We all know Armani, the great designer… but did you know there are 2 Armani hotels? One in Milan and one in Dubai. I visited the one in Dubai and was very impressed! Located in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, the Armani hotel is a very exclusive 5 star hotel with great facilities.
As soon as you enter the hotel, you will actually “feel” the luxury: one style, simple but oh so elegant! One of the nicest hotel design I have ever seen! It feels so serene and exclusive. Everywhere you go, you will be very welcome by the friendliest staff you could ever wish for. They used dark wood and marble all over the place and everything was immaculately clean.
The hallways are special! I first couldn’t find the doors, but once you know where they are you will appreciate that they are “hidden”. The rooms are elegantly decorated with modern touches and features. There is an iPad in every room which guests can use when they need information about the hotel or want to make reservations for one of their fabulous restaurants. You can even see what’s going on in the hallway on your personal iPad via door camera and doors can be opened with one touch. Very convenient! Bathroom is spacious and has a bathtub and separate (rainhead) shower.
The Armani hotel in Dubai has 7 restaurants with different kinds of food. I had dinner at Deli (Italian cuisine) and thoroughly enjoyed the food on the large terrace with a fantastic view of the fountains. Service was great too! We never had to wait too long before we got our courses. The food was of a very good quality! The beef carpaccio was to die for! Oh… and the desserts… especially the ice cream, was just perfect. Do save some space for that, you won’t be sorry! After dinner my mother got a nice “Armani rose” which was appreciated very much and is a great touch!
Armani is a great designer and now I know not only for clothes… This hotel is a high class 5 star hotel and without doubt one of the best Dubai has to offer!
