Wafi-based hotel says 14th floor transformed; will cost guests more than $27,000 per day
Raffles has revealed what it says is the most luxurious hotel floor in Dubai, valued at AED102,000 ($27,600) per day.
The 14th floor of the Wafi hotel has been transformed from the residence of Sheikh Manna Al Maktoum, the hotel’s owner, into private accommodation that is likely to attract some of the world’s wealthiest visitors.
Spread across 2,000 square metres, Dubai Floor includes a nine-seat cinema, three kitchens, a spa and hair salon, a majlis and six suites.
It is accessed via a private elevator and comes with a butler, chef, limousine service and custom linen. Guests also can select the floor’s scent.
Raffles general manager Andrew Abram said the luxury floor would be promoted around the world to high net worth individuals, families, brides-to-be and companies.
“Due to its size, design and facilities it is perfectly appointed to accommodate big families and VIP delegations,” he told Arabian Business.
“The floor is also ideal for brides-to-be, product launches, exclusive screenings for up to nine people in the private cinema- or for guests simply looking to experience the ultimate in comfort and privacy.”
Abram said luxury travel in the region had been increasing in the past year.
“We believe it is the perfect time to introduce the Dubai Floor and its facilities to our guests,” he said.
“The design and structure is similar to Raffles Dubai’s existing portfolio, however we want to offer our residents the opportunity to book a dedicated floor offering complete privacy and a luxurious home away from home experience.”
Raffles Dubai has 19 floors and 252 rooms and suites.
sounds a winning proposal to me. Good luck on the proposition.
