افتتاح فندق "أرماني" الأول من نوعه في العالم ضمن "برج خليفة" في دبي



دبي، 27 أبريل 2010: شهدت دبي اليوم، 27 أبريل 2010، ولادة معلم جديد في عالم الضيافة الفاخرة، مع افتتاح "فندق "أرماني دبي" الأول من نوعه في العالم في الحفل الكبير الذي قام به مصمم الأزياء العالمي الشهير جورجيو أرماني و الأستاذ محمد العبار، رئيس مجلس إدارة "إعمار العقارية"، بقص الشريط إيذاناً بالافتتاح المرتقب.

وينفرد "فندق أرماني دبي" بموقعه الاستثنائي بداخل "برج خليفة"، أطول ناطحة سحاب في العالم بأسره والذي طورته شركة "إعمار"، ومن المتوقع أن يصبح الفندق الجديد واحداً من أكثر الوجهات حصرية وفخامة في المدينة، ليرسي معايير غير مسبوقة على مستوى قطاع الضيافة في العالم.

ويقع "فندق أرماني دبي" بين طابق الاول والطابق 8 من "برج خليفة"، بالإضافة إلى الطابقين 38 و39 "، ويضم 160 غرفة وجناحاً، و8 مطاعم عالمية، ومتاجر حصرية، إلى جانب منتجع السبا الصحي. ويوفر الفندق لضيوفه إطلالات رائعة على مدينة دبي، وأجواء حياة عصرية. وتولى جورجيو أرماني شخصياً تصميم كافة مكونات الفندق والخدمات الاستثنائية التي يقدمها، بدءاً من الأثاث ومروراً بقوائم المأكولات في المطاعم ووصولاً إلى المرافق والخدمات المتوفرة داخل الغرف.

وبهذه المناسبة قال جورجيو أرماني: "لطالما كنت أحلم بأن يكون لدي فندق متميز تتوفر فيه كافة المقومات التي قد تشجعني شخصياً على الإقامة فيه، ودعوة عائلتي وأصدقائي لتجربه مفاهيم الحياة بأسلوب ’أرماني‘ الذي يتكامل بدفء أنماط الحياة الإيطالية المميزه بحب الضيافة والترحيب بالآخرين. ويسعدني أن نشهد اليوم افتتاح ’فندق أرماني دبي‘ وأن أدعو جميع أصدقائي للتعرف على عالمي الخاص".

ومن جانبه قال محمد العبار: "يتميز ’فندق أرماني دبي‘ بالقيم الجمالية العالية والإمكانات الاستثنائية في مجال تطوير المشاريع العالمية، وسيصبح نموذجاً يُقتدى به في قطاع الضيافة الفاخرة في المستقبل، إضافة إلى دوره الهام في جذب أنظار العالم إلى دبي وتحفتها المعمارية ’برج خليفة‘. وتطلب هذا المشروع الرائد عند تنفيذه اهتماماً كبيراً بأدق التفاصيل، وحرصاً على الالتزام المطلق بتوفير أجواء غير مسبوقة من الفخامة والرقي. ونحن على ثقة من أن جميع ضيوفنا الكرام سيلاحظون بأنفسهم مدى روعة التصاميم الداخلية للفندق والدقة المتبعة في تطوير كل جزء فيه".

وأضاف العبار: "يعتبر ’وسط مدينة دبي‘ أبرز مشاريع ’إعمار‘ ويُنظر إليه اليوم بصفه أرقى كيلومتر مربع في العالم، لكونه يوفر مجموعة كبيرة من المرافق الترفيهية ومراكز التسوق والمنافذ التجارية. وفي حين يعتبر ’برج خليفة‘ عماد ’وسط مدينة دبي‘، يأتي فندق ’أرماني دبي‘ ليثري أجواء التميز والفخامة في أطول مبنى في العالم ".
وتبرز في غرف وأجنحة "فندق أرماني دبي" التصاميم الدقيقة التي تحمل في ثناياها لمسة أرماني الإبداعية الخاصة. وتجمع هذه التصاميم بين البساطة والأناقة، وهو جوهر أسلوب أرماني في العمل، وتتكامل فيه المواد الثمينة مع التشطيبات الأنيقة لتوفر أجواء عالية التميز. ولقد عمل أرماني على هذا المشروع لنحو خمس سنوات، وأشرف بنفسه على كافة التفاصيل، وكانت النتيجة مشروعاً عقارياً استثنائي الفخامة، سواء من حيث أرضيات الإيراموسا الحجرية، أو ألواح خشب الزيبرا، والجدران المغطاة بالأقمشة الفاخرة، والعطور الرائعة التي تفوح في الحمامات ومركز السبا. إن الفندق هو بحق حلم أرماني الكبير الذي تحول اليوم إلى واقع ملموس.

