The biggest and best rooftop pool in Dubai!

Published: February 5, 2017

We had a blast at The Address Dubai Marina with breathtaking views, tasty cocktails, fantastic food, great hospitality and the coolest infinity pool in Dubai.

After a good contact with Aafrin at The Address Hotel, we decided to come here at 6:00 PM so that we could enjoy both the daylight, sunset and darkness. Aafrin reserved a really good table for us at the terrace right by the infinity pool, with views among all the skyscrapers that surrounds the marina. This is probably the best view you can get from a rooftop bar located at the 4th floor.

The Address Dubai Marina is a 5-star luxurious hotel right in the middle of the marina. One of the best hotels in Dubai, according to many. And we’re about to agree.

Right after we sat down, we were treated with three super good cocktails. Two strawberry daiquiri and one mojito. Unfortunately, we didn’t bring our swim shorts. But people were swimming and enjoying the rooftop pool as we sat and drank on our refreshing cocktails. To bad for us, as the The Address Dubai Marina is considered as the best rooftop pool in Dubai.

As a non-guest of the hotel, you can use the pool area if you pay a smaller fee. Well worth every penny if you like to swim with a mighty view. The rooftop pool was also heated to 28 degrees, making it nice to swim here in the early evenings as well.

The Restaurant Manager, Mohit from The Address Hotel met up with us and showed us around the whole area and telling us about the hotel and their rooftop called Shades. Mohit was a super nice guy that really showed us what service is all about.

After the small tour around the rooftop, Mohit prepared us some more signature cocktails and also a plate of the finest food the restaurant had to offer.

The plate consisted in fine meat, chicken, fish, lamb, cheese, vegetables and tasty sauces. We all agreed that this was by far the best food of the whole trip and even some of the best food we had ever tasted. Everything was made fresh directly from the kitchen and BBQ located at the terrace.

If you visit this rooftop bar, you MUST try the food. Super delicious!

We also got the chance to chat a little with the General Manager, Jeroen Elmendorp which was a very nice and a fine gesture from the hotel. We talked a little about us and what we do and how we can help rooftops and hotels to gain more guests and visitors.

After the food and the meeting, we ordered a last round of cocktails and just sat and enjoyed the atmosphere and the view while sipping our drinks. The best thing about rooftops. Relaxation, nice food, tasty drinks, awesome view, attentive service and a harmonious atmosphere. The Address Dubai Marina had it all.
