Dubai will continue to be home to world’s tallest hotel, as the emirate is all set to open the ‘Ciel Tower’ in 2023.
The emirate, popularly known as city of the 21st century due to its smart buildings and glitzy towers, is already home to world’s tallest hotel, the ‘Gevora’, located on Sheikh Zayed Road, with a height of 356.3m.
While Dubai is already home to 12 tallest hotels in the world, out of the top 100, there are seven mixed-use skyscrapers currently, that are under construction across Dubai, which boasts height of over 309m, says Skyscraper Centre data.
Burj Al Arab was the first hotel in Dubai to become world’s tallest hotel at a height of 321m, in the year 1999.
Designed by Norr, the architect firm, and developed by The First Group, Ciel Tower will now be the tallest hotel upon its completion in 2023, at a height of 360m (30 feet higher than Gevora).
Located in Dubai Marina, the hotel is likely to feature 1042 suites upon completion, with contemporary interiors, and a Sky Terrace that provides 360-degrees vistas across The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina and the Arabian Gulf.
Ciel will have a rooftop pool, a Sunset Lounge at the 74th Floor, an observatory and a lounge on the 82nd floor, offering 360degree views of Dubai. A luxury spa and health club is to be located on the 61st floor of the building, helping guests unwind and relax, while enjoying the incredible ocean-front views.
The project is well on tract for completion towards end of 2023, with a grand opening planned for 2024.
