Armani Hotel Dubai opens in Burj Khalifa

27 Apr 2010

(MENAFN) Armani Hotel Dubai, a luxury hotel crafted by designer Giorgio Armani, opened its doors today as the first landmark tenant in the world’s tallest skyscraper, Gulf News reported.

The Italian designer attended the opening ceremony, which was delayed a week because of travel chaos from the Icelandic volcano. He said his goal was to build a comfortable and stylish hotel that would leave an impression.

Armani was joined by the chairman of Burj Khalifa’s developer Emaar Properties, which has a partnership to open more Armani-branded hotels, including the next one in Milan. They have not disclosed financial details of their partnership.

Armani’s Dubai outpost stretches from the base of the spindly, metal-and-glass Burj through the eighth floor, then skips some two dozen stories before continuing on floors 38 and 39. It includes multiple restaurants, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool.

Dubai’s newest five-star hotel is the first part of the 2,717 foot (828 meters) Burj Khalifa to open to the public since the 124th-floor observation deck welcomed its first visitors in January.
