5 Reasons This Club Is The Best Place To Unwind In Dubai

There's no debating it

Stress – you’re either experiencing it right now or you’ve felt it in the recent past. If not, please tell us which planet are you on because things here get pretty rough.

Anyway, we’re not going to harp on about its impact on our everyday life. C’mon we’re not medics. Instead, we’ll tell you an easy way to get rid of it. Or shall we say an easy place to wipe it out completely. Yep, that’s possible.

If you’ve heard of Jumeirah Islands Club…high-five. If not, there’s no escaping this handy information. Located in Jumeirah Islands (pretty obvs with the name) it’s your go-to place when the going gets tough.

We’ll get straight to the point with five reasons why you’ll love it.

1. Its leisure facilities are on point

These days, almost every person you meet seems to be bitten by the fitness bug. Most say it’s their way to relax and get the much-needed ‘me time’ at the end of a long, tiring day. So when you have a place offering all facilities including a gym, aerobics and yoga studio, do you need to go anywhere else? Nah, we don’t think so!

2. You’ll never be hungry (or thirsty) here

If you’re looking to grab a quick meal, the Glasshouse has you sorted. The casual dining space, that's recently been renovated, also offers al fresco seating by the pool. Think British favourites alongside varied cuisines including Mexican, Indian and Arabic with a side of JLT skyline views. The interior is bright, light and airy making the Glasshouse a perfect place for any occasion be it a family dinner, business lunch or a special event. Whether you choose to seat yourself indoors or outdoors, be assured the service or ambience won’t disappoint. (Cheeky bit of info: there’s an option to puff away your worries as shisha is available outdoors).

And if you are more of a pub lover, they got you covered with Barrel 12 - think an urban sports bistro. Tucked above the Glasshouse restaurant, this hidden gem offers diners a variety of options from its tasty gastro pub menu with frequent drinks promotions (those are sure to make you happy). The latest sporting events are shown on large TVs, and if that doesn't take your fancy, you have the gorgeous sunset over JLT skyline and views of the lake from Barrel 12’s terrace to keep you going.

3. The chilled pool will make you love summers

Dubai’s summers can be harsh (at times) but it’s just the excuse you need to spend hours lounging by the pool at the sun deck. Forgive yourself for thinking you’re at a holiday resort with the laidback vibe and superior service. It might be the perfect place to don your swimsuits and work that tan. Don’t forget to tote your favourite book though.

4. Gluttony is understandable here

There’s nothing quite satisfying as a good meal and the offers they’re launching over here promise just that. From the upcoming Traditional Roast to the Fishy Friday lunch special (where you will get your fix of salmon, cod and sole) or the Friday night BBQ (think spit fire meats and BBQ burgers and hotdogs) or the steak night, there is a meal to suit every palate. You will need to try it to believe it!

5. There’s something fun for everyone

There’s no need to worry about your little ones. They’ll be entertained too. In addition to a cool children’s play area, the venue also hosts movie nights for them and an arts and crafts station on the weekends. They can watch some amazing films on the big screen while munching on treats such as popcorn and fries along with a main meal (options include burger, hotdog, pizza or chicken nuggets). Adults needn’t sulk. There’s something equally enjoyable lined up for you – the quiz nights. Bring out your competitive side, but not before you place your order for dishes such as chargrilled prawns with garlic butter, Margarita pizza, beer battered onion rings and even glazed chicken wings.
