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 great night out in the Hotels Nightclub
Bav74

Me and my friends visited Armani Prive on 3rd September for a girls night out and to celebrate a friends birthday. As I had a great time last time I made contact with Dario, who remembered me and arranged everything for me. He had a space for us at the VIP section and also arranged for the drinks to be available at the table rather than having to go to the Bar every time, this way we could concentrate on Drinking, Dancing and Enjoying the night.

Like I said when me and the Girl arrived at Armani Prive we were welcomed with open arms by Jitin, who remembered us from the previous visit a number of months ago. He welcomed us into the club and we went down into the club. Dario came and welcomed us and was extremely happy to see us. We all love you Dario and can not wait to come to Armani again on my next trip to Dubai. No other nightclub is worth visiting when you get such good reception and service here and it is one of the most prestigious clubs in Dubai being at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa.

We had a server attending to every one of our needs named Ali, he was absolutely amazing and a good laugh as he happily danced with us and ensured we enjoyed the night. He also ensured our glasses were not left empty.

Generally the ambience, the clientele, and music were all good, however it wasn't my type of music, but we still has a ball. Drinks were free flowing and Dario kept asking every now and then when he had a few minutes, if we were ok.

Would I go here again, the answer is yes for sure. Dario, Ali and Jitin, please don't leave Armani as you make this place what it is and it is a happening place.

Hope to see you all again very soon, especially on one of your Bollywood nights. Dario I will keep in touch.
