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 stunning 293.906 meters high (964 feet and 3.1 inches) or about nine-tenths as tall as the Eiffel Tower.
Furthermore, at 94.84 meters in length and 16.5 meters in width, it’s nearly twice as long as an Olympic-sized pool and is surrounded by 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 enjoy the view without donning swimming trunks 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.
Address Beach Resort, along with Address Beach Residences, is housed in a set of two towers connected at their base and again by a skybridge from the 63rd level to the 77th.
The skybridge, which is home to luxury apartments, is at 294.36 meters (965.7 feet) the world’s highest occupiable skybridge floor.
The beachfront property, known as Jumeirah Gate, opened in December 2020 and is another striking architectural addition to the already bustling Jumeirah skyline.
Federico Rota, deputy CEO of Al Ain Holding, said of the various records the building holds, “Staying true to our testament to developing landmark projects, we are proud to be breaking two Guinness World Record titles with the Address Beach Resort. With state-of-the-art construction and groundbreaking amenities, this development has set new standards in luxury lifestyle and hospitality.”
