Armani Spa and Emacs Properties have together decided to open up a collection of hotels, resorts and residences in key cities around the world and the first Armani Hotel opened to a gala gathering in Dubai. The lavish hotel occupies eight floors of the Burg Halifax in Dubai, which is currently the tallest building in the world. It was a proud Giorgio Armani who opened his first hotel to the world and the opening was followed by a runway show of Armani’s spring Privy collection.
The first Armani Hotel is inspired by the shape of a desert rose and the hotel rooms echo Armani’s austere style with no photographs or paintings adorning the walls. The main entrance of the hotel also features dramatic metal arches which draws inspiration from the traditional Arabic architecture. The hotel has eight restaurants and an Armani Privy nightclub.
