The Palm Fountain at The Pointe: Largest Fountain in the World

The Pointe in Palm Jumeirah has broken the official Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Fountain on October 22, 2020. Simply called “The Palm Fountain“, this is the much-awaited dancing water fountain by property developer Nakheel.

Property developer Nakheel announced that built a Dancing water fountain in Palm Jumeirah. The project is worth AED 66 million and is located at The Pointe, its new, AED 800 million waterfront dining and entertainment destination on the artificial island.

Dubai’s Dancing Water Fountain at the Burj Khalifa is one of the great attractions in the city so this new choreographed fountain will be another thing that residents and tourists can look forward to having in the future.

Nakheel Palm Jumeirah Builds Largest Multi-colored Dancing Fountain in the World at The Pointe

Nakheel has appointed Beijing Water Design, one of China’s largest fountain specialists, to deliver and operate the fountain. A celebration of Dubai’s creativity and ambition, 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.

The Palm Fountain launch, during which strict health and safety protocols were observed, included an array of live entertainment including a magical firework display. Two of the Middle East’s much loved and award-winning Disney songs – Let It Go from Frozen and A Whole New World from Aladdin – were also played for the momentous occasion, and are part of the fountain’s regular programming.

In case you are wondering what music songs are being played in The Pointe’s Palm Fountain, you can check out the video below during our visit when we dined in one of the restaurants. We captured videos of the fountain shows every 30-minute interval starting 7pm. Watch the video below:

List of Songs at The Palm Fountain Show

We visited The Pointe one evening and sat in one of the restaurants. We watched the fountain show starting at 7pm. Check out these other videos below and the songs they played during our visit below. Note that these songs are not played in order.

1. I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston

I Have Nothing song by American singer Whitney Houston from the hit movie “The Bodyguard”. While the Dubai Fountain in Burj Khalifa Lake has the “I Will Always Love You” track, this Dubai Palm Fountain has another Whitney Houston hit. Play the video clip below:

2. Opera No.2 by Vitas

Opera No. 2 is a famous song by Russian male singer Vitaly Vladasovich Grachev, known professionally as Vitas. We thought this song was sung by more than one person and upon searching online, we were surprised to find out that there is only one person singing the whole song. Check out the clip below:

3. Lm3allem by Saad Lamjarred

LM3Allem by Moroccan singer Saad Lamjarred. This is a popular song where its YouTube video earned a Guinness World Record achievement after garnering 700 million views within three months. Play the fountain video clip below:

4. Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars

Uptown Funk song by Bruno Mars. This was the finale show during our visit. This is an upbeat song that was nice to watch. It was one of the best fountain display we saw.

5. Game of Thrones Theme Song

The famous Game of Thrones theme song (introduction) played at The Palm. This one was a quick fountain show:

6. Arabic Song

Not sure what the title of this song is. This is an Arabic song that was one of the first songs played during the evening:

7. Intro Song

I’m not sure as well if this was part of the lineup of songs to be played during that evening but this was the first fountain show during the night of our visit:
