Business Bay, Dubai, UAE

The iconic 2B+G+82 storey twin towers which were completed in November 2012, dominate the surroundings and provide a dramatic introduction to the Business bay area. It is the tallest dedicated hotel in the world at a height of 355.35m, securing its place in the Guinness World Records.

This flagship project for Emirates Airlines Hotel Division has 1380 Standard guest rooms, 240 Suites, 4 Presidential suites, a Banquet hall, an Auditorium, 18 Shops, 19 Restaurants and a Spa.

The form is inspired by the date palm - a symbol deeply entrenched in the Arabian culture. The towers are symmetrically placed on the 7-storey high podium to get the best views of the Burj Khalifa, Business Bay and the sea. The podium houses all the public areas, restaurants, banquet hall and the essential back of house areas. The grand entrance lobby is 4 floors high and overlooks the Business Bay. The 1000-capacity banquet hall has an independent access for smooth functioning. The podium terrace has one of the largest spas in Dubai and is beautifully landscaped with gardens and swimming pool.
