Following the opening of its first hotel in Dubai on Jumeirah Beach Road, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced the development of a second, complementary location in the heart of the city's International Finance Centre. Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Finance Centre will open in 2016, and will be managed by Carlo Stragiotto.
New York-based Tihany Design, which also designed several of the restaurants at Four Seasons at Jumeirah Beach, is creating the new hotel's interiors. With entrances at the ground level reception area and from the upper-level retail concourse, the property will blend with the surrounding 110 acre (45 hectare) International Finance Centre. It will have 106 rooms characterized by bespoke details and high-tech efficiency.
There will be four executive-style meeting rooms, a 24-hour restaurant, a lobby level tea lounge and terrace, sky bar on the 8th floor, and cigar room on the mezzanine, offering views of the Burj Khalifa. A spa and fitness center will also be available, as well as a rooftop garden with an above-ground glassed-in pool surrounded by private cabanas as well as a juice bar.
Four Seasons was founded in 1960. Currently operating 94 hotels and residences in 39 countries, and with more than 60 projects in development.
