The 100m infinity pool gazes out towards the sea and there’s also a family freshwater pool. Sal’s airy white interiors contribute to a setting that is relaxed and sophisticated. Aside from the striking Burj Al Arab and sea views, the club’s restaurant offers a European menu served from the alfresco terrace.
