Wed, September 15, 2021

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

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

1

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, serving the best flavours with a dash of theatrics.

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. Book your tickets today and take in sweeping views of the city’s sparkling coastline. 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.

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.

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 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.

Get starry-eyed at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds

The first Madame Tussauds in the Middle East is opening at Bluewaters Island in October. Fans of all ages will be thrilled 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.
