No-one has yet been allowed a sneak peek at the Westin as it rattles towards an opening sometime in July, but we do know it will not divert too far from the well-trodden and very successful path taken by sister branch in Dubai Marina.
The names, and not a great deal else, of four restaurants and/or bars have been confirmed – there will six in total – including Il Capo, a high-end Italian, and Cook Hall, a modern, warehouse-style spot. There’s also the Firefly Lounge. Outside, meanwhile, there will be three swimming pools and a kids club.
There are 13 categories of room, from the relatively modest Deluxe King right up to the ten-times larger Heavenly Suite, which sleeps five and has a cinema room and pool table.
