Acquiring the coveted title of World’s Tallest hotel from the Guinness Book of World Records, the 72-story JW Marriott Marquis Dubai officially celebrated its opening.
Soaring at 355 meters (1,164 feet), the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is just 26 meters shorter than New York City’s famed Empire State Building. In Dubai, known throughout the world for its awe-inspiring architecture, the hotel’s towers have already become an icon on the city’s skyline.
“Dubai is an important destination for Marriott International as one of the world’s most exciting cities offering world-class facilities and infrastructure, central location in the region and future growth potential, “said Arne Sorenson, Marriott International President & CEO.
The luxury hotel, which is owned by Emirates Group, targets the increasingly important MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) market by filling a long-identified gap in the region. The 4,000 square-meter Saray Spa and Health Club draws inspiration from the caravanserai silk route across Arabia, with treatments designed to ensure mind and body renewal. Treatments include the Signature Milk and Honey treatment, an Arabic Coffee Awakener, and Lemon Mint Body Polish. A sprawling pool deck covers the 7th floor of the hotel with a 30-meter swimming pool. Aqua Poolside Bar and Grill draws inspiration from Miami’s renowned South Beach, offering light snacks and beverages throughout the day.
