Private beaches and beach clubs in Dubai are quite a thing, especially in the summers. Everyone wants to go to one of these beach clubs with good music, most probably over The Palm or somewhere where they can sip on some cocktails by turquoise-blue pools and lay under the sun. However, all these come with a price tag of AED 300++ for one day access to one of these spots. For some people, it’s a common practice to visit every weekend (Friday and Saturday). These beach clubs (mostly a part of one of the hotel chains) offer monthly memberships as well, starting from approximately AED 5000 for an individual, valid only for one venue.
If you are a beach lover, explorer or a photographer you’d get bored of visiting one place every weekend, at least I did. But lately, I found out about this really amazing membership program by the name Privilee ! and let me tell you why I find it amazing.
Unlimited access to beach clubs in Dubai
The Privilee offers unlimited and full access to around 20+ beach clubs here in Dubai. Some really trendy and cool spots for me to just go relax over the weekend or just take amazing photographs. Not all but some of these beach clubs are at The Palm with quite beautiful and calm ambience.
Not that I am a gym freak but the Privilee membership comes with access to 20+ Gyms and an average of 20% discount at almost all the restaurants in these hotels (which make 150+ restaurants approx)
The price for all this is AED 600 per month if you pay monthly or AED 500 per month if you buy a yearly membership. The amount that would otherwise cover only 2 days of beach access for me, if I did not have this membership.
No joke, ever since the day I have gotten this membership, I have been visiting literally all these fancy beach clubs that Privilee is a partner with. Makes much easier for me to make good photographs, relax over the weekends by the beach or pool without the hassle of buying access every time or buying each beach club’s membership separately (and spending money on each separately too).
The beach clubs I have full access with this membership are:
- DoubleTree by Hilton JBR
- Riva Beach Club
- The Westin Dubai and Le Méridien Mina Seyahi
- Conrad Dubai
- Fairmont The Palm
- Habtoor Grand
- Shangri-La Hotel (not the pool upstairs with Burj Khalifa view but the IKandy Ultralounge on 4th floor)
- Waldorf Astoria
- Sofitel The Palm
- Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club
- The Address Dubai Marina (one of my favourite infinity pools with a view of Dubai Marina)
- Kempinski Hotel Palm Jumeirah
- Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek
- The Palace Downtown Dubai
- Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort
- Rixos The Palm Dubai
- Le Méridien Dubai
I have not been to all the above beach clubs or resorts but they are on the list. Hopefully, in coming weekends I’ll visit (or revisiting) some more of them. Definitely, I’ll be sharing the photographs from there on my Instagram.
