Nothing more timely than a treasure of information about Privilee flashing in front of me on a random day last week when I was scratching my head on where to take the kids for the weekend. The weather in Dubai is getting better and better and that means we’d like to go back to enjoying the outdoors! So happy with my new Privilee card – it’s more pool and beach time for us!
WHAT IS PRIVILEE?
Privilee is an exclusive membership club giving you access to the most pristine private beaches and luxurious leisure facilities at fabulous resorts, hotels and beach clubs across Dubai.
Not only that, but also huge discounts at a wide selection of award-winning restaurants and preferential rates at the member hotels.
A membership with Privilee lets you enjoy unlimited access to beach clubs, spas, gyms and sports facilities at the following Dubai hotels and resorts (current list, many to be added in the future):
- Double Tree by Hilton
- Dubai Polo Club
- Fairmont The Palm
- Habtoor Grand
- Grand Hyatt
- Waldorf Astoria
- Kempinski HotelPalm Jumeirah
- The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi
- Le Meridien Dubai Mina Seyahi
- Shangrila SZR
- Riva Beach Club
- The Address Dubai Marina
Newly added, in Abu Dhabi:
- Saadiyat Beach Club
- St. Regis Abu Dhabi
- Ritz Carlton Grand Canal
I think whoever thought of this brilliant idea is a genius! And so perfect for those who want to enjoy Dubai’s luxurious offers and not sacrifice family or personal budget.
We first used our Privilee card at the Grand Hyatt last weekend and the kids enjoyed the massive pool area with dedicated pool for kids, complete with mini slides and lots of facilities for fun water play (even I enjoyed it a little too much).
Considering that the access to enter the pool area on a weekend/public holiday is AED200/day for adults and AED100/day for each child (x 2 kids for me), we could’ve spent AED400 but got free access thanks to our Privilee card.
And that is only by visiting one of the hotels in one weekend! Another visit to a beach club next weekend and the card pays off by itself.
Didn’t I tell you this membership is awesome? In case you are wondering:
Are there any limitations on how often I can use my Privilee card?
No, you can visit the beach clubs, spas and gyms at all partner hotels all day, every day, on weekdays and weekends. Now you do the Math on how this gives value for money for your weekend getaways! Oh, and you can also go to the beach clubs, pools or gyms EVERYDAY if your schedule allows you to!
A Privilee membership is a single membership that starts at AED599. Each membership covers for one adult member and depending on the hotel, up to 2 children under the age of 15. You can contact Privilee directly to inquire about other membership plans that suits you (you’ll be surprised the prices are too good to be true).
There’s no affiliate link here – I just really want to spread information about this wonderful membership and together make our weekends a little luxurious!
TIPS TO MAKE THE MOST OUT YOUR PRIVILEE MEMBERSHIP
- Call first to check availability (the hotel can’t take reservations)
- Come very early to get sun beds at the exact location you want to
- Spots are limited for Privilee members in some resorts, so you might think of going early if it is the weekend or public holiday
Parting words about Privilee: I wish I’d known this sooner! But better late than never. I can’t wait to hang out at all these awesome and cool luxury places with the kids using our Privilee membership.
ALSO – Since Privilee gives you not only access to the beach clubs and pools at resorts but also gym access, I would recommend Privilee instead of a gym membership if you are not the type of person that commits to one gym – plus on top of that you get pool/beach access! How’s that for motivation?
So here’s to more cool hang-outs for lazy days in the sun, fine dining options and a rejuvenating break from the hustle and bustle of the city thanks to Privilee!
If you have any questions about how to be a member, you can contact them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form at their website. You can also shoot me an email and I’ll try to answer as much as I can based on my experience being a Privilee member.
