The St. Regis Downtown, Dubai has opened along the Dubai Water Canal.
The property is located close to the city’s attractions and The Dubai Mall and is a short drive from the city’s design hub, Dubai Design District, and the International Financial Centre.
The property features 298 guest rooms and suites overlooking local landmarks such as the Dubai Water Canal and the Burj Khalifa. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, large bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, coral-inspired wall sculptures and butler service.
Food and beverage options include Italian restaurant Basta!; Bleu Blanc Oysters & Grill, inspired by the ‘convivial’ atmosphere of the South of France; The Library for afternoon tea; and the St. Regis Bar.
Other facilities include a six-treatment-room spa, complete with a flotation pod, hammam and 24-karat gold facial; a fitness centre and infinity pool overlooking the Dubai Water Canal.
In March 2022, the hotel will add an Astor Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, an outdoor terrace and bar space, lounge seating and an open fireplace.
