The Dubai Ladies Club is not just another club.

A place not only to satisfy women’s existing needs, but to enhance and encourage new skills and awareness. The club’s stated objective was to help national women realize their potential, and as a result, contribute to an ever changing, dynamic, modern society.
Successfully combining luxury with learning, modernity with tradition, the local with the global, since its inception the club has developed and gone on to become a powerhouse of cultural exchange, debate and recreation for women of all ages and nationalities.
