Situated on the 50th floor of Nakheel’s Palm Tower, the one-of-a-kind skypool will open this November
Dubai’s newest tourist attraction is a 360-degree infinity ‘skypool’, 200 metres high. From the new pool, guests can soak up uninterrupted views of many of Dubai’s landmarks, including Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and Ain Dubai.
Created by Dubai-based hospitality group Sunset Hospitality, the pool will be open daily from 10am until sunset, with three time slots available to book from AED170 per person.
The destination is divided into two distinct yet complementary spaces: the 750-square-metre Pool Deck furnished with custom-made sunbeds, and the pan-Asian Lounge & Bar where “lush greenery and natural design elements fuse with high-end interior finishes create an elegant oasis” say the representatives.
Speaking about the mid-November opening, with the exact date yet to be confirmed, Antonio Gonzalez, CEO of Sunset Hospitality said: “Aura is truly unlike any other destination in the world. With 360-degree views of some of the world’s most iconic sights, from the man-made Palm Jumeirah through to Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and Ain Dubai all in one view, it’s breath-taking.”
Omar Khoory, Chief Assets Officer at Nakheel, added: “We’re excited to be adding a record-breaking destination like Aura to The Palm Tower, one of Nakheel’s most prestigious buildings in Palm Jumeirah. As the first and highest 360-degree infinity pool, Aura will not only offer an exceptional experience but will also act as another focal destination that provides visitors with panoramic access to Palm Jumeirah’s brilliant architecture as well as key surrounding landmarks that have been pivotal to Dubai’s growth as a touristic destination.”
