Deepest Pool In The World – Deep Dive Dubai

Visitors can free dive and explore an entire sunken city at Deeb Dive Dubai, the world’s deepest swimming pool.

The world’s tallest building and the world’s largest mall are already located in Dubai. The world famous city now has the distinction of having the world’s deepest swimming pool.

Deep Dive Dubai debuted on July 7, barely ten days after Guinness World Records designated it the world’s deepest dive pool.

The new indoor pool has a depth of about 200 feet and a capacity of nearly 3.7 million gallons of water. It also has a large underwater attraction that looks like a “sunken city” that divers can explore on their own or with a guide.

Explore a Sunken City in Deep Dive Dubai

Dubai’s new vertical diving pool contains the vestiges of a forgotten sunken city, with graffiti, collapsing structures, and a big photo of Marilyn Monroe hanging on the wall. There’s an arcade featuring a classic Pac-Man game, foosball, and a pool table, as well as an apartment complex and library.

Guinness World Records has certified the pool as the world’s deepest swimming pool for diving. It holds the equivalent of six Olympic swimming pools. According to Deep Dive Dubai, it is 15 meters deeper than any other dive site.

According to the firm, the facility, which is shaped like an oyster in honor of the UAE’s pearl diving legacy, is also the region’s largest underwater film studio.

Beginners can dive to a depth of 40 feet, while certified divers can explore the entire pool with or without a guide. Certified divers can also “free dive” while attached to a fixed ascent line, which means diving without a tank and relying solely on their own air. There are also courses offered to educate a variety of new talents.

Bookings are only accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Will Smith, an actor and rapper, documented his visit in an Instagram post that has received over 3 million likes in just four days.

Deep Dive Dubai’s pool is 196 feet deep and contains 3.7 million gallons of freshwater, roughly the same equivalent of six Olympic-sized swimming pools. Scuba diving and freediving are two ways for swimmers to explore the pool. The pool also boasts 56 underwater cameras monitoring the sunken city.

The pool breaks the world record of 147 feet set by Poland’s Deepspot pool. According to the website, due to the scale of the underwater city, numerous dives are required to thoroughly explore it.

The new Deep Dive Dubai pool is regulated at a pleasant 86 degrees Fahrenheit, which should make exploring the depths of the pool a comfortable experience for divers. The sheer magnitude of this new attraction, has captured the world’s imagination and is creating a long waiting list of visitors eager to try out the new pool.

The One – “World’s Most Expensive Home” Has 5 Pools

Bel Air home has gone into receivership and set to sell for far below original $500M asking price

Published

on

"The One" is one of the largest custom luxury homes in the world and has 6 swimming pools.

“The One” – an extravagant luxury mansion – has been placed into receivership in order to pay off a startling amount of debt. The concept house was owned by developer Nile Niami, whose dream of constructing “The One,” a massive spec mansion on a five-acre Bel-Air parcel, has been buried beneath $165 million in defaulted loans and debts. The property will be sold to the highest bidder for a price that will almost certainly be significantly less than Niami’s 2017 fantasy ask of $500 million.

Twenty bedrooms, a running track, four bowling alleys, a nightclub, and two wine cellars comprise the ‘world’s most costly residence’.

British YouTube celebrity Producer Michael was granted access to the property in order to give the public its first glimpse of what is often regarded as one of the most, if not the most expensive private residence in the world.

Fast Facts About “The One” – Bel Air Mega Mansion

The Paul McClean-designed mega-mansion (which includes 42 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms, a 5,500-square-foot master suite, 5 pools, a 30-car garage with two car-display turntables, a moat, a 400-foot jogging track, and 360-degree views of Los Angeles) has been placed into receivership by Los Angeles County Superior Court and will be put on the market at a deep discount as soon as its court-appointed caretaker, Ted Lanes of Lansing takes receivership.

Even Niami admitted that building a home with 5 luxury pools (one of them an indoor pool) was probably overkill. In an interview with Curbed, he said “All those pools are probably not going to get very much use at all. “I think whoever is buying this house is going to have 10 other houses. Nobody buys a 100,000-square-foot house as their principal residence to use every day.”

Among the lenders demanding repayment regardless of how lavish Niami’s personal Xanadu was is Los Angeles billionaire Don Hankey of Hankey Capital, which loaned Niami over $115 million and slapped him with a default notice in March. Yogi Securities Holdings, which contributed over $36 million to “The One”, as well as Inferno Realty and Maybach Corporation Holdings, which each contributed $7 million. According to CNBC, the project is also approximately $1 million in debt to companies involved in air conditioning, concrete, and tool manufacturing.

Lanes is not taking ownership of the property — which, for the record, is only the third largest in the United States. Oheka Castle in New York (109,000 square feet) holds the top spot and then Winterthur in Delaware (96,000 square feet). He has no interest whatsoever in taking on the onerous debt associated with the property. Rather than that, Lanes must now obtain the appropriate construction permit to complete construction and obtain a certificate of occupancy, after which he will sell the property to repay creditors and contractors.

The construction costs for the home accumulated over time. Niami gave GQ his first public interview on the property six years ago in 2015, admitting he intended to put the home on the market for $500 million once the estate was completed.

The One - Paul McClean Designed Mega Mansion Has Gone Into Receivership

Like many other stately homes, “The One” has likely enough amenities such as a library, a 30-seat home theater, a four-lane bowling alley, a gym, a spa, and a chef’s kitchen — all of which are the hallmarks of custom luxury homes. However, buyers are rarely exposed to such elaborate — and quirky — amenities as a butterfly installation, a beauty salon, a cigar room, a 10,000-bottle wine cellar, a 200-person capacity philanthropy wing, and “floating pods” overlooking the city. Niami did show some constraint in nixing plans for a candy room, a frozen room, and the jellyfish tank walls he was planning.

The exterior of the mansion is spectacularly lavish, with a 50-car garage and a 10,000-square-foot sky deck with a putting green with 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Los Angeles, and the San Gabriel mountains. According to Architectural Digest, the mansion is ringed on three sides by a moat and features a 400-foot-long jogging track that appears to float above Los Angeles.

Niami purchased three ranches in 2012 for $28 million from “Space Invaders” heiress Rita Kogan and rolled them into a singular larger estate that is “The One”. According to Architectural Digest, it took 600 employees eight years to construct this enormous custom luxury home.

It is unknown at this time how much “The One” will finally sell for or when it will come to market. Although the house was not yet on the market earlier this year, it has already been featured by various social media personalities. Take a guided tour inside this incredible home. It has to be seen to be believed.
