Five Places Where You Can Live in a Studio for Rent in Dubai

If you are thinking of moving to another country or are planning to stay within the United Arab Emirates (UAE), it may be time to look at the city of Dubai. 

If New York City is the place that never sleeps, then Dubai is the place that never naps. It is constantly bustling with activity. From the night life to fine dining experiences and beyond, Dubai has something for everyone. 

The people of Dubai are very diverse as well. It is a multicultural melting pot filled with people from all walks of life and from many different countries. In one night, you can talk to someone from another country, eat at a restaurant, talk to someone from the UAE, and go see a movie. The city is bustling with a lot of activity. 

If we have convinced you to get a studio for rent in Dubai, or any other apartment, here are the areas of Dubai that you can live in.

Downtown Dubai

Downtown Dubai is at the heart of the city. It is home to the world’s largest synchronized water fountain and the world’s largest tower, the Burj Khalifa. You can choose to get a smaller apartment near the mall in Downtown Dubai, or even get a studio for rent in the Burj Khalifa itself. 

The Burj Khalifa, like many other towers that are at least partially residential, has its share of perks to live in. It boasts a gym, swimming pool, sauna, and steam room among other benefits. Perhaps the most entertaining of all the benefits of living in the Burj Khalifa is that you will be living in the world’s tallest tower.

Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina, as its name reflects, is located near the sea. It is home to multiple towers, shopping, and a mall. Fine dining and other entertainment experiences await you when live in the Marina. Most of towers will have a balcony that will give you a view of the town, a view of Palm Jumeriah, or a view of the sea. In some cases, you will be able to see all three.

The towers at Dubai Marina boast several benefits as well. You can work out in a gym, swim in a pool, or relax in a steam room or sauna. Many of the towers will also have retail outlets on the first floor.

Palm Jumeirah

The Palm, as it is called affectionately by the residents of Dubai, is a man-made archipelago, or series of artificial islands. One of the world’s premiere architectural feats, you will be located right near the beaches and have beach access as well.

If you’d rather stay indoors, the buildings in Palm Jumeirah will also have the sauna, steam room, gym, and pool. If you’re going out, enjoy the range of fine dining and other entertainment experiences that the palm has to offer.

Jumeirah Beach Residence (JMR)

If you can’t get enough of the beach, you may want to live on it. These residences are exclusively located either on the beach or as close to beach as possible and have direct access to the beach as a bonus for living there. 

Living in JBR will demand that you love the outdoors and want to go on the beach as much as possible. If you are not an outdoors person, JBR is certainly not for you.

Sheik Zayed Road

If you would like to live on the busiest road in Dubai, Sheik Zayed Road is for you. Its massive six-lane highway connects the Road to the rest of Dubai. Entertainment options and fine dining experiences are very varied. 

You might thing that you need a car to live on Sheik Zayed Road; however, this is not true. In some cases, the apartments are located directly across from public transportation, so it will not be a problem to get anywhere without a car.


From the busiest road in the UAE, Sheik Zayed Road, to the place with the largest tower in the world, Downtown Dubai, you can live anywhere in Dubai. Each section of Dubai has its own unique personality. Though we’ve mentioned these areas of the city, there are many other sections. We wish you luck in finding the right place to live in the city for you when you get your studio for rent in Dubai.