World’s first Armani Hotel unveiled in Burj Khalifa, Dubai


• An integral part of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, the luxury hotel is located in the new heart of the city
• Introduces the unique Lifestyle Services concept, bringing a bespoke approach to hospitality and service
• Eight signature dining outlets offer a myriad of world cuisines



Dubai, UAE; April 27, 2010: The world has a new icon in luxury hospitality – the Armani Hotel Dubai.

The world’s first Armani Hotel opened today (April 27, 2010) with a ribbon cutting ceremony by fashion maestro Giorgio Armani and Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties PJSC.

With its landmark location inside the iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building developed by Emaar, the elegant Armani Hotel Dubai is poised to be the most exclusive hospitality destination in the city and a new benchmark for the industry globally.

Occupying floors concourse to 8 and levels 38 & 39 of Burj Khalifa, the hotel features 160 luxurious guest rooms and suites, eight innovative restaurants, exclusive retail outlets and a serene spa. The hotel offers sweeping views of the city complemented with a harmonious and stylish lifestyle environment. Every aspect of the hotel’s design and service offerings has been designed and planned by Giorgio Armani, from the bespoke furnishings to restaurant menus and in-room amenities.

On the opening, Giorgio Armani said: “It has long been my dream to have a hotel in which I myself would like to stay and entertain family and friends, where the Armani aesthetic is combined with Italian-style warmth and hospitality. I am thrilled to open the doors of the Armani Hotel Dubai and invite my guests in to experience my world.”

Mohamed Alabbar said: “Armani Hotel Dubai is a true celebration of superior aesthetics and world-class project development competencies. The hotel will be a referral point for luxury hospitality projects in the future, and brings global attention to Dubai and to Burj Khalifa. This project required extraordinary attention to detail and a commitment to true luxury, perfection and excellence. Our guests will witness and experience the passion and dedication that has gone into its development across every touch point inside the hotel.”

He added: “Downtown Dubai is our flagship project, and is regarded as one the most prestigious square kilometres on earth with incredible choices in entertainment, shopping, commercial and leisure outlets. The jewel at the centre of this neighbourhood is Burj Khalifa, and Armani Hotel Dubai is a sterling value addition to the world’s tallest building.”

Armani Hotel Dubai’s luxurious rooms and suites are an expression of minimalist opulence, with every detail bearing the Armani signature. Practicality and elegance, the cornerstones of Armani’s signature style, combine with precious materials and sophisticated finishes to create a highly personalised space. Dedicating nearly five years to the project, Armani personally oversaw every aspect of the hotel’s design. The result is a property that feels bespoke, from the Eramosa stone floors, zebra wood paneling and fabric covered walls to the scents of the bath and spa accessories. The hotel truly brings to life Giorgio Armani’s dream.

Hi all.

Great to see the hotel open. Some nice pics from inside also. Thanks isicman for your shots also.
I'm getting the impression the Armani residence handovers are also beginning today. If so that's 2 out of the 6 areas open - not counting the OD.

After the years of watching this project's construction phase it is good to see more of it enter the operation phase.
I hope we will get some indication of the handovers of the rest of the areas and ultimately the completion of the whole of the works.

I've got a milestone timetable to complete.

We missed something?

"The Burj Khalifa tower is now 90 per cent open," said Mohamed Alabbar, as he inaugurated Armani Hotel Dubai yesterday along with fashion maestro Giorgio Armani. The hotel, having suffered multiple delays, is Armani's first foray into the hospitality business and under the Armani Hotels & Resorts portfolio.
