From record-breaking attractions to luxury resorts, this island address has it all.

Live like a king at Caesars Palace Dubai

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.

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 250m, surpassing the London Eye, Singapore Flyer and even the High Roller in Las Vegas. One full rotation aboard lasts nearly 40 minutes, so you’ll have plenty of time to spot Dubai's most famous landmarks, as well as enjoy elevated dining and customisable fun. Temporarily closed for renovation.

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.

Taste creativity at The London Project

__Standard Values

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 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 lime and chilli squid, beef croquettes and battered fish and chips.

Get starry-eyed at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds

The first Madame Tussauds in the Middle East is located at the heart of Bluewaters Island. Fans of all ages can explore themed zones looking for their favourite famous faces and mingle with international stars from the spheres of sports, politics, fashion, media and entertainment – think Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, Vin Diesel and more. There's also plenty of regional icons like Emirati-Yemeni music star Balqees Fathi and Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram.

Pull up a chair at The Pods

The Pods Bluewaters Island

Looking for a luxurious private dining experience? The Pods is the perfect choice. Transparent cocoons not only ensure you are exclusively in chosen company but protect you from the elements while letting you sit 'outdoors'. A botanical-themed decor adds to the al fresco vibe. Pan Asian cuisine is on the menu, including comforting Malaysian beef rendang, Burmese khow suey noodle soup, dim sum, soups and plenty more on offer.

Joining the mighty Cove Beach at Caesars Palace Dubai, Venus boasts stunning Ain Dubai views, towering palm trees and strategically-strewn hammocks. Stretch out on one of the luxe cabanas or sample the gourmet menu of light bites.

Climb into Tr88house

Whether the kids are looking to take on their friends at the interactive play zone or grab a bite at the gourmet food hall, you'll find a lot on offer at the Tr88house indoor play emporium. The littlest patrons can explore multi-storey mazes and ball pits at the Munchkin Monster soft play area, while older kids can jump into the trampoline park, opt for a game of laser tag or master glow-in-the-dark mini golf. Shows where brightly-hued characters mingle add to the excitement.
