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 vertiginous 293.906 meters high (964 feet and 3.1 inches).
That’s about nine-tenths as tall as the Eiffel Tower. Oh la la.
This ain’t no paddling pool either — at 94.84 meters in length and 16.5 meters in width, it’s nearly twice as long as an Olympic-sized pool.
Although guests might want to relax on their training for Paris 2024 and just soak up the panoramic views of the brand new Ain Dubai ferris wheel — the world’s tallest — and the white sands of Jumeirah Beach.
Impressive as all this is, it’s not even the only Guinness World Record held by the resort. Nor are the impressive sights restricted to the those on the upper levels.
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.
This beachfront property, known as Jumeirah Gate, opened in December 2020 and is another striking architectural addition to the already bustling Jumeirah skyline.
After all, it often feels like a tourist attraction daren’t open its doors in the emirate without having at least one record-breaking claim to its name.
Federico Rota, deputy CEO of Al Ain Holding, said of the wins, “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.”
The Sky Pool is a 82-foot (25-meter) transparent swimming pool stretched between the 10th stories of two residential skyscrapers — and it’s the largest freestanding acrylic pool structure in the world.
It’s a little harder to get into than the Address Beach Resort pool, though — you have to be a resident of the $1.4 million apartments.
