Armani Hotel celebrates first anniversary in Dubai.

THE Armani Hotel Dubai, the first hotel designed by Giorgio Armani, in collaboration with leading property developer Emaar Properties, in Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, has celebrated its first anniversary.

In addition to hosting an array of global leaders and celebrities, the hotel has welcomed several thousand guests, who seek the finest lifestyle experience -- be it the signature suites and rooms designed by Giorgio Armani, a delectable range of food and beverage choices or the first in-hotel Armani/SPA.

Marc Dardenne, CEO of Emaar Hotels & Resorts, said: 'Armani Hotel Dubai has created a new benchmark in luxury hospitality, pushing the accepted norms and frontiers in the industry. The collaboration with Giorgio Armani brings a new level of aesthetics to the hotel. Additionally, the concept of 'lifestyle managers', who meet every need of the guests, introduced for the first time in Armani Hotel Dubai, has redefined service standards. 'The 'Stay with Armani' philosophy of Armani Hotels & Resorts has been overwhelmingly well received by guests, as it ensures they benefit from a 'home-away-from-home' experience that goes well beyond visual aesthetics. The hotel also enjoys several other special features, including the location in Burj Khalifa, which means it possesses unparalleled views of Dubai and beyond.' Located in Burj Khalifa, occupying the floors concourse to eight and levels 38 and 39, the hotel features 160 luxurious guest rooms and suites, eight innovative restaurants, exclusive retail outlets and a spa. Every aspect of the hotel's design and service offerings has been designed and planned by Giorgio Armani himself, from the bespoke furnishings to restaurant menus and in-room amenities. Practicality and elegance, the cornerstones of Armani's signature style, combine with precious materials and sophisticated finishes to create a highly personalised space.

The choice of restaurants, all hugely popular with guests and walk-in diners, includes a selection of world cuisines ranging from Japanese and Indian to Mediterranean and authentic Italian fine dining. Also popular among guests are the three exclusive retail outlets: Armani/Galleria, a haute-couture boutique offering fashion accessories previously available in Paris only and the first and only place in Dubai where the Giorgio Armani/Prive collection is showcased; Armani/Dolci, a luxurious confectionary store offering a selection of chocolates, biscuits, small savouries and more and Armani/Fiori, a floral boutique offering exquisite fresh flower arrangements and exclusively designed vases by Giorgio Armani, which follow the fluid shapes of the flowers themselves. And as part of the hotel's continuous commitment to originate value-added features, it recently introduced Armani/SPA, offering fully-tailored sensory experiences that suit individual needs. The Armani Hotel experience is now unfolding in Milan, Italy, where the second Armani hotel will open soon. More Armani hotels, resorts and residences are planned for the next few years in key international cities such as New York, Shanghai, London and Marrakech. Copyright 2008
