Dubai’s latest iconic skyscraper, the Address Beach Resort, has broken two records, one of which being an extraordinary outdoor infinity pool which is located almost 300m up in the air.
Dubai is one of the leading cities in the world when it comes to extraordinary architecture.
From the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa standing at 828 m (2,716 ft 6 in) tall, to the world’s largest frame building measuring 150.23 m (492 ft 10 in) tall and 95.53 m (313 ft 5 in) wide.
And it seems like the city is not slowing down anytime soon!
The Address Beach Resort, one of the latest additions to the Dubai skyline, has broken the record for the highest outdoor infinity pool in a building in the world.
The infinity pool is located on the resort’s rooftop at 293.90 m (964 ft 2 in) up.
The wet surface area is approximately 560 square metres, giving it the appearance of a massive lake in the sky.
The pool has a volume of approximately 500 cubic metres and is 1.2 metres deep at its deepest point.
But the pool isn't the only record-breaking feature of the Address Beach Resort.
In addition to the record-breaking pool, the 77th-floor rooftop provides an amazing panoramic view of the cities most iconic landmarks such as the Bluewater’s Island, Palm Jumeirah, the World Islands, Dubai’s Dubai Marina Coastline, the Burj Al Arab and across the Arabian Gulf Sea.
Next to the floating lake, the rooftop is home to ZETA Seventy Seven, an Asian restaurant with a seafood-inspired menu.
The Address Beach Resort is part of a 77-storey twin tower project alongside the Address Beach Residences.
Both towers are joined at their base from the 1st level to the 13th and linked again at the top by a skybridge from the 63rd level to the 77th.
The skybridge has broken the record for the highest occupiable skybridge floor at 294.36 m (965.7 ft).
The skybridge hosts luxurious and serviced residential apartments.
The entire project was developed by Al Ain Holding and consists of 217 hotel rooms and suites, 443 serviced apartments, and 478 residential apartments.
"We are very honored to have received this accolade. The Guinness World Records titles positions Address Hotels and Resorts at the epitome of luxury and within bucket list destinations for travelers. With the opening of ZETA Seventy Seven, our diners will have an unmatched view of the city alongside with some great food." - Mark Kirby, Head of hospitality at Emaar
