The Club Executive is without a doubt my favourite pool area in Dubai. Situated in front of the Beit al Bahar Villas of the Jumeirah Beach Resort right on the private stretch of Jumeirah Beach reserved for guests of the Jumeirah resorts. The pool is for exclusive use of those guests staying at the Burj Al Arab, Beit al Bahar and Jumeirah Beach Hotel in an executive or premium leisure room or above.

The result of this exclusivity is a peaceful environment where finding a lounger is never an issue. The pool is large, freeform with many features; jacuzzi pits, lounging bed area, swim up bar, infinity wall and rock sculptures with fountains. To add privacy to the pool and lounging areas there is a wealth of vegetation and beautiful flowers.

The whole pool area leads onto a beautifully maintained beach area with padded loungers, relaxing bean bags and showers. The restroom facilities for the are located in the adjacent beach restaurant, Villa Beach. These toilets are beautifully kept, with a huge range of products – from vanity kits to moisturiser.

Service around the pool is impeccable, with a pool assistant to show you to a lounger and lay out a selection of towels; and provide you with an ice box of water, cold towels and ice. Without exception all staff were courteous, helpful and friendly, even remembering my room number and name after day one. An extensive food and beverage menu is available for service at your lounger or on a small dining area with umbrellas.

I sampled the chicken burger, which was served with a generous portion of fries and a fresh salad. Highly recommended; especially with a blended chocolate/coffee iced drink to cool yourself in the mid-day sun.

The Club Executive Pool is accessed via buggy from the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Burj Al Arab. Those guests staying in the Beit al Bahar Villas will find the entrance opposite the reception to their villa complex.
