Of course, even in 1998, Dubai in general and Jumeirah Beach in particular did have quite a reputation. One could spend quite relaxing times there, despite 40+ Celsius, thanks to last but not least an excellent pool bar. However, compared to today’s completion state, this picture from not even two decades ago shows an almost completely different place.

Even as a non-German (progress works slightly slower, over here) you might want to take a StreetView ride on «The Walk», direction south-west, for a comparison.

I suppose that this view from the hotel room to the land-side might look slightly different today as well.
