The Armani Luxury Hotel Dubai is located in the heart of this famous modern city. Dubai brings to mind a million different images. It is the most populated city in the United Arab Emirates so one always imagines a vital, bustling and thriving metropolis. It is also a city known for its unprecedented luxury so another image that immediately springs to mind is that of shopping malls more akin to theme parks offering everything under the desert sun that money can buy. Dubai is also known for its ultra-modern architecture that has created an oasis out of sand for the discerning global traveler. It is a city of decadence, of luxury, a Middle Eastern city that prides itself on its ability to provide excellence in every international arena.
As a centerpiece of Dubai, this new world capital, stands Burj Khalifa, an 830-meter tall tower that dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline with its modern design and awe-inspiring modern beauty. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest artificial structure in the world and stands as an amazing centerpiece to an area which is Downtown Dubai, also known as the world’s most prestigious square kilometer.
Located within this iconic skyscraper is the Armani luxury Hotel Dubai. This hotel is one that takes the guest on a journey of unprecedented luxury and sophistication from the moment they arrive and luxury hotel photographer Antonio Cuellar has captured the essence of this journey through the lens of his camera. It is a world of sophisticated beauty as is befitting of Armani and Antonio allows the viewer to experience a glimpse of this world of luxurious hospitality.
The location of the Armani Luxury Hotel Dubai is indicative of the unique experience that awaits all guests who are lucky enough to enjoy the accommodation and facilities offered here.

He wanted hotels that embodied beauty, elegance, and grace whilst defining superior service, immaculate design and incomparable luxury. When one sees the Armani Luxury Hotel Dubai it is immediately evident that his vision of luxurious beauty was achieved with this, his first hotel.
