Raffles Dubai unveils the Dubai Floor, an exclusive-use sanctuary on level 14 of the iconic hotel, famously shaped like an Egyptian pyramid. The opening heralds a new take on luxury. Whilst other hotels may offer grand and impressive suites, Raffles Dubai is able to extend to its guests the ultimate in indulgence and privacy: an entire floor to enjoy.
Spread over 21,500 square feet,the Dubai Floor is a stylish blend of Middle Eastern and Asian décor, with dramatic panoramic city views. With six enormous rooms and suites, its own spa and hair salon, three private kitchens and a cinema seating up to 9 guests, the Dubai Floor is perfectly appointed for families and groups of friends; for a bride-to-be and her attendants; VIPs and their entourage; a luxury product launch; or a private screening. But above all, it is for guests wanting privacy, security and deep comfort.
Formerly the private accommodation of Sheikh Mana Al Maktoum, the owner of Raffles Dubai, access to the Dubai Floor is via a private lift, with 24-hour check-in, a private limousine service and a dedicated chauffeur, chef and butler. All the linen is customised for exclusive use and as a final touch, to complete the magic, guests can choose their favourite Arabian scents to perfume the rooms.
Commenting on the Dubai Floor, General Manager Andrew Abram told TravelPlus: “Luxury travel in the region has seen an increase over the past year and we believe it is the perfect time to introduce the Dubai Floor and all it offers to our guests. At Raffles we are always looking for the next thing for our clients, so to be able to give them an entire floor, with their own staff, everything they could possibly need, and as much privacy as they would have at home – is a tremendous bonus.”
The lead in rate for the Dubai Floor is AED 85,000 (£15,230) excluding taxes.
