If there is one thing that is not lacking in Dubai, it is the number of swimming pools. For a country which is hot all year round, laying by the pool is the most popular pastime. As the daily temperature reaches over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, everyone looks forward to taking a dip no matter what time of day it is. The following list of recommended swimming pools are renowned for their luxurious settings as well as their serviced amenities.

1 The One & Only Royal Mirage

The swimming pool at the One & Only Royal Mirage is a place of wonders. Located in the Arabian Court, it is surrounded by fountains, luscious greenery, and dramatic Arabian architecture. With views that overlook the Palm Island Bay, this is without doubt one of the most enchanting swimming pools in all of Dubai.

This Dubai hotel has a total of five swimming pools but the one we recommend is outdoor and close to the white sands of the Jumeirah Beach.  The pool's curvilinear shape with small palm trees located on miniature islands recreates a tropical landscape. A poolside bar serves cocktails and light meals while you bask in the desert sun. If you want a break from the pool try the water sports area for something a bit more recreational and adventurous.

Still renowned as the world's most extravagant hotel, the indoor heated swimming pool is modeled on those originating from ancient Middle East civilization complete with mosaic columns colorfully lit to echo the hotel's interior.
