*Intro was written Summer 2020*

A lot of us are stuck here in Dubai this summer, due to various obvious reasons. This year’s summer will feel even longer as most of us have been cooped up in our homes for the last few months. As hotel pools and beaches start opening up, it was a huge relief to us .. somewhere else to go with the kids, hooray 🙂

I then started searching for pool and beach day pass info on social media, screen-shotting all the details and figured it might be easier for myself to just put it on the blog! Most of these are close to where we’re at (the marina) and most likely a Privilee resort as well (shown with a * in the listing) as I will resume my membership. Handy so we can at least plan playdates with non-members, and if the other half doesn’t choose to sign up to Privilee this summer – he can just pay for a day pass 😉 Let’s get through this summer together – it has been a really tough past few months for everyone I’m sure. Stay safe.

PS – If you want to learn some tips on how to save $$ whilst spending a day at a hotel pool & beach, have a read through here on ‘A hotel day with the family – How much does it really cost?’

PPS – If you are going to the resorts at least twice a week and don’t intend to spend that much on F&B, I would highly suggest you try out Privilee. It’s much more worth it.

Notes :

  1. Non-affiliated. Just making it easier to do a listing for my own reference which I feel may be handy for friends and families as well.
  2. Please cross-check details with the hotels to reconfirm in case they change their T&Cs.
  3. If any of the info above is incorrect, drop me a message.

For all venues – if you would like to advertise / include an image, get in touch with me.
