Wow, This is pathetic. Who would want to go to an artificial island to stare at a dirty nasty city, please. I live in the "islands" and this is just ridic. I'll take my days bartending in Tortola making shit money over this superficial mound of soulless nothingness. Beauty comes from nature, not man.

Phil, well spotted, this is a skimmer pool rather than an infinity. Much cheaper to build, looks like some thing from the 70s.
Debbie, very true, very sterile. Looks like the whole place has 2 and a half palm trees. Had they told me, I could have gone them containers after containers of coconut palms from Sri Lanka for literally coconuts and made the place look like a real tropical island.
The landscape architect!!!! sticks a classic looking roman looking fountain right in the middle, in what is supposed to look very minimalistic, cool and trendy.
On the positive side, well done for providing us some thing else to do here in this wonderful city. Kind of fed up with the mall and Imax. Cant do it any more.

I just read it cost AED 60M for the island and to furnish it ... and it looks like it ... looks like they got a deal at Dragonmart. The sand looks like gravel, and the other islands surrounding it look like, well dirty gravel. And the pool is not an infinity pool, I guess the person writing the 'About' doesn't know what an infinity pool actually is. Oh well. One day 'The World' will be amazing, but not for a while yet.

This place will definitely make a killing off the loads of tacky, obnoxious people. Add it to the list of Dubai clubs and bars with mediocre food and overpriced everything, buoyed by a good location and limited competition.
