Live like a king at Caesars Palace Bluewaters

icon

The only other Caesars Palace property besides the one in Las Vegas can be found at Bluewaters. The hotel lives up to its regal legacy with fine hospitality and premium facilities – think pristine pools, a signature spa, dedicated kids club and fine dining restaurants. The rooms are all wonderful but take our advice and book a suite for complimentary butler service. Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen is undoubtedly one of the can’t-miss culinary highlights here, serving the best flavours with a dash of theatrics. Looking for more Michelin magic? Head to Paru by celebrated chef Akira Back at the Caesars Resort Bluewaters next door.

Marvel at the record-breaking Ain Dubai

Bluewaters is the proud home of the world's tallest and largest observation wheel, Ain Dubai. The incredible structure stands tall at 210m, surpassing the London Eye, Singapore Flyer and even the High Roller in Las Vegas. Once operational, Ain Dubai will be able to carry up to 1,400 passengers in its 48 capsules, providing the perfect vantage point to take in sweeping views of the city’s sparkling coastline. One full rotation aboard lasts nearly 50 minutes, so you’ll have plenty of time to spot Dubai's most famous landmarks too, including Burj Al ArabPalm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa

It’s always sunny at Cove Beach

A seafront spectacular, Cove Beach is the perfect place to laze away the day. Housing a restaurant, lounge and three pools, all set to the backdrop of the Arabian Gulf’s turquoise waters, there's a distinctive Mediterranean vibe here that you’ll want to soak in. Enjoy the freshest seafood at Two.0 restaurant, before settling into a private cabana or luxurious day bed on the sand. The beach club is especially lively on weekends, when lounge beats take over and the city’s trendsetters come out to play.

Non-stop entertainment at The Rotunda

An exciting addition to the city’s events scene, The Rotunda at Caesars Palace Bluewaters impresses with a line-up of concerts, comedy shows and Las Vegas-style performances. Inspired by Rome’s ancient Pantheon, the venue’s striking dome shape houses 500 seats, each offering 360-degree views of all the action. Artists such as French humourist Malik Bentalha and British singer Tom Odell have performed here in the past, sharing the stage with everything from professional wrestling to awe-inspiring acrobatics.

Taste creativity at The London Project

While Bluewaters Island is home to an array of satisfying restaurants, The London Project is always a popular choice. Step inside to see why. There’s plenty of commissioned art to peruse on the walls, while the inhouse podcast studio tunes into community topics…and that’s all before you’ve even sampled the food. Championing the best of ‘London Eclectic’, the menu features star eats such as kaffir lime and ancho chilli squid, Oxford beef croquettes, and battered fish and chips, while the drinks and service are just as refreshing.
