Family fun at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi

There's nothing better than a relaxing family day out by the pool at one of Dubai's many luxe hotels. And Le Meridien Mina Seyahi's is one of the best, equipped not only with a dedicated children’s pool, but four other pools and a private beach for adults and older children. The hotel also operates an exclusive Kids’ Club for guests and non-guests between 9am and 6pm, entitling you to a few stolen hours of child-free respite. Don't worry about exposing your children to the summer sun, these year-round shaded pools will keep your little one's skin well protected. 


Ultimate relaxation at Madinat Jumeirah

Another hotel that offers children both protection in the pool and exciting activities is Madinat Jumeirah. A longstanding Dubai favourite and still regarded as one of the city’s best luxury all-rounders, this hotel complex is a hit with kids and adults alike. Young explorers can find a jam-packed schedule of activities at the Sinbad’s Kids Club, while parents can lounge at a beach cabana in total peace, while being waited on hand and foot by first-class staff.

Infinity and beyond at Burj Al Arab

Picture-perfect luxury at One&Only The Palm

The activity-packed Kids Only programme and guided water-skiing, swimming and tennis lessons will keep children entertained.
