The attractively designed areas mimic the opulent taste of the pharaohs, with statues, stained glass, and intricate mosaics.

Treat the kids at the onsite entertainment center, including a round of glow-in-the-dark mini golf.

  • The mall is not very busy, you can however find good deals & offers there. The service was very good in the shops and restaurants. Distance from our hotel (Granf Hyatt) was very short and easily acces...  more »
  • Egypt-inspired décor, and appearance of the building is beautiful, but people peacefully has less. If you want luxury, Dubai traffic is good (there was a clock, such as Daytona in Japan is hard to come! ) Is recommended.

  • Older once high-end Dubai mall popular with locals and an expat crowd. Connected to the fabulous Raffles Dubai Hotel. Great F&B options at the Pyramids Spa.
  • Not the biggest malls in Dubai though - but definitely one of the last busiest - much loved by the local Emiratis and expats - decent options for eating out and activities for kids... Good for those who need to escape the hustle and bustle of the other bigger male in Dubai. Decor, for its age, is brilliant at this mall - themed on the Egyptian pyramids...
  • Revamped mall. Great decor. Photo ops. Fantastic restaurants. Next to Planet Hollywood. Good shopping.
  • Very upmarket mall. Less crowd so.you can shop at ease but don't expect any much offers or sale from this mall
  • If you want a quiet and not much crowded place to shop is good for you. I don't like the parking of this mall very tight and if one car want to park everybody is stuck till they do. Unique shops are there which you won't find on other malls.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
