360-degree views of Dubai
Soaring 50 floors above the ground, Aura Skypool in Dubai is the world’s highest infinity pool. Guests can enjoy renowned Dubai landmarks such as the Burj Al Arab and Ain Dubai as they swim across the 750-sqm/8,000-sqft pool. Private elevators will transport guests to the island-themed pool, filled with greenery, VIP lounges, sunbeds and cabanas.
For food enthusiasts, Aura offers an international menu created by head chef Craig Best. The pan-Asian menu features confit duck salad, glazed miso salmon, loaded grilled cauliflower and marinated pineapple sundae for dessert.
“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,” Omar Khoory, chief assets officer at Nakheel, the developer behind Palm Jumeirah and Aura Skypool, told with Travel + Leisure.
