World class Italian designer Giorgio Armani has opened a brand new luxury hotel inside the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world.

Italian designer Giorgio Armani has opened the new exclusive Armani Hotel in the Burj Khalifa, offering the highest quality luxury trademark styling and furnishings. The hotel holds 160 guest rooms and suites, located on levels five through eight, with suites on the 38th and 39th floor of the 828m (2,717ft), 160-floor building.

The Armani Hotel is home to eight unique restaurants alongside the Armani/Privé, a chic and upscale lounge and the world’s first in-hotel Armani Spa. The hotel will also be home to the Armani/Dolci chocolates and sweets shop, the Armani/Fiori flower shop and the Armani/Galleria.

Employees at the hotel have commented that the design focus behind the hotel was to “keep it simple and elegant”. The interior is designed in plain shades of black and brown with no paintings on the walls, but simple, stunning wood effects and minimalistic furniture arrangements. The Armani Hotel is an image of pure, exclusive luxury.

A stay in a suite in the Armani Hotel can cost up to $11,000 for one night. And for those taken with the Armani style, levels nine to sixteen are home to the Armani Residence: luxury apartments for sale to private buyers. The luxury residences are decorated with an exclusive range of Armani/Casa furnishings.
