SLS Dubai has opened its doors to guests, marking the debut of sbe’s SLS Hotels & Residences brand in the emirate.

Located in an impressive 75-storey tower in the Downtown district, making it one of the tallest hotels and residences in the region, SLS Dubai offers 360-degree views of the city, Dubai Creek and icons including the Burj Khalifa.

The property features 254 expertly designed hotel rooms by acclaimed designer Paul Bishop, 371 residential units, 321 hotel apartments and in true SLS fashion, “contemporary art, sleek accents and exceptional fittings that are unique characteristics of the brand’s DNA”.

SLS Dubai also presents a host of “truly enriching and elevated experiences via its portfolio of diversely distinct luxury brands”. They range from Fi’lia, the entirely female-run restaurant that celebrates food and identity, to the Carna contemporary steakhouse by the award-winning Italian butcher Dario Cecchini.

On the 75th floor sits Privilege, a lounge and nightlife venue that’s home to the region’s highest two infinity pools while the Sky Lobby on the 71st floor not only offers stunning views, but plays host to S Bar, a lounge area where the menu is “playfully divided between healthy, angelic options and sinful, decadent ones”.

There’s also a coffee lounge, caviar bar and sbe’s signature Ciel Spa with treatment rooms, plunge pools, a hair and nail salon, a fully equipped gym and two outdoor terraces.
