Al Garhoud area of Dubai commonly known as simply Garhoud is a smart mix of residential and commercial real estate units located on the border of "two worlds", the Old and New Dubai,having incorporated all the best of both. Most popular and oldest hotels in Dubai such as Al Bustan Rotana, Le Méridien Dubai, Millennium Airport Hotel stand here side by side with newer hospitality magnets like Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.
Moving over Garhoud Bridge connecting two emirates, Dubai and Sharjah, will lead you to this old, but quite charming area of Dubai, located between major neighboring entertainment centers Deira City Centre and Dubai Festival City. To improve the transport situation in the area Dubai authorities have constructed two additional interchanges on the way from Bur Dubai to Deira/Garhoud side (Business Bay Crossing and the Floating Bridge). Just a few kilometers away from the Dubai International Airport location gives Gahoud an important advantage in terms of investment in real estate with high possible ROI due to higher rents and great demand from tenants. The area has its own GGICO Metro Station, while a developed bus network allows easy access to areas of Jebel Ali, Bur Dubai, Deira and Mirdif.
As in any Old Town urban area, in Garhoud you’ll always find enough places to go to and well developed facilities at place to satisfy all your needs. A number of different recreation, sports and entertainment units in Garhoud make living here a comfortable experience. The first in the list of the district’s main attractions is Dubai Tennis Stadium hosting Dubai Duty Free Open Tennis Championships from February to March, as well as other major events, concerts, etc.
