The new Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre has just been inaugurated, an exclusive hotel belonging to the Four Seasons Group in the DIFC pedestrianised zone, the location of international companies, art galleries, stores and some of the best restaurants in the city.
With just 106 rooms, of which 28 are suites, the Four Seasons Hotel Dubai departs from the traditional layout of the major luxury hotels in the city and is more like a cosy, intimate private club, a haven designed for relaxation and productivity.
The interiors were the work of Tihany Design of New York, which emphasised an elegant and contemporary style with the warm, encompassing hues of varnished woods with natural nuances.
The renowned hotel manager Carlo Stragiotto is at the helm and was previously the manager of the legendary Four Seasons Hotel Milan, where he worked with a team of 200.
“At Four Seasons, our role is to anticipate, personalise and sometimes exceed the standards in order to meet the needs of our guests,” said Stragiotto. As well as a sophisticated setting filled with art, the new five star Dubai hotel also guarantees a highly flexible service. “The arrival time does not matter…Four Seasons will turn itself into your own, personal hotel," Stragiotto promised.
The hotel is furnished with a room for work meetings that is open until one o'clock in the morning, where the office can be recreated for the day, with snacks and buffet available.
For those who prefer privacy, rooms and suites offer an ergonomic and complete workplace with international connections.
Among the other pluses of the new hotel area Spa and a fitness centre, the Penrose Lounge and the Firebird Diner, a tribute to the iconic American restaurant of the 1950s run by the chef Michael Minà, who offers his reinterpretations of classic American dishes using top quality ingredients.
On top of all that, there’s an open air glass swimming pool, the Luna Sky Bar with a terrace overlooking the Dubai skyline and the Churchill Club, which offers enthusiasts a selection of hand-rolled cigars imported from all over the world.
