Things to Do

So you’re on the lookout for killer views?

The world’s highest 360-degree infinity pool will open on Palm Jumeirah next month.

When it comes to all things fun and fabulous, Palm Jumeirah is where it’s at circa now. Not only is the artificial island marking its 20th anniversary in 2021, but it’s also gearing up to welcome the likes of culinary hotspot SUSHISAMBA, beach club February 30, nightlife spot Soho Garden and a whole host of swanky hotels. But there’s more – and it pairs sunbeds and swimwear with contemporary Asian flavours, laidback vibes and breathtaking views, courtesy of Sunset Hospitality.

Aptly named AURA SKYPOOL, the one-of-a-kind lounge is located on the 50th floor of The Palm Tower, home to The View at The Palm and The St. Regis Dubai, The Palm. Suspended 200 metres in the air and opening its doors in mid-November, the highly anticipated destination boasts the world’s first and highest 360-degree infinity pool. How’s that for a superlative perfectly suited to Dubai? AURA will be open daily from 10am to sunset, serving uninterrupted views of Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and Ain Dubai alongside sharing dishes inspired by Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities – think: Aura Sticky Confit Duck Salad, Glazed Miso Salmon, Loaded Grilled Cauliflower and Marinated Pineapple Sundae.

Design-wise, a buzzy oasis awaits as lush greenery and natural design elements have been fused with high-end interior finishes across two distinct spaces: the 750-square-metre Pool Deck complemented by the Lounge & Bar. Visits will start from AED 170 per person, with three ticketing time slots available to choose from. Translation? You can enjoy a relaxed morning by the pool, capture Insta-perfect photos during a sunset session or leisurely while away an entire day.

Speaking about the launch, CEO of Sunset Hospitality Antonio Gonzalez said: “AURA is truly unlike any other destination in the UAE and the world. With 360-degree views of some of the world’s most iconic sights, from the man-made Palm Jumeirah through to Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and Ain Dubai – all in one view – it’s a breathtaking new destination that will continue to showcase the very best of Dubai.”
