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.

Dubai Marina

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.

“Brilliant flat with stunning views in the heart of Dubai Marina!”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2015

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely flat. The pictures simply dont do it justice. It was a excellent base to explore Dubai and we had friendly, useful and smooth dealings with the company that manages Patrick's property. We made great use of the entertainer vouchers and are very grateful for Patrick's generosity in leaving these for his guests to use. We saved tons of money on eating out and activities as a result. I honestly can't think of anything they could have done to make our stay better. There were a lot of small touches that you dont normally find/get when you stay in rented flats. The breakfast pack in particular was so thoughtful as our flights arrived in the early hours of Saturday morning. We were grateful to have food at hand to feed a confused and hungry toddler (and adults too)! We would highly recommend your flat to anyone looking to stay in Dubai and would like to thank Patrick again for the making the whole process so easy, smooth and secure.

Thank you for leaving such a nice Review. The Entertainer Vouchers are a really great compliment and help your money to stretch further. So glad you got a good use out of them. Hope to see you again.

“Perfect stay”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2015

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Dubai Marina and thought Torch apartment 3705 was great - stunning views, spacious, clean and so convenient for strolling around the marina with it's numerous restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and shopping mall. Patrick couldn't have been more helpful and Erica from his property management team met us at 1am on our arrival from the UK and settled us into the flat. We were joined the following day by our son, daughter-in-law and baby granddaughter and the apartment was perfect for all of us. We used a couple of the Entertainer vouchers generously provided by Patrick at local restaurants which saved the family a considerable amount of money. A very thoughful gesture by Patrick. We have no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending this apartment and we intend using it again ourselves in the near future.

“Excellent location and very welcoming stay”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2015

We stayed at this apartment for 3 nights during the month of December. We arrived in the middle of the night but someone was on hand to help us in and orient us to the apartment. The "starter kit" (milk, eggs, bread, cereal, juice, etc) was quite welcome so that we did not have to look for groceries first thing in the morning. One of our luggage was delayed but Mr O'Neill's staff took care to receive our bag and placing it in our apartment so that we did not have to wait around for it. The location is excellent - from the 37th floor and the balcony you have an excellent view of the Dubai Marina and all the skyscrapers scattered around. Taxis are plentiful and if not, the concierge can assist with this. The stop for the Dubai Tram (with connections to the Metro) is close by. Wireless internet and local phone were appreciated amenities. Many of the Entertainment vouchers were already used when we arrived (being the end of the calendar year) but we definitely appreciated the efforts Mr O'Neill made in obtaining vouchers we wished for and having them delivered to us. The 90 minute Yellow Boats tour around sunset time is highly recommended! All in all, I highly recommend this 2 bedroom apartment for a comfortable stay in Dubai.

Thanks for the terrific Review. It is always worthwhile to ask me about Entertainer Vouchers - often I can help out. Hope to see you again.

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!.

“Well equipped apartment in ideal location”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

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”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2014

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.


Reviewed 3 Feb 2014

"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.

“Fantastic - awesome location”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2013

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.


Reviewed 22 May 2013

The apartment was amazing! It was in a perfect location and was very clean! When we arrived Patrick had organised milk, bread, eggs and cereal to be left in the fridge, which is just what we need after a long flight! The rooms were very big, could easily sleep 6 people, the views are brilliant! The location is perfect; just 2 mins walk to the marina which has over 400 bars and places to eat. I would definitely come back here! Thank you Patrick for a lovely stay!

Glad to be of service and many thanks for the great Review.

“A good deal, good location”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

This apartment is in a good location, and was a convenient place for my husband and I and his sister and wife to each have our own bedroom and bathroom, in addition to comfortable community space. We ate breakfast in the kitchen daily to save money, and it was great to do laundry. We had all the amenities needed (laundry, Internet, cable, phone, access the front desk staff). There is a small market downstairs, and a spinney's close by in addition to the many restaurants in the marina. The metro stop is about 10-15 minutes walk. The building is across the street from the Mariott, which we used as a complimentary drop off spot for a tour who would only drop us off at a hotel. There were taxis outside the building consistently. I would definitely recommend this property for an economical and comfortable stay in a city that can get pricey fast!
