The world’s largest swimming pool is located in the U.A.E., and it has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the only one with an area of over 50,000 square meters. This incredible pool was designed with a unique concept that blends traditional Arabic architecture with modern design elements to create a truly stunning piece of architecture. Surrounded by lush greenery, this spectacular water park features many attractions for all ages, all while being eco-friendly due to its solar power system.
The world’s largest swimming pool is set to open on June 16th, 2017 in Dubai at Zabeel Park Landmark hotel near Safa Park and promises t to add a whole new dimension to the term “water-park”.
The pool is called The World and will be the home of Water Discus Underwater Hotel. The hotel features 21 suites, each with views of the surrounding Arabian Gulf waters. The rooms are glass tunneled beneath the surface, giving you a unique view of the aquatic life that lives below!
The pool is multi-layers, with the deepest part nearly 65 feet deep. There will be another hotel at the bottom of the pool, presumably built under a section that is not so deep.
Zabeel Park Landmark hotel claims to have set out on a mission “to capture and showcase Dubai’s architectural beauty.” The design of the pool echoes this statement. The hotel’s website goes on to say, “Consisting of 21 floors above ground and two floors below the sea, it is unlike anything that exists in the world today. Its unique design allows guests to marvel at marine life without even getting their feet wet.”
The multi-level pool will be located within the swanky Zabeel Park Landmark Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project is extremely ambitious, costing $1 billion to complete.
The record was previously held by San Alfonso del Mar Seawater pool in Algarrobo, Chile, that measures 1 kilometer long and covers more than 50 acres of land (about the size of 60 soccer fields).
The World features an incredible underwater entrance, with a large glass lobby that guests can enter through. From there, they’ll step into the water and explore the park’s many attractions under the sea. These include snorkeling around a sunken shipwreck and experiencing an artificial beach with water slides and wave pools.
