With its scorching hot temperatures and insane humidity, everyone knows that summer in Dubai is for the most part, totally unbearable. And because summer holidays aren’t always an option, rooftop pools are the perfect staycation solution.
Whether you’re looking to slip in a quick tan sesh between meetings, or just somewhere to de-stress after a long day at work—be sure to check out our selection of the city’s best rooftop pools.
Address Dubai Marina
Offering the best views at the Marina, The Address’s rooftop infinity pool isn’t to be missed. Perfect for a day-time swim or for nighttime stargazing—this popular hotel is the place to be in the summer.
The Burj Club at Burj Khalifa
Is there any better way to escape Dubai’s summer heat than spending it lounging at one of the city’s most exclusive addresses? The rooftop at the Burj is the perfect spot to grab brunch any day of the week, but if you’re more about grabbing a nightcap, the club hosts a ‘rooftop soiree’ three times a week.
St. Regis Dubai
If you’re looking for a quieter setting, be sure to check out the St. Regis. Set around lush greenery, the pool is the perfect escape from the city’s wilder crowds.
La Ville Hotel & Suites
As one of the city’s very few boutique hotels, La Ville Hotel is always a unique experience—and their rooftop infinity pool is no exception. The quaint setting is the ideal for a quick mid-day dip—or better yet—catching the sunset overlooking the Burj Khalifa.
Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach
If you’re into sea views but prefer lounging in the safety of a contained space—Sofitel’s rooftop pool at Jumeirah Beach should be your go-to spot this summer. Overlooking the waters, it’s the ultimate Dubai spot to lounge around, and catch a tan.
