All-inclusive resorts in Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah
Some of Dubai’s most glamorous hotels can be found on Palm Jumeirah, the palm-shaped archipelago that crowns the Jumeirah coastline. This resort area is also home to the spectacular Aquaventure water park, the Nakheel Mall, the panoramic The View experience and the restaurant-lined The Pointe promenade which offers front-row seats to the mesmerizing Palm Fountain show (not to be mistaken with the Dubai Fountain show at Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai).
This ultra-all-inclusive Dubai resort is situated on the eastern side of the Palm Jumeirah Crescent. Rixos The Palm Hotel & Suites offers some amazing panoramic views of Jumeirah beach, the luxurious Burj al Arab hotel and Dubai’s iconic skyline. The 316 rooms and suites as well as the resort spa are designed around a Turkish theme. In addition to other Mediterranean-inspired restaurants and a steakhouse, there’s also an onsite Turkish bakery and a Turkish restaurant. This family-friendly resort features a large family pool with swim-up bar, a kids club with its splash pool, a wide range of water sports and even a diving center.
This addition to the main Rixos resort on Palm Jumeirah is located in a dedicated building at a more private location. The Rixos The Palm Luxury Suite Collection comprises spacious suites with two, three, four or five bedrooms which are perfect for large families or a group of friends. Some suites feature a private swimming pool. Other privileges of the ultra-all inclusive formula include a private check-in area, VIP amenities, in-suite breakfast and a private barbecue experience.
Also located on the eastern side of the Palm Jumeirah Crescent, a bit further offshore than the aforementioned options and therefore closer to The Pointe and Aquaventure water park is the C Central Hotel and Resort. This contemporary-styled hotel features 203 rooms and suites. Relax at the beautiful beach, take a dip in the pool, book yourself a revitalizing massage or enjoy a meal at the pool bar. You’ll be pleased to learn that this is one of the most affordable all-inclusive resorts in Dubai Palm Jumeirah.

A different vibe can be found at Five Palm Jumeirah Dubai. This insta-friendly resort is the kind of place to see and be seen. It’s located right at the entrance of Palm Jumeirah, on the west side overlooking Dubai Marina. This is where you want to stay if you’re looking for a lively beach club slash pool party vibe. Five Palm Jumeirah features 470 fabulous luxury rooms and suites, a generous palm-fringed pool, a beautiful stretch of private beach and a selection of glamorous restaurants.

All-inclusive resorts in Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach district
There’s only one all-inclusive hotel in Dubai’s exclusive JBR community. It’s located along The Walk, the popular waterfront promenade lined with shops and dining options. We love the atmosphere here, it’s lively and fun any time of day. Plus, it overlooks Blue Waters Islands which is home to the spectacular Ain Dubai Ferris wheel.
Location is what the Amwaj Rotana is all about: at The Walk, in the heart of cosmopolitan JBR and within walking distance of Dubai Marina and Blue Waters Island. Discover the many exciting sights at your doorstep or spend the day lounging by the cozy pool. The Amwaj Rotana features 301 rooms and suites and a choice of cuisines from around the world. This affordable all-inclusive hotel in Dubai is perfect for those looking to relax to the fullest without compromising on location. Note that the Amwaj Rotana just underwent a renovation so do make sure to book yourself one of the newly renovated rooms.
All-inclusive resorts in Dubai’s Deira islands
The Deira district, home to the famous Dubai gold souk and the fragrant spice souk, is home to four artificial islands. These were meant to be part of another Palm Island but those plans were never realized. Nevertheless, the four islands that did get developed are now home to two relatively new all-inclusive hotels.
This hotel is perfect for families with small kids who come to Dubai to enjoy the weather, relax at the beach and go all out at the onsite water park. With a generous family pool, lazy river, cliff jumping points, water slides, a splash play area as well as a family lounge and movie nights at the beach, the Centara Mirage Beach Resort Dubai is a true paradise for little ones. It features 607 guest rooms, many of which are family rooms with bunk beds.
We stayed in this hotel right after it opened with our two tweens and they still loved the activities. Do note that breakfast and dinner can get pretty loud and busy with kids running around all over the place, but that’s to be expected in a hotel that specifically caters to families. We preferred the breakfast buffet served at the Sheesh restaurant on the top floor which had a much more tranquil atmosphere.
Right next to the aforementioned all-inclusive Dubai resort in this list, there’s the Riu Dubai. This hotel is just as family-friendly thanks to the family pool, kids’ pools, water park, playground, water slides and extensive entertainment program. Order an afternoon smoothie in one of the swim-up bars and spend the evening in the onsite Asian, Italian or Lebanese restaurant or enjoy the themed buffet.
All-inclusive resorts in Dubai’s Jebel-Ali district
If you’re looking to get away from it all, then Jebel-Ali is an excellent choice. It’s less than half an hour’s drive from Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) yet it feels worlds apart from the bustling heart of Dubai. The beachfront JA Resort is set amidst a tropical decor of gardens and is home to three luxurious hotels, an equestrian center, a golf academy, a sports center as well as a variety of pools and restaurants to choose from. It’s the perfect choice for a family-friendly Dubai getaway. Here’s an overview of the all-inclusive hotels at Dubai’s JA Resort.
JA Beach Hotel*****
All 235 rooms and suites of the JA Beach Hotel feature a private terrace or balcony overlooking the lush hotel gardens, the private marina or the Gulf shores. All offer easy access to the facilities at this particularly kid-friendly resort, including the family pool and the generous beach.
JA Palm Tree Court*****
The JA Palm Tree Court comprises 212 spacious suites, some of which offer almost direct access to the beach. The atmosphere is more private and exclusive compared to the aforementioned JA Beach Hotel. This resort features a Mediterranean-inspired decor in an airy and light design.
JA Lake View Hotel*****
The latest addition to the JA Resort is the JA Lake View Hotel. All 348 rooms and suites of this all-inclusive Dubai resort feature a balcony and are equipped with a voice-activated assistant. Take a dip in the split-level infinity pool with a swim-up bar overlooking the golf course. This hotel is located a bit further from the beach but a shuttle service is available.
