Dubai Resort Pools and Playgrounds with Shade

To add on to my previous piece on Resort Pools close to the main building, this piece covers Pools and Playgrounds in resorts which have shade – regardless of the time of the day.

This means that they :

  • Have a roof over part of their main pool – some are by the bars areas, some are over their jacuzzi areas
  • Have a shaded outdoor Playground

Note that these are main pools, and not kids pools. To highlight for most of them – you do have to walk underneath the sun which can be a pain, but once you are at the pool and playground – you are good for the day.

Follow us on Instagram as we explore all the many pools in and around Dubai.

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
