The World’s Tallest Hotel to Open in Dubai … again
In 2018, the 356-meter (1,168 feet) Gevora Hotel in Dubai became the tallest hotel within the world, complete with certification as a Guinness record . But the Gevora’s reign will be short-lived.
The 75-story tower is to be eclipsed by a slender glass skyscraper under construction just a brief chase away in Dubai’s Marina district.
The Ciel Tower will reach 360.4 meters upon completion, developer the primary Group has confirmed, featuring 1,042 rooms and suites spread across 82 floors.
The design from architects NORR, creators of the Atlantis, the Palm hotel, seeks to maximise the worth of such altitude.
A glass observation deck will offer 360-degree views of the town . Visitors also can absorb the sights from a rooftop swimming bath and restaurants.
Guests will experience “panoramic views of the coastline and iconic landmarks including the Palm Jumeirah (man-made island),” a spokesperson for the primary Group said.
he design won three prizes at the International Property Awards in December, for Best International Hotel Architecture, Best Hotel Architecture Arabia, and Best High-rise Architecture Arabia.
Ciel Tower also will feature a spa, business facilities, and “multiple award-winning restaurants” which can be announced within the coming months, the spokesperson said.
Construction work has been ongoing since 2016 at the vacant lot in Dubai Marina, a serious hub of development featuring a cluster of supertall skyscrapers including the 306-meter (1,004 feet) Cayan Tower and 425-meter (1,394 feet) Marina 101 building.
Ciel Tower is scheduled to open in late 2022 or early 2023.
This will add yet one more Dubai entrant to the list of the world’s tallest hotels, which already includes the Gevora, the JW Marriot Marquis (355 meters, 1,165 feet), the Rose Rayhaan (333 meters, 1,093 feet), and the Burj al Arab (321 meters, 1,053 feet).
The title of tallest hotel is usually applied only to buildings used wholly as hotels. However, the very best hotel incorporated into a building is currently the Rosewood Guangzhou, which occupies the highest 39 floors of the CTF Finance Centre within the Chinese city, reaching 530 meters (1,739 feet) at its summit.
The First Group will seek formal certification for Ciel Tower because the tallest hotel within the world before its opening date.
