Hospitality group Accor is set to add a new property to its Fairmont Hotels and Resorts portfolio in Dubai.
It has partnered with RSG Group of Companies to sign the Fairmont Dubai Skyline hotel which is set to open in 2024.
It will be the third Fairmont property in Dubai and the seventh in the UAE.
The Fairmont Dubai Skyline high-rise will feature 54 floors across the 226m-high structure. The property will include 181 hotel rooms and suites, alongside 121 residences comprising of two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments. There will also be a full-floor penthouse located at the very top of the building.
Located on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, the architecture of the Fairmont Dubai Skyline includes asymmetric balconies, which will be lit upon nightfall with a spiralling 4.5km of lighting to give the illusion of movement.
The living spaces and designer furnishings will be curated by several top-tier designers including Kristina Zanic Consultants. The views from the tower include the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, Bluewaters and Ain Dubai.
