World’s tallest hotel in Dubai Marina
Situated next to the Infinity Tower in Dubai Marina, the Ciel Tower is set to be stand 360 metres above sea level, home to 1,042 rooms across 82 floors, world class dining options, spas, lounges and a plethora of luxurious facilities. The best part, the skyscraper will play host to a glass observation deck offering panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab and JBR’s sprawling skyline. Check it out:
Gevora Hotel claims the world record right now
Two years ago, the Gevora Hotel opened its doors as the world’s tallest hotel soaring the skies at 356 metres, beating JW Marriott Marquis’ five-year record by hardly a metre. However, the reputation will be short-lived once the Ciel Tower completes construction.
