Why book Nikki Beach Dubai
When looking out from the beach at Nikki Beach Dubai, you could be anywhere in the world. There’s not much of a giveaway that you’re in Dubai – bar the flicker of the World Islands on the horizon – just soaring palm trees, lapping warm ocean and white sand. The sprawling grounds comprise a luxury resort, peaceful and whitewashed with the smell of coconuts – but also the Dubai iteration of its world-famous Nikki Beach Club – the perfect personification of the hedonistic brand and one of the best beach clubs in the city. Those familiar with the brand – and its outposts in Ibiza, Santorini and Marbella, to name a few – will recognise the same retro-futuristic white design, the sunken loungers, large, shallow pale blue party pool encircled by loungers and cabanas with billowing white drapes. That, and the magnums of rose perennially dolled out, the sounds of the DJS, live music and an elevated party vibe. Nikki Beach Dubai encapsulates the brand’s carefree spirit of endless summer – and all of its guests are welcomed into this shiny world.
The view and location
The beach club’s location on the still-in-development manmade Pearl Jumeira island means it’s a little of the way but well worth it for the signature, energetic, fabulous Nikki Beach vibe and endless, unobstructed views of the Arabian Gulf and white sand beach. That said, stroll onto the beach and look back at the club, and you’ll see the most perfect skyline view of Downtown Dubai – the Burj Khalifa in all its glory. At sunset, this is one of the most beautiful views you can see in the UAE.
Chic, elevated, Mediterranean-meets-Miami, yet with any anything-goes party-loving vibe, Nikki Beach Dubai is a place for those wanting to dress to impress, party the day away and celebrate life. The music is loud – so come with the view to sunbathe, eat, drink and party over converse. There’s plenty of space in the huge central pool and in the indoor-outdoor restaurant, and guests feel comfortable floating around in their swimsuits or cover-up.
Bright, white, minimalist, clean, retro-futuristic – typical of tNikki Beach venues across the globe – with the signature pale blue pool and billowing white drapes of the cabanas. There are plenty of lounging spots, from classic sunbeds – plush and thick and extra spacious – to day beds, covered cabanas, stilted wooden cabanas on the beach, and the most luxurious – the private pool cabanas. These come with their own – delightfully deep – plunge pool, day bed and wrap-around seating area, the per cent spot for a hideaway with friends and ordering platters of sushi and Nikki Beach rose.
Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai is known for its exceptional food – its dedication to sourcing local and for the freshest catch – and this translates into the beach club. Guests can dine in the restaurant – breezy, Greek Island theme where flip flops and cover-ups are welcome – or at their day bed or cabana. There are all the great spritzey cocktails, and the crisp Nikki Beach rosé is a firm favourite, grown in its own vineyard in Provence and available on tap. The menu ranges from fresh platters of sushi, crudo and tartare to delicious crispy prawn tempura cala and zingy salads – everything you want to eat while enjoying a sun-drenched day at a beach club. Guests can also make the most of the playful swim-up bar, allowing them to enjoy a drink while wallowing in the cool waters.
Nikki Beach Dubai offers the ultimate chic party beach club experience, popular with both tourists and residents alike. Guests are guaranteed a good time to be transported to the likes of Santorini or Marbella while also enjoying the best of Dubai – impeccable, attentive service, endless sunny days. For a stand-out beach day – one that offers an actual beautiful outstretching white sand beach and the feeling of eternal summer – book a beach at Nikki Beach Dubai.
