4 Indoor swimming pools in Dubai



If there’s one sentence that makes us question someone’s sanity during summer it’s, “Are you coming to the pool?” Rocketing temperatures make swimming more of a torture mechanism than a workout with the sun beaming its almighty rays.

But there is a hidden trove of indoor pools in Dubai, perfect for those who like to relax, or put in some serious lengths. Front crawl, butterfly or doggy paddle your way through this lot…

Talise Ottoman Spa, Zabeel Saray Hotel
The indoor salt water swimming pool at Talise Ottoman Spa is flanked by beautiful Turkish-style alcoves ideal for relaxing in. The pool is set-up for those who like to chill, but it’s also big enough to get some exercise.
Details: AED250 for use of the pool and spa facilities. Male and female areas are separate.

Surrounded by glass windows, and full of natural light, it’s the next best thing to actually being outside. There’s even an underwater sound system to keep you going while you’re doing laps of this 20-metre pool.
Details: AED300 on weekdays and AED400 on weekends.

Burj Al Arab
This place has two indoor pools but, being a seven star hotel, both of them are infinity and located a whopping 150 metres above the Arabian Gulf. Enjoy 180 views of Dubai’s skyline from either the mixed-pool or female only pool.
Details: Pool use is reserved for hotel guest and spa members. It’s got to be a bit exclusive, doesn’t it?

Hamdan Sports Complex
Serious athletes, length lovers and exercise enthusiasts, this is one for you. The swimming pool at Hamdan Sports Complex is huge – 50 metres to be precise – and is open for public use, competitions, and events.
