Located across the water from Dubai Marina, Bluewaters Island is split into different areas across residential, retail, leisure and entertainment, hotels and beach clubs. The record-breaking Ain Dubai or ‘Dubai Eye’ is the centrepiece of the lifestyle destination, which is home to more than 200 retail and dining concepts.

The island is also home to Caesar’s Palace Dubai, a luxurious lifestyle resort with a range of accommodation types and dining venues. Within the ultra-luxe hub, you’ll find the incredibly popular Cove Beach lounge, entertaining guests throughout the week and ideal for sunset mingling.

Home to Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel, it is also a shopper’s paradise, housing unique retail and dining concepts. Bluewaters’ bridge and multi-mode transport systems make this urban island easy to access.
