Dubai unveils world’s biggest infinity pool between TWO skyscrapers

Dubai unveils the world’s biggest infinity pool between two skyscrapers, but it will cost up to £10k to swim in it. Dubai has now become home to the world’s longest infinity pool, floating hundreds of metres up in the sky between two skyscrapers.

Measuring an astonishing 120 metres (393 feet) in length, a quick splash in the ultra-lux pool can cost you up to £10,000. It will be located in The Link, the longest cantilever building on the planet, perched atop the structure 100 metres high. A cantilever is a single-ended construction that extends horizontally without any support, similar to a diving board.

The one at One Za’abeel will extend 67.5 metres (221 feet) over the city and have three storeys. Straddled between the two towers of the building, the infinity pool area will feature luxurious cabanas with unobstructed views of the Dubai skyline.

Tourists and Dubai residents can access the pool with a day pass, which costs 1,000 dirhams ($272) per person and ranges up to $10,000 for VIP cabanas with their own music system, air conditioning, bathrooms, dining rooms, and private garden.

Guests are also promised to enjoy a pool club and restaurant across the top of The Link. Those wanting to stay a little longer can get a room at a hotel which occupies the top 30 floors of one of the towers. “In the absence of a beach and other water-based activities, our guests will have The Link as their playground,” said Badr Benryane, director of food and beverage at the One&Only Za’abeel resort.

According to Fadi Jabri, CEO of Nikken Sekkei Dubai, the architecture firm behind the building, The Link unites the two towers of the opulent construction and offers a place for shared amenities and lifestyle features.

Dubai is home to numerous record-breaking pools. In 2021, the Aura Skypool became the world’s highest 360-degree infinity pool And the Address Beach Resort’s 293.9-meter-high (964.2-foot) pool on the 77th floor of Dubai’s Jumeirah Gate is the world’s tallest infinity pool within a structure. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia‘ egomaniac plans to become the centre of the world don’t seem to be going well.
