12 Lavish Dubai Hotels with Private Pools

by Dubai Travel Planner

Dubai has certainly earned itself quite the reputation as a luxury vacation destination, and what could be more luxurious and indulgent than having your own private swimming pool in Dubai!

A heads up – most private villa pools in Dubai don’t come cheap! These are definite luxury hotels for those special occasions but they truly will make for one of the most magical Dubai experiences.

We have rounded up our 12 favourite Dubai hotels with private pools across the city (and the desert!)

Heading to Abu Dhabi – we have a guide to Abu Dhabi private pools too!

FIVE Jumeirah Village

Only opening in September 2019, FIVE Jumeirah Village (sister hotel to popular clubbing hotel FIVE Palm Jumeirah) became an instant hit on the party scene, largely because of the fact this high circular rise hotel has – wait for it – 269 private swimming pools!

No longer a luxury reserved just for the penthouse suite, FIVE offers one-bedroom suites with terrace jacuzzis through to two and four-bedroom apartment options with private swimming pools. And unlike many of their villa-style counterparts, FIVE Jumeirah Village comes in at a more manageable price range for that special treat.
