Dubai's Most Luxurious Beach Club Now Allows Non-Members… But It Will Cost You
How much would spend for the ultimate relaxing day of catching a few rays in between refreshing dips? A couple of hundred dirhams? Nothing perhaps?
Well, one Dubai hotel is charging a shocking sum to allow sun-seekers to enjoy their facilities but is it really worth it? Burj Al Arab's The Terrace opened in May, with it estimated that anyone hoping to use the beach club would have to fork out a whopping AED100,000 to bask in the warmth and use their stunning infinity pool, air conditioned cabanas and butler service.
Now, for the first time, the "7-star hotel" is letting non-members in on a day rate. Until the end of September those wanting to use the beach club can pay AED1,800 for one of 24 cabanas on weekdays but it's even more expensive at AED 2,200 on weekends.
Meanwhile, one of the eight Royal Cabana rate is AED3,000 Sunday to Thursday and AED, 3,750 on Fridays and Saturdays.
It may seem like a high price to pay for a sunbathing sesh for most people, however the luxury cabanas are decked out with entertainment systems and a rotating amenity cycle, plus the higher end ones come with a private bathroom, shower area and veranda too.
They're dubbing it the world's most luxurious day retreat experience and dining is supplied by Californian spot, Scape Restaurant and Bar. However, you'll have to pay up even more cash to eat and drink as menu items aren't included in the packages.
