La Mer and Al Seef open in Dubai

The opening of Dubai’s La Mer and Al Seef districts offer even more opportunities to play, dine and unwind. Soak in the sunshine vibes at La Mer, an inspirational destination in Jumeirah 1 with a seafresh theme – think palm trees, wooden signs, beach boardwalks and a carefully curated selection of boutique shops and dining concepts. Alternatively, spend the day exploring Al Seef, that brings a dash of modern glamour to the city’s cultural heart, Dubai Creek. Stretching across 1.8km of the Creek’s shoreline, Al Seef presents a stunning heritage area with old architecture, which then blends into more contemporary spaces, with plenty of homegrown boutiques and restaurants to try along the way.
