  • July 17, 2018

Are you finding it difficult to look for the best community to live in Dubai? Firstly, consider all the factors that will help you make your search easy. Your status as single or having a family, your workplace, your children’s school and of course your budget!

Most of the villa communities are gated, offering a good sense of security. Choosing a right community to live in is always a good idea due to the increase in traffic and other situations, though Dubai is not really that big a place. There is an ample number of established villa communities, such as Arabian Ranches, Jumeirah Village, Mirdif and more. However, there are a lot of new communities that have emerged recently, offering elegant new homes and in some cases, many affordable ones too.

Look at some of the most desirable areas to live in:

Arabian Ranches
As a well-established, residential gated community located on the Emirates Road, it comprises of numerous sizes and styles of villas and townhouses. The project includes a Golf Course, Dubai Polo, a community shopping centre and Jumeirah English Speaking School.

Springs, Lakes, and Meadows
Highly in demand by families and couples, there are plenty of gated communities featuring anything from 2-bedroom townhouses up to 6-bedroom opulent villas. You’ll find a community centre for shopping and a health club in these communities, as well as shared pools and recreation areas.

Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club – Dubai Land
Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club is one of the recent villa communities in the market having beautiful villas, a luxury equestrian development located in Dubai Land. You will find St. Regis-branded hotel, with an option of more than 150 Andalusian-style villas and luxury villas, polo club, state-of-the-art polo academy, riding school and excellent equestrian facilities, including 520 stables.

Jumeirah Village
There are townhouses and villas starting from 2 beds at reasonable prices. It has hassle-free access to Emirates and Al Khail Road and is about a 20-minute drive to Mall of the Emirates.

The Green Community
Still considered a little too far away by many, but the villas are exceptional and peaceful in this well designed gated community, with a number of services.

Mirdif is now a well-connected area, with shops, its own super mall, and schools. It is a more reasonable area for people looking to live in a villa with a lush green garden.

Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim
Ideal for families and couples, this area of Dubai is older, more established and can be quite beautiful and serene, once you get behind Jumeirah Beach Road.

Al Barsha
Once a desert paradise, it is now one of the more famous areas for expats, Al Barsha starts right behind the Mall of the Emirates and heads out towards Emirates Hills.
