In pictures: New mega Nakheel Mall opens in Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah

The Dhs1.2bn shopping destination opens on Thursday, November 28



The Dhs1.2bn Nakheel Mall on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah brings a new level of shopping, dining and entertainment to the emirate.

Spread across five levels, the new destination features more than 300 shops, restaurants, entertainment outlets and services.

Those include a 60,000 sq ft, 15-screen Vox Cinemas complex, a MODO department store, Depachika Food Hall, a Waitrose supermarket, H&M, Trampo Extreme, Fabyland, Dubai London Clinic and Fitness First.

Offering 1.1 million sqft of leasable area, the mall will also feature two fountains and two waterfalls plunging 65ft into the mall.

The centrepiece of the complex is a 25 metre high crystal dome, the location of The Palm Monorail station. Mall visitors can get free Monorail rides for three months after the opening.

Nakheel Mall is also the access point for The View at The Palm, a public observatory on the top of The Palm Tower, 230 metres above the island. The View will open in 2020.

Nakheel Mall offers direct pedestrian access via Al Ittihad Park and Marina Residences. The mall will also have 4,000 parking spaces.

Omar Khoory, managing director, Nakheel Malls, said: “Nakheel Mall combines first class retail facilities with unique attractions at one of the world’s most famous landmarks, Palm Jumeirah.  It is the ultimate destination for new concepts in shopping, dining, entertainment and leisure, providing on-the-doorstep convenience for the Palm’s 78,000 residents, and a stunning new attraction for the millions of tourists who visit the UAE each year.

“We look forward to celebrating the arrival of this vibrant new destination as Dubai’s busiest time of year gets underway, with the National Day weekend, Festive Season, New Year and Dubai Shopping Festival among the many seasonal events over the next few months.”

Live entertainment, promotions and activities are scheduled to take place at Nakheel Mall over the National Day weekend, with prizes worth Dhs1m – including a brand-new Maserati – on offer for every Dhs250 spent between November 28 and December 7.
