The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah, Nakheel Malls’ new AED800 million ($217 million) dining and entertainment destination, is gearing up for New Year’s Eve and Dubai’s peak travel season after a grand opening, attended by more than 10,000 people.

The Pointe is counting down to its 2019 celebrations, which include a host of dining and entertainment options – and Dubai’s best view of Atlantis, The Palm’s famous New Year fireworks display.

There will also be a live DJ, roaming entertainment and prizes to be won. Guests are advised to book early to secure their spot.

Omar Khoory, managing director of Nakheel Malls, said: “We are delighted to launch this new gem at Palm Jumeirah that will mesmerise guests the moment they arrive. Dubai is a cultural melting pot – and our collection of restaurants and entertainment at The Pointe truly reflects this.

"We are welcoming more and more guests each day and are busy counting down to New Year’s Eve, for which The Pointe is the destination to be.”

Managed by Nakheel Malls, the retail arm of Nakheel, The Pointe features over 100 dining and retail outlets.

Its centrepiece is a fountain with water shows that can be viewed from The Pointe’s range of waterfront dining spots.

Located 5km out to sea at the tip of the island, across the bay from Atlantis The Palm, The Pointe is also home to a 1.5km promenade.

There is also a cinema, children’s play area, supermarket, gyms, beauty salons and unique gifting concepts, as well as a car park for 1,600 vehicles.
