“I am a minimalist, less is more... and when I looked at what was happening here it was the opposite ,” he said at the hotel launch. “But he wanted me and I wanted him.”
Emaar and Armani plan to open the next hotel, Armani Hotel Milano, in the Italian city in 2011. Other projects lined up include Armani’s first resort, to be located in Marrakech, and Armani residences villas in Marassi , Egypt.
A standard room in the hotel, which does not have a single picture on its walls, will cost 4,000 dirhams ($1,089) a night, while the best suite has a price tag of 40,000 dirhams.
A table at the Prive lounge, which is home to the world’s largest LCD screen, will cost at least 3,000 dirhams a visit, as guests can feast their eyes on Armani shows and videos.
The 160-room Armani hotel occupies six floors in the Burj Khalifa tower, which opened on Jan. 4, in addition to eight floors dedicated to 144 Armani luxurious residences.
But wait! The Armani Hotel has openned doors to some future surprises
Armani's hotel will soon have more competition. Rival Italian fashion house Gianni Versace SpA plans to open its own luxury hotel in Dubai later this year. Its claim to fame: an artificially cooled beach designed to keep sunbathing guests from getting too uncomfortable in the Gulf's scorching summer heat.
We love our Armani!
See u there!
