Instagram suitability meets lofty heights
The SLS Dubai Hotel and Residences opened on April 5th in the Downtown district and offers a 360-degree view of the city, with unobstructed views of the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Creek. The 75-story tower makes the SLS Dubai one of the tallest hotels and residences in the region. Designed by the architects Aedas and the interior designer Paul Bishop, the SLS Dubai has 254 rooms, 371 residential units, 321 hotel apartments and – in the spirit of SLS – contemporary art, simple accents and extraordinary furnishings. From Fi’lia, an exclusively women-run restaurant, to Carna, the steakhouse of the award-winning Italian butcher Dario Cecchini, not only the culinary facilities at SLS Dubai are proof of the hospitality that characterizes the SLS brand. Guests enter the hotel through the atrium on the ground floor and take an express elevator to the Sky Lobby on the 71st floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a large marble bar are the highlights of the S Bar, while the Privilege on the 75th floor is a nightlife meeting point with the two highest infinity pools in the region. The Privilege is also home to the iconic SLS brand duck, making it one of the top Instagram-worthy destinations in Dubai. The caviar bar 12 Chairs and the Ciel Spa complete the hotel experience. The SLS Dubai is the seventh SLS hotel, with 11 more hotels to open worldwide over the next five years.
