Saturday DJ pool parties are back at this Abu Dhabi desert island
Boat transfers included…
The popular pool parties at Abu Dhabi’s Al Maya Island & Resort have made a triumphant return, and we’re excited — because there ain’t no rave, like a rave where you can bathe.
Going down every Saturday between 10am and 8.30pm, tickets are priced at Dhs250 which includes Dhs100 of food and beverage credit and your boat transfers. Although ladies can get in free before midday, also for Saturdays, there’s a strict policy that all day guests must be over 21.
This weekend, on Saturday May 7, there’s a belated Cinco de Mayo special — with a pinata station, tacos and ‘Mexican beverages’, but it has sadly already sold out. No Juan else can book. But the great news is, standard service resumes the following weekend.
All hands on decks
