New “luxury island” stretches Dubai coastline

Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace is collaborating on five-star hotels at Bluewaters, a “revolutionary addition to Dubai’s luxury hospitality scene”.

Dubai continues to add marvels of construction featuring luxury hotels and residences to its sprawling and high-rising landscape. Bluewaters, a future island destination, has now preliminarily opened to curious visitors.

Expected to welcome its first residents in the first quarter of next year, the new island is described by developer Meraas as an “all-encompassing destination, comprising residential, hospitality, lifestyle, leisure and entertainment spaces”, with a road bridge and pedestrian bridge from the mainland plus water transport.

Besides Bluewaters Residences – ten mid-rise towers featuring 698 apartments, four penthouses and 17 townhouses, Meraas promises an “island luxe vibe” at the Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai, The Residences at Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai and Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai.

These five-star properties will have 495 luxury rooms and 80 serviced apartments as well as a 500-seat theatre called the Rotunda, a state-of-the-art conference centre and Cove Beach Dubai, a “stunning private beach club”.

Tallest wheel
The 194-key Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai – the world’s second Caesars Palace after the one in Las Vegas – will have an outdoor swimming pool, six “cutting-edge” restaurants and a spa and fitness centre with views of Ain Dubai, which at 200 metres will be the highest observation wheel in the world.

The second hotel, Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai, will comprise 301 rooms, two outdoor swimming pools, six restaurants, three meeting rooms and a 750-square-metre event hall.

Finally, The Wharf will be Bluewaters’ lifestyle retail area set against the backdrop of Ain Dubai, with 132 retail and dining outlets scattered across the boulevard in low-rise structures, plus licensed fine-dining concepts, cafés, restaurants and bistros.
