We can’t wait to dive into these…
Here in Dubai there are indoor pools, outdoor pools, kids’ pools, sky high pools and even glass-walled pools, but nothing beats a good infinity pool. From the smooth finish, to the seemingly never-ending stretch of water, infinity pools ooze luxury.
In the next couple of years, Dubai is set to see the launch of a few new epic infinity pools. Here are the ones we can’t wait for.
Raffles Palm Jumeirah
A second Raffles hotel is set to be built on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah by 2021. The two towers, called the Palm360, will be the tallest buildings on The Palm when complete. As well as housing the 125-key Raffles hotel, the two-tower site will also be home to 359 branded residences – including 16 penthouses that will each have their own private infinity pool, gym and cinema. But the bit that’s got us most excited is the pool. Set to be the world’s largest sky pool, it will reside at 170 metres high and span 155 metres in length, connecting the two towers.
Downtown Dubai will become home to one of the world’s highest infinity pools with the opening of a new hotel next year. The 5-star, SLS Dubai Hotel & Residences will be one of the tallest hotels in the city when it opens in the third quarter of 2020, and will boast 254 expertly designed hotel rooms, 371 residential units, 321 hotel apartments. But the jewel in this hotels crown will be two stunning rooftop infinity pools boasting 360-degree views of Dubai, where guests will be able to take a dip and soak up the city from an eye-watering 75 storeys high. Now that would make for a seriously good sunset swim snap.
Address Sky View
The two-tower Address Sky View hotel and residences will begin accepting hotel reservations from September 1. The epic new viewing deck will serve as the jewel in the Address Sky View crown, boasting 360 degree views of Downtown Dubai and the skyline beyond. As well as a public observation deck, Sky Bridge will be home to a huge infinity pool overlooking the city, as well as a restaurant and bar where you can dine as you watch the city go by below.
St Regis Dubai – The Palm
The first St Regis in the city was recently rebranded into Habtoor Palace, so we’re hoping the second serving fares better when it opens on The Palm. The luxury 280-room hotel will occupy the first 18 floors of a new building by master developer Palm Tower, which will be home to an infinity pool, 52nd floor viewing deck and several restaurants. It will also sit alongside the region’s first St Regis beach club.
