JUMEIRAH ZABEEL SARAY HOTEL, DUBAI
What’s so great about this pool?
This is without doubt one of the best infinity pools in Dubai. It is a 59-metre infinity pool that looks out at the Arabian Gulf and, oh, it is exquisite. We’re talking warm yet refreshing silky water dotted with palm trees and looking out across a private beachfront, the umbrellas of which are just visible in the sumptuous photo above. It’s the landscaping of this ‘lagoon’ that makes this pool seriously special.
- Many of the lagoon residences look out at this spectacular pool – you can specify a pool view when you book.
- There is a fun children’s pool, but it’s at the Children’s club. There are trained lifeguards too.
- Two Jacuzzis mean you can sit and bubble if you fancy.
- Down on the beach just below the pool there are beach butlers – nice touch.
So this is one of the best infinity pools in Dubai, but what’s the hotel like?
Nestled on the water edge, this fabulous five-star hotel is just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport, and from it you can see not only the Arabian Gulf but also views of Dubai’s famous skyline. The lavish architecture and decor is influenced by the Ottoman Empire and it is breathtaking. The spa is ultra-opulent. There are outstanding restaurants, hotel shuttle boats to and from the private beach to the Dubai Marina, a great kids’ club and an impressive range of watersports and boat rides and some fabulous designer shops to give you a taste of the shopping to be had in the nearby city. Hotel residents get free entry to the water and marine animal parks nearby.
What else is there to do?
Dubai is the place to go for sun, but there is much more to do here if you can peel yourself away from your sunbed. There’s amazing designer shopping in the city, there’s also the tallest building in the world, Burj Kahlifa which stands at 321 metres high amidst the most incredible contemporary architecture. And how about taking a local boat across Dubai Creek, or going on a dessert safari? Find out more about Dubai at www.visitdubai.com/en
