Whisk the family away on an all-inclusive holiday at JA The Resort, Jebel Ali Beach, Dubai, where you can throw caution to the wind and focus on having fun


Holidaying with kids isn’t always easy on the wallet – and if you don’t want to worry about the bill racking up during your stay then going all-inclusive means you can feel free to eat, drink and get active without blowing the budget. And if Dubai is on your radar, JA The Resort, Jebel Ali Beach, Dubai has you covered with its all-inclusive approach that unlocks the door to limitless fun.


Home to two five-star hotels – JA Palm Tree Court and JA Beach Hotel, with a combined total of 447 rooms and suites (not to mention JA Lake View Hotel which is set to open this year) – this much-loved family-friendly hideaway has earned a reputation as a top choice among those in the know.

Staying there will get you happily reacquainted with the simple way of life: spacious rooms with plush beds, a super location by the beach, lots of different places to eat, and activities on tap.

There are 16 places to eat and drink, offering everything from Pan-Asian to Italian and international fare. So whether you feel like dining under the stars, enjoying a side of drama with your dinner at the teppanyaki table, or sharing a freshly made pizza that’s straight out of the wood fired oven, your tummy won’t be left grumbling for long.


Your days are easily filled with all the great activities on offer, with something to suit all dispositions. Fall hook, line and sinker for deep-sea fishing, go galloping off on a horseback riding adventure, or soar above Dubai’s coastline by seaplane for a bird’s eye view of the emirate. Watersports such as kitesurfing, kayaking and banana boating call thrillseekers from their sunloungers while those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground can play a round at the 9-hole golf course, which presents a challenge for all skill levels.

As you’d expect for any family resort worth its salt, children take centre stage with no less than three kids’ clubs to keep little holidaymakers entertained, from four-month-old mini carpet cruisers to 16-year-old adventure seekers. And when they’re not splashing around in the two kids’ swimming pools, there are daily morning and evening activities every morning and evening to keep them on their toes.
