The summer heat is just about upon us, so splash into summer and take a dip in one of
these ten fabulous swimming pools that you can benefit from with your Privilee Membership!
One of my favourite things about Privilee is that even on those super hot days, you can head
to a hotel for just a few hours in the morning to enjoy some time in the pool and leave before
lunchtime when the real heat sets in, and you never feel as though you’ve wasted any
money on a full day pool pass!
1. Palazzo Versace Hotel
Sipping on an Aperol Spritz whilst laying around the Capri Pool at the Palazzo
Versace Hotel, it’s easy to forget that you’re lounging by the Dubai Creek Harbour,
and not in the Italian Amalfi Coast. I absolutely love spending the day at the Palazzo Versace as it caters to the whole family. It has three beautiful swimming pools, La Piscina, Portofino and Capri as well as seven restaurants and bars (within which
Privilee Members receive a 25% discount!)
2. The Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah
The Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah has a Main Pool that the whole
family can enjoy, especially Mums and Dads with the swim-up pool bar! The hotel
also has a shaded kid’s pool surrounded by additional sun loungers so that parents
can lay back and watch the children play.
3. Cove Beach Dubai
A slice of adult-only heaven has arrived on Privilee! Cove Beach Dubai can be found
on Bluewaters Island and has three swimming pools available for Privilee Members
to enjoy every day of the week. Cove Beach hosts a range of events each day so you
can choose to party the day away, or relax and unwind, it’s totally up to you!
4. InterContinental Dubai Marina
Hidden amongst the concrete jungle with stunning views of the Dubai Marina, the
InterContinental Dubai Marina offers chilled vibes, cocktails and the comfiest
sunbeds – I don’t know what more you could want from a pool day! The pool is open
daily from 8am to 8pm and has a gym on the same floor, just in case you wanted to
have a quick workout before cooling off in the rooftop pool.
5. Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort
Another family friendly pool day is the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort. This Thai-
inspired hotel has a stunning 50 metre infinity pool with ample sun loungers
surrounding it. But the highlight of the hotel for me has to be the beautiful lagoon
winding throughout the resort.
The lagoon has a shallow sand bank which is the perfect place for little ones to sit
and play before diving into the lagoon for a swim. One of the best parts is a little
wooden boat that passes through the lagoon every few hours selling drinks – I like to
treat myself to a fresh coconut – but if you’re lucky, your little one may even be able
to have ride on it!
6. Melia Desert Palm
Melia Desert Palm is an oasis located a short drive out into the Dubai Desert. The
hotel has a beautiful infinity pool, with views spanning over the connected polo club. If you’re heading out that way you should definitely make sure to pop into the
Samana Spa for a massage before driving back to reality!
7. Fluid Beach Dubai
Fluid Beach Club can be found at Th8 Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah. It’s the perfect
place to chill with friends from day into night. This adult-only venue offers Privilee
Members and up to four guests 25% discount off F&B so you can soak in the sun, sip
champagne and stay for sunset all whilst saving money!
8. Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk
Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk is another great venue to visit as a family. The stunning
Soleil swimming pool has a great shaded kid’s pool attached with a splash pad for
them to enjoy. The pool can be accessed from the hotel’s sixth floor and offers a
great view of the Dubai Skyline.
9. Hyde Hotel Dubai
The rooftop pool at Hyde Hotel Dubai has views of the Dubai Skyline that are hard to
beat. This adult-only venue has super-chic décor, Burj Khalifa views and (I must say)
some of the comfiest sun beds I have experienced. The hotel has complimentary
valet parking and offers 20% discount off food, beverage and brunches across all
10. Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
Last, but by no means least, is the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah. This hotel
is one of my absolute favourites when I’m in need of some downtime. As soon as you
pull up to the front of the hotel and are greeted by the friendly valet team, you feel at
home. The hotel provides the feeling of both luxury and comfort with its five star
service and super comfy beach sun loungers.
The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah has a fabulous infinity pool that all of the
family can enjoy. Also, tucked around to the righthand side of the resort, hidden
amongst the palm trees, is an adult-only pool where you can really switch off and
enjoy the peace and quiet.
Living in Dubai we are so lucky to have so many beautiful hotels and resorts right
here on our doorstep. That’s why I am so thankful to have my Privilee Membership
which allows me to make the most of all they have to offer!
