The luxury hotel in the Burj Dubai is to recruit 600 hospitality professionals.
Six hundred hospitality professionals are to be recruited to work at Armani Hotel Dubai, the luxury hotel to be located within Burj Dubai.
A recruitment drive spanning 16 countries will take place to ensure the hotel is served by a cosmopolitan team of staff, according to a statement on Tuesday by Armani Hotels & Resorts, a partnership between Dubai developer Emaar Properties and Italian fashion and luxury goods group Giorgio Armani.
The hotel will occupy concourse level to level eight, in addition to levels 38 and 39 of the tower, which will become the world’s tallest tower once complete.
Further hotels under the same portfolio will be opened in Milan in Italy, Marassi in Egypt, and Marrakech in Morocco, with New York, Shanghai and London other international destinations to be targeted, according to the statement.
A total of 160 guestrooms and suites will feature within Armani Hotel Dubai, which has ben personally designed by Giorgio Armani.
It will offer restaurants, a conference and banqueting facility, night club, spa, chocolate and sweets shop, florist and gallery.
Burj Dubai also features the Armani Residences Dubai, serviced residences designed by Armani.
It emerged in a media report on Sunday that Burj Dubai will not be completed until December, contrary to media reports linking the mega structure with a “soft opening” in September to coincide with the start of operations on Dubai Metro.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
The gorgeous clothes and interiors from this aged designer will be lovely, but he has no experience of running an inn. One hopes that in the 600 recruits there will be someone with proper hotel experience. Dubai fell for this branding exercise in 2003, yet has never actually looked at how badly it could fail.
The quality of services of Dubai's hospitality industry has been in serious decline for the past several years. Lets hope that Armani train and retain the best, to reverse this trend. Tom
Who is doing the recruitment? Emaar or Armani? How does one apply? Does anyone have any insight into this?
All sources of info tell you to register online at Armani Hotels website... unfortunately there is an error and this is impossible. DOes anyone know where to send out the cv???
Hi, I just made the interview for the new Hotel&Resrota and I fot an offer. I made the interview here in Italy with an italian director of operations...but the contract will be with Emaar.. I hope to be usefull. Ciao
To apply you have to send your cv at the general mail (contact) you find in the web site...then they will send you back an application form and...so on!
Anna, you have to go to "contact" at the Armani website because after almost 45 minutes of filling out the online application, it didnt work. Noone said that outside of fashion and hotels, Armani was the world leader in websites.....:-( Tell them your problem and .... A lady named Sara will send you a copy by mail and you fill it out and send it back to her.
Thanks for the info.
