The thrill of heights meets the pleasure of swimming at Aura Skypool, the world’s highest infinity pool located on the 50th floor of the Palm Tower on Palm Jumeirah Island. The pool sits 656ft above the ground, and with such towering height comes uninterrupted views of the striking Dubai skyline. The Palm Tower will become quite the hotspot from November 15th onwards as not only will it take you high up in the skies, but it will also show you the best of Dubai from a single location.
The pool deck to the back of Aura looks straight down the trunk of Palm Jumeirah, allowing you to take in the island’s impressive details from above. In addition to this, there are sprawling views of Downtown Skyline in the distance, with Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa standing in the perfect picture too. Every spot is comfortable, but as you better your seating arrangement and your views become more spectacular, so does the price. To avoid disappointment, it is better to book yourself at Aura to awe its offerings.
The deck area seating starts from $47 for standard sun loungers in the Orange Zone to $55 in the Green Zone, closer to the pool, and stretches up to $75 for a VIP island bed. In all honesty, there is no bad seat in the house. Enjoy a laid-back but beautiful day by choosing between three ticketing time slots or go all out by taking full-day passes, prices of which start from $100. To keep you entertained, while the views are enough, Aura offers an unparalleled vibe as an indoor lounge and bar space.

Omar Khoory, Chief Assets Officer at Nakheel, shared with Daily Mail, ‘We are excited to be adding a record-breaking destination like Aura to The Palm Tower, one of Nakheel’s most prestigious buildings in Palm Jumeirah. As the first and highest 360-degree infinity pool, Aura will not only offer an exceptional experience but will also act as another focal destination that provides visitors with panoramic access to Palm Jumeirah’s brilliant architecture as well as key surrounding landmarks that have been pivotal to Dubai’s growth as a touristic destination.’
