These include Jumeirah Islands, Deira Islands, Al Furjan, The Gardens, The World, Dragon City, and Palm Jumeirah itself. According to Omar Khoory, Nakheel chief assets and hospitality officer, the View is sure to attract both national and local tourists.
“Our research indicated that about 60 to 70 percent of Dubai’s tourists visit Palm Jumeirah, however, they can’t see the architecture of the island from it,” he said to Arabian Business. “This is why we decided that we need a viewing deck from where all tourists can see a 360 degrees view of the Palm.”
The View at the Palm can currently accommodate up to 300 people at a time. Full capacity is 8,000 people per day. The venue will be limiting visitors for the time being due to COVID-19 restrictions.
