Dubai Creek Harbour has unveiled Creek Marina, a city-harbour getaway in the heart of Creek Island Dubai, the residential and leisure district of the six sq km mega-development.

The waterfront destination will be home to residences, sweeping landscaped parkland, gourmet restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues, a statement said.

It added that Creek Marina is set to open in December, as preparations are ongoing to welcome the first residents in Dubai Creek Harbour in early 2019.

Creek Marina will also be home to the Vida Harbour Point, a 286-room upscale lifestyle hotel similar to harbour hotels in cities such as Singapore and Shanghai, and is scheduled to open in 2019.

With its oyster design, a throwback to the city’s rich pearling history, Creek Marina will have a capacity of over 81 single- and double-berths and will feature a dedicated world-class yacht club with an array of shopping and dining outlets.

Facilities such as fuelling services, upgraded power outlets and pedestal units will ensure smooth sailing for all throughout the year, the statement said.

Creek Marina will also offer a selection of high-end retail, dining and leisure venues with a promenade featuring trendy cafes, restaurants, fashion outlets and street-food vendors.

An interactive fountain and world-class art installations as well as over 1,500 parking spaces will also be included.
