Dubai Marina Yacht Club offers not only wonderful dining for visitors, but also charter services on board the luxurious Athena DubaiBy Jade Ling
While you are probably a member of your local yacht club back home, we recommend a visit to Dubai Marina Yacht Club while you are in Dubai. This is an award-winning yacht club, with great dining options, a marine shopping arcade, international yacht sales and brokers’ offices, a ship chandlery, nautical gifts store, a yachting fashion boutique, and charter yachts. Fun activities throughout the year make this an interesting destination, and an unmissable experience along with the usual sightseeing in the UAE.
Just last year, Dubai Marina Yacht Club was voted ‘Best New Asian Marina/Yacht Club’ at the Asia Boating Awards. And this year, it received the “Innovation and Excellence” accolade at The World of Yachts Recognition Awards. It’s not difficult to understand why this yacht club is so popular amongst both members and visitors. The DMYC gives yacht owners a choice of berths to suit their preferences. The club’s superb location and culinary promotions are great for tourists like you.
DMYC is situated in the Dubai Marina area, which has not only the largest man-made marina in the world, but also an exclusive development with a 3.5-kilometre canal, skyscraper residences and hotel resorts. Accommodation options in this area are excellent, with hotels such as The Address Dubai Marina, Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa Dubai, Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort & Towers, Grosvenor House and The Ritz-Carlton Dubai, which are all located here. If you want to explore gourmet options outside your hotel, why not head to Dubai Marina Yacht Club? Try its signature seafood restaurant Aquara, which offers an Asian fusion menu and a Friday brunch that shouldn't be missed. If you prefer a more informal setting, then 25°55° is a venue where you can enjoy light meals, or order bespoke hampers and lunch packs to take away. As the day winds down, take in the beautiful view of the Dubai Marina canal and catch up on the game scores at the 25°55° Sports Lounge.
For Luxos readers, we suggest chartering the Athena Dubai. This is a fully-staffed 13-metre yacht with a spacious interior and exterior decks on two levels. You can invite 10 of your friends for stylish cocktails, and all details of hospitality are seamlessly provided by the Athena's skipper and crew. The charter can be tailored to your requirements, so you can cruise the Marina and Gulf in style. After your visit to Dubai Marina Yacht Club, take a stroll along Marina Walk, go shopping at Marina Mall or visit Park Island.
