Gevora will unseat the current title-holder with its 356-metre-high tower.
We’ll be able to take our staycations to new heights later from tomorrow, with the opening of the world’s new tallest hotel.
That’s right—Dubai, which is already home to the world’s tallest building, will welcome a skyscraping addition to its accommodation offerings on February 12.
The title of world’s tallest hotel is currently held by the 355-metre-high JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Business Bay, which will be ousted into second place once the 356-metre-tall Gevora opens.
Situated in the Trade Centre area on Sheikh Zayed Road, Gevora will house 528 rooms across its 75 floors, as well as a bundle of dining options.
There’ll be four restaurants inside, What’s On Dubai reports, including an all-day diner and coffee shop.
For leisurely lunches and dinners, you’ll find a fine dining restaurant on the 12th floor, plus a pool-side bar serving food.
The hotel will also feature a health club and jacuzzi, as well as a luxury spa on the topmost floor, What’s On adds.
When opened, Gevora will join 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.
