Even though September weather is notoriously humid, it signals that the blistering heat of the summer is behind us and may months of stunning weather is ahead. Often this means we can turn down the AC, step outside and breath the fresh air and head to one of Dubai’s glamorous swimming pool locations. Here are our top 5 undiscovered pool days.
Mandarin Oriental, Jumeirah
It seem this glorious hotel nestled on Jumeirah beachfront appeared overnight. In fact the hotel had secretly been in development for several years. The glittering hotel holds all the eastern charm one would expect from the Mandarin Oriental. The Pool’s (yes you heard correctly, there are many) elegantly cover the U shaped courtyard of the hotel. Guests can enjoy a maze of shallow relaxation pools, private corners for a refreshing beverage, a lap pool for those motivated to use it and in-pool sun loungers.
Bulgari Yacht Club, Jumeirah Bay
Many may be aware of the Bulgari Hotel opening its doors back in 2018 along with its exclusive Yacht Club. Although the yacht club does include a private members club, the Yacht Club pool is open to everyone and offers chilled out vibes, delicious authentic italian cuisine along with well trained staff that know their Aperitivo from their Aperol.
Versace Palazzo, Culture Village
This hotel was in the making for nearly 10 years and cost over 2 Billion Dirhams to build. As you walk through the lobby’s mosaiced floors you are greeted by one of the main pool areas of the hotel. The pool is lavishly decorated with Versace’s iconic Medusa head and has views across Dubai Creek. If you have not visited this hotel or pool we challenge you to find any detail you will not fall in love with.
Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa Area , Downtown Dubai
We think there is something very 007 about swimming at this record breaking building and Dubai icon the Burj Khalifa. Nestled on the outside corner of The Armani hotel is the pool deck. Contemporary lines and squeaky clean stainless steel sparkles as you cool down in this exclusive location.
One & Only, Royal Mirage, The Palm Jumeirah
Nestled on the tip of The Palm Jumeirah West Crescent, the One & Only is a hotel synonymous with Dubai’s luxury hote scene. Although the hotel has been established for many years the decadent pool has kept its secrecy over the years offering ultra high end service in a luxurious and private location.
