There are not many feelings as liberating as swimming in the open, below blue skies that extend all the way to the horizon– and now in Dubai, you can do it approximately 1,000 feet above sea level.
Titled in March as the world’s highest infinity pool inside a building, the rooftop pool at the newly opened Address Beach Resort is 964 feet and 3.1 inches tall.
That’s about eight-tenths as tall as the Eiffel Tower.
94.84 meters in length and 16.5 meters in width, it’s twice as long as an Olympic-sized pool.
However, guests might want to relax and just soak up the panoramic views of the white sands of Jumeirah Beach and the new Ain Dubai Ferris wheel- the world’s tallest.
The pool is only open to hotel guests aged 18 and older. Still, you can get the panoramic view without going into the swimming pool by booking a table at the adjacent rooftop restaurant- called Zeta Seventy Seven. The restaurant is so named because it is on the hotel’s 77th floor.
Incredible as all this is, it’s not the only Guinness World Record claimed by the hotel. Nor are the fantastic sights restricted to those on the upper levels.
Address Beach Resort is housed in a set of two towers linked at their base and again by a sky bridge from the 64th level to the 78th.
The sky bridge, which is a shelter to luxury apartments, is at 300 meters, the world’s tallest occupiable sky bridge floor.
Deputy CEO of Al Ain Holding, Federico Rota, said that we are, “Staying true to our words of developing landmark projects, we are very proud of breaking two Guinness World Record titles. With groundbreaking amenities and state-of-the-art construction, this development has set new standards in luxury hospitality and lifestyle.”
