Another new hotel opened in Dubai last night. But not just any hotel...the new Armani Hotel in the wonderful Burj Khalifa (world's tallest building, if you've been living under a rock for the last few years..). It was supposed to open last week but the ash cloud delayed things a little.
Despite our best efforts we couldn't secure an invite to the super-exclusive event. Word on the street from those who were lucky enough to make it to the party is that Naomi was there....further celeb sightings to be confirmed. My good friend A has been inside for a sneak preview, and testifies that it is just as gorgeous as you would expect. We're having an agency party there in May, but I don't think I'll be able to wait that long to get inside for a look!
The fact that it's literally a six minute walk from my office and staggering distance home to my apartment also makes it a tip-top location all round. It's as exclusive as you would expect from a hotel in uch an iconic building, so much so that in order to even gain access to the hotel for a drink, you have to have a reservation. They do the same at the Burj Al Arab (too many tourists going in for a gander and causing a kerfuffle) but this is no hinderance. We'll book. We'll go. I'll keep you posted.
