Does Dubai have room for yet another five-star luxury hotel? The Langham Hospitality Group reckons the answer is a gilt-lined 'Yes', and expects the Langham Place Downtown Dubai will prove its point.
Located in the primo Burj Khalifa district and due to open in 2018, Langham Place Downtown Dubai will boast 168 rooms as well as serviced apartments, four 'food and drink' venues, a rooftop bar and lounge, Langham's signature Chuan Body and Soul spa and 400 square metres of event space.
Views will face towards the soaring Burj Khalifa tower and Dubai's Water Canal, with the hotel's location providing easy access to Downtown Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid City, Business Bay and the upcoming Dubai Design District.
Also within a relatively short drive are the Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai International Financial Centre.
Lo Ka Shui, executive chairman of Langham Hospitality Group, says Langham Place Downtown Dubai will create "a prestigious luxury lifestyle centre that will add to the iconic skyline in Dubai."
