Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure, the hotel, restaurant and leisure arm of master developer Nakheel, has unveiled the United Arab Emirates’ first floating swimming pool, 50 metres offshore in the waters of the world-famous Palm Jumeirah in the Arabian Gulf.
A new destination for poolside relaxation by day and a stunning venue for private events by night, the pool is a unique extension of Breeze Beach Grill at Club Vista Mare, one of Nakheel’s growing collection of clubs and restaurants across the emirate.
Accessible by a 50-metre walkway, the 20-metre-long, ten-metre wide, 1.2-metre-deep pool has an extensive deck area with sunbeds and seating for up to 75 people.
It is attached to the seabed using the Seaflex anchor system that is used for pontoons and floating jetties.
Thorsten Ries, managing director, Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure, said: “This stunning new attraction is unique because it allows guests to choose from a fresh water dip in the pool or salt water swim in the Arabian Gulf, in one offshore location.
“It’s been constructed over the summer to be ready for the winter season, and is already the talk of the town.
“Breeze Beach Grill is one of our most popular dining and leisure destinations, thanks to its superb location and private beach.
“Now it has the added attraction of the UAE’s first floating pool, further enhancing its appeal as a must-visit venue in Dubai.”
By night, the pool transforms into a private function venue – ideal for corporate events, product launches or family celebrations.
Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure also operates clubs and restaurants at Jebel Ali Village, Jumeirah Islands and Al Furjan, with more under development at Jumeirah Park, Warsan Village, Jumeirah Village and Nad Al Sheba.
