The striking new, 5-star hotel by Burj Khalifa - the world's tallest building - blends the dynamism of Dubai with colourful creativity and French flair.

Swim under the stars on a vast terrace overlooking Burj Khalifa, which soars skywards over Sheikh Zayed Road. Sip exquisite cocktails watching Dubai Mall's fountains dance, 31 floors below. Indulge in cutting-edge cosmetology in So SPA.

Tantalizing aromas waft from fine-dining Asian and steakhouse restaurants, 24-hour open kitchens, and a cosmopolitan bar and patisserie.

Rising gracefully amid the skyscrapers of downtown Dubai, the hotel's blue mirrored fa├žade reflects the sea, blocks away; sandy marble at the rear recalls the desert. An air-conditioned walkway whisks you to the world's largest mall and Dubai Metro.
