New harbour development underway at Dubai Creek

There will be a tonne of shops, restaurants and residences when the development opens in December

Dubai Creek Harbour

There’s a new development underway in Dubai Creek Harbour and it looks set to be something special.

The 6 sq km mega-development in the heart of Creek Island Dubai will be a luxury city harbour getaway with residences, sweeping landscaped parkland, restaurants and cafés and entertainment venues.

The destination, which is designed to resemble an oyster in homage to the city’s pearling history, is set to open in December, with the first residents moving in in early 2019.

Creek Marina will also be home to a swanky hotel, Vida Harbour Point, a 286-room hotel also scheduled to open in 2019, rivalling similar harbour hotels in cities like Singapore and Shanghai.

The marina itself will have the capacity of more than 81 single and double berths and will feature a dedicated world-class yacht club with a load of shops and restaurants.

There’ll also be a promenade with even more shops and street food vendors, as well as an interactive fountain and world-class art installations to get our culture hats on.

If you can’t wait for your dose of history, then you also might be interested in the new pharaonic restaurant in Al Seef.

KHOFO has opened its doors and it’s more than fitting of Egyptian royalty. The restaurant is spread across 7,500 square metres with stately columns, hieroglyphic murals and waiters dressed up as the ancient pharaohs themselves.

We can’t wait to venture back in time.
