Dubai has a new favourite vintage point

The Next Level takes The View at The Palm to new heights.

The View at The Palm is one of ‘those’ attractions – popular with tourists and residents alike, beloved by kids and adults alike. And just when you thought you had run out of reasons to return to this 360-degree observation deck, Nakheel announced the opening of The Next Level, a private viewing space featuring unobstructed, barrierless, panoramic vistas of Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and Dubai’s skyline.

The Next Level

At 250 metres above ground, this new extension to The View has officially become the highest vantage point on Palm Jumeirah. Here, you can opt for a general ticket (starting at AED 175 for adults and AED 120 for juniors aged four to 12), featuring fast-track access to Levels 52 and 54 as well as a self-tour. Alternatively, you can take things a notch higher and with the VIP experience (starting at AED 325 for adults and AED 145 for juniors aged four to 12). The latter not only includes fast-track access to The View on Level 52 and The Next Level, but also a guided tour and access to the VIP lounge, where snacks, Arabic sweets, and a house beverage or bubbly drink are served.

Omar Khoory, Chief Assets Officer at Nakheel, said: “Nakheel continues to push boundaries and introduce unique, record-breaking concepts that set Dubai apart as a world-famous destination. Following the overwhelming success of The View at The Palm, launched in April last year, we are delighted to take this experience to new heights by introducing The Next Level, adding a new dimension to what is already a highly popular must-see attraction. We look forward to welcoming visitors for an unrivalled experience that celebrates the spectacular feat of engineering that is Palm Jumeirah.”

The Next Level

The Next Level was inaugurated by a unique collaboration with Emirati figure skater Zahra Lari, with the observation deck temporarily transformed into an ice rink and her personal playground for a day. Dropping from a helicopter onto the viewing deck, she experienced the new attraction in her own way, performing acrobatic stunts, dances and spins well above ground level. The View at The Palm is open from 9am to 10pm from Monday to Thursday, and 9am to 12am from Friday to Sunday.
