There are life’s little luxuries, and then there’s full-blown, Burj Al Arab-level luxuries.

Remember the new Terrace that opened in May at the iconic Dubai hotel? Well they’ve now opened their doors to the general public, who can pay to access the sparkling new extension.

If you’re unsure as to what the Terrace is, it’s the triangular portion behind the Burj Al Arab with the two large infinity pools.

This isn’t some Groupon pool-access deal though. A day spent kicking it on the Terrace will set you back a cool Dhs1,800 (and that’s a minimum).

However, that does grant you access to your own private cabana, beach, butlers, bars and restaurants, as well as the aforementioned pools.

The cabanas are pretty neat too – kitted out with a coffee machine, mini-bar, dining and spa menus, sound system, television, air-conditioning and sunbeds.

If you opt for the Royal option, you get all that, plus a bathroom with shower and a private veranda.

How much does it cost?

Cabana (weekday): Dhs1,800
Cabana (weekend): Dhs2,200
Royal Cabana (weekday): Dhs3,000
Royal Cabana (weekend): Dhs3,750

Cabanas can be booked on a full-day basis from 8am to 6pm.

The Burj Al Arab’s infinity pools are on point

Previously, you’d have to be a guest of the Burj Al Arab if you wanted to spend a day on the Terrace – and the per night room rate are pretty terrifying for your bank balance, think Dhs5,000 up to more than Dhs30,000 for the fanciest of suites.

If you are willing to splash out for pool day, then you’ll have to move fast – these rates are only valid until September 30.
