The World's Tallest Dedicated Hotel Opens Later This Year In Dubai

Dubai luxury hotels have made their mark over the last few years, including the Movenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate with its eclectic architecture, décor and cuisine;  and who could forget the grand opening party of Atlantis The Palm in 2008 with Australian diva, Kylie Minogue headlining at the event in front of VIP guests including Amit Kumar, Mischa Barton, Chris Tucker, Michael Jordan, Wesley Snipes and Lindsay Lohan?

But by the end of this year, Dubai will lay claim to another five-star hotel phenomenon when the 1,606-bedroom JW Marriott Marquis Dubai opens its doors and becomes the tallest dedicated hotel building in the world.   A staggering 355 metres high (1,164 feet), it is just 26 meters (85 feet) shorter than the Empire State Building in New York.

With plenty of facilities for both the leisure and business traveller, the Marriott Marquis Dubai will offer a choice of nine mouth-watering restaurants including Atul Kochhar's Rang Mahal Indian restaurant; Prime 68, a boutique steakhouse; Positano for Italian coastal cuisine; an Arabic restaurant and La Farine, an attractive boulangerie and social meeting spot.  For panoramic city views, those with a head for heights will enjoy the Vault Lounge on floors 71 and 72, which will be the place to sit and literally watch the world fly by!  The hotel will also offer five lounges, two ballrooms, 24 meeting rooms and 5,100 square metres of event space. 

For rest and relaxation, the Saray Spa is designed to ensure mind and body renewal, with treatments such as a milk and honey wrap, an Arabic coffee awakener, a lemon and mint body polish and pomegranate renewal treatment.  For sun worshippers, an enormous pool deck will cover the seventh floor of the hotel with a 32 metre swimming pool and deck with elegant cabanas, lounges and umbrellas.

The Marriott Marquis Dubai is certain to make its mark on the Dubai skyline, however, the world’s tallest hotel accolade still goes to The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong.  At 490 metres high and soaring from the 102nd floor to the 118th floor of the International Commerce Centre, this Kowloon hotel boasts unrivalled views of Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Island and the New Territories.
