Nakheel Mall opened in November 2019 in the heart of Dubai’s world-famous Palm Jumeirah, providing on-the-doorstep convenience for the island’s residents, a new destination for people living elsewhere in the UAE and a stunning new attraction for tourists.

The AED1.2 billion shopping and dining destination features 300 shops, restaurants, services and leisure attractions across five retail levels, as well as a three-level basement car park for 4,000 vehicles.  The mall has its own Palm Monorail station, and pedestrian access from Al Ittihad Park and nearby residences.

Nakheel Mall is also the access point for The View at The Palm, a public observatory perched on the top of the neighbouring Palm Tower, 230 metres above the island.  The View will open later this year, providing 360 degree views of Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and Dubai’s world-famous landmarks.

Nakheel Mall’s standard operational hours are 10am to 10pm on weekdays, and 1 am to 12midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
