Arguably the prettiest location in Dubai: think white cabanas, dream catchers and draping floral arrangements that make you feel like you’ve left the desert. There’s a solid a la carte menu of Mediterranean food, plus a Saturday brunch menu that’s worth the trip to the end of the Palm. It might not be the biggest pool in Dubai, but there’s a luxurious feel about it that makes it great for a special occasion.
