Emirates Living guide

Find out the basics about living in the Emirates Living district

Emirates Living

What’s the area like?
Incorporating The Springs, Meadows, The Lakes and Emirates Hills, the quiet streets and green spaces make this one of Dubai’s most family friendly areas.

Amenities
Great for families – there are schools, community centres and even a skateboard park. The Lakes Club and the excellent Nineteen restaurant at the Montgomerie Golf Club are the only forms of nightlife.

Best for
Families – with a fair bit of dosh.

Pros
The quiet streets and green spaces are perfect for people seeking refuge from the city. A big plus is that the Municipality’s ‘one family one villa’ rule doesn’t apply to gated communities – for now at any rate.

Cons
A new multiple lane highway is currently being constructed through the middle – bound to disturb the peace.
Average cost of a two-bed villa in Emirates Living: To rent Dhs100-140,000. To buy Dhs1.6million.
