Dubai’s Palm Fountain breaks Guinness Record as largest in the world

The Palm Fountain at The Pointe has secured the Guinness World Record for the ‘World’s Largest Fountain’, after a launch streamed live across the globe.  

The Palm Fountain is spread over 14,000 sq ft of sea water and is the only multi-coloured fountain in the city.  Its super shooter stands tall at 105 metres and comes alive with over 3,000 LED lights.

Omar Khoory, Managing Director of Nakheel Malls, which operates The Pointe, says: “Nakheel extends its gratitude to Dubai’s leadership as we secure the coveted title of World’s Largest Fountain. This is an historic moment which further underscores our commitment to bringing new and unique experiences to the city for the benefit of all stakeholders. As pioneers of retail and lifestyle destinations in Dubai, we look forward to the inspiration it will bring to visitors at The Pointe, residents of the UAE, our retailers, tourists and the international community.”

The Palm Fountain launch, during which strict health and safety protocols were observed, included an array of live entertainment including a firework display. 

The fountain is open to the public year-round from sunset to midnight, with over 20 bespoke shows with five different variations swaying to an array of popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classic and international. Shows last for three minutes and are performed every 30 minutes. To commemorate its launch, The Pointe has also unveiled a water swing open daily from 1pm to 10pm until October 29.
