Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure, the hotel, restaurant and leisure arm of developer Nakheel, has unveiled the UAE’s first floating swimming pool, 50 metres offshore in the waters of the Palm Jumeirah in the Arabian Gulf.

A new destination for poolside relaxation by day and a venue for private events by night, the pool is an extension of Breeze Beach Grill at Club Vista Mare. 

Accessible by a 50 metre walkway, the 20 metre long pool has an extensive deck area with sunbeds and seating for up to 75 people. It is attached to the seabed using the Seaflex anchor system that is used for pontoons and floating jetties.

Thorsten Ries, managing director, Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure, said: “This stunning new attraction is unique because it allows guests to choose from a fresh water dip in the pool or salt water swim in the Arabian Gulf, in one offshore location. It’s been constructed over the summer to be ready for the winter season, and is already the talk of the town.

“Breeze Beach Grill is one of our most popular dining and leisure destinations, thanks to its superb location and private beach. Now it has the added attraction of the UAE’s first floating pool, further enhancing its appeal as a must-visit venue in Dubai.”

Day time entry to the pool is for adults only, and costs AED200 per person, AED100 of which is redeemable on food and drinks from Breeze. Towels are provided.

By night, the pool transforms into a private function venue – ideal for corporate events, product launches or family celebrations.
