If you’re familiar with long-standing community hotspot Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse, you might not recognise it on your next visit. The 4,000 square metre space has been completely renovated, now offering a pool, restaurant, pub, salon and gym under one roof. The large pool is lined with bright orange sun loungers, giving a 360 degree view of the surrounding lakes and super-size villas. In the distance is Dubai Marina’s cluster of skyscrapers, and the lake trickles down a pebble slope creating an instantly relaxing vibe.
