Health Coach, Diego Carrete is used to being ‘on the go’ and working across the UAE, meeting clients and partners. This means finding suitable places to work from is a must! Below he shares how he utilizes Privilee whilst working around the city.
Over to Diego…
There is no doubt that the Pandemic has changed the concept of workplaces and how we view them, few people had the opportunity to work outside of an office before 2020 and were used to spending five days a week there.
As the world has changed, professionals are now very specific when it comes to establishing their work environment - ensuring it works for them and their lifestyle.
One of the most valuable things to me about Privilee is the food and drink discounts that come with the membership, meaning I can work from cafes, restaurants or even a pool without spending a small fortune on coffees, breakfast and lunch throughout the day.
Let me explain how I work remotely, successfully!
What really makes a location an ideal space to work from? Here is my take:
- A quiet and relaxing environment
- Inspiring scenery
- WiFi available for you to connect to - easily!
- Good food, and even more importantly, great coffee!
Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah
This is by far my favourite place to work from. Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah has a stunning terrace with ample seating available for you to work from, due to the size and space it’s also a great place for meetings.
When you want to take a break, relax and recharge your batteries, head downstairs and you will find a tranquil garden area to wander around.

The Westin Mina Seyahi
If you are Marina based, this is one of the best places to work from in my opinion, especially during the morning as it is quiet with plenty of shaded space to sit and focus. I usually grab breakfast or lunch here as the food options are great, Bounty Beets have a great menu catering to all diet types, and Privilee Members save 25%.
When I have finished work or need a break, I can go to the gorgeous beach for either a walk or just to relax in the sun. I often end my day like this when I work from The Westin!

The Palace Downtown
When I have meetings in Downtown, Palace Downtown is my number one location to meet clients and partners. I’ll usually stay to work afterwards - the magnificent Burj Khalifa views are second to none from the pool! If you live in the Downtown or DIFC area - it’s definitely worth a try.
The lounge is inspiring, luxurious and quiet - it’s a great option if you want to host an impressive meeting spot. This also makes it ideal for Zoom/online meetings as it’s spacious with few people around.
