Did  you know that according to a study* of more than 2,000 mothers, most mums said they only get a paltry 17 minutes' of 'me-time' to themselves per day? Riva Beach Club on The Palm is hoping to rectify this sorry situation with its 'Mum's the Word' deal every Thursday morning, whereby mothers are granted free pool access, as well as a free pastry, with every coffee bought.

While you can bring your child along if you like, the idea is that you put aside a bit of time to indulge in reading a book or chatting with a friend while relaxing on the beautiful pool terrace and enjoying the stunning sea views.  It's usually at least Dh100 for a day pass to the pool at this lovely spot, which is already a firm favourite with Palm-based mummies, and this deal is sure to grab the attention of Dubai mums far and wide.

Valid from 8.30am to 12pm (perfect for grabbing some me-time between school or nursery drop-off and pick-up) every Thursday for the foreseeable future.
