Armani Hotel - Dubai
Armani Hotel in Dubai - The first Armani Hotel ever!
Welcome to a place where every element - look, texture, finish and design - is a statement and embodiment of the Armani vision. This is the full expression of one man's passion: a tribute to his unique aesthetic sensitivity and talents.
Yet the concept goes beyond style alone. To stay at an Armani Hotel is to experience something of Giorgio Armani's personality, and to gain a privileged insight into his take on beauty, drama and life's visual pleasures: the Armani Hotels & Resorts offer guests the same warm welcome that Giorgio Armani would extend to his own family and friends.
The opening of The Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa in Dubai will be followed by Armani Hotel Milano as the group has plans to open at least ten hotels and resorts in next ten years. Other developments underway include a resort in Marrakech, Morocco and Residence villas in Marassi, Egypt.

STAY WITH ARMANI
At The Armani Hotel Dubai
The Armani Hotels & Resorts reflect the style, spirit and philosophy of Giorgio Armani.
For Giorgio Armani, this is the realization of a long-held dream: to bring his sophisticated style to life in the most complete way, appealing to all the senses: look, touch and taste. Each of the guest rooms and residences bears his hallmark quality finish, achieving an original blend of the strikingly modern and the classically graceful. Here you will find great hospitality, and a restrained elegance in a refined atmosphere that flows through every space: the bedrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, spa and concierge area.
The Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa in Dubai
The Armani Hotel Dubai holds pride of place within the iconic Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building. The design is inspired by the geometrics of the desert flower and traditional patterns of Islamic architecture. It's a striking symbol of creativity, enterprise and invention.
The tower is the centerpiece of Downtown Burj Dubai. This is an area defined by superlatives: The Dubai Mall, one of the world's largest shopping and entertainment destinations; Emaar Boulevard, flanked by glamorous boutiques and designer names; and The Dubai Fountain, a captivating creation which spectacularly combines water, sound and light.
Nearby is the bustling Old Town, an energizing mix of Arabian tradition and modern luxury. By day, explore the market squares, twisting alleys and waterfront walkways, visit boutiques or stop by the cafes and restaurants for a coffee or meal with friends. By night, the lantern-lit streets are a hive of activity, music and entertainment. The Old Town brings together all the character and culture of Dubai, past and present.
Downtown Burj Dubai is a destination that is a distinct mix of traditional and modern architecture where people live, work and play. This is one of the world's most prestigious square kilometers, home to pioneering businesses, sleek bars and restaurants and state-of-the-art attractions, all of which are balanced with pockets of tranquility and calm, like landscaped gardens and a lake.
All this is just 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport and close to the Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC), Business Bay, Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai Convention Centre and Sheikh Zayed Road. It is a fitting setting for the new Armani Hotel Dubai.
THE ARMANI HOTEL DUBAI
What you will find at The Armani Hotel
Exclusively accessed through its own Grand Entrance, the Armani Hotel Dubai occupies eleven floors of Burj Dubai, each one reflecting the essential values of pure elegance and sophisticated comfort that define the Armani style.
Materials have been personally chosen by Giorgio Armani for both their sculptural and tactile qualities. These include stone, zebrawood, Venetian plaster, and fabric and leather wall coverings. Bespoke furnishings have been designed for the hotel, and together they represent a symphony of clean lines and practical comfort.
Covering more than 40,000 square meters, the hotel features 160 guest rooms and suites, a luxury Armani/SPA, swimming pool, library, fitness center, business center and eight restaurants. Within the hotel are the Armani/Dolci chocolates and sweets store, the Armani/Fiori flower shop, the Armani/Galleria, and the Armani/Club and Armani/Prive, both firsts for the Middle East.
GUEST ROOMS & THE ARMANI RESIDENCES
At The Armani Hotel Dubai
Armani’s signature style is woven into every one of the 160 guest rooms and suites. There are bespoke fabrics and furnishings, mirror-smooth
marble floors, personally designed amenities and toiletries, entertainment systems, even Butler Stations serving freshly-ground Italian coffees, wines and gourmet snacks.
Each detail of the guest rooms, on floors 5 to 8, and suites, on levels 38 and 39, expresses the hallmarks of the Armani brand: elegance, confidence and sophistication.
Alongside the hotel, Armani Residences Dubai continues these themes, with each of the apartments striking the perfect balance of form and function, beauty and practicality. Designed for extended stays – or simply additional space – these residences feature intelligently zoned interiors with panels, lighting and rounded partitions that define space and enhance flow at the same time.
RESTAURANTS AND LOUNGES
At The Hotel Armani
The myriad of dining experiences reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the city. Housed across multiple floors, there are authentic Italian, Japanese, Mediterranean and modern Indian restaurants.
Each one represents a culinary journey, a few steps from your door.
The restaurants are complemented by the Armani Lounge where pre-dinner Aperitivos are served, Milanese style.
As the evening cools, the region’s first and only Armani Prive club comes to life, serving up modish tunes and inventive drinks until the small hours.
CONFERENCES AND BANQUETS
At The Hotel Armani
The 30,000 sq feet of conference and banqueting facilities exude the sense of pure sophistication that lies at the root of the Armani style.
The Armani Ballroom, with room for up to 350 people, combines Armani's signature style with advanced technologies. In addition to this dramatic space there are further facilities including multifunction meeting rooms, a dedicated boardroom, flexible meeting
lounges, and the Armani Pavilion - an impressive outdoor area with sweeping views of The Dubai Fountain, the tallest performing
fountain and beyond.
SERVICES AND FACILITIES
At The Armani Hotel
To stay at the Armani Hotel Dubai is to enjoy all the easy and relaxed hospitality that Giorgio Armani extends to his personal guests at his own private residences.

Every detail of your stay has been carefully considered; the Armani Hotel Dubai has been conceived to cater for the most discerning of guests.
And for those seeking to restore natural balance, the Armani Spa is tranquility by itself: 12,000 square feet of peace and quiet, nourishing
and nurturing. This one-of-a-kind spa includes treatment rooms, thermal suites, a fitness center and an outdoor swimming pool.
