But those of us who aren’t sitting on a fortune can still enjoy looking at these mind-blowing properties. Whether you are looking for a technological wonderland or some old world luxury, there is something here to spark your interest.
Join us for a tour of five of the most over-the-top apartments in Dubai.
Emirates Crown penthouse, Dubai Marina
Cost: AED 21.5 million
Make yourself comfortable in this luxurious penthouse with marble floors, cinema room, private Jacuzzi, and walk-in closets for each of the four bedrooms. You also get double sinks in the massive kitchen island.
The views are of the Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and the sea beyond. Enjoy the scenery through enormous floor to ceiling windows or step out onto your private balcony.
Amenities in the Emirates Crown building include a gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, kids club, and private storage. The building has 63 floors and, if you can’t swing the penthouse, there are other apartments with 2-5 bedrooms.
Sky Gardens duplex penthouse, DIFC
Cost: Provided on application
This ritzy penthouse is so rich that you won’t even learn the price until you apply to buy it. With sweeping views of Sheikh Zayed Road and a peek at the sea, you’ll never get bored of gazing out of the huge picture windows.
But the inside offers an incredible sensory experience as well. The futuristic décor includes mother of pearl walls, a massive humidor for cigars, and a gravity-defying circular glass staircase. The ventilation system is actually fitted with a unique Acqua di Parma scent designed specifically for this unit.
There are five bedrooms with walk-in closets, lush carpeted floors, and smart home technology. The building offers reception service, concierge service, two allocated parking spots, and access to a communal gymnasium, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, and barbeque area.
Marina Quays penthouse, Dubai Marina
Cost: AED 2.5 million
The stunning penthouse at Marina Quays has a lot to offer inside, but the most coveted part is outside on the expansive terrace. Whether entertaining friends or enjoying a quiet cup of coffee, you’ll never tire of the marina and cityscape views.
But speaking of entertaining, the former maid’s room in this penthouse has been converted into a cozy and welcoming bar area with exposed brick walls. You and your guests may also enjoy the building’s communal steam room, sauna, and gym.
Inside your penthouse, you’ll find warm wooden flooring and a host of upscale features, including a private Jacuzzi. When it’s time to kick back, there is a massive retractable movie screen. With two bedrooms, it’s a perfect couple’s retreat.
Azure Tower Duplex, Dubai Marina
Cost: AED 4.3 million
Full marina views are just the start with this luxurious property. The architecture is clean and modern, done in a neutral beige and white palette so as to keep focus on the stunning views beyond. However, the coffered ceiling adds a bit of flair.
Wooden flooring throughout grounds the space. The huge open kitchen is a cook’s dream, and with three bedrooms, it’s ideal for a family. All bedrooms are on the upper floor of this unit, allowing for a nice separation between entertaining and resting.
Four incredible balconies provide four distinct views and mean that everyone in the home can enjoy a private moment as needed. However, with enormous floor to ceiling windows, you don’t necessarily have to go outside to enjoy the view.
Amenities include two dedicated parking spaces and a communal gym.
Burj Khalifa apartment, Downtown Dubai
Cost: AED 5.4 million
No list of the most incredible apartments in Dubai would be complete without mentioning the Burj Khalifa. It is the world’s tallest building, a miracle of modern engineering. It contains 900 apartments – 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom suites – and is quite possibly the most exclusive address in the world.
Each unit is replete with luxury finishes, and amenities shared by the residents include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tubs, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a gourmet market, a library, and a communal meeting space. Tennis courts frame this incredible building, and there is even a cigar club, if you’re into that sort of thing.
The views available from Burj Khalifa apartments are unsurprisingly stunning and encompass most of the city and the sea beyond. Enjoy your view from floor-to-ceiling windows at home, or venture up to the 124th floor viewing deck.
