Dubai’s Gevora has officially been recognised by the Guinness World Records.

Towering 356 metres in the air, one new Dubai hotel has a particular claim to fame.

Gevora, which is situated in the Trade Centre area on Sheikh Zayed Road, was last week confirmed as the tallest hotel in the world by the Guinness World Records.

The 75-floor hotel, which officially opened its doors on February 12, has shunted the 355-metre-high JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Business Bay into second place, meaning Dubai is now home to the world’s two tallest hotels.

The 528-room establishment has just offered up a peek at its interiors for those that have not yet visited, and it’s all looking rather luxe.

 

Think plenty of gold accents, cool geometric shapes and contemporary finishes.

The four-star hotel features an Instagram-worthy open-air pool on its 12th floor, with views of the Burj Khalifa (so you can see the world’s tallest building as you’re swimming in the world’s tallest hotel).

Gevora also houses a fully equipped health club with a steam room and sauna, a jacuzzi and kids’ pool.

Dining-wise, the hotel has five options, with specialty coffee shop Le Veyron and all-day dining restaurant Gevora Kitchen, which offers buffet and a la carte dishes, open now.

From mid-March, Gevora will add Middle Eastern inspired fine-dining eatery Level Twelve to its mix, along with the 12th-floor Overview Pool Lounge and rooftop Highest View Lounge, which will serve up Arabic and international dishes as well as shisha.

“We have created a unique formula which raises four-star hospitality to new heights and look forward to offering unforgettable stays,” said Jairaj Gorsia, general manager of Gevora Hotel.

Judging by the pictures, the rooms look pretty opulent, with metallic touches and plush furnishings—and all guests can use a butler service, whatever type of room they have.

Gevora joins a list of toweringly tall hotels around the world, including Kuala Lumpur’s Four Seasons Place, Thailand’s Baiyoke Tower II and China’s Wuxi Maoye City – Marriott Hotel.

Gevora aside, Dubai also houses a significant number of the world’s highest hotels (aside from the JW Marriott Marquis), such as the Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.

We’re looking forward to taking our staycations to new heights in the near future…
