About History Culture Tile Mosaic Mobile - One&Only The Palm, Dubai, Dubai


Ancient traditions and a reverence for nature.

"Marhaba." Welcome to Dubai.

Whilst archeological discoveries trace the history of Dubai to prehistoric times, it has only been within the last 50 years, when oil was discovered here in 1966, that Dubai became the intriguing metropolis that it is today; a place where revered Bedouin traditions and ancient souks harmoniously coexist alongside dazzling skyscrapers and the world's largest malls.

It’s hard to imagine that Dubai was once a fishing village reliant on the harvest of the sea, boat-building and pearling. With an interest in trade routes, Portuguese explorers arrived in the 16th century, and in the early 1800s the British negotiated maritime truces with local leaders, which is why the area now known as the U.A.E. was once called the Trucial Coast.

In 1833, Maktoum Bin Butti led a Bani Yas tribe from the Liwa Oasis, the southernmost Bedouin settlements in Abu Dhabi, to settle on the shores of Dubai and declare the town’s independence from Abu Dhabi. Interestingly, the Maktoum family still rules the emirate today. Throughout the 19th century, Dubai became the Gulf’s major port, with pearling the foundation of the city’s prosperity.

It was the discovery of oil in Dubai’s Fateh Oil field in the 1960s that set Dubai on a fast-track to exceptional growth as a major world hub of finance, architecture and hospitality. With a population of about 2.4 million, Dubai is the second largest member of the U.A.E., and the country’s most important port and commercial centre. In keeping with the welcoming spirit of its Bedouin heritage, Dubai today extends a warm "Marhaba", a welcome, to both leisure and business travellers, offering facilities of the highest international standard combined with the charm and adventure of the Middle East, an exceptional blend of modern city and desert.
