Work starts on Palm Tower infinity pool

February 2019

Master developer Nakheel has started the construction of a rooftop infinity swimming pool at The Palm Tower, its 52-storey, luxury hotel and residential complex coming up in the heart of Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, UAE.

The infinity pool, one of the highest in the world, is perched 210 m above ground and covers 775 sq m. It borders all four sides of the building, boasting unrivalled, panoramic views across Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline, says Nakheel.

The pool – which will hold 930,000 litres of water – is on the 50th floor of The Palm Tower. Above the pool will be a podium housing a speciality restaurant on the 51st level and a public viewing deck on the 52nd storey, 240 m high.

The infinity pool at Palm Tower will be one of the highest in the world.

Nakheel says the construction of the rooftop dining viewing deck complex will begin soon. 

Located at the heart of the world-famous Palm Jumeirah, The Palm Tower comprises a 289-room St Regis hotel, 432 luxury residences and an array of dining and leisure facilities. The hotel occupies the first 18 floors, with fully-furnished studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments on the upper floors. 

Currently, around 850 construction workers are on site at The Palm Tower, a figure that is set to rise to more than 1,500 when internal fit-out gets in full swing in the next few weeks, says the master developer. Fit-out of the St Regis – due to open later this year – has already begun, it adds. 

The Palm Tower is directly connected to the under-construction Nakheel Mall – the access point for the public viewing deck – and its 350 shops, restaurants and attractions.

The retail destination, which has its own Palm Monorail station, is due for completion later this year, says Nakheel.

Several other dining, leisure and entertainment venues are nearby, including the St Regis Beach Club, part of Nakheel’s Palm West Beach complex, to which hotel guests and residents will have priority access; Al Ittihad Park, the UAE’s first indigenous park, spanning 1.1 million sq ft across the heart of Palm Jumeirah; and the newly-opened Pointe at Palm Jumeirah, with 70 seafront restaurants and shops.
