If you are looking for a place to chill in Dubai in the searing heat (and want to avoid the TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet guides) take a look at our selection of the city’s best rooftop pools. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to tan in the day or get a night cap – these are the best spots.
After a snuggle in their super-comfortable chairs, it’ll be pretty hard for you to want to nap anywhere else. Plus, this rooftop pool has an incredible bonus: it has one of the most stunning views of the Dubai skyline and is completely indoors so you won’t have to deal with the unbearable summer heat.

The Wet Deck is probably the place to be in Dubai. Not only do they host one of the best events in town, but you can also kick it there during the day for a tanning session or for a night out with friends.
If you are looking for some solace far away from the wild Dubai party crowd, the St Regis is perfect for you. They have a cute rooftop pool where you can actually hear each other talking without deafening loud music and day-partygoers.
Located in the incredible Jumeirah, the Sofitel’s infinity pool will cool you down as you enjoy a sweeping beach view and the surrounding skyline. You can order delicious light snacks by the pool and enjoy their fresh cocktails and drinks until midnight. Head there for sunset to flood your insta feed.
We couldn’t list all of the above without mentioning the famous Meydan hotel. Although it’s small, this infinity pool is beyond beautiful. It overlooks the Meydan racecourse and is far from the city centre..
