Address Beach Resort: The world’s highest infinity pool has opened in Dubai
There are few feelings as liberating as swimming in the open air, below blue skies that stretch all the way to horizon — and now in Dubai you can do it nearly 1,000 feet above sea level.
Named in March as the world’s tallest infinity pool inside a building, the rooftop bathing spot at the newly opened Address Beach Resort is a vertiginous 293.906 meters high (964 feet and 3.1 inches).
That’s about nine-tenths as tall as the Eiffel Tower. Oh la la.
This ain’t no paddling pool either — at 94.84 meters in length and 16.5 meters in width, it’s nearly twice as long as an Olympic-sized pool.
Although guests might want to relax on their training for Paris 2024 and just soak up the panoramic views of the brand new Ain Dubai ferris wheel — the world’s tallest — and the white sands of Jumeirah Beach.
The pool is only open to hotel guests, aged 21 and older, but you can get the vistas without slipping into a swimming costume by booking a table at the adjacent rooftop restaurant, Zeta Seventy Seven. The Asian Fusion restaurant is so named because it and the pool are both on the hotel’s 77th floor.
