Fancy a swim, especially on a hot day? Well, instead of visiting another ordinary pool, why not opt for something a little bit more luxurious and try swimming in an infinity pool?
Usually found in high-end resorts or hotels, these pools make for quite the awe-inspiring experience! After all, there’s nothing like relaxing while having a breathtaking view.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite infinity pools in Dubai!
Cloud 22 – Dubai Atlantis, The Royal
|Sky Pool, Private Cabanas, VVIP Cabana
|Mondays - Sundays: 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Let’s start with something really fancy for this list. If you managed to shell out the cash to book a stay at The Royal, Dubai Atlantis, then Cloud 22 is definitely a swimming experience like no other.
It’s a fancy infinity pool located on the 22nd floor, granting you an amazing view of the nearby Arabian Gulf and cityscape. You’ll definitely want to take some pictures here as you splash about on the water.
The Royal advertises the place as just a chill and casual place to sit back, enjoy the view, and perhaps even sip a couple of cocktails from their bar. Of course, nothing bad about stretching those swimming muscles in the pool either so just jump in!
There’s private cabanas for those who want to get a place all for themselves but if you want to be really fancy, you can also try their VVIP cabanas.
Cloud 22’s VVIP cabana comes with its own private pool to enjoy on your own and you can even listen in to live music performed by the DJ hyping up the place for that day. Not a bad way to experience the views in the hotel.
As the sun sets, listen in as the music kicks up and the bars start serving sparkling sophistication. Not a bad time to grab a bite from their French-Mediterranean-inspired snacks to regain some of that energy spent swimming.
It’s definitely an expensive experience, costing you around AED 5,000 as you need to stay in the hotel. Still, we think Cloud 22 is definitely one of the best infinity pools in Dubai to check out.
Where to Find Cloud 22 – Dubai Atlantis, The Royal:
As you are located in a rather fancy hotel, you can make use of the place’s amenities to make your stay a lot more comfortable. You can choose to chill at the lounge or even catch a show by the Skyblaze Fountain just outside the hotel.
There’s a good number of different restaurants to check out for when you’re feeling famished. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal offers British cuisine dating all the way back to 1300, giving you the chance to try some truly historic dishes.
Alternatively, there’s Seafire Steakhouse and Bar for those who want their steaks fresh and hot. Watch the chefs cook your choice of meat to your liking before selecting your preferred condiments and sides for a complete meal.
Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
|Kid’s Club, Private Cinema, Infinity Pool, Spa
|Mondays - Sundays: 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM
Found on the crescent at The Palm, the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is another luxurious villa with a great view for you to stay at.
Their rooms boast an elegant design complete with lounge access, Turkish-inspired interior design and landscaping, and number of fancy dining spots. Of course, they also have some really nice pools for swimming as well.
The villa’s infinity pool is quite massive, stretching back around 31 metres while having a 59 metre edge. The view blends seamlessly with the nearby sea and the palm trees lining the view gives one the impression of a tropical lagoon.
It’s definitely a great place to exercise your swimming legs as you go from edge to edge.
Visitors with kids don’t have to worry about the pool being too large and overwhelming. There’s the Sinbad’s KiDS club for them to try out while the adults swim and browse around the nearby beach and amenities.
Staff are also available to help out and bring you what you need as you swim, which really hammer home the luxury vacation vibes of the villa. There’s even a nearby jacuzzi once you’re done swimming the wide and long pool.
Visitors can access the beach and the pool for around AED 260 but it doesn’t include kid’s club access as well as food and drink so expect to spend a lot more for the whole experience.
We recommend booking early though, if you’re interested. Availability depends on how busy the hotel is after all.
Where to Find Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
There’s plenty of luxurious amenities to be found in the villa. For example, the Talise Ottoman Spa is among the largest in the Middle East, reaching approximately 8,200 square metres and boasting around 42 treatment rooms.
Within this spa, you can also try out the 24-carat gold chainmail facial with Margy’s Monte Carlo, which is followed by an Arabian gold Hammam and argan oil massage for a whopping AED 25,000.
Otherwise, you can just soothe your hunger pangs inside the many restaurants along the corridor. The Sultan’s Lounge for example, features many light, international cuisines like kebabs, lamb, and salmon, perfect for an afternoon snack.

A stay at the luxurious villa should cost you around AED 6,000. On the other hand, cocktails range from AED 200 to AED 600 at the restaurant especially if you want to enjoy your drinks at the poolside.
It’s a great place to knock off both fine dining and swimming off your travel bucket list so if you have the money to spare for both, we recommend just checking in at the Mandarin Oriental here at Jumeirah.

Plenty of pools and destinations offer an amazing view of iconic landmarks like the Burj Khalifa. At the infinity pool at SAL, you get an even more close-up view as the pool is located at the footsteps of the Burj Al Arab itself.
This saltwater, adults-only, infinity pool is amazing for swimming and for taking pictures as you get a worm’s eye view of the iconic building on one hand, and a breathtaking shot of the sea on the other side.
The pool is quite long, reaching up to 100-metres and is located just at the terrace of this sail-shaped hotel. Other amenities near the pool include some lounge beds, umbrellas, and a shaded bar in case you need to cool off from the sun for a while.
For more private fare, you get to choose from three different cabana options. The Panoramic Cabana is just a few steps away from the infinity pool, allowing you to relax in relative comfort and quiet.
There’s also the Royal Cabana and the Luxury Cabana, which grants you even more access to different amenities, including a pop-up restaurant where you can grab some small bites, fresh fruits, and even bottles of bubbly.
Visitors with kids aren’t allowed in the infinity pool and the cabanas normally. They do get access to the freshwater kid’s pool nearby, so they don’t miss out on the summer fun!
Pool access starts at AED 800, while cabanas range from AED 7,000 to AED 10,000 for a group of six people. It’s definitely a nice stop to check out for when you’re already staying at or visiting this iconic destination.

Exhausted guests can also check out the Talise Spa for some luxury rest and relaxation. Here, you can get a relaxing facial, body massage, and even some contouring done on your legs for that healthy look.
Finally, you can eat some immaculately-prepared food at the Al Muntaha; a Michelin-starred venue featuring French and Italian dishes. We find that it’s very nice to eat fresh Sea Bass and Salmon here while you enjoy a view of the nearby sea.

Offering a fantastic view of the Burj Khalifa at just about every vantage point in the building, The Address Sky View also hosts a cool infinity pool on top of their iconic Sky Deck.

A stay at the hotel starts around AED 1,500, granting you access to most amenities already. If you’re staying at this place, then the infinity pool should be an amazing facility to try before you check out of the building.
Where to Find The Address – Sky View
Being near some amazing destinations and amenities means there’s plenty to do inside and outside the Sky View. For example, the spa inside the hotel is quite huge at over 1,400 square metres, giving you plenty of organic and natural relaxation zones.
Outside, you’re only a few minutes’ walk away from the massive Dubai Mall. A small city in and of itself, you can get both the standard amenities here like dining spots and stores as well as entertainment like an ice rink and an aquarium and underwater zoo.
You’re not far from the Dubai Creek as well. In our opinion, just walking and talking here at night while enjoying the view of the nearby water makes for an amazing and intimate evening with friends or even a partner during our stay.
