Meraas have given us some truly stunning developments over the years, from the Miami-influenced La Mer to the unique Last Exit. So it comes as little surprise that their latest venture is also a spectacular one.

Bluewaters Residences is part island, part uber-modern city. Both halves combing in a beautiful fashion to offer a living destination like no other. Located off the coast of Jumeirah Beach Residence opposite THE BEACH, Bluewaters is a lively, family-oriented destination with a diverse range of places and experiences that will absolutely spoil you with choices.

The world’s largest observation wheel

It’s hard to miss Bluewaters Island, a fact owed mostly to Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel that also happens to call the island its home. Ain Dubai will allow residents and tourists alike to see landmarks, such as Dubai Marina, Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa from a whole new perspective. Another interesting fact about Ain Dubai is that the behemoth structure is almost 25% heavier than the iconic Eiffel Tower, weighing in at approximately 9,000 tonnes total.

Retail and F&B Options

The one-of-a-kind retail experience at Bluewaters is bound to keep you busy for days! Spanning across the boulevard, the ground and first floor levels will have 132 outlets with an additional 32 units under residential buildings. The retail options will range from shopping outlets, restaurants, cafes and entertainment concepts and experiences. Apart from the wheel, one can also find a multitude (over 164!) of cafes, restaurants, entertainment concepts and experiences, a beach club and even a ferry dock.

Delicious cuisines await both residents and visitors, all the way from high-end restaurants to more intimate bistros. The sheer number of food options available are sure to put any destination in Dubai to shame. Parking will be easy to come by, as the 2,400 capacity parking lot should provide more than ample room for everyone.

Getting there

Getting here isn’t an issue either, as it is within touching distance of Dubai Marina and is just a short 45 minute drive from the Abu Dhabi airport or 20 minutes away from Downtown Dubai. Connected to the mainland by a direct road link from Sheikh Zayed Road, Bluewaters will operate the Group Rapid Transit service that offers passengers a unique travel experience via a driverless vehicle system. There will also be a 265 metre pedestrian bridge linking the island to the beachfront at Jumeirah Beach Residence.

Your stay is sorted

Visitors who find it hard to part with the beautiful island can instead opt to stay at one of the two luxury five-star hotels at Bluewaters. The two Caesars’ hotels – of Las Vegas fame – are the first Caesars’ branded hotels in the Gulf. Set at the tip of the island with breathtaking views of the sea, they are havens for those looking for a seafront retreat. The hotels will have relaxing beach club and distinct dining offerings that cater to the most discerning guests and visitors.
