The world's first Armani Hotel opens

Giorgio Armani can now add another accomplishment to his already glowing CV: the Armani Hotel in Dubai. He joins a select handful of designers who have worked with luxury hoteliers – among them Elie Saab, who brought his unique style to the Tiger Woods resort in Dubai, the late Gianni Versace and his Versace Palace in Australia, or Christian Lacroix and the Du Petit Moulin in Paris.

The Armani Hotel occupies the first eight floors as well as levels 38 and 39 of the Burj Khalifa, Dubai's tallest tower. This spectacular hotel is a distinctive reflection of Armani fashion designs that keeps in line with Armani Casa aesthetics: a minimalist, elegant and polished look that separates itself from the excess so frequently seen in other deluxe hotels of a similar standing.

With a total of 160 rooms and suites furnished with refined luxury, the Armani hotel truly represents a unique fusion of opulence and minimalism.
