5 of Dubai's most Instagrammable pools
From stunning skyline views to a hanging chandelier, be sure to snap a selfie at one of these Insta-worthy pools…
With the balmy weather well on its way, we’re all about sunning ourselves in the pool on the weekend. And if it’s a poolside spot with instant ‘gram gratification you’re looking for, look no further.
Here are 5 of Dubai’s most Instagrammable pools.
Address Sky View
The view that has been dominating our Instagram feeds recently belongs to the sky-high infinity pool, located on the 54th floor of Address Sky View. It’s directly adjacent to the brand new restaurant CÉ LA VI, so you don’t need to be a hotel guest to get the shot on your ‘Gram. If you are staying at the hotel, you’ll be able to enjoy the view from a chic white cabana or one of the underwater day beds.
Address Sky View, Downtown Dubai, reserved for guests of the hotel or spa. Tel: (04) 873 8888. addresshotels.com
W Dubai – The Palm
You’ve no less than 12 pools to choose from if you head to W Dubai – The Palm for a pool day. The archipelago of swimming pools are various lengths and depths, and are interrupted by patches of grass where you’ll find loungers neatly lined up for those wishing to brave the heat for some tan-topping. As well as in-water loungers, perfect for capturing that ‘gram shot, you can hire the shaded cabanas for a premium.

A Day at The Terrace, Burj Al Arab
When it comes to experiencing life poolside in the most luxurious fashion, The Terrace at the Burj Al Arab has to be one of the best in the world.

It’s Dhs980 for two people which include a three-course lunch at Scape and access to pool facilities.
