Dubai is a global city at the heart of the UAE. It has many attractions for business, tourist and sporting events.
On 9th February 2018, the world’s tallest hotel, Gevora Hotel was unveiled. Located on the Sheikh Zayed Road, the construction started in 2005 and finished in 2017. It was initially supposed to be a residential tower but was changed into a hotel during the construction. Its design was done by Al Turath Engineering Consultants and there were many contractors. After the construction of the hotel was over, a crown was installed as the finishing touch.
The 4-star hotel has a record of being 356m (1,167.98 feet) tall, which has given the skyscraper the tallest hotel by the Guinness World Record for which the plaque is proudly displayed in the lobby.
It has 75 floors, 232 deluxe rooms, 265 one-bed deluxe and 31 two-bedroom suites. The hotel is coloured with marble and gold elements. As many foreigners travel to Dubai, it provides luxuries such as a pool, Jacuzzi, health club and spa on the 71st floor. In the first floor, there’s a coffee shop called Le Veyron Café next to the lobby. It has five restaurants at various floors offering international and local cuisines. There are plans to add two more restaurants, one on the top floor.
It also has a parking garage, a building on its own which offers facilities such as a pool and is connected to the main hotel through a skyway. It is conveniently located near many other buildings such as the Dubai Mall and Dubai International Airport. The rooftop gives a wide and beautiful view of the city of Dubai.
So next time you go to Dubai, enjoy your stay in the world’s tallest hotel!
