The summer heat in the Middle East is hitting a new level, with humidity at 98% and temperatures of 49 degrees celsius, its essential to look after yourself. From drinking 2 litres of water a day, applying high factor sun lotions and making sure your clothing is breathable, as well as avoiding the heat from 12 noon until 3.30pm if possible.
All of the above is necessary but doesn’t exactly sound fun and there are definitely plenty of fun ways too cool off in the heat too, after all we’re talking about Dubai. So whether you’re working 9-5 or have the whole day to yourself, cooling off by a pool is always idyllic, that’s why #TeamCoco have rounded up our top 5 pools in Dubai, with incredible views, of course.

Dubai Marina, the worlds largest man-made marina, boasting an array of shops, housing, restaurants, bars, beach clubs and hotels.

Situated on an artificial island on the Arabian Gulf this 7 star hotel has been an icon of Dubai since 1999.
