The Pointe, Nakheel Malls’ premier lifestyle and dining destination in Dubai, is setting up to launch the largest fountain in the world.
During its inaugural function “The Palm Fountain”, Palm Jumeirah’s newest waterfront attraction, will strive to break a Guinness World Record (GWR) title. The fountain’s super shooter, spread over 14,000 sq. ft. of seawater can stand tall at 105 meters and come alive with more than 3,000 LED lights.
The attraction is Dubai’s only multicolour fountain and it is a celebration of the revival and desire of Dubai to reach for the sky.
Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, said: “Nakheel Malls is proud to launch The Palm Fountain, a celebration of Dubai’s resilience and building on the expanding portfolio of iconic attractions on Palm Jumeirah. As pioneers of retail and lifestyle destinations in Dubai, the launch of The Palm Fountain is a testament to our commitment to support retailers and push boundaries to provide our customers with unique experiences. We look forward to the inspiration this will bring customers at The Pointe, residents of Palm Jumeirah, our retailers, tourists and the wider community”.
Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), said: “The Palm Fountain is yet another incredible addition to Dubai’s list of world-famous landmarks and is sure to be a big draw among residents and visitors alike. Its launch further cements the city’s status as a must-visit destination where guests from around the world can experience the best sights and sounds as well as unrivalled retail and tourist spaces. The Pointe’s standing as one of Dubai’s premier dining and leisure destinations has been further elevated with the unveiling of this record-breaking new attraction.”
The Palm Fountain will have 20 tailor-made shows running daily from sunset to midnight with five different shows while swinging to a variety of popular songs like Khaleeji, pop, classic, foreign and so on. The show will be conducted in every 30 minutes and the duration of the water show will be three minutes.
Shaddy Gaad, Senior Marketing Manager – MENA, Guinness World Records said: “This is a great addition to Dubai’s long list of attractions that make this city iconic. GWR is in the process of verifying the largest fountain and we look forward to hopefully seeing this world-class landmark being declared Officially Amazing.”
