Raffles Dubai last night held a function to mark the opening of its luxurious Dubai Floor suite.
The 14th floor suite, formerly the owner’s (Sheikh Manna Al Maktoum), has been handed back to the hotel to sell, and rates are among the highest in the city at around Dhs85,000 a night.
Spanning 2,000sqm, the suite, which has three wings pealing off from a central welcoming area, contains Deluxe Landmark, Executive Landmark and Ambassador Suites.
A spacious Majlis is complemented by lounges on each side which feature large balconies providing expansive Deira and central Dubai views respectively. The most striking features are a discreet nine-seater cinema and private beauty salon.
Guests can take a private or public elevator, check in any time of the day or night and avail of dedicated butler services.
The suite is likely to appeal to wealthy GCC nationals, already one of the hotel’s key demographics, along with high-level dignatories.
