The Wet Deck pool snakes right across the seventh floor of the W Hotel in Al Habtoor City. Sleek cabanas are dotted around the sides, and there’s a raised Jacuzzi, a bar, a DJ booth and a lounge area. It’s usually got a laidback vibe, and you can often catch rooftop yoga classes there too. But do check ahead if you’re after peace and quiet as sometimes party events such as Audio Tonic and Par-TEA by Candypants take over.
