World’s tallest hotel tower’ in Dubai is a year away

Located in Dubai Marina, Ciel will overtake another Dubai-based hotel, Gevora Hotel


Dubai: It will be another year to go for the completion of the world’s next tallest hotel structure – the 365 metre high Ciel Tower in Dubai Marina. And a few weeks thereafter, the first guests will move into their rooms.

For Dubai itself, nothing much changes – the city will continue to host the ‘world’s tallest hotel tower’, with the Ciel taking over the title from Gevora Hotel, which is 356 metres high and located on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Designed by London-based architect NORR, Ciel will have more than 1,000 rooms, a glass observation deck on the 81st floor, and a signature rooftop Sky Terrace with an Infinity pool. Speeding on construction Construction is progressing as per the plan, with the project scheduled to complete in Q4-2023. The First Group’s chief development partner is China Railway Construction Corporation, the world’s second-largest construction and engineering company by revenue. The project made much headway during the peak phase of the Covid disruptions, hitting key milestones during the timeline.
