Where to take a dip in Dubai? From infinity pools to rooftop decks and a luxury lagoon, these hotels and beach clubs offer the best spots for a cool and ever-so-chilled afternoon
As temperatures soar, and humidity hits an all-time high, the only way to conquer the summer heat is to cool off in the most alluring turquoise pool you can find. But with its endless stream of sun decks, swim-up bars and barefoot-chic hangouts, Dubai is bursting with too many temperature-controlled waters to dip your toe into. How to choose? Here are some of the most luxurious Dubai pools to (elegantly) paddle in.
Brining a Mediterranean vibe to the shores of Arabia, Bulgari Yacht Club promises a laid-lack pool day that is heightened in luxury. Sink into plush loungers and hideaway in wooden cabanas, before a dip into the tranquil waters and an authentic Italian lunch overlooking the property’s super yachts. Prefer a sky-high swim? Cé La Vi’s rooftop pool at Address Sky View, offers panoramic views of the Burj Khalifa, that become particularly breathtaking when the sun turns from blue to gold, pink and purple.
If you’re missing Ibiza this summer, settle for the next best thing and spend a day at W Dubai – The Palm’s Wet Deck. With splash pools, cabanas and water beds to lounge on, you can stay cool and still enjoy the spot’s lively beach-side buzz. And if you a pool with a difference, Park Hyatt Dubai’s lagoon adds an extra element of city slicker cool to the hotel’s array of undeniably glamorous, palm-fringed pools. Dive in (and don’t forget the waterproof SPF).
