The world’s tallest hotel is currently being built in Dubai

A relaxing hotel experience awaits, 365-metres high in the sky.

Whilst the outbreak of the pandemic has devastated the travel and hospitality industry, Dubai developer The First Group is moving ahead with the construction of the world’s tallest hotel — Ciel Hotel in Dubai Marina. Are you excited?

The hotel, designed by award-winning architectural firm NORR, takes the form of a 365-metre-tall skyscraper — more than seven Olympic swimming pools in height — that will house 1,042 guestrooms, including 150 suites.

Guest amenities and facilities will include an observatory and lounge on the 81st floor, as well as a rooftop Sky Terrace, which will give guests the opportunity to discover the panoramic views of Dubai’s famous skyline, the Palm Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf.

Additional standout design features include a 300-metre-tall atrium with vertically stacked, landscaped and naturally ventilated terraces spanning the 82-storey building.

More than 11,800 cubic metres of concrete and in excess of 3,000 tonnes of steel will be used to construct the foundations of the luxury hotel, which is described by The First Group as the “world’s tallest hotel.”

“Ciel will set a new benchmark for innovative design in super-tall buildings, not just in Dubai, but globally. This landmark project will become an exciting addition to the famous Dubai Marina skyline,” Yahya Jan, President and Design Director for NORR, commented in a statement.

The award-winning hotel is set to dethrone the 356-metre-high Gevora in Dubai’s Shaikh Zayed Road, which currently stands as the world’s tallest hotel with 75 floors.

While the hotel is reportedly close to completion, Ciel will welcome its first guests in 2023.
