The Emirate of Dubai region

Dubai today is a world-famous tourist landmark, attracting throngs of visitors from around the world. Its popularity as a holiday destination has surged in recent years, a testament to the success of the vision of the local government, who have invested heavily in turning Dubai into the tourist paradise it is today. Dubai benefits from a favourable climate, with a temperature that rarely falls below 15 C (59 F).

While summers can be hot and dry, with an average high of 40 C (104 F), winters are warm, with an average high of 23 C (73 F). Allied with pristine and well-maintained beaches, the weather and natural environment is reason enough to visit. However, it is arguably Dubai's man-made constructions which inspire most excitement. Dubai continues to challenge architectural convention, and has recently completed the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, which stands at an astonishing 828 metres.

Other examples of pioneering developments including the Palm Islands, which are three major commercial and residential infrastructures in the shape of palm trees. The islands will consist of 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach villas, apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, hopping malls, sports facilities and health spas; they are eagerly anticipated.

For the discerning shopper looking for a Dubai deal, Dubai is heaven on earth. Known as the “shopping capital of the Middle East", it is home to the world’s largest shopping mall, the “Dubai Mall". This is the crowning glory in a group of around 70 fully air-conditioned malls in Dubai, which attract visitors from all around. Dubai is also known as the “City of Gold”; the Gold Souq, located in Deira, has up to 250 dedicated gold retail shops. The younger generations are not short of amusement on their Dubai holidays either; there are a number of theme parks located all across Dubai; notable examples include the famous Wild Wadi Water Park, located on Jumeriah Beach Road, and the world's largest indoor skiing arena, SkiDubai, which proves that with a little innovation, its possible to bring an authentic artic winter ski experience to hot, sunny Dubai.

International and Arabic food is available everywhere when you’re on a Dubai holiday, from small diners to hotels. All the major fast food franchises are present in Dubai and from American to Chinese to Indian; Dubai caters to everyone’s needs. With large investment pumped into transport, Dubai has become an accessible city, with multi-lane motorways, a bus service with 140 routes and an extensive taxi system (which in Dubai is the most frequent used means of transport).

The Dubai Metro is a state of the art, fully automated metro network running throughout the city. It runs both over ground and underground, and has carried 10 million passengers since opening in September 2009. For international visitors, Dubai is a well-connected travel hub, with many travel options and direct routes available from most of the world's major cities. Its outstanding airport has a constant flow of inbound/outbound flights and is one of the busiest airports in the world, serving 101 destinations in 61 countries across six continents - making Dubai very accessible from anywhere in the world.

On a holiday in Dubai, you will discover a unique mix of old and new extremes; a modern, ever-expanding metropolis which is home to an indigenous culture steeped in history and long-observed traditions. It is a truly mesmerising blend of history and modernity, sure to captivate any traveller.

Marina Walk

Trendy Dubai Marina offers a mesmerising blend of urban living allied with beach-front activities. Luxury yachts bob in the calm waters whilst al fresco dining is the order of the day. Within a short walk from your apartment, there are over a dozen restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, including Thai,Indian,Persian,Italian,Japanese and Lebanese.

*Spinneys Super Market is Located in the next building to Torch Tower, on the ground floor, facing the Marina Walk.

*Carrefour Express is located 3 minutes walk away from Torch Tower.

*Dubai Marina Mall has 160 retail outlets including Waitrose and a Deluxe Cinema.

*The Dubai Marina metro is nearby, making it easy to visit many of Dubai's places of interest.

Estuve 14 días con mi hija en este hermoso departamento, si bien sabia por las fotos y comentarios que era muy lindo, estar ahi fue un sueño, comodo, muy bien equipado, con todo lo que se necesita y mas para nuestra estadia, pero lo que si es inolvidable e inmejorable, es la vista!!!!!!, todos los ambientes tienen una increíble vista a Dubai Marina!!!Una maravilla!!!. En cuanto a la atención recibida fue fantástica, llegamos tarde, a medianoche, nos recibió Edelyn, la encargada, y teníamos ya en el departamento alimentos en la heladera, artículos personales en los toilettes, y mas detalles que no pensábamos recibir. Agradezco al Sr. Patrick toda la atención recibida antes,durante y después de nuestro viaje. Sin duda volveremos a Dubai y sin duda estaremos nuevamente en este departamento, en THE TORCH!.

