The Buzz and Beauty of Al Barsha
Al Barsha has all the hustle and bustle Dubai holidaymakers love along with peaceful parks and quieter areas, ideal for those looking for the best of both worlds.
Being in Dubai, Al Barsha has all the fun you’d expect it to have but without the flashiness of the other areas of the city. Al Barsha is more of an unassuming and nuanced affair, maintaining the buzz of the big city but offering more in terms of authentic UAE culture. Many of the amusements are based in the mall, with family friendly features and cultural attractions to fulfil your time during Al Barsha holidays.
If you thrive in a buzzing environment then take a trip into Dubai proper, where you can admire many of the main attractions on Sheikh Zahed Road, where many of the cities newly-built skyscrapers sit. For something a little less manmade Jumeirah Beach is only a short drive away. The white sand beach stretches across the coast surrounded by iconic buildings and easy access to luxurious living. Further down the coast is the Dubai Marina, home to the Dubai Marina Mall which features over 130 outlets. The shopaholic’s dream includes boutiques, high street fashion shops and authentic and international restaurants.
Many of the traditional attractions on holidays in Al Barsha are situated in the mall. It is here that hosts Ski Dubai, the amazing indoor ski park where it snows year-round. The kids will love the snow park, packed with adventurous slopes suited to all ages and the snow bullet, a 150 metre-long zip line. If you’d rather keep the snow to a minimum, head to the Magic Planet Amusement Centre, which features ten pin bowling, arcades and rides, without a flake of snow in sight.
For a dose of culture during your holiday to Barsha, the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre will exceed your needs and expectations. The centre hosts a variety of art exhibitions and theatre performances, as well as regular dance, music and film events. Your stay will be made comfortable by the range of hotels we have on offer, including all inclusive 5-star accommodation suited groups of all sizes.
What to do on a city break
Dubai is one of the greatest city breaks because of its value for money. Where else in the world can you enjoy enormous manmade beaches, explore the world's largest shopping mall and go skiing on the same day?
Al Barsha is one of the newer residential areas, so it's a little quieter than some of the hotels on Jumeirah Beach. Ideal for a family holiday, Al Barsha means you can get in and out of central Dubai, but return to somewhere where there's a little peace and quiet so you can recuperate after the hectic adventure during the day.
