It’s official, the tallest hotel in the world has been crowned.
The Gevora Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road has knocked the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai off the top spot and now it’s been made official by Guinness World Records.
The hotel, measuring a staggering 356m, consists of 75 floors, 528 guestrooms and three pools.
It is a mere one metre taller than the previous record holder, and has now taken the official title after being recognised by Guinness on February 9.
The building was formerly a residential one before work started three years ago to construct the four-star hotel.
To put its huge stature in perspective, Gevora Hotel is 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.
As well as speciality coffee shop, Le Veron, Gevora Kitchen will be serving international and local delicacies from a buffet and an à la carte menu.
By March, three more eateries are set to open, including a pool lounge, a rooftop lounge and a Middle Eastern restaurant.
The hotel opened its doors on February 12, promising the “best of Middle Eastern hospitality and exclusivity”.
The venue also features a health club and a gym with state-of-the-art facilities and a separate women’s-only area.
We can’t wait to kick back with our heads in the clouds.
