Nakheel Malls, a leading developer of retail experiences, said its premier lifestyle and dining destination in Dubai, The Pointe, is gearing up for the launch of the world’s largest fountain, The Palm Fountain.
Spread over 14,000 sq ft of sea water, the fountain’s super shooter will stand tall at 105 m and come alive with over 3,000 LED lights. The attraction is the only multicoloured fountain in Dubai and a celebration of Dubai’s resurgence and ambition to aim for the sky, said the statement from Nakheel Mall.
On the day of the launch, visitors at The Pointe will be treated to an entire day of festivities, with all-day events and competitions from The Pointe’s restaurants, starting at 4pm.
An array of live entertainment has been lined up including multiple DJ sets, dance shows, performers, a magical fireworks show, it added.
Managing Director Omar Khoory 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, noted Khoory.
"We look forward to the inspiration this will bring customers at The Pointe, residents of Palm Jumeirah, our retailers, tourists and the wider community," he added.
The Palm Fountain will have 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between sunset to midnight (7pm to 12am) while swaying to an array of popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classic, international and more. Each show will last for three minutes and will be performed every 30 minutes.
Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment CEO Ahmed Al Khaja 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," he added.
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. We are in the process of verifying the largest fountain and look forward to hopefully seeing this world-class landmark being declared Officially Amazing."
Nakheel Malls said the day-long event is open to the public upon registration, and the first 5,000 customers who arrive will receive a free LED wristband.
Free shuttle buses will be available to take visitors from Nakheel Mall to The Pointe every 30 minutes, it added.
