The Address Beach Resort, Dubai: Guinness World Record holder for world's highest infinity pool

Travel may still be restricted, but that doesn't stop us from dreaming of holidays in far off destinations once the borders are fully open again.

One resort in Dubai is hoping its new claim to fame will entice visitors to the emirate.

The Address Beach Resort is home to the world's highest infinity rooftop pool, as awarded by Guinness World Records last month.

Located 294 metres above the ground, the pool on the 77th floor has unbeatable views across the city and beyond.

With a length of 94m, there is a lot of pool to cool off in, and plenty of cabanas and sun loungers to chill out and top up those tans.

The young 'uns are catered for in the three other swimming pools in the resort, which also includes beach access, spas and restaurants.
