Armani Hotel Dubai will further also establish Burj Khalifa as one of the world’s unmatched luxury destinations.”

Armani Hotel Dubai will be home to eight unique dining experiences. The hotel will also include Armani/Privé, an upscale lounge, and the world’s first in-hotel Armani/SPA, which offers 12,000 square feet of wellness, where guests can enjoy treatment rooms, thermal suites, a fitness centre and an outdoor swimming pool. The hotel will be home to the Armani/Dolci chocolates store; an Armani/Fiori, a florist; and an Armani/Galleria showcasing select couture accessories.

Covering over an area of 269,000 sq ft, across the concourse, ground floor and levels 1 to 8 and levels 38 & 39 of Burj Khalifa, Armani Hotel Dubai has 160 rooms.
