Four Seasons Hotels to open second property in Dubai at DIFC
Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of its second Dubai property, which is expected to open in 2016. Located at DIFC (Dubai International Financial Centre), the business epicenter of the city, the new property will complement the first Four Seasons in Dubai opened last year on the Jumeirah Beach. The new Four Seasons hotel in Dubai will be developed together with the same partner, Bright Start.
New York-based Tihany Design, which also designed several of the restaurants at Four Seasons at Jumeriah Beach, is creating the new hotel’s modern interiors.
With entrances at the ground level reception area and from the upper level retail concourse, Four Seasons will blend seamlessly with the
surrounding 110 acre (45 hectare) International Finance Centre while providing a welcoming retreat within. Its 106 rooms will be characterised by impeccable craftsmanship, bespoke details and high tech efficiency, as will four executive-style meeting rooms.
With Dubai now the world’s number one air travel hub, a 24-hour restaurant is one of many thoughtful features and amenities designed for the international business traveller. A lobby level tea lounge and terrace will provide a relaxed setting for casual meetings or shopping breaks, while the 8th floor sky bar and cigar room on the mezzanine will be the perfect places for after work cocktails with breathtaking views of the Burj Khalifa.
An intimate spa and fitness centre will offer a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation, and a rooftop garden will feature an above-ground glassed-in pool surrounded by private cabanas as well as a juice bar.
