Stay cool!

Looking to conquer the scorching temperatures and make the most of your time in the capital? Don’t sweat it! Privilee Member, Hayley, has got you covered with her guide to beating the heat in this desert oasis. 

From indoor adventures for the family to refreshing pool days, here are her tips on where to go this summer to enjoy Abu Dhabi to the fullest. 

Cool off at The WB Abu Dhabi Yas Island

You can’t go wrong with a daycation, especially at this world-famous hotel, full of character! With plenty of kids’ activities at The WB Abu Dhabi Yas Island, your little ones are guaranteed non-stop fun. What better way to beat the heat than diving into an enormous pool (featuring a movie screen to watch cartoons!), paddling in the kids’ pool and jumping through thrilling splash pads? And when it’s time for a break, simply swim up to the pool bar for ice-cold drinks and refreshments or head to Sidekicks for a tasty lunch, all with 20% off. Don’t forget to look out for characters roaming around - it’s always a bonus bumping into Bugs Bunny when you visit!  

Make a splash at Erth Abu Dhabi

Looking for a relaxing retreat? Look no further! Erth Abu Dhabi is waiting for you, with sun loungers immersed in water, a swim-up pool bar and shaded cabanas - there are so many ways to keep the heat at bay at this Instagrammable location! My personal favourite is cooling off at the swim-up bar while sipping on a homemade smoothie. 

Enjoy burgers and bowling at Central Abu Dhabi! 

Grab the family for an afternoon of bowling, burgers and games at this laid-back restaurant on Yas Bay. Inspired by the streets of the Big Apple, Central promises buzzing vibes, family-friendly dining (including a kids’ menu!), an arcade offering your favourite games and a bowling alley! Tuck into a mouthwatering menu as you challenge each other to a friendly game - all with 20% off! 

For the perfect date, dine indoors at Asia Asia

Dine at Asia Asia on Yas Bay waterfront, where you get the best of both worlds with the air conditioning breeze, picturesque views and delicious dishes. 

Delight in the award-winning menu at a fraction of the price with your Privilee membership. Save up to 20% off the total bill for Privilee members and up to three other guests. Round up the gang and savour the tempting appetizers, fresh sushi rolls and delectable desserts that offer a delightful escape from the summer sun. My top menu recommendation has to be the Crispy Shrimp Tempura Maki and the Creamy Sweet Potato Dim Sum! **Chefs kiss.**

Entertain the kids for hours at Bradee Kids’ Club at Beach Rotana

Escape the summer heat and let your little ones unleash their imagination at the colourful Bradee Kids’ Club. Privilee Members can make the most of complimentary access for children aged 4 - 12, making it the ultimate summer hang-out for younger Privilee’ers. With games, puzzles, arts and crafts, plus a shaded kids’ pool close by, there’s no limit to the fun they can have. Watch as your kids embark on a friendly fun adventure in this magical play paradise! 

Work out at Warehouse Gym Yas Bay amongst the latest gym equipment 

With trainers at arm's length and complimentary group fitness classes to suit all abilities, is summer the new January? Get into a gym routine at Warehouse Gym Yas Bay, and prepare to smash your health and fitness goals throughout the summer. 

Beat the heat while staying fit and potentially trying something new and meeting like-minded people whilst really working on yourself. 

Embrace the motivating atmosphere as you work up a sweat and soak up the buzzing vibes - featuring music, low lighting and an Insta-worthy gym setting. From the state-of-the-art treadmills and weight machines to exhilarating group classes such as MetCon and Spinning, enjoy the top notch-facilities as you take your fitness journey to the next level.

Turn your daycay into a staycay and save up to 25% 

Why limit yourself to one day? Turn your daycay into a staycay and save up to 25% with your Privilee membership! From relaxing by the pool to indulging in delicious meals (with a Privilee discount!), enjoy slowing down this summer and making the most of your Privilee membership.
