The result of meticulous planning by world-class architects and landscaping artists, Creek Island Dubai is a one-of-a-kind waterfront destination will bring lavish island living to over 33,500 residents. Set against the backdrop of Dubai’s awe-inspiring skyline and the natural beauty of the historic creek, Creek Island Dubai will deliver a never-before waterfront lifestyle in the heart of the city, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the iconic Bur Khalifa, as well as overlooking the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, home to rich mangroves and migratory birds including the pink flamingos.
The vibrant Creek Marina will set the pace for the Creek Island Dubai lifestyle, with diverse retail, dining and leisure venues. In addition to yachting facilities, complete with a modern yacht club, three hotels, a bustling promenade, landscaped pedestrian walkways, and art installations will greet residents and visitors. To be home to many of the city’s most excellent parks, gourmet restaurants, cafés and world-class entertainment venues, Creek Island Dubai promises a haven of luxury waterfront living.

Also next-door is Dubai Square, the new metropolis that is set to usher in a new era in retail and leisure.
The first homes to be delivered in Creek Island Dubai are in Dubai Creek Residences, a six-tower residential development with only 872 homes. In fact, the very-first residential launch in the master-development, Dubai Creek Residences captures the true essence of a vibrant harbour and the Creek Marina lifestyle, and is nestled between the yacht club, pools, a world-class marina and a boulevard glowing with activity.
