FIVE to launch new Dubai hotel with 271 swimming pools

800ft tower set to open later this year in Jumeirah Village Circle


A second luxurious hotel opening from FIVE is penned in for a 2018 opening, and this could well be one of the city’s most ambitious hotels to date.

Ever wanted to get out of the city, take to the skies and have your own private swimming pool, all at the same time?

Well, FIVE – the operators behind the premium FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai hotel on, well, the Palm – will be opening a second Dubai location before the end of the year.

It will be coming to Jumeirah Village Circle, as a range of construction projects in the area begin nearing completion.

The biggest selling point for FIVE Jumeirah Village Dubai, by far, is what must surely be the most swimming pools of any hotel in Dubai, if not beyond, because there will be 271 – yes, 271 – swimming pools constructed in this sweeping, 800ft tower.

Basically, every apartment in the building will have its own pool, even those at the top of the tower, because as you can see from the images above, swimming pools line the edges of the hotel.

The majority of those pools will service the 221 one and two-bedroom hotel apartments and the 33 four-bedroom apartments in the hotel.

There will also be 247 hotel rooms and suites for guests, totalling more than 500 rooms, suites and apartments throughout the complex.
“The building structure for the award-winning FIVE Jumeirah Village is now complete and interiors and fit out are expected to be finished by Q4 2018," a spokesperson for FIVE told Time Out Dubai. "Hotel operations are expected to begin shortly afterwards. FIVE Hospitality has started to build its team of staff and has already appointed an experienced General Manager."

"We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming guests to experience our unique hospitality brand.”

Meanwhile, in related news, Yas Viceroy (the former management company of FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai) on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is set to undergo a major rebrand, and will soon operate under the umbrella of luxury chain W Hotel – a Marriott International brand.

From Sunday July 1, the hotel will go through a fairly hefty refurbishment, during which time it will remain open to the public, before it embraces its new identity later this year.
