Designed by Toronto and New York-based Yabu Pushelberg and Tokyo-based studio NAO Tanlyama and Associates, the hotel's theme is a combination of California and Dubai. The property has 352 guestrooms, 85 suites and 40 residences.
The interiors of the property use natural materials and a palette of neutral tones, including the teal and bronze. Light and dark wood contrast layers of marble for a refined look against a hexagonal honeycomb motif. Contemporary furniture is paired with rich fabrics to juxtapose marbled bathrooms outfitted with handcut mosaic tiles and sculpted standalone tubs made from bronze.
Included among the eight F&B concepts is the 13th-floor wine bar Elevate, the Chinese concept Maiden Shanghai, and Quattro Passi, helmed by Michelin Starred chef Antonio Mellino.
The 18,030-square-foot spa was inspired by the Arabian sand dunes and the beaches of Santa Monica. The wellness facility has 14 treatment rooms, four open-air cabanas, a hammam, spa pool, relaxation lounge, café and fitness center.
On the 14th floor, the 6,458-square-foot Vista Ballroom has panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf for up to 350 guests. Three meeting rooms include a space measuring 2,637 square feet.
