.

3.    It is located near the best schools in Dubai

Living in Dubai Festival City means being close to the top schools in Dubai.

There are two international schools in Dubai Festival City: the Deira International School and the Universal American School. These schools are among the most reputable international schools in the city. And all around the Dubai Festival City are some of the best private schools in Dubai. Around 10 minutes away by car are the Al Khaleej International School, Sarah School, The City School International Dubai, and the Nadd Al Hamar School. Across the creek, approximately 15 minutes away, are the Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai, the Dubai English Speaking School, and the English Language School.

Dubai Festival City is also near higher education options such as the Al Falah University, Al Dar University College, University of Cambridge, and the University of Modern Sciences.

And across the creek, around 15 minutes away, are the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and the European University College. Still accessible but a little farther out is Al Wasl University.

4.    It’s near the best clinics and hospitals.

Families also love the fact that medical care is never far away from Dubai Festival City residents. There’s the Al Futtaim HealthHub. Located inside Dubai Festival City, it provides a wide range of specialised medical services. Also inside Dubai Festival City are the Ritz Dental Clinic, Dr Mohannad Dental Clinic, and Smile Spa Dental Clinic.

There are even more hospitals in the vicinity. Drive towards Al Garhoud, and after around 10 minutes, you will get to the Mediclinic Welcare Hospital, Prime Hospital, HMS Al Garhoud Hospital, and Adam Vital Hospital. Drive across the creek, and you get even more options: Clemenceau Medical Center, Latifa Women and Children Hospital, Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital, Mediclinic City Hospital, Dr Rami Hamed Center, Emirates Specialty Hospital, and American Hospital Dubai.

5.    It’s got the best lifestyle hub.

There is no doubt about it. Dubai Festival City has some of the city’s best shopping, dining, and entertainment. The Dubai Festival City Mall has more than 300 fashion retail stores and around 40 health and beauty stores. Yes, you can probably shop till you drop at Dubai Festival City Mall.

But you won’t because you can rest and savour some of the best food in Dubai at the mall’s nearly 100 food and beverage outlets. If you are looking for some other dining options or looking to stay at a hotel for some R&R, you can go to the Crowne Plaza, InterContinental, InterContinental Residence Suites, and the Holiday Inn. And, of course, you will love the world-class entertainment options available. There’s IMAGINE playing every night at Festival Bay, and Novo Cinemas.

There’s Bounce-X, the world’s first freestyle terrain park, and Fabyland for rides and arcade games. Dream Aero simulates the take-off and landing experience, whilst dhow rides will have you sailing on the creek while watching the fabulous sunset.
