Air-conditioned infinity pool stretched over eight floors, with 5,000ft-high views of Dubai’s skyline
The world’s tallest infinity pool has opened in Dubai, stretching over eight floors and hundreds of feet above the city’s skyline.
Dubai ruler Mohammad bin Rashid al-Maktoum described the water feature as a “tribute to today’s visitors” and part of the city’s latest step toward the “ultimate goal of a clean, green, united, emirate of human happiness”.
The curved glass pool on the 70th floor of the Marina Tower, which includes air-conditioned views of the city, is part of a $4bn redevelopment in the heart of the glitzy emirate.
It is located next to a facility that offers indoor swimming, health and beauty treatments and sports activities and is part of the multimillion-dollar, eight-storey building that was formerly the headquarters of the emirate’s second-largest bank.
The building has been added to an existing building, the Marina Tower, that consists of 36 floors of residential units with 436 apartments.
Rents vary from Dh19,000 ($5,665) to Dh27,000 ($7,141) a month, according to consultancy Cushman & Wakefield.
