Most refreshing pools in the UAE

With temperatures soaring in the 40s most people will have succumbed to staying indoors for the next 4 months, but not us. Once we’ve exhausted the cinemas, the indoor restaurants and cafés and the Dubai Mall ice rink, there’s only so much ‘Mall-ing’ we can do! Vowing to get some outdoors air into our system, we’ve researched hotels with the best chilled pools, and we will be spending a lot of the coming weekends chilling in one of them. Luckily it wont break the bank as they are on the ENTERTAINER 2for1 summer offer!

Sofitel The Palm Dubai

Situated on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, Sofitel The Palm will ease you into a state of pure relaxation with its Polynesian tropical theme and lush gardens. There is plenty to keep you occupied from water sports, to beach volleyball, aqua-bounce park, multipurpose ball courts, and eco golfing…explore them all during your stay at the resort. Splash about in any of the six outdoor pools some with slides and waterfalls! Or stretch your legs on the private beach and zone out in the state-of-the-art So Spa. Bliss.

Fairmont The Palm Dubai 

With hundreds of hotels dotted along The Palm Jumeirah, there’s one that remains a firm favourite: Fairmont The Palm. Best known for its five-star service, beachside location and rooms kitted out to the highest standard, The Fairmont won’t let you down. Make sure to take a dip in one of the gorgeous pools, or enjoy a host of water-sports such as water skiing or wake boarding.

Grand Hyatt Dubai 

Known for its prestige and five-star hospitality, you never can go wrong with the Grand Hyatt Dubai. For those who want to bask in the summer sun without straying too far from the city skyline, Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall are just right around the corner. Other than that, this 37-acred green oasis boasts 674 rooms, 42 suites and gorgeous pools to complete your mid-day tan sessions all summer long.

Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

Located on a private beach with arguably the best panoramic sunset views in the capital, this exclusive property offers Arabic gondola rides, a lavish spa with the most glorious massage treatments, and outdoor pools which will cool your temperature down this summer. Relax in the luxurious rooms with elegant furnishings, and balconies with a view of the stunning garden or Arabian Gulf.

Fairmont Bab Al Bahr

Fairmont Bab Al Bahr features two private sandy beaches which are just perfect for playing beach-side games. Have a go at volleyball, throw a frisbee, or take to the glistening Arabian Gulf for a spot of paddle boarding or kayaking. If you’re not feeling overly active then just sit back with a cool beverage and enjoy the spectacular views of the Abu Dhabi Creek and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.  A temperature controlled Olympic length lap pool alongside a covered children’s pool area, and a pool side Jacuzzi complete the experience.
