The 5 Best Things to Do at a Beach Club in Abu Dhabi

Relaxing in and exploring Abu Dhabi’s amazing beaches is one of the best things you can do in this city. But there is one thing better than simply going to the beach here: spending a day at one of the top-rated beach clubs.

The best beach resort club in Abu Dhabi offers members and guests various facilities, services, and activities that can help them relax, have fun or work out. By spending a day here, you will be able to forget your worries, experience mental clarity, and recharge. And once you leave, you will be ready to face a new day and new challenges.

If you’re wondering what you can do at a beach club in Abu Dhabi, here’s a rundown of the excellent things you can do:

1.    Relax

The most popular exclusive beach clubs in Abu Dhabi have a number of cabanas that will allow you to relax by the pool or beach. If you choose the right one to go to, you can do both in just one spot.

The Saadiyat Beach Club, for instance, has a number of cabanas surrounding their pristine pool. The cabanas seem to be floating above the pool giving them the appearance of small islands where you can enjoy some privacy as you get some much-needed R&R.

These cabanas, by the way, will give you excellent views of the Arabian Gulf. They are near the beach as well, which means you can head down to the coastline where you will also find several cabanas and loungers. If you want to be nearer to nature to experience peace and tranquility, take a short walk to the club’s private beach.

2.    Swim at the beach or pool

A trip to a beach club won’t be complete without taking a refreshing dip in the pool or beach.

Swim a lap or two in the pool or simply wet your feet by the poolside. In addition, you will have a hard time resisting the call of the cool, clear, and azure waters of the Arabian Gulf. If you’re ready to take a dip in the ocean water, head to the beach.

The Saadiyat Island, which houses many of Abu Dhabi’s well-known beach clubs, is home to dolphins and hawksbill turtles. If you come at the right time, you may get lucky and catch a glimpse of these magnificent sea creatures.

3.    Work out

If you want to burn those unhealthy calories or get some extra workout after a week of giving in to your cravings, you can do so at a beach club.

Many of Abu Dhabi’s exclusive beach clubs have fully-equipped gyms or fitness centers. They have the latest fitness equipment to ensure everyone will get the most of their time at the gym. These fitness centers have complete facilities as well to make everyone feel comfortable and refreshed after a tiring workout.

Additionally, there are many beach clubs that offer Pilates and yoga classes. If you prefer these kinds of practices or meditative exercises, find out and sign up for a class beforehand.

4.    Enjoy some well-deserved pampering

After working out or a long hour of day swimming, pamper yourself.

Most beach clubs have in-house spas, sauna and steam rooms. Book an appointment to get a massage and enjoy their other spa amenities.

The massage therapists in these facilities are qualified and trained to provide different types of massages. As such, you will be in the capable hands of professionals as you undergo an hour or more of your preferred massage technique.

The spa facilities are well-equipped and designed, offering a serene and peaceful ambiance. Because of this, you will definitely have no difficulties relaxing and forgetting about your worries temporarily.

5.    Indulge in great eats

Finally, you won’t be disappointed by the offerings of the in-house restaurants and lounges.

Each restaurant offers a diverse menu showcasing different cuisines. From appetizers to desserts, each dish is made of the finest and freshest ingredients. Without a doubt, you will be satisfied with each dish you order.

The restaurants and lounges also have a variety of cold and hot beverages to choose from. You can even have your drink delivered to your cabana or lounger if you don’t want to leave the pool or beach.

If you’re planning a getaway on your next holiday or you want to reward yourself this weekend, make a reservation at a beach club. You will love every minute you will spend here and you will definitely want to come back again and again.
