We all love vacations, but having a Privilee membership means you don’t need to board a flight to enjoy beaches and sun, you can simply browse through your app to find a luxury hotel that you can visit for a daycation instead!
A daycation in the Emirate feels like a mini holiday, only with getting to sleep in your own bed at the end of the day (which we all secretly love!), and with a price tag that’s less than your typical coffee order (approx 21 AED per day), it makes it all the more appealing!
So no matter how you like to daycay, we’ve rounded up our top spots that we think you would love below.
For the laid back couples…
Picture this, an infinity pool with submerged pool beds, stunning views and casual beats playing in the background – you and your partner will love laying back in luxury here!

For the families after fun in the sun…
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina
With a gorgeous stretch of beach and five chilled pools to choose from, you’re guaranteed a good time with the family! Splash away in the lagoon pool before treating yourself to some of the best poolside ice creams in town. Parents can escape to the adults’ pool for glass or two, whilst the kiddies occupy themselves at the shaded kids’ pool with waterslide.
