Currently under construction in the world’s largest man-made marina in Dubai, Ciel Tower will become the tallest hotel in the world reaching a height of 1,181 feet. 

The curved forms of the building are meant to gently reflect in the setting sun while the design scheme emphasizes the verticality of the tower and is meant as a response to vertical living.

The glass and metal hotel will comprise 1,042 luxury suites as well as serviced apartments. The building’s crown contains a rooftop pool, a specialty restaurant, and an observation deck. Other amenities include a fully-equipped spa, a business lounge, laundry service, multiple restaurants, and a gym. The amenities are distributed vertically through the tower, each being accompanied by a sky terrace with views of the Arabian Gulf.
