Hello beautiful mamas!
If you've been M.I.A like me, stuck somewhere between maneuvering nappies, picking up rice from the carpet or trying to cover the artwork of your tiny artist on the wall (with permanent marker!) I feel you!
Craving a bit of zen? Dreaming about salty hair, infinity pool and iced coffee? Imagining yourself somewhere where you don't need to carry tons of toys, towels and....have a sand free car after a beach day? I hear you!
Look no further ladies, here is the perfect solution for your new holiday (ish) life! It's called Privilee!
Privilee membership gives you unlimited access to some of Dubai's, Abu Dhabi's and Fujairah's finest hotel beach clubs, pools, kids clubs and gyms. Add to that discounts at restaurants, bars and spas.
Now let's do the math. A daily access to a hotel beach club on weekend costs from 300 to 500 AED. Privilee card costs 499 AED per month when paying annually or 599 AED when paying monthly. Whaaaat? Yes, I know. Massive savings! You can literally spend 7 days a week in your preferred hotel all day long! And you could bring up to 2 kiddos up to 15 years old and also get a guest card for your family.
Since I've got this card, I dare to say there's definitely a Dubai before and Dubai after Privilee.
If you're a sunshine mama like me, here is a list of the best baby friendly hotels you should definitely visit with your Privilee card.
The St. Regis Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi is my absolute winner. The location, white sand, kids pools and the ultimate holiday feel. The only negative thing is the one hour trip to Abu Dhabi so we can't hang out there every day.
Club Mina, Dubai (Le Meridien and Westin Mina Seyahi) is our number one Dubai. Two shaded kids pools, baby club, sand toys, cabanas, coconuts and cooling treats such as jelly. All the photos were taken here, as this club is just 5 minutes drive from our home and we LOVE it here.
Sofitel the Palm, Dubai is extremely baby friendly. It has 2 pools especially for small kids and a great kids club with disco at 6 pm. Lots of palm trees and it feels like you're chilling on a Polynesian island.
Waldorf Astoria, Dubai is a hotel with a tranquil vibe, with a very nice pool and it is very welcoming for families.
Fairmont on the Palm is our top place for a croissant with a soy latte with a picture perfect view of Dubai Marina skyline. Nina loves to play in the sand plus everyone here is super nice so we always feel welcome. The kids club has lots of activities from a splash park and arts and crafts. The only downside is the the ongoing construction work.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored article and I really think that this card is the bomb. There is no catch, just pure bliss. If you are a, beach mermaid with babies, foodie or a gym junkie this card is definitely for you.

Happy Privileeging and see you on the beach!:)
