The largest and best shopping center on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai is the Nakheel Mall. You will find there many shops, restaurants and also cafes where you can go shopping in the Emirate.
Panorama of the Nakheel Mall
A large shopping center has still been missing on the palm island and the tourists and also inhabitants always had to go to the mainland. As a rule, the Dubai Marina Mall and the Mall of the Emirates were the next ones to reach. But since December 2, 2019, the Nakheel mall opened there and it is a great and modern shopping mall that can keep the loosely with the others. As you can already see on behalf, the operator is the real estate company Nakheel from Dubai. By the way, the state-owned company has also built the artificial island. It is estimated that the construction costs should have around 300 million euros. How to be used by Dubai to find only the best it’s just on the market. The best way to go by there is when you’re nearby. That will be worthwhile.
The most important question is certainly what there is there for shops at all. Currently, you will find around 140 shops where you can find a fashion, pharmacy, bank, perfume, hairdresser up to a sports shop almost everything you need to do daily. Thus, it is very practical for the inhabitants and you can buy the food on-site, for example, in the Waitrose supermarket. If you stay there in a hotel as a tourist then the branch of Etisalat is certainly interesting. There are also several providers where you can change money. By the way, you can always recognize these on the inscription Money Exchange. Then you will find another office from the Tourist Office Dubai where you can get free brochures as a traveler.
Of course, you should also inform yourself how to actually reach the Nakheel Mall at all. That’s easy and there are different ways to use it. For example, if you stay at the Atlantis The Palm Hotel then you can use the Palm Jumeirah Monorail. This moves right next to the hotel and there is a stop right on the shopping mall. Thus you only need to change there and in a few minutes, you are there. But if you stay in the One & Only The Palm then it is easiest if you can go there by taxi.
The Food Court in the Nakheel Mall
The same applies to visitors from the mainland who booked a hotel in the Dubai Marina. There are also many tourists who have a rental car. For these are then available over 4,000 parking spaces. By the way, the shopping center is directly on the so-called trunk. This is the trunk from the island where there is also a large area where you could build the mall. When you are pedestrians and live nearby then you can reach them over the Al Ittihad Park.
The opening hours of the Nakheel Mall are from Saturday to Wednesday between 10:00 to 22:00. At the weekend in Dubai, you have a little more time and from Thursday to Friday, this opened from 10:00 to 24:00. So every day of the week you have the opportunity to go there which is very convenient. But you have to know that it always has significantly more visitors in the malls of Dubai at the weekend. If you want to have his peace then you should visit these right at the beginning of the week, or even early in the morning. Of course, many guest workers and residents of Dubai want to visit the shopping center at the weekend.
As in every big mall in Dubai, the Nakheel Mall also has a large food court. This is certainly interesting if you stayed in a hotel on Palm Island and have booked only breakfast. Then you have to go somewhere in the evening to eat something. You will find around 30 Food and Beverage shops where you get something to eat and drink. Furthermore, there were also a few fast-food chains settled with a branch. If you do not find anything there then you still have the opportunity to visit The Pointe Dubai that is exactly opposite the Atlantis Hotel. There is a lot of good restaurants and cafes where you still have a great view of the hotel.
A highlight of the Nakheel Mall is certainly that there is direct access to the viewing platform The View at the Palm. This is located at The Palm Tower where there is still a hotel. At a height of 230 meters, you have a sensational view of the artificial island. However, these have not opened yet and you have to finish the hotel first. By the way, this would certainly be an interesting way to stay in Dubai. So a lot has developed there and in recent years has been built very much in this area by the Emirate.
As a rule, the prices are the same or similar to every major shopping center in Dubai. For example, you will find many equal shops in the Dubai Mall. But the Nakheel Mall has been built for the inhabitants and tourists on the island. Thus, these are achieved very fast and do not have to drive away by taxi. There are always cheap offers where you can then make a bargain. It will certainly be particularly interesting if the Dubai Shopping Festival or the Dubai Summer Surprises are currently.
The Nakheel Mall is definitely recommended for a visit and you should stop by where you have booked a hotel on the island. So you have the opportunity to go a bit strolling in the evening. Furthermore, there will certainly be an observation platform interesting and the hotel.
