We study the properties of the Polyakov loop in strongly coupled gauge plasmas that are conjectured to be dual to five-dimensional theories of gravity coupled to a nontrivial single scalar field. We find a gravity dual that can describe the thermodynamic properties and also the expectation value of the Polyakov loop in the deconfined phase of quenched SU(3) QCD up to 3T c.
