PICTURES: Zero Gravity reveals awesome new pool



Ever since Zero Gravity announced that they would be opening a pool, it’s been the talk of the town, and the much-anticipated expansion is finally open.

The expansion adds 2,000 square metres to the beach club, including a 39 metre glass-fronted infinity pool with views onto the Arabian Gulf and Dubai Marina. But it’s not just a spectacular new place to take a dip – they’ve also unveiled an 800 square foot multi-use stage with the highest audio and visual equipment from around the world.

“Every single element of this expansion has been conceptualised by Zero Gravity. We have kept our original vision for the venue – as a complete day-to-night experience – in mind right from the ground up, even drawing pictures for our suppliers to follow,” says General Manager Peter Skudutis.

“Everything has been custom-made, to ensure it fitted our very specific brief. From top-of-the-range Spanish marble, to the 60cm x 60cm rain showers in our incredible bathrooms and 22-metre acrylic panel for the pool, which was shipped, in one piece, from the Netherlands! If it wasn’t perfect, it went back. As an example, I can tell you we went through eight bathroom designs before going ahead.

“The pool expansion reveals another layer to Zero Gravity, as a complete, globally unique, lifestyle destination. This second phase has been a year in the making. And it is worth the wait.”

The pool has a 22 metre curved acrylic panel, which creates an amazing light display after dark. “The window is made from full cast acrylic. It is UV resistant; stronger and clearer than glass, and shaped in a symbolic Zero Gravity curve,” says Underwater Windows CEO, Jan Hermsen. “It is breathtaking when you stand on the beach, as the pool and sea seem to become one. By night, the pool lights up and creates a completely different, magical feel.”

Almost everything in the new expansion is custom-made, with the idea that Zero Gravity will have “the best that money can buy.”

It certainly seems like they’ve achieved that goal.
