Dubai has some of the most stunning hotels you could ever imagine, and better yet, many of them have infinity pools.
There’s no experience like a breathtaking dip in a pool high above the city, looking down on the stunning coastline and the city lights.
I’ve put together this list of my favorite hotels with the best rooftop pools in Dubai so that you can find your perfect escape on your UAE vacation.
