The world’s tallest hotel is coming up in Dubai Marina. When it opens by early 2023, the Ciel in Dubai Marina will reach a height of over 360 meters, making it four meters taller than the current title holder, the Gevora on Sheikh Zayed Road.

The Ciel, a project by First Group and designed by international architectural firm Norr, will have 82-levels and house 1,209 luxury suites and serviced residences upon completion. Featuring contemporary interiors and a glass observation deck providing 360-degree vistas across Dubai Marina, The Palm Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf, Ciel will be an exciting addition to Dubai’s skyline, said the project owner, First Group in a statement.

The property recently won top prize in three categories at the prestigious 2019 International Property Awards. Speaking on the win, the CEO of First Group, Rob Burns said, “We are extremely honoured to receive these prestigious awards for Ciel.” He added that Ciel is a remarkable project that will become “a landmark in its own right, further enhancing Dubai’s reputation as one of the world’s great cities and tourism destinations.”

“The ambition and character evident in Ciel’s striking design reflects our unique approach to developing quality hotels that strive to set a new benchmark for upper midscale accommodation,” said the CEO. He further pointed out that Ciel’s design highlights include a rooftop leisure deck featuring a swimming pool, fitness centre and steam rooms. The rooftop area will also house two of Ciel’s four world-class dining facilities.
