If you have been in Dubai a while, you may have heard of Privilee. If you are new to Dubai, or haven’t heard of it yet, here’s the concept: beach clubs in Dubai cost a fortune. FYI. If you are an expat from England, would you spend £50 on laying down in the sun (OK in England we don’t have the sun) for the day? No, you wouldn’t, it’s nice, an absolutely luxury, but you are British, you would not spend £50 on a sunbed for the day, but sadly this is our reality living in Dubai. If you have a girls tanning day on the Friday, and then a day in the sunshine with your man on the Saturday, you are looking at a pretty expensive month!
Introducing Privilee to save the day! Privilee is 599AED a month (£125 a month) for unlimited laying down in the sun across a whole host of luxury hotels in Dubai & Abu Dhabi, as well as gym & spa access, kids clubs, and 20% off food & drinks where you choose to lay. Great right?
Hotels include the Fairmount The Palm & Abu Dhabi, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club, RIVA, The Palace Downtown Dubai, Rixos The Palm Dubai, Conrad Dubai, Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, Sofitel The Palm Beach Resort & Spa, Saadiyat Beach Club.
We’re using Privilee even in the Summer (follow our weekends on Instagram), sitting in a cool pool with someone coming round to give you a cold towel on the odd occasion beats sitting by our lukewarm home pool any day! *yes, we do appreciate there are bigger things going on in the world. Every weekend feels like a holiday, and with Dubai time (not as per normal time) going so fast, it’s great to relax, slowdown and unwind as though on a mini break every weekend.
Gather up the girls, and schedule a weekend day at the beach for catchups & cocktails! Privilee is best when shared with friends & family.
We’re also thoroughly enjoying the hotel gyms (Sofitel The Palm Beach Resort & Spa being our favourite so far). Our overall hotel favourite? For sure, The Palace Downtown Dubai with an incredible view of the Burj Khalifa, it’s a Dubai pinch yourself moment soaking up the sun with the tallest building in the world as your view.
- A Privilee membership is a single membership. It is a personal membership which allows access for one adult member. Each couple can, however, bring two children under the age of 15 to most beach clubs free of charge. That is, in a family of four, each adult would need his or her own membership for the entire family to enjoy free beach and pool access at our five-star partner hotels
- The slots at the beach clubs are available on a sharing and revolving, first come, first served basis. This means that it is not possible to reserve a slot before you arrive
