The good people at Nasimi seem insistent that we stay outdoors for the summer – if they’re not lathering us up at foam parties, they’re throwing enormous pool-based events at the Atlantis Hotel. This Friday heralds the first ‘official’ pool party of the summer season (they threw one in May, just for laughs). Guests are encouraged to rock up and grab a sun lounger early and frolic in the pool until sunset, when they’ll emerge to sounds of some of Dubai’s top DJs. To ensure no untoward scantily-clad skullduggery occurs, there’ll be no swimming after 8pm. Still, the unfailing popularity of these parties will still ensure that the poolside will be packed.
