Located in the world’s tallest building, the iconic Burj Khalifa, Armani Hotel Dubai is the world’s first Armani Hotel and was unveiled by Giorgio Armani himself on April 27 2010.  Situated in two sections of this landmark building, from the concourse level to level 8 and also levels 38 and 39, the hotel offers 160 guestrooms and suites, eight restaurants, exclusive retail outlets and a serene spa.

At the
Armani Hotel Dubai, Giorgio Armani presents the Stay with Armani philosophy, which is based on the principle that travel is as much an emotional journey as a physical one.  Going beyond the stunning visual aesthetics of the physical environment, Stay with Armani offers a completely new form of hospitality under the Lifestyle Services Department.  From reservation to check out, and even beyond, each guest is assigned a Lifestyle Manager.  A personal contact and host, a Lifestyle Manager understands guests’ interests and discretely attends to their needs both in and out of the hotel.  Anything from a guest’s business and transportation arrangments, shopping, entertainment and dining recomendations are all catered to directly by their Lifestyle Manager.
