Make a splash and take a dip in one of these ten fabulous swimming pools that you can daycay at with your Privilee Membership - recommended by Privilee Member, Louise!
Whether you’re looking for family-friendly resorts or peaceful adults-only pools, or perhaps a buzzing beach club, with Privilee, there are options to suit everyone.
Sipping on an Aperol Spritz whilst laying around the Capri Pool at Palazzo Versace Hotel, it’s easy to forget that you're lounging by the Dubai Creek Harbour, and not on the Italian Amalfi Coast. I absolutely love spending the day at the Palazzo Versace as it caters to the whole family. It has three beautiful swimming pools, La Piscina, Portofino and Capri as well as seven restaurants and bars (within which Privilee Members receive a 25% discount!).
Fluid Beach Club
Fluid Beach Club can be found at Th8 Hotel on Palm Jumeirah. It’s the perfect place to chill with friends from day to night. This beach club offers Privilee Members and up to four guests a 25% discount on food and drinks so you can soak up the sun, sip champagne and stay for sunset - all whilst saving money!
Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah
Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah has a Main Pool that the whole family can enjoy, especially Mums and Dads with the swim-up pool bar! The hotel also has a shaded kid’s pool surrounded by sun loungers so that parents can lie back and watch the kids play. When we visit here, we always have lunch or an early dinner at Villamore, a really cute beachfront restaurant!
Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk
Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk is another great hotel to visit as a family. The stunning Soleil swimming pool has a great shaded kid’s pool attached with a splash pad for little ones to enjoy. It’s also a fab Instagrammable spot, with great views of the Dubai Skyline.
Cove Beach Dubai
A slice of adult-only heaven is the best way to describe this Privilee spot! Cove Beach Dubai can be found on Bluewaters Island and has three swimming pools available for Privilee Members to enjoy every day of the week. Cove Beach hosts a range of events each day so you can choose to party the day away or relax and unwind, it’s totally up to you!
InterContinental Dubai Marina
Hidden amongst the concrete jungle with stunning views of Dubai Marina, the InterContinental Dubai Marina offers chilled vibes, cocktails and the comfiest sunbeds – I don’t know what more you could want from a pool day! The pool is open daily from 8am to 8pm and has a gym on the same floor, just in case you wanted to have a quick workout before cooling off in the rooftop pool.
Melia Desert Palm
Melia Desert Palm is an oasis located a short drive out into the Dubai Desert. The hotel has a beautiful infinity pool, with views spanning over the connected polo club. If you’re spending a day here, you should make sure to pop into the Samana Spa for a massage before returning to reality!
Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort
Another family-friendly pool day can be found at the Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort. This Thai-inspired hotel has a stunning 50-metre infinity pool with ample sun loungers surrounding it, however, the hotel's highlight for me has to be the beautiful lagoon winding throughout the resort.
The lagoon has a shallow sand bank which is the perfect place for little ones to sit and play before diving into the lagoon for a swim. One of the best parts is a little wooden boat that passes through the lagoon every few hours selling drinks - I like to treat myself to a fresh coconut – but if you’re lucky, your little one may even be able to have a ride on it!
Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
This hotel is one of my absolute favourites when I need some downtime. As soon as you pull up to the front of the hotel and are greeted by the friendly valet team, you feel at home. Enjoy both luxury and comfort with five-star service and super comfy beach sun loungers.
The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah has a brilliant pool overlooking the beach, and tucked around to the righthand side of the resort, hidden amongst the palm trees, is an adult-only pool where you can really switch off and enjoy some peace and quiet.
Hyde Hotel Dubai
The rooftop pool at Hyde Hotel Dubai has views of the Dubai Skyline that are hard to beat, and some of the comfiest sun beds I have experienced! With its super chic décor and renowned dining - which Privilee Members save 20% on, it’s a must-visit. Katsuya is a great spot for date night!
Living in Dubai we are so lucky to have so many beautiful hotels and resorts right here on our doorstep. That’s why I am so thankful to have my Privilee Membership which allows me to make the most of all they have to offer!
