Dubai developer takes leisure to new heights with one of the world's tallest infinity pools

You can see Dubai's famous man-made Palm Jumeriah Islands from space - but soon you'll be able to see it from the comfort a swimming pool.

Developer Nakheel is drawing close to completing the ambitious 775 square metres, 930,000-litre infinity pool. 

The pool will be 210 metres above ground, and offer 360 degree views across Dubai.

The swimming pool is to be attached to The Palm Tower - a newly built luxury hotel and residential complex.

The Palm Tower will cost $372 million to build and it's estimated it will be finished by the end of this year, reports CNN.

However, construction hasn't been easy as high winds made lifting 2,000 tons of glass and 1,200 tons of steel a challenge.

The Tower's developer says 300-metre tall cranes were used to lift the materials in. 

The Palm Tower will also have a restaurant, an observatory and an interactive museum.
