Budding photographers will enjoy exploring the stunning Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai. There are plenty of incredible places to capture inside and out – here’s some inspiration and incredible things you didn't know about the famous towers.
Soaring high above Dubai’s financial district, the towers are among the most iconic in the world. Comprising two equilateral triangles, the exterior was inspired by traditional Islamic themes. The landmark is home to an Office Tower, Hotel Tower and The Boulevard, an upscale retail and dining complex. Construction began in 1996 and the towers opened in 2000.
If you’re lucky enough to witness one of Dubai’s stunning sunsets (especially prevalent during the winter months) Jumeirah Emirates Towers provides the perfect backdrop.
There are 56 floors
The 56-floor hotel is adjacent to the Dubai International Financial Centre (more commonly known as DIFC), the Dubai World Trade Centre and The Dubai Mall, making the property one of Dubai’s leading city lifestyle destinations and a place you can effortlessly switch between business and leisure.
The lift moves at four metres per second
Open, inviting and buzzing with activity, the lobby’s focal point is the 30-metre high atrium and the four glass elevators that swiftly move from top to bottom, covering four metres per second.
The skyline is rather impressive
The hotel’s location makes it perfect for capturing the other amazing skyscrapers lining the famous Sheikh Zayed Road. Explore outside the hotel and the grounds and you’ll find no shortage of interesting buildings and architecture to capture.
There's a salt water floatation pool
Imagine receiving the refreshing benefits of eight hours of deep sleep in just one hour? Research has shown that flotation therapy based on the Dead Sea phenomenon provides relaxation like no other. At Jumeirah Emirates Towers this special treatment is re-created in a salt-water floatation tank at Talise Spa. This futuristic pool uses 300kg of Epsom salts dissolved in approximately 200 gallons of water, which is heated to body temperature, effectively creating the sensation of floating in mid-air, simulating zero gravity.
