Overview

The Review

The Armani Hotel Dubai is a truly unique experience, melding the eponymous fashion designer’s elegant, understated style with an extreme address in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building at 2,716 feet. For his debut hotel, Giorgio Armani has dressed it in distinctive furnishings, fabric wallpaper and limestone floors.

As I enter the lobby, employees in Armani suits, seemingly recruited from modeling agencies, greet me. I’m struck by the lobby’s dramatic C-shaped leather sectional and Arabic-style arches — grandeur tempered by Armani’s signature subdued color palette — and by the absence of a check-in desk (that drudgery happens out of the public eye).

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/10166/pgal-71505-1299199356-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”A different cuisine is served at each of the eight restaurants; Hashi specializes in sushi.”}My assigned host guides me to my room through futuristic zebrawood-paneled corridors trimmed with lights; the doors are flush with the walls and seem to float. In the 160 guestrooms, Armani’s familiar touch permeates every detail. Kingsize beds are wrapped tightly in checkered bedspreads like a birthday gift. The closets are intriguingly hidden behind panels, and the gently curving walls provide a subtly sophisticated reminder of the sky-high location.

A good cure for jet lag is the hotel’s outdoor pool and 12,000-square-foot spa on the third floor. It’s all a prelude to the on-site nightlife, which includes eight restaurants and a nightclub — at all of which fashion is (naturally) the theme. Global dance beats thump as videos of models in Armani play on a giant LED wall.

Elsewhere, hard-to-get Armani accessories are for sale at the hotel’s boutique, like watches and handbags from the Giorgio Armani Privé collection and an elegant selection of Italian sweets. Each of the restaurants dish out a different cuisine offering visitors a wide choice of culinary options that reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Dubai. Armani/Hashi presents a delectable take on traditional and modern cuisine and offers some of the best sushi in the city. Armani/Amal offers delightful Indian delicacies and a stunning view of the Dubai Fountain, which gives the city yet another superlative — the fountain is billed as the tallest performing one on earth.

A Gem in Dubai
Reviewed 1 week ago

I had a wonderful eight night stay at the Armani Hotel in Dubai. I was warmly welcomed upon arrival and was graciously given a beautiful room upgrade. The location is perfect as the hotel sits next to the Dubai mall. Every aspect of the hotel was world class. The hotel provides an outstanding breakfast buffet. I dined at all of the hotel’s restaurants and found them to be superb. Every need was catered to. I hope to return same time next year.

This was one of the best services I have received in Dubai. I went for my birthday and had a splendid time. The waiters were honestly so superb. They had fine etiquette when it came to the menu and desserts. Very friendly and very welcoming. I definitely will come back.
