I'm Yasmin, a mum of three very energetic kids living in Dubai. If you're like me and tired of malls and indoor playgrounds, keep reading for a fantastic summer hack that will keep you and your family entertained all season long.

Privilee’s Summer Offer is here!

For just AED 1,799, you can get a 3-month Privilee membership, and the best part is that each adult membership includes up to three children per family.

With Privilee, you'll have access to pools, beaches, kids' clubs, gyms, and discounts on food and drinks. There are so many options to keep the kids busy, away from screens, and out of the malls!

Here are some of our favourite family spots that offer great pools and kids' clubs:

JA Beach Resort

Enjoy Just Splash, Splash Park, miniature golf, kids' clubs, and lots of pools to choose from. We love visiting this resort to make the most of a family day out together - there’s so much to see and do here! 

The Westin Dubai & Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina

This resort literally has everything! Jungle Bay Waterpark is a huge hit with the kids - think water tippers, slides, and sprinklers. For my youngest, there’s a great kids’ pool too. It’s very shallow and completely shaded which is perfect for these hot summer days. 

We usually start our day here with breakfast at Mina’s Kitchen - the variety is epic we save 25% with Privilee! 

Taj Exotica Resort & Spa

Another resort with great activities for the kids. This is a lovely resort to visit if you want to spend a day on The Palm! Taj Exotica Resort has a kids’ club, a shaded kids’ pool, poolside games like Connect Four, and even a putting green (probably best for the cooler months though). 

Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort

Wow, this resort is absolutely stunning! If you want to feel like you’ve escaped the city and transported to the Maldives, this is the place for it. As I have more spare time during summer, it’s an ideal time for me to do more daycays outside of Dubai with the kids. The drive is just over an hour for us and well worth it. There’s a great kids’ club for little ones, a shallow kids’ pool with sun loungers surrounding it, and plenty of areas to explore across the resort. My kids particularly love the ice cream from Waves Café!

Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club

If you’re looking for a laid-back resort, I recommend Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club. This club is fairly close to where we live so it’s nice that we can pop in and out for a quick splash in the pool. During summer, they have an inflatable slide at the main pool! This is amazing fun for older kids, and for the younger ones, there is a shaded kids’ pool close by. 

Sofitel Dubai The Palm

A true family favourite, Sofitel Dubai The Palm is such a gem. There is a kids’ pool with two slides my older two love to play on, and Amura Kids’ Club is filled with heaps of activities to keep them busy. This is especially handy during the summer months when the kids might need a break indoors during the day! 

Jumeirah Zabeel Saray 

The kids’ options here are epic. There’s a kids’ club, a mini splash park, a shaded baby pool and a kids’ pool, plus a huge large pool. Endless options for them to dive into! When we visit Jumeirah Zabeel Saray we always make a day of it - there’s loads of stuff for the kids to explore and great dining options available. We tend to eat snacks or lunch by the pool under the shade of the umbrella - the kids never want to leave to go anywhere else! 

Something for me… 

With the weather heating up, I'm doing fewer outdoor walks, so it's fantastic that Privilee has so many gyms available to help me get my steps in. I’ll often go to one of the Fitness First gyms, listen to a podcast and do a 30-minute treadmill walk - perfect! I’ve also tried Boxica and The Lab Studios recently. It’s amazing being able to go to such a different variety of fitness classes which are suitable for different levels etc. My goal is to visit four new gyms during the summer!

Summer Your Way

With unbeatable benefits and so many options, there’s no better time than now to experience Privilee at an incredible price! Get 3 months for AED 1,799. 

See you poolside!
