The Raffles hotel set to open on Dubai;s palm island will have the worlds largest sky pool


Every other building in Dubai is spectacular beyond limits. The city’s architecture is world- renowned for a reason and proving so again is the second Raffles project that is all set to commence on the sprawling Palm Jumeriah. Conceptualized by master developer Nakheel, this is the second Raffles hotel to grace the city and it is planned to awe visitors like they have never been before!

The project consists of a two-tower development that will include- Raffles The Palm Dubai Hotel and Raffles Residences PALM360. Staying true to its name the latter will provide panoramic views of the island and will consist of a 155-meter-long (the largest of its kind in the world!) sky pool, connecting the towers 170 meters above the ground! The PALM360 will also happen to be the first beachside Raffles in Dubai and the tallest structure to be built on the Palm Jumeriah.

It’s hotel counterpart will offer 25 hotel rooms and suites and about 359 branded residences and penthouses, each complete with a private infinity pool, gym and cinema. While the resort will also feature fitness and wellbeing facilities including a play area, spa and fitness center, it’s awe-inspiring sky-pool takes the cake for being the largest in the world. It beat the previous record that was held by the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore. For being perched at a height of 200 meters above ground level though, the Marina Bay pool continues to be the world’s highest.
