Nothing says exclusivity like taking over part of a reclaimed island off the coast. And that’s exactly what has happened with the arrival of the 12th Nikki Beach club and the third resort of its kind in the world. Set on 400 metres of private beach on the as yet unfinished Pearl Jumeirah (right next to Four Seasons Resort Dubai on Jumeirah Beach Road), when complete, the entire resort will be one tenth of the size of The Dubai Mall. White is very much the colour of choice; beds, chairs, walkways, and, of course, white sandy beaches. The venue even called its launch event “White Party”. Quite what they say about the quality of tan you’ll top up, we’re not sure. But top it up you will. Nikki Beach is a huge space, allowing you to get whatever sort of experience you want from it. A little dance? Stay close to the pool and nearby DJ booth. Kick back and listen to the water wash up on the shore? The beach is also spacious enough to find that little nook of privacy.
