The best swimming pools in the UAE!

The weather is cooling down, which means that we can sit in the sun, get a tan, and not feel like we've decided to sit in an oven for the afternoon. 

Take a look at the best swimming pools we could find in the UAE... 

1: The Address Downtown Dubai 

There's really no place better to swim! The view of the Burj from The Address Downtown Dubai's pool is unforgettable. The pool also has a kids area and amazing chairs that keep you cool while in the water! 

Price: Dh300 for all day pool access

2: Zaya Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi

You're planning that holiday to the Maldives... Eventually! But for now, why not go a little closer to home! Be it just a pool day, or a weekend away. Zaya Nurai Island is one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. (We're not joking, their on the Top 50 list!)

5: Anantara Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort, Liwa Desert 

A 3 hour drive outside of Dubai this location is the perfect place for a staycation, but if you're willing to brave the drive for just a pool day, you'll struggle to want to leave and probably book a room anyway!
