Dubai Parks and Resorts is a one-stop-shop of wondrous adventure-filled entertainment that caters to the whole family. Whether you’re a thrill-seeking teen, a big-screen enthusiast or travelling with boisterous toddlers in tow, staying with Rove At The Park puts you within easy reach of some of the best water & amusement parks Dubai has to offer with shopping, beach and dining options aplenty.
Sat at the southern end of Dubai, you’re a swift 15-minute drive from the long-awaited Expo 2020 site! We’re 15 minutes away from Al Maktoum International Airport as well as the UAE’s integrated business hub of Jebel Ali Free Zone, for our Rovers here on business with a splash of pleasure. Whilst all this excitement might be hard to shy away from, you’ll always have Rove At The Park’s pool to #relax in, The Daily restaurant to #refuel for tasty breakfast lunch and dinner options and we’ll even throw in a late check-out / early check-in to maximising your trip.
Roving Around – How to Get to Dubai Theme Parks
Staying with Rove At The Park places you (conveniently) a 15 minute walk from the resort, but you might want to save your energy for screaming and jump on our free shuttle bus to the main entrance. Whilst inside, you will find internal taxi-carts to get you from each park entrance to the next and even stroller rental for the kids that desperately want to keep up with the bigger ones of you! We’ll also have a shuttle bus to whisk you away from the rides and off to Ibn Battuta Mall and JBR beach for exploring the rest of what Dubai has to offer.
The Dubai Metro will take you from end-to-end of the Emirate with views of Dubai’s architectural wonders and biggest tourist attractions – catch the sunset behind the majestic Burj Al Arab and look out for The Burj Khalifa on your way to the Dubai Mall. Interchange for the Dubai Tram at Dubai Marina and take a short, but scenic, route over the waterway to JBR Beach.
You will also find local RTA taxis dotted around for a more privatised journey – they charge by the meter, making prices fair and transparent. Don’t be surprised if they suddenly jump up in price, that’s likely to be an electronic toll bridge that you’ve just passed under. And there’s a couple of rideshare apps available for pre-booked mapped out journeys.
