THE WORLD’S LARGEST FOUNTAIN IS HERE!

14,000 sqft, 105 meters in height, 3000 LED lights!


As if you needed another reason to visit The Pointe, Dubai’s lifestyle destination on Palm Jumeirah. The retail and dining hub from Nakheel Malls will launch the world’s largest fountain ‘The Palm Fountain’ with a Guinness World Record attempt on Thursday, October 22.

Dubai’s latest attraction is spread over 14,000 sqft of seawater, will reach heights of 105 metres and is illuminated with over 3,000 LED lights! The Palm Fountain differentiates itself from the Dubai Fountains at Burj Khalifa because it is the only multi-coloured fountain in Dubai. 

The Palm Fountain will offer 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between sunset and midnight. While we wait with baited breathe as to which songs the fountains are expected to dance too, we’ve been informed that it will be a mix of Khaleeji, pop, classical and international hits. Each show will last for three minutes, with performances taking place every 30 minutes.
