Dubai has broken a new record: in addition to having the world’s largest skyscraper and shopping mall, the famous city of the United Arab Emirates now has the deepest swimming pool called Deep Dive Dubai. The construction, more than 60 meters deep and with a size equivalent to six Olympic swimming pools, has joined the Guinness Book of Records.
The spectacular feature of the new Dubai pool is not only the length of its depths, but also the fact that it allows diving through hidden rooms, inside which visitors can find vehicles, games and various decorations. It also has state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems that create different underwater environments. The immense facility, which holds 14 million liters of fresh water, has beaten what was previously considered the deepest pool on the planet, the 45-meter-deep Deep Spot in Warsaw (Poland).
Another peculiarity of this new attraction is that the water is kept at 30 degrees, which improves the comfort of divers, who can wear light neoprene suits. In addition, the installation guarantees the cleanliness of the water, thanks to a filter system that is activated every six hours, and security, as it is equipped with 56 video surveillance cameras.
The giant water tank is located in a 1,500-square-meter facility in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba district, the design of which is shaped like a giant conch shell, as can be seen in the photographs. The facility also offers a service with professional divers who offer advice and teach diving techniques to visitors.
On March 24, Dubai also managed to be considered the city with the highest swimming pool in the world, with almost 294 meters high. An infrastructure located in the Address Beach hotel complex, which opened last December.
The infinity pool measures 94.84 meters long by 16.5 meters wide and has a maximum depth of 1.2 meters. It sits atop an impressive hotel complex comprised of twin 77-story towers offering 217 rooms and suites, 443 resort-serviced apartments and 478 residential apartments.
