Dubai’s water attractions tap into the tourism trend

Deep Dive Dubai Pool has been certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – In addition to year-round sunshine and a huge well-served international airport, Dubai is drawing in hordes of foreign visitors thanks to its unmatched flair for publicity fueled by a “come on” approach to new construction. .

Blunt one-upmanship and dramatic performances are part of the city’s DNA – and in an age of depressing international news, who can blame holidaymakers who want an out-of-this-world escapism?

And there are two new record-breaking destinations in Dubai.

Those who love to dive into mysterious watery areas can now test their skills at Deep Dive Dubai – the only facility in the world where you can dive to a depth of 60 meters, which is 15 meters deeper than anywhere else. Not to mention four times bigger.

Located in the Nad Al Sheba neighborhood of Dubai, Deep Dive Dubai Pool is certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s deepest swimming pool and holds 14 million liters of water, the equivalent of six Olympic-sized pools. You need to book in advance to try it and it’s only open to scuba divers aged 10 and over.

This terrifying hole in the heart of the desert is equipped with 56 cameras to ensure the safety of visitors along with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems.

“By design, Deep Dive Dubai offers something truly unique for everyone and our team is committed to ensuring an unforgettable experience,” commented facility director Jarrod Jablonski, himself a world record-holding cave diver, at the launch last year.

Gautam Kulkarni, a Dubai expatriate from India, recently plunged into this unusual attraction and was suitably impressed.

“The dive itself was pretty cool — it’s amazing to step into a normal-depth pool and then suddenly a whole chasm opens up beneath you,” he told CNBC.

He added that the only downside was the lack of marine life, but it was a great one-time experience.

Step back into the bright Dubai sun and soar 294 meters into the sky and you’ll find another Guinness World Record breaker – the outdoor infinity pool atop Jumeirah Beach Residence’s lavish five-star Address Beach Resort, the world’s highest.

Stepping out from the 77th floor, the pool (which also opened last year) is an Instagrammer’s fever dream with incredible panoramic views of the city’s most popular landmarks such as Bluewater Island, Palm Jumeirah and the tent-shaped Burj Al Arab. Swimmers who are prone to convulsions should clear the shore thoroughly with a breathing-absorbing drop.

A wet surface area on the roof gives the appearance of a large lake in the sky, while the space is also home to ZETA Seventy Seven, a charming Asian restaurant with a seafood-inspired menu.

For guests to enjoy a serene view and VIP treatment, the floor is only open to those over 21 years of age.

“We’ve been coming to Dubai for years and it’s crazy, this place just doesn’t stop coming up with these amazing sights – you’d think they couldn’t do anything when they did,” said Stuart Davids, a tourist from the UK enjoying the address. The hotel’s poolside cabanas told CNBC.

He added: “We’ve been to some of the best hotels in Dubai but this one is extra special – the crazy views, the gorgeous infinity pool, the service, everything.”

Address Beach Resort is part of a twin tower project developed by Al Ain Holding along with Address Beach Residences and comprises 217 hotel rooms and suites, 443 serviced apartments, and 478 residential apartments.

These attractive pads are currently being phased out by the influx of wealthy individuals into Dubai’s equally booming real estate market, which saw a 3.8% increase from 52,000 in December 2020 to 54,000 in 2021, according to research firm New World We.
