Anyone that knows me well knows how much I enjoy breaking my routine every now and then by soaking in the sun and having a mini staycation somewhere nice. And being in JA Resort always does the job for me, so I finally decided to write about this super awesome place!
This hidden gem in Jebel Ali is one of the most luxurious resorts you’ll find in the UAE. Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa includes a hotel and a resort. Although it’s only a walking distance between the resort and the hotel and you can use the same facilities no matter where you’re staying, I prefer to stay at the resort as it’s closer to everything and the rooms are more spacious.
With five swimming pools surrounded by palm trees, a big beach, luxurious spa and 11 gourmet restaurants to choose from, there is no room for boredom. There’s always something to do for everybody. Not to mention how relaxing it is passing through all those palm trees and waterfronts on your way to anywhere in the resort!
I’ve stayed in the room and in the suite, and both of them are equally amazing. The ground-floor rooms (AED 1,900) are either overlooking the beach or the gardens. The best thing about the rooms is how you get to have your own private garden space with sun beds to enjoy in case you prefer some privacy.
This time I’ve stayed at the Jasmine Suite (AED2,900) overlooking the beach, and let me tell you, waking up to the beautiful view of the greenery and the sea is to die for. The one-bedroom suite has two bathrooms, a spacious living room with a sofa bed, TV and a dining table. There is also two balconies in the suite, each overlooking an amazing view.
Value for money:
You pay for quality and they deliver! The room rates start from AED1,900 (excluding breakfas), Free Wi-Fi all over the place. And regarding the food, the rates differ in each restaurant.
I can happily say there is nothing wrong about the resort. Everything about it is dreamy, and makes me feel as if I traveled outside the UAE, yet it’s ten minutes inside Jebel Ali.
