Dubai land


Dubailand is a massive residential development and hotspot by Dubai Properties. It was initially proposed as a 2 billion sq. ft. plan encompassing all residential, commercial and entertainment components as expected from any real estate project in Dubai. Today, Dubailand sprawls across 3 million sq. ft., divided into several districts including Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club, Dubailand Oasis, Layan, Majan, Falcon City of Wonders, Living Legends, Villanova, Rukan, Tiger Woods and Al Waha. The community has a lot to offer as development is in process for many other multi-billion dirham projects like DAMAC Hills. It won’t be wrong to say that Dubailand is a city within Dubai, home to a theme park, polo club, hotels and a wide range of accommodation plans.

The Dubailand project was launched by Tatweer in October 2003. It was planned to feature six themed worlds within the residential communities and attractions. The project was then taken over by Dubai Properties Group and has since been divided into individual projects, some of which are not considered part of Dubailand and are more popular by their own names. A few of these projects which were supposed to be part of the original plan include Dubai Sports City, Dubai Motor City, Mudon and Arabian Ranches.

This expansive community is located just off Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311), and many sub-communities are in different stages of completion and maturity. This leads to Dubailand becoming one of Dubai’s most popular areas, as seen in the 2020 Dubai Real Estate Market Report by Bayut. Also, as a freehold district, Dubailand emerged as the most popular area with affordable villas on offer. Interested investors can consider Living Legends, one of the top communities to buy properties in Dubailand.



Dubailand might not be the best place for public transport users, there is no metro stations area. However, the feeder bus 30 shuttles from several points at Skycourts Towers, Windsor Residence and from Liwan. Other bus stations close by would be the designated stop for Global Village connecting to the Union metro station in Deira and bus stops in Silicon Oasis. Those living in Dubailand rely on taxis (booked through the RTA app) or online taxi services such as Uber and Careem.



Nurseries in the area are a bit hard to find, there is the Kids Zone Nursery in The Villa community and a Chubby Cheeks Nursery in Skycourts Tower C. For Al Waha and Layan residents there is the Step by Step Nursery as well. However, for more options, residents will have to turn to the nurseries in the nearby Dubai Silicon Oasis community.

For older children, there are many new schools in the area, especially as the district keeps growing and developing into a fully fledged community. One of the new schools is The Aquila School, opened in September 2018 located near the SkyCourts Towers. It follows the UK curriculum from primary (FS1) till middle school (Year 6). In the Layan community, there is the Fairgreen International School, it offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) system from pre-primary to Year 8. This option is also close to those residing in the Al Waha area. Moreover, there is a new school opening for the Al Waha community residents in September 2019. The GEMS School of Digital Futures will be a fully inclusive option, it offers the UK curriculum for the full 13 years of schooling.



If you are wondering what it’s like living in Dubailand, consider that the area has rapidly evolved into a residential, commercial and entertainment hub. While there might not be as much options for public transport unlike the mainland, the community has a plethora of modern lifestyle amenities within. So, residents hardly need to go anywhere else.


As the project keeps developing, many residential, commercial and entertainment projects are added to the plan and made available to the market. Likewise, many shopping retreats are already operating in Dubailand and a number of new ones are yet to come. Residents also have access to a number of popular malls in the neighbourhood such as Dragon Mart and the evergreen, most favourite Dubai Mall.


Dubai residents do love visiting the beach, sadly there is no beach within Dubailand. The closest to Dubailand residents is the famous Jumeirah Beach, a 30-minute drive away. It offers tons of activities for both adults and kids to enjoy. There are walking tracks, playgrounds and outdoor gym equipment to use.
