It’s officially summer in Dubai, and the luxurious Address Beach Resort at Jumeirah Gate is the best place in the United Arab Emirates to help you stay cool.

The amenities at the Address Beach Resort at Jumeirah Gate, which opened in December 2020, have reached new heights. The resort’s pool is now in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest outdoor infinity pool. Located on the resort’s 77th-floor rooftop, the massive pool (almost twice as long as an Olympic pool, according to CNN) is over 964 feet up in the air.

Views from the edge of the pool include Bluewater’s Island, Palm Jumeirah, the World Islands, Dubai’s Marina Coastline, the Burj Al Arab, and more.

But this stunning infinity pool is not the only record the Address Beach Resort at Jumeirah Gate has broken. The resort has a skybridge connecting the top 63rd level to the 77th, and it broke the record for the highest occupiable skybridge floor at 965.7 feet high.
