Well, Dubai’s best kept secret is finally out. I can’t keep it to myself any longer! Privilee is an exclusive membership club giving you access to the most pristine private beaches and luxurious leisure facilities at no less than TWELVE fabulous resorts, hotels and beach clubs across Dubai. Not forgetting huge discounts at a wide selection of award-winning restaurants and preferential rates at the member hotels. Since joining I’ve been revelling in the guilty pleasure of feeling like I’m on holiday every weekend as I relax with the family at yet another 5 star resort! Indulgent weekends at The Sofitel Dubai Palm Jumeirah are standard in our family now – and affordable.
In a city where daily access to a beach club will usually set you back upwards of 350dhs per day (per person!) a monthly fee of AED 599/month when you pay monthly and just AED 499/month for members with an annual payment plan is a bargain not to be missed! If you opt for the annual payment plan, you will receive 2 complimentary guest cards - weekly passes perfect for those with visiting friends and family.
During the week I’ll take the kids after school for a play on the beach at The Fairmont the Palm and not have to worry about heaving a huge bag of toys and towels along with me as of course the beach club provides everything we need. Best of all it means no more hoovering the inside of our car out after carting sandy kids home from an afternoon at the beach as we clean off in the hotel facilities – and usually have a splash in the pool and a pizza on the terrace for a treat too (making for a cheap kids tea with the generous F&B discounts afforded by Privilee membership). Most resorts offer free parking or free valet to Privilee members (check their website for details as each venue is slightly different).
For those who prefer to party their weekends away, Privilee membership gives you and 4 guests 15% off F&B at Embassy Dubai in Grosvenor House and 20% discount at XL Beach Club. Log onto their website to see the full range of discounts available at Dubai’s best restaurants and bars.
Privilee offers single memberships only which covers access for one adult and up to three children. Privilee partners include: Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa, Fairmont The Palm, Shangri-La Hotel, Habtoor Grand Hotel, Le Royal Meridien, Conrad Hotel, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, Media One Hotel, Double Tree by Hilton, JBR, Grand Hyatt and Riva Beach Club.
So…. fancy spending your weekends sipping cocktails next to a temperature controlled infinity pool, or hunting for starfish on the beach with the kids? Perhaps beating your partner at tennis or working up a sweat in a fully equipped gym is more your game? Or why not pamper yourself with a rejuvenating treatment in a world class spa? With unparalleled five-star service and exceptional culinary experiences, a Privilee membership encompasses the best of life in Dubai. There really is no other membership club to beat this one! What are you waiting for??
