Armani Hotel Dubai
The 160-room hotel on the lower floors of the Burj Khalifa is decked out head to toe in bespoke earth-toned Armani/Casa furniture and fabrics.
What we loved Having our personal “lifestyle manager” book our spa treatment: a massage and body wrap that had us swaddled in black Armani silk.
If you only have one night Splurge on the four-course tasting menu at the Italian Ristorante, where an unrivalled view of the Dubai Fountain is pure dinner theatre as you savour truffle risotto and salt-crusted sea bass.
Bonus An underground pathway links the hotel to the 12.1-million-square-foot Dubai Mall, complete with ice rink and shark-filled aquarium.
