Crystal Lagoons presents 40 hectare manmade lagoon making it the world's largest

The world’s largest manmade lagoon is to be constructed in Dubai as part of the planned Mohammed Bin Rashid City - District One development. Headed by Meydan Group and Sobha Group through a joint venture, the $7bn residential development will centre on the newly-announced pool, designed by Crystal Lagoons.

At 40 hectares, the lagoon will be four times bigger than the current largest pool in the world at the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile. Once completed the Mohammad Bin Rashid City lagoon will provide unprecedented space for residents to swim, engage in water sports and relax.

Kevin P. Morgan, CEO of Crystal Lagoons explains: “Caribbean landscapes are no longer exclusive to tropical destinations. Our pioneering concept and state-of-the-art technology which allows for sustainable, swimmable, turquoise lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at low cost anywhere in the world, is proving extremely popular with our growing list of partners across the Middle East.

“Dubai gives us an outstanding strategic position in the Middle East, and the opportunity to participate in a world-class development that adds prestige to our current project portfolio.”
