The world’s tallest hotel is getting ready to open in Dubai, consisting of a whopping 75 floors and measuring 356 metres in height, as confirmed by the property to Time Out Dubai.
The Gevora Hotel, on Sheikh Zayed Road in the Trade Centre area, will contain 528 guest rooms and suites and four restaurants when it opens later this year.
The hotel is set to knock current record holder, Business Bay’s JW Marriott Marquis Dubai off the top spot (literally) by just one metre.
To put its huge stature in perspective, Gevora Hotel will be more than three times taller than Big Ben, 56 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower, and around equal to the length of three football pitches.
The developers haven’t scrimped on bedroom size, either. The smallest deluxe rooms measure 46 sq m, with the largest two-bedroom suite measuring a massive 85 sq m.
The new hotel will be a dry one and promises to “boast the best of Middle Eastern hospitality and exclusivity”.
As well as a main pool deck with swimming pool, Jacuzzi and kids’ pool, the health club on the 12th floor includes state-of-the-art facilities and separate ladies’ and men’s gyms for a vigorous workout or a refreshing quick dip.
If you’re a bit clueless when it comes to hitting the gym, fully qualified trainers are on hand to show you how it’s done. And when you’ve given your muscles a good work out, you can relax in the sauna and steam room, or better yet head up to the luxury spa on the 71st floor to unwind with your head in the clouds.
The property is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018, though the official date is currently up in the air… (get it?)
