True luxury can mean different things to different people. Luxury in terms of hospitality can be defined by a team of highly dedicated staff willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that no request goes unanswered.
Armani Hotel Dubai, opened in 2010, is a ten-story hotel with 160 rooms and suites. It is the first hotel by fashion designer Giorgio Armani. Bearing all the Armani signature details in the carefully curated space with Eramose stone floors, zebrawood panels, and custom-made furnishings, it’s no surprise that everything here is tastefully designed! The hotel style is chic and minimalist – so much so, that it’s easy to get lost!
One of only two hotels (the other one is in Milan) launched by the legendary designer, much of Armani Hotel Dubai’s appeal is also defined by its location. Situated at Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai, the world’s most luxurious hotel occupies the first eight floors and levels 38 and 39 of the record-breaking tower, and boasts absolutely stunning views of the city! The hotel overlooks the Dubai Fountain, Souk Al Bahar dining district, and the new Dubai Opera house. It also, not surprisingly, has direct access to the sprawling Dubai Mall. There is convenient access to the city’s best shops, restaurants and cultural attractions, plus a dedicated entrance to the tower. It’s also moments from Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, which boasts restaurants, cafés and a steady stream of supercars.
With all the amenities one would normally expect (such as award-winning restaurants, a lounge, a deluxe spa and various Armani goods) what really sets this hotel apart is the “warm, Italian-style service”; for instance, each guest is assigned a personal Lifestyle Manager who handles everything from arranging childcare to landing difficult bookings of the hottest restaurants and events out there. The idea of it is to provide guests with a “‘home-away-from-home” experience. Service is especially slick in the signature Armani/Ristorante, where staff are knowledgeable and charming.
Facilities include an arrow-shaped pool with a suntrap terrace and background music that helps mask Dubai’s ever-present soundtrack of construction! The spa features a thermal area with a sauna, dry-heat laconium and steam room and treatment rooms with adjustable massage tables that are so plush you’ll struggle not to nod off!

• Fitness centre
