    Marsa Al Arab thread has been moved to resortX:

  2. How far away will it be from the Burj al Arab and JBH?

    The project is not canceled they’re just going to relocate the project a little bit further from the previous location, it will stay in the same area somewhere close to the Burj Al Arab.

    So what will be with Wild Wadi? Will the old one stay? What about some residential possibilities that were planned?

    It seems that Marsa Al Arab has essentially been cancelled. Based on a new scale model that was unveiled today and concept art, the peninsula that was going to be home to the new Wild Wadi Waterpark, Marine Life Park, Pearl Museum, and Cirque Du Soleil show has now been replaced with a hotel that sticks out into the water and a new, larger marina. The peninsula that would have been built on the other side of Burj Al Arab that was going to have private homes is nonexistent.

  6. Staying again at JBH in May 2019 and had a mail today to say the marina will full close in October 2018 and works on the new islands will start at the same time onwards.

    Looks like its moving forward.

  7. I hope they tweak the designs. The residential island is nice, but the waterpark one, along with the new square buidlings right next to Burj Al Arab are out of place and kitsch in an overall very nice existing area.

  8. I recently stayed in Dubai and visited Madinat Jumeirah.
    I heard from some managers there that the whole project Marsa Al Arab is on hold for years to come and it will not be ready at all for 2020!

    I think that they need at least 1-2 years to build the islands alone without any buildings on it! It is with all major projects in Dubai, they announce it, and then nothing happens for a while - it will come but not in 2020, I would say sometime after 2022.

  10. Anyone got any more recent photos of the development progress?

    Looking at the plans, the proposed development on the current Wild Wadi site looks out of place and too big if you ask me. It will overshadow the pool area at JBH and potentially obstruct views from the JBH rooms nearest WW.
