elen Farmer, aka @themothershipdxb sheds some light on the best pools for kids...

Whether you have a baby dipping their tiny toe for the first time, or a talented teen looking to swim for hours, here are some of the coolest pools on Privilee. 

Atlantis The Palm

One of Dubai’s most iconic hotels has loads for families, with two huge pools and a lovely beach. With Privilee you also get access for three children aged 3 to 15, where they have a pool and splash pad, plus 20% off restaurants, including Bread Street Kitchen!

Sofitel Dubai The Palm

This is all about family fun, with six pools across the resort. Our favourite is the plunge pool that has two slides, where my girls have spent literally hours going up and down, but there’s also a special kids’ pool, plus the Amura Kids’ Club. Here you’ll find a line-up of activities from crafts to karaoke for up to 12s (under 3s need to have a parent with them) plus toys, games and shallow waters for splashing. 

Park Hyatt Dubai

While there isn’t a dedicated pool for children at this stunning Creekside property, the new lagoon is perfect for little ones, with a sandy shore and shallow pool where they can sit and play. The staff are also fantastic, happy to entertain while you enjoy some lunch or the view. The food offering is amazing too, with poolside nibbles up to five-star fine dining, all with 25% off. 

The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi

Go for a few hours or stay the whole day – with a water slide, beach, lazy river and beach, there’s so much for families here, and Privilee members score access for two aged 0 to 17. There’s a number of child-friendly pools across the resort, with plenty of shade, an ice-cream stand and lots of grass to run around on. And you can’t go to The Westin without pizza at Bussola, where you get 25% discount from Saturday - Wednesday.

Bab Al Shams

A drive out to this desert resort truly feels like a mini-vacation, and it’s well worth the trip. Pools across different levels await, with a kids’ pool and club, dunes to explore and a fantastic brunch offering bouncy castle, live music, outstanding food, and camel rides. 

Fairmont The Palm

Famed for its splash pad and kids’ club (that offers 2 hours of complimentary access per day), your children will be begging to go back every day. Indoors there’s a rock-climbing wall, healthy snacks, activity coordinators, and plenty of things to build, play with and jump off, while outside the splash pad will have them running around for hours.  

...and thats a wrap!
