2022 Pool Days Dubai

How Do Pool Day Passes in 2022 Work?

Most publicly accessible pools in Dubai require a pool pass, and not all passes are created equal. Some of the cheaper passes only include access to the pool itself. Dubai’s best pools include extra perks like a lounge and towel - some are even fully redeemable, meaning that the price of the pass can be applied to your food and drink while you’re at the pool! No matter your budget, doing a little research beforehand can ensure that you’re getting the most for your money during your pool days in Dubai.

The Social Pool

Location: FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai

Hours: 8:00 AM - 7:30 PM daily

Pass Includes: Access to rooftop sofas and sunbeds, fully redeemable for food and drinks

Perhaps one of Dubai’s most Insta-famous pools, The Social Pool at the Five Palm Jumeirah Hotel is a gorgeous pool to spend your days lounging by. Ringed by towering palm trees and an amazing view of the Dubai Marina, the pool is the venue for notoriously dazzling parties and some of the best live music for pool days in Dubai - you might even spot a celeb soaking up the sun in one of their VIP lounges!

If you’re more of a party animal, The Social Pool hosts their Urban Pool Party every Tuesday from 12PM onwards. It’s an epic splash-dance party with tunes from internationally renowned DJs that you absolutely cannot miss! If that wasn’t enough of an incentive for you, ladies get in for free from Monday to Wednesday, with a discounted rate for the gents.

The Social Pool is one of the best places to see and be seen in Dubai, so it’s only rational to bring your hottest swimsuit along. Our current fave is the Firenze Beads Bikini from Vix - it takes the classic string bikini design and elevates it with beaded straps at the shoulders and hips, catching the light as you soak up the sun on one of the best pool days Dubai has to offer.

Brunch is a must-have on any summer itinerary, and The Green Room has one of the best pool brunches around. Built to be the ultimate hangout spot, The Green Room doesn’t just have a pool - they offer a wide range of food options in their restaurant, cocktails, kid-friendly days, and even opportunities for gaming while you work on your tan. It’s no wonder that entrance to The Green Room is one of the hottest pool day passes in 2022.

With so many options available, you’ll need a cover-up that can take you from poolside to bar in style. A simple, elegant piece like the Ashley Kaftan from Melissa Obadash is just the thing - its flowy silhouette and delicate embroidered details are oh-so-trendy. Throw on your favourite heels and grab your best clutch for an effortless day-to-night look for the perfect pool days in Dubai.

For a trendy and alluring vibe for your 2022 pool days in Dubai, look no further than Fluid Beach Club at the TH8 Palm Hotel. Their in-house DJ is one of the best in Dubai, adding a distinct ambience to their chic cabanas. Head over for light bites and sharing platters that are perfect for a day out with your friends and signature cocktails that will carry you through all night long.

As an added bonus, the club hosts “Secret Parties” every Friday, featuring epic beats from their live DJs and local entertainers, an amazing lunch, and premium drinks. You can book pool day passes for 2022, sunbeds, tables, cabanas, and VIP areas in advance for a really fantastic night!

A funky location like this deserves an out-of-this-world outfit, and the Neck Halter Jumpsuit in Lady Stardust from Camilla fits the bill perfectly. The wide leg design creates a flowy silhouette that makes you look ethereal, and the crystal embellishments are perfect for catching the light.

Playa Beach Club

Location: Palm West Beach Dubai

Hours: 10:00 AM - 2:00 AM daily

Pass Includes: Redeemable on food and beverage

Not all of the beach clubs in Dubai are high-energy - some, like the Playa Beach Club, are laid-back, cultivating an effortlessly chic vibe for you to enjoy as you relax during your pool days in Dubai. The club fosters a restorative, almost spa-like atmosphere with shamanic house music, various events and rituals, and a decor scheme focused on sunlight and life. If you’re looking for a beach day that will enrich your soul, Playa Beach Club is the place to be for one of the best pool days in Dubai.

The vibe of the Playa Beach Club is so unique that it just begs for a special outfit to go with it. The Zuri Dress from Flook the Label is a slinky, refined piece that works beautifully as a coverup for a swimsuit or a dress for a night out. The tiered detailing in the skirt has an offbeat, spiritual aesthetic that perfectly matches the club's tone.

Bulgari Yacht Club

Location: Bulgari Hotel and Resorts, Jumeirah Bay Island

Hours: 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM daily

If you have any associations with the words “yacht club”, it’s probably fancy and elegant. The Bulgari Yacht Club doesn’t disappoint, offering a Mediterranean-style atmosphere in the middle of Dubai with their pristine pool surrounded by luxury cabana beds. Overlooking a breathtaking 46-boat harbour, the club offers a world-class Italian restaurant, lounge, and bar alongside a dedicated kid’s club. The cost of booking their cabanas and other amenities can be redeemed in food and drink, making the Bulgari Yacht Club the ultimate in pool day passes for 2022.

Sophistication is the name of the game at the Bulgari Yacht club, and the Goelette Sophistique from Eres has it in spades. The sleek peephole design and structure silhouette look fabulous on a wide variety of body types, and the striped edging adds a bit of visual interest that elevates the piece to new heights.
