Luxe beach for less
Summer might be hot and sticky, but it has its good points too. Like cut-price access to the world-class beach and spa facilities of the gorgeous Monte-Carlo Beach club in Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi. The super-exclusive club has slashed its rates for the season, with a single day pass dropping from Dh250 to Dh175 for weekday access, plus complimentary day passes for children. Weekend access is down to Dh525 per couple, and kids also get free entry to the children’s club. Until September 15, see www. montecarlobeachclub.ae.