Thank you for the great Review and mentioning by name some of the local places of interest. Some of these are very new and even I was not aware of them. The area is excellent and continues to get even better! Hope to see you again.

"Well equipped apartment in ideal location"

We really cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay, including a cot and highchair, which was great for us. You can walk straight out of the building and find supermarkets, shops, restaurants, playgrounds, and just about anything else you would want. In terms of getting around Dubai, it was simple to hail a taxi outside the building. The owner and staff were a pleasure to deal with and the process could not have been simpler. If you're looking for a good base for a family in Dubai, you've found it!

"Great apartment in superb Dubai location"

Very much enjoyed our stay at the Torch. The location of the apartment is ideal - right in the Dubai Marina area and within easy walking distance to restaurants, supermarkets, the public beach and the Metro station. Perfect for families.
Booking process was easy and the property managers in Dubai were excellent. They even acted as a concierge service and assisted me with transportation.
The apartment was well equiped for a family. Free wifi was available together with Entertainment vouchers which saved us some money at some of the many tourist attractions.
The pool and sun deck are nice and there was also a gym available.
Best of all were the views from the apartment. Simply stunning!
Only a couple of small negatives - the lifts were under repair, so sometimes there was a fair wait and the pool was closed for a couple of days due to glass in the pool.
I would definately recommend this apartment.

"Wow!" That's what we all said when we walked in and saw the view. This apartment has the most amazing view of Dubai Marina from almost every room. At night it is just spectacular. Very well positioned, close to shops, restaurants, bars and the Metro.
Patrick, the owner, was extremely professional and easy to deal with from the very first email. We greatly appreciated the breakfast and bathroom supplies he left for us. He also left some Entertainment Books which were great for saving a few dollars on different restaurants and activities.
The apartment is located in a very modern tower block with concierge and a wonderful housekeeper named Evelyn who is able to organise any additional needs.

Thank you for your great Review. The Entertainer Voucher Books (Family & Fine Dining) are a great bonus - they can really help your budget stretch and afford for some extra luxury. The books contain hundreds of buy one get one free discount vouchers for casual dining restaurants, cafes and nightspots, informal dining and take-away, sports and pleasure and leisure activities plus Dubai's best restaurants (including many restaurants in top 5 Star Hotels). Hope to see you again.

"Spacious, clean and views!"

Our family of five had a great stay here for four nights. We were on an early flight but were allowed into the apartment as soon as we arrived which we really appreciated! Having some supplies there … More

Thank you for your nice review. My property manager is always ready to go the extra mile to accommodate my guests. Hope to see you soon again.

"Fantastic - awesome location"

We received an excellent welcome from the ladies looking after the apartment. We arrived in Dubai at 5.00am, finally arrived at the apartment at 7.00am to what we thought was only to drop our luggage as we were not checking in until 3.00pm that day. We were shown up to the apartment, they had the pull out couch made up in a bed as they thought we would be tired - which we were very much so. This enabled us to have a couple of hours sleep before we got going for the day. This was absolutely superb and not expected, but made all the difference to us for the day. Top class ladies. Thank you.

The view - awesome! Supermarket downstairs - great! 10-15 minute walk to metro - very handy. Family swam in complex pool, 15-20 minutes walk to beach for swim and plenty of places to eat out in walking distance from apartment if you do not feel like making meals for yourself..

If we go back to Dubai we will be definitely booking in again.
Many thankyous.

The location is truly one of great pluses of this apartment and building. There is so much on your doorstep and in the nearby area. The whole atmosphere and ambience of the Marina area really adds to the holiday experience. Glad you a great holiday and many thanks for leaving a Review.
