The 828 metres (2716.5 feet, yes that is over half a mile!) of beauty and magnificence that is the Burj Khalifa, make it a very appropriate place for style guru Giorgio Armani to create an extraordinarily stylish hotel.
The “Burj” is the tallest building in the world and the Armani Hotel occupies 11 floors - 160 stunning rooms of understated and sophisticated elegance with curvilinear walls and custom-created fabrics, just as you’d expect from one of the world’s leading fashion designers. Floors are covered with Japanese Tatami and bathrooms feature gorgeous grey stone from Alicante, Spain. Furnishings are bespoke Armani Casa pieces which reflect the tower’s stunning architecture and natural light, creating an atmosphere of calm serenity.
The Armani Hotel Dubai provides sophisticated dining options in each of its 7 food and beverage outlets. There’s Armani/Ristorante the signature Italian restaurant and the renowned Armani/Privé hosting resident and touring DJs. Armani/Peck offers delicious but prompt service with signature dishes available for take out for a desert picnic or Gulf yacht cruise.
The extensive Armani/SPA offers sequential bathing and personal consultations while at the Armani/Galleria you can enjoy a round of haute couture shopping for fashion accessories, Armani/Fiori for flowers and Armani/Dolci for Italian sweets. It is not surprising that Dubai prides itself on its retail therapy ethos. Indeed it may be the only city in the world where shopping is actually described not as a ‘pastime,’ not even a ‘sport’, but an ‘extreme sport.’
Directly facing the The Dubai Fountain, Armani Hotel Dubai gives easy access to the Burj Khalifa’s Observation Deck with Dubai Mall, chock full of a luxury global brands, superb restaurants and the most extraordinary aquarium just a short walk away. It’s all a long way from the piracy and pearl diving that sustained Dubai in recent centuries.
