The Blue-eyed wonder: Bluewaters Island

Filed on September 4, 2020 | Last updated on September 6, 2020 at 12.21 pm

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

Marvel at the 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 Arab, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa.

Live like a king at Caesars Palace Bluewaters
Located in the shadow of Ain Dubai (the world's largest observation wheel), Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai is the non-gaming cousin of the iconic Las Vegas brand. It redefines the idea of luxury, at least in the context of the UAE, from over-the-top, regal and fairytale-like to understatedly slick, sophisticated and cool. 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.

It's 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.
