Torch outdoor pool area and spa shown on the right, barbecue area is on the left (marina side). Note the many square holes on the podium for palm tree landscaping.

Laws are different from place to place. Many towers in the Marina offers barbeque area and of course all of them have at least one swimming pool.

True. I think it is a Hazard safe regulation that most need to follow regarding Private decks.

Different Question: I have seen a lot of pictures in Dubai of summing pools but never anyone in them. Is it because of the custom and religion....not to show too much skin in public?

No, more likely because they are on the beach instead or at work at the time of the photos.

See this recent photo of a beach close to the marina.

Well maybe he is. But the rent is really down these days in that area and much more people now can afford it.
If you kept your good job after the crisis then you can do it too!
Amazing building Imre, really one of the best to live in!
