Dubai dwellers and visitors alike, here are some of the best swimming pools in the emirate if you want to capture a scroll-stopping snap as well as relax.
The best pools with a view in Dubai
While many of locals are lucky enough to have accessible pools right on our doorstep, not many of them measure up to what some of the finest hotels in Dubai have to offer. From infinity pools that will take your breath away to pools overlooking the incredible city skyline, here are some of the most picturesque spots to dip into in the emirate.
FIVE Palm Jumeirah
Located on The Palm, this celebrity-adored hotel has become a favourite to capture a view of Dubai Marina’s sky-high towers. With several of the world’s tallest residential buildings in the world locating in the little cluster (with even more inventive architecture), it makes for a great spot to capture on camera. As for the pool itself, both the main pool (pictured) and the pool located in The Penthouse offer incredible views of the sea and city simultaneously.
The Meydan Hotel
We all can’t resist the urge to Instagram an infinity pool, least not one overlooking the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. Peer down at the greens of the racecourse and the lights of the skyline as you stay refreshed thanks to to the Equus pool bar.
Burj Al Arab
Ensure your mind is as clear and serene as your view with a day spent sun lounging at the Burj Al Arab’s Terrace Pool. Immerse yourself in everything blue with the sun loungers that dip into the waters and provide an endless view of the Arabian Gulf. From the prestigious hotel, you can obviously expect unbeatable hospitality as you wind down in a cabana or fill up at the restaurant.
La Ville Hotel & Suites
An infinity pool surrounded by palm trees and overlooking the Burj Khalifa is one we want to climb into… Located in the boutique City Walk hotel, the small pool makes for a peaceful escape with an incredible view, especially as the sun begins to set.
Bab Al Shams
How about a glimpse of the desert to really make you appreciate the body of water you’re immersed in? Bab Al Shams is the desert hotel that you need to visit, from stunning surroundings and suites to a family brunch on the weekend to remember. But as for the pool, the sandy setting only makes it more tranquil and romantic.
