Fairmont Dubai Skyline

Accor signs deal for Fairmont Dubai Skyline

Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group with over 425 hotels across India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, lands key addition to the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts portfolio with signing of Fairmont Dubai Skyline. Set to open in 2024, Fairmont Dubai Skyline will become the third Fairmont property in Dubai and seventh in the UAE.

Fairmont Dubai Skyline will be in a unique destination, Dubai’s world-renowned Sheikh Zayed Road, and will offer awe-inspiring architecture through asymmetric balconies, which will be cleverly lit upon nightfall, with a spiralling 4.5 kms of lighting to give an illusion of movement. It will become the first high rise on Sheikh Zayed Road after Downtown Dubai, offering unhindered views of Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, Blue Waters and Ain Dubai.

Once open, Fairmont Dubai Skyline will feature 54 floors across its 226-metre-high tower, featuring 181 resplendent hotel rooms and suites, alongside 121 residences of two-, three- and four- bedroom apartments, offering 360 degree views of Dubai’s glittering landmarks, as well as a stunning full floor penthouse located on the highest floor.
