The Buddha Bar is very nice option to have lunch, dinner or to have a break drink. The place is large and luxury and the servise is a FIVE stars.

Great service, beautiful rooms and decor and the most unbelievable food. We had dumplings, sushi and wagau steak. Everything was just really really good and although expensive, it really was a great experience.

The big variety of dishes makes it hard to make a choice but either way, you will have a delicious meal. Every dish we tasted was perfect. The atmosphere makes this restaurant even a better place to have your dinner. Absolutely loved the Buddha Bar, I would recommend it to everyone.

Along with 3 friends, we visited Buddha Bar for the 3rd time. As always the service and food quality were impeccable but still they managed to top it. The ambiance was amazing, good music, quick service even though it was packed and needs were anticipated so we never had to call someone. We would like to highlight the outstanding service... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
