Armani Hotel in Dubai

Situated in the highest tower of the world Burj Khalifa, the Armani Hotel Dubai is one of the most luxurious hotels ever. The hotel is located on eleven floors of Burj Khalifa tower. Exquisite guests have an access to a number of restaurants, spas, saloons or a night club. The entire interior has been designed by Giorgo Armani himself. As for the architecture, Wilson Associates were assigned to create this unique design. Of course all used materials are luxurious: wood, cloth, stone etc.

As for the colors, gold as a symbol of wealth is dominating. Gold is for centuries the commodity that never loses on value and that is also the main idea of the concept. All the rooms look very neat and elegant, furnished in brown colors complemented by red. One can say that some parts of the hotel look very austere without the human warmth. Bathrooms are very interesting for example. At first sight they are made from wood when approaching it is evident that the material is marble. To spend a night in this exquisite hotel would cost you 2400 dollars per night, the breathtaking view on Dubai is included in the price.
