It’s no secret that Dubai loves its skyscrapers. Already home to the world’s tallest building, the mighty Burj Khalifa, the city is overflowing with ingenuity when it comes to architectural design. And this doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon, as the Middle Eastern metropolis unveiled an impressive new infinity pool that has broken records worldwide.
Located on the top floor of the recently-opened Address Beach Resort, the pool extends 1.2 metres down at its deepest end, and has a volume of about 500 cubic metres. It stretches an incredible 293.906m in height, with a length of 94.84m and width of 16.50m, making it the highest outdoor infinity pool in a building on the planet.
Officially verified by Guinness World Records last month, the luxury lido boasts panaromic views over Dubai’s magical skyline, including the iconic Ain Dubai and Palm Jumeirah. Guests of the resort can dive, dip, paddle and float, knowing they are quite literally on top of the world when it comes to all things swim-related. A dynamic Asian fusion restaurant completes this uncontested rooftop.
However, the celestial watery oasis is not all the Address Beach Resort has to brag about, as the building also landed the record for the world’s tallest inhabited skybridge. Situated across two 77-floor towers, the high-rises are connnected at their base until the 13th floor, and then again at the top by the occupiable skybridge, which extends from the 63rd floor to the final 77th level.
Developed by Al Ain Holding, the entire complex consists of 217 hotel rooms and suites, 443 serviced flats and 478 residential apartments.
“We are very honored to have received this accolade”, says Mark Kirby, Head of Hospitality at resort-owner Emaar. “The Guinness World Records titles positions Address Hotels and Resorts as the epitome of luxury and within bucket list destinations for travelers.”
