Iconic hotel in Downtown Dubai was scheduled to open on November 1
The opening of the new Address Sky View Hotel in Downtown Dubai has been delayed.
The iconic hotel, which boasts 169 hotel rooms and 551 apartments, with a floating sky bridge and 70-metre long infinity pool some 220-metres from the ground, was due to open its doors on November 1.
However, David Simon, general manager, Address Sky View, told Arabian Business: “The Address Sky View opening has been delayed by a few weeks to ensure that we give customers a truly impeccable experience from the very beginning.”
Earlier this week the hotel hosted the Women in Leadership (WIL) Economic Forum.
As well as the infinity pool, the hotel also has a glass slide which takes guests down, outside, from the 53rd floor to the Sky Views observation deck. There is also an adventure walk, taking those brave enough around the rim of the building secured by a harness.
For others looking for something a little more relaxing, there is an 8,000 sq ft spa on the 54th floor, two swimming pools on the lower deck, a pool bar with live entertainment every evening, a small jazz lounge and a lobby lounge with a new afternoon tea concept from 10am to 10pm.
And foodies are well catered for. On the 54th floor, there is Ce La Vi, while Brazilbanese combines food from Brazil and Lebanon, and there is a patisserie, an all-day dining restaurant and a coffee shop.
