The Dubai Mall is the ultimate family entertainment destination with The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, the Olympic-sized Dubai Ice Rink, the children’s ‘edutainment’ concept Kidzania and a massive indoor cinema complex – just some of the ways to keep everyone busy.
Don’t miss the indoor fountain (one of the most photographed spots in the mall), or The Village, which features a retractable roof opened in the winter months to offer shoppers an outdoor experience. There is also direct access to the five-star Address Dubai Mall, ensuring a seamless shopping experience for hotel guests.

The new Zabeel extension adds almost 15,000sqm of lifestyle space, with an incredible array of art on display – all linked by a fully air-conditioned link bridge from The Dubai Mall.
