Time for family fun with Yasmin Carey!

Yasmin Carey talks through her go-to Privilee venues to visit with her family.

The UAE’s weather is perfect for enjoying time outside. I’m a Mum to three very active boys so spending time in the sunshine burning their energy is always on my list of things to do! Privilee allows me to unlock absolute gems to keep them entertained. The kids play, splash and slide whilst I supervise and unwind! With the bonus of savings on food and drinks, Privilee makes dinner time easy too.

Here are my top Privilee spots to visit in Dubai…

Al Habtoor Polo Resort

I love Al Habtoor Polo Resort, firstly it's so chilled and relaxed here. It's great when we want to pop in somewhere close by to where we live just for an afternoon or few hours. Secondly, I love how secluded it is! Al Habtoor Polo Resort is located in Dubailand so it's a bit further outside of the centre of the city, which make it feel quieter than other resorts.

They have a large main swimming pool which has shallow areas and steps leading into it - great for my three as they can all swim (and jump!) about in this area of the pool. Another bonus is being surrounded by lots of greenery and plants - we really feel like we're on a little afternoon escape from the city!

Fairmont The Palm

This resort is great for families for so many reasons. Look forward to easy valet parking, an enclosed colourful splash pad area, and a fun-filled kids club. My son loves the climbing wall! There’s also a large family pool which we like to spend afternoons at. 

JA Beach Resort

This resort will make you feel like you’re not in the UAE! There’s lots of wildlife and greenery across the resort - my boys love this as they are big animal fans! JA Beach Resort has lots of swimming pools, a water park, a miniature golf area, a kids’ club and pony/horse riding (at an additional cost). There is something for everyone no matter their age!

Sofitel Dubai The Palm

This one is a firm family favourite! One of the highlights for us is their great restaurants… and ice cream! The resort has two big family pools, a kids' pool with two slides and a kids’ club. The pristine beach is great for us too. The boys love running around on the spacious stretch of sand. 

Raffles The Palm Dubai

We love this resort for so many reasons. They have a huge family pool with jacuzzi seats that the kids love, a shallow and shaded baby pool and a pirate play area. The beach is lovely and the team here are so accommodating! Privilee Members save 20% on food and drinks at Raffles The Palm Dubai - my boys love the poolside pizzas! 

These are just our top four venues - we have lots more on our go-to list! We love the ease and accessibility of Privilee venues! No need to pack up endless bags and towels to head to the beach, it’s so easy to check in to a Privilee venue and enjoy a private beach resort or a five-star pool.
