The most anticipated project in Dubai
Bluewaters Island has finally announced the opening of their doors to the public on Monday.
If the name Bluewaters doesn’t ring a bell then the gigantic ferris wheel overlooking The Beach in JBR might.
Slowly but surely, residents in Dubai have witnessed the whole project come together piece-by-piece, and have wondered when the island will be open to the public.
What was just an island off the coast of the JBR in Dubai, became a full-pledged touristic area – residents watched the largest Ferris wheel, called Ain Dubai (Dubai Eye) in the UAE come together stage by stage over the past couple of months.
Located near the waters in JBR, the public can now finally visit the island and see the years’ worth of development unfold right in front of their eyes.
Bluewaters Island isn’t an ordinary island – residents and tourist get to enjoy a vast array of amenities, including residences, hotels, restaurants, a Madame Tussauds, shops and of course the fully-operating Ferris wheel.
So far, only one hotel has opened its doors to the public in the UAE, the highly anticipated Caesars Palace is a renowned hotel making its way from Las Vegas in the United States to 300 metres off the coast of JBR in Dubai.
When rumours were finally confirmed on November 5, that Caesars Palace hotel will officially be home to Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen, the people of Dubai were elated with joy in hopes to see the talented chef in his own element.
This huge observation wheel overlooks the gorgeous waters of Dubai’s coastline as it stands 210 metres tall near The Beach in JBR.
It will include 48 capsules made of complete glass for the best panoramic views of Dubai and is capable of carrying 1,400 passengers at once.
And if that’s not exciting enough, some of the capsules will be fitted with dining rooms that can seat 12 guests for a dining experience while they observe the 360 views from above.
