Spending time in the UAE this summer? The temperature is high but don’t worry, there’s still plenty to do - especially with Privilee! From indoor pools and excellent fitness classes to exciting kids’ clubs and refreshing drinks at sundowner spots, there are plenty of ways to stay cool and beat the heat.
We've got you covered with our top picks for indoor activities to escape the rising temperatures this summer.
Top-tier gyms and fitness classes
Dedicate your summer to living a healthy lifestyle by visiting one of Privilee’s many fitness clubs or gyms! Stay active with access to indoor pools, gyms, fitness classes and squash courts.
Swim for fun or for fitness at indoor lap pools that are available at a selection of Privilee venues across the UAE, Members love the lap pool at FitRepublik (which is Olympic-size!). Lap pools can also be found in selected Fitness First locations for a refreshing dip before or after your workout. For a slightly more unique experience, head to Fly High Fitness to cool off in their plunge pool and get a workout in at the same time. The benefits of cold water are amazing for muscle recovery!
If you’re looking to slow down and enjoy the quieter pace of life during summer, try out the relaxing and rejuvenating yoga classes at Yoga Ashram. Clear your mind and increase your focus through meditation and mindfulness classes for all levels - or switch off and find your zen in Singing Bowl Meditation classes.
Many venues also allow Privilee Members access to their squash courts, complimentary, including locations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ajman. Challenge yourself and your friends to a game of squash in a fully air-conditioned court. This activity is great for those who like socialising whilst increasing their fitness levels!
With live sports, bands and a regular DJ the five-hour brunch at McGettigan's Factory - The Palm, Hilton Dubai The Palm is not to be missed!
