This is truly a sight for sore eyes hunting for an oasis in Dubai’s summer. Barasti Beach club has given a lush, green update to their pool and deck with the Barasti Summer Sanctum. And boy, has the long-standing Dubai Marina beach club gone all in! Instead of an oasis, Dubai’s getting an entire rainforest.
All through the summer months, Barasti’s pool and deck will be covered by a tropical, rainforest-style canopy! So, if splashing about in the clear cool waters of a rainforest rock pool sat high on your travel bucket list, you can, maybe, cross it out.
A canopy of overhanging leaves has been set up over the pool and deck area to cast a shade that will shield revelers from the sun. Aztec-themed columns and statues are scattered around the venue, poking out from behind palm fronds.
To stay true to the rainforest theme, water sprinklers have been cleverly hidden amidst all the faux foliage to shower you with rains intermittently. It is, after all, called a rain forest for a reason.
Entry to this visually stunning verdant haven is absolutely free, so we reckon it is going to be a popular watering hole for all the city’s party animals seeking an escape from the concrete jungle.
Much like an actual rainforest, you can expect to be surrounded by the cacophony here too, but instead of the musical bird call of tropical species, you’ll be answering, and dancing, to the musical calls of some of the city’s hottest DJs.
Depending on which day of the week you decide to visit the Barasti Summer Sanctum, the speakers will be belting out anything from chill house beats to club bangers from the 90s and 2000s. It’s guaranteed to get you to the forest floor, oops, dancefloor, we mean.
We have a wild hunch that summer 2022 is going to feature a slew of Instagram posts featuring the Barasti Summer Sanctum as the backdrop. Time to go purchase a leopard-print swimming outfit, then…
