What to expect at Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club
Ideal for kids' and families
There are so many things about Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club that make it perfect for full family daycays or when you just need to entertain the kids for a few hours! As a Privilee member you receive complimentary access for infants and two children aged 5 - 17.
Firstly, the large shaded and shallow kids’ pool makes life so much easier and stress-free! The kids can splash around without you worrying about them being safe in the water or the sun!
As well as the kids’ pool, there are two outdoor play areas available, one of which is right next to the kiddie pool and the other is by the outdoor terrace at Sella (one of the restaurants at the club). This means the kids have somewhere to play whether you’re sunbathing or eating - win win!
Horse riding and pony petting!
We really appreciated the views as we arrived here! As you enter you’re surrounded by trees and greenery which comes as a pleasant change of scenery! The little ones also get excited looking out for horses as you drive past the paddocks.
We were thrilled to find out that kids can go on pony rides for just AED 35; they absolutely love the experience and it’s heartwarming to watch! Perfect footage to cheer the grandparents up back home!
Casual dining (with discounts!)
Head to Sella if you’re looking for comforting and delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant offers all-day dining; it’s perfect for breakfast with the family or an evening meal to catch up on everyone's day.
Again, this is a fab family venue - they have a great kids’ menu and there’s an outdoor play area, so you can enjoy food and drinks in peace whilst keeping an eye on them from the large outdoor terrace. Perfect for this time of year!
Privilee members get a 20% discount off their bill at three of the other restaurants at Dubai Polo club, including the Splash Pool Bar! We love tucking into fresh light bites around the pool!
On Tuesdays, there is a BBQ available at the Equestrian Grandstand which is lovely for laid back outdoor dining now we have cooler weather.
Watch the Polo!
Polo season is about to begin! You can find the calendar here. We absolutely LOVE sitting by the main polo field as the sun sets at the end of a day by the pool. The setting is so beautiful and the horses are just amazing to watch, it’s a truly memorable day out. One of our favourite things to do is enjoy a picnic on the grassy bank as we take in the action!
Relax and restore
The Spa at Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club is amazing if you’re looking to unwind in a tranquil setting, the calm and peaceful feeling you experience as you walk the club grounds is reflected in the spa.
As a Privilee member, you’ll get access to the spa facilities when you book any treatment, which you get an exclusive 20% discount on. We recommend treating yourself to ‘Sensory Indulgence’, a 60-minute Aromatherapy Massage, aka pure bliss!
