Towering over the golden beach in Dubai Marina, this new five-star hotel from homegrown hospitality brand Address is topped by the world’s highest infinity pool.

Rooftop restaurant Zeta Seventy Seven is the place for sundowners with views of the turquoise sea, neighbouring skyscrapers, and the new Ain Dubai Ferris wheel, although you may find yourself rubbing shoulders with the army of influencers who come up here to snap the money shot.

Back on ground level, the hotel has a 100m private section of Dubai’s pristine beach, with loungers and full hotel services.

The location ­– on pedestrian-friendly The Walk – is great if you want to explore Dubai Marina’s many restaurants and bars on foot, while Bluewaters Island and the Ain Dubai Ferris wheel are also nearby. It’s welcoming of families, with Families a QIX Kids’ Club and a Splash Pad play area.

Surrounding area

Sitting at one end of Dubai Marina’s The Walk, the hotel is a short stroll from some of Dubai’s buzziest bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

Surrounded by high-rise apartment buildings and other hotels, with a stretch of golden beach directly in front, this is a bustling quarter of town, with both locals and tourists flocking to the beach on weekends.

Fortunately, there are recliners reserved for hotel guests, so there’s no need to fight for your space in the sun.
